Shrimps and Chili pepper rub. Put it on a stick and grill and yum.

In other food news. I stayed up making these beauties last night.

Strawberry and White Chocolate Cupcakes

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 pack strawberry jello
  • 1 cup butter
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 3/4 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1 tbsp vanilla
  • 1 cup mashed frozen strawberries
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together butter and sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time. Combine flour and baking powder in separate bowl and stir into batter alternately with milk. Blend in vanilla, jello powder and mashed berries. Divide into cupcake papers (cake is dense and doesn't rise very well so fill papers just about full-cakes will sink a bit after removing from oven). Bake for about 25-30 minutes.

  • 1 pound white chocolate
  • 1 3/4 cup butter
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
Melt chocolate in bowl resting above just-about-boiling water. Make sure bottom of bowl is not touching the water or chocolate will burn. This will melt nice and slowly, just stir as it melts. Remove from heat and let cool but not set. Cream butter until fluffy and add melted chocolate and vanilla. Blend in powdered sugar. Keep in fridge until cupcakes are fully cooled and frosting is good consistancy for spreading.
