Here's my go at this week's TWD Chocolate Chocolate Cupcakes.
Yes, it's kinda fruity, and yes, you're venturing into umbrella-drink territory; but we're at the dawn of summer—it's okay to put on your flowered shirt and relax a little bit. A Painkiller can help you shake out whatever winter stiffness remains, and prepare you for the long, hot months ahead.

Instead of flipping endless pancakes while everyone else eats, please a crowd with Ina Garten's baked blintz cake: two thin layers of cake surrounding a layer of sweet cheese filling and topped with blueberry sauce.
Brown sugar cakelets, also known as strawberry shortcake's brunchified cousins, provide an excellent opportunity for you to squeeze more dessert into your day and more strawberries into your summer.

Ricotta is one of the easier cheeses to make at home—it's especially tasty when fresh from the cheesecloth. The single step that makes cheese is adding acid to the milk, be it from lemon juice, vinegar, or buttermilk, in varying proportions. For this recipe you will need a big ol' pot, a non-reactive stirring spoon, a colander lined with cheesecloth, paper towels, butter muslin, or a very clean flour sack dish towel, and a reliable thermometer. It's pretty simple, and you get to call yourself a cheesemaker after.
Discovering the Pake (a pie baked into a gigantic cake) was something of an epiphany: talk about a way to make pie even awesomer. But it also prompted a question: what else could be applied to pie for an added dimension of delicious? The answer was clear, of course: a cookie dough coating. Introducing: the Pookie, a cookie-coated pie.
I was truly sold on this cherry clafoutis the next day, when I had a sliver straight out of the refrigerator; the flavor and texture of the custard were best when it was cold. Pitting the cherries takes some time, but otherwise this is truly a lightning-fast batter.
Any tips? My parents just gave me a cast iron pan to replace my trusty non-stick (teflon! oh noes!) My mom already seasoned it, and warned me to be gentle. But when I cleaned it, I ended up with rust-like...
Oh, what I wouldn't give for my Grandmother's 3 perfectly seasoned cast skillets!! I have a few Lodge pieces, and one Griswald, and sometimes I feel I need to wash them with soap, which means I am forever reseasoning them....
