All about the movies

I took this from violettefemme

Apparently if you have seen over 85 movies you have no life.

I guess I'm a loser

Happy Fall and a recipe

I'm hoping everyone is having a good day today my shoulder and neck muscles ache but it's a manageable pain finally. I meant to post this recipe that I fixed for my daughters 12 birthday party. They are my kids favorite except for the pumpkin chocolate cupcake recipe that I posted a few times here. :)

Surprise Bottom Cupcakes

I box of chocolate cake mix as per directions

Filling: 8 oz cream cheese,1/3 sugar,1/2 t salt,I egg mix together and add 6 oz chocolate chips.

Mix and drop by teaspoons on batter in cups. Frosting optional....Bake as directed

I frost them with whipped chocolate or whipped cream cheese frosting both are so good. :)

Our favorite recipe :)

This is one of my family's favorite recipes. I leave out the peanuts and use chocolate chips instead of cranberries. My kids look forward to me making these.

Peanut Pumpkin Cupcakes

1-1/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1-1/3 cups sugar
1 cup canned pumpkin puree
2 eggs
2 Tbs. peanut or vegetable oil
1/2 cup dried cranberries or semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped roasted peanuts


Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease or spray or use paper liners.

Stir together the flour, baking powder, soda, cinnamon and salt, then set aside. In a large mixing bowl, mix the sugar, pumpkin, eggs and oil until thoroughly combined. Add the flour mixture and stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir in the dried cranberries(or chocolate pieces) and half of the peanuts.

Spoon batter into cups. Sprinkle with remaining peanuts. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. cool in pan for 10 minutes. Remove from pan.

Yield 1 dozen.

We like them so much that sometimes I use the whole can of pumpkin and double the recipe.

I have posted this before but with fall coming up and all the new friends I have made lately I thought I'd re-post this.
