kidvelociraptor’s Original Muffin Recipe

I’d like to think that I’ve perfected a muffin recipe base that can be easily altered to create any flavor. All one needs to do is add in the extra ingredients at the appropriate time, such as flavoring extracts, liqueurs, spices, ground zest, berries, fruits, jam, chocolate chips, crushed cookies or candy bars, candy pieces, nuts, food dye, cinnamon & brown sugar in melted butter, etc. Give it a try!

kidvelociraptor’s Basic Muffin Recipe
(Makes 12 XL Muffins & 12 Minis)

1 cup Oil or 2 Sticks Butter
1.5 cups White Granulated Sugar
1 pinch Salt
1 Tsp Vanilla Extract
(Optional: Food Dye, Flavor Extracts, Liqueur, Spices, Zest, etc.)
2 Eggs (Optional: 1 Egg + 3 Tbsp Egg White from carton)
1.5 cups Milk or Yogurt
1 1/2 Tbsp Baking Powder
4 cups All-Purpose Flour (Optional: Try substituting 1 cup of Cake Flour)
(Optional: Berries, Fruit, Nuts,
White or Milk Chocolate Chips, etc.)

1) In a large mixing bowl, melt butter, then cream with granulated sugar.
2) Add ingredients to batter in the order listed above, making sure to blend thoroughly before & after adding milk & eggs.
3) Mix in the baking powder & flour last, stirring until batter is thoroughly blended. (If adding fruit or berries, do so now.)
4) Preheat oven to 420 F. Line a muffin pan with paper baking cups, then fill each cup with batter. Bake for 15-20 min.

🔴 Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake 🔴

Filling Ingredients:
1/3 cup Melted Butter
1/3 cup Brown Sugar
1 Tbsp Cinnamon

Topping Ingredients:
1/2 cup Room-Temp Butter
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1/2 cup Flour
1 Tbsp Cinnamon

1) Pour batter into each baking cup until 1/4 full, then add 1 Tbsp filling to each cup. Top off each cup with more batter, stopping when cups are 2/3 full (overfilled cups will leak cinnamon goo all over your muffin pan, which is not fun to clean off after it’s hardened in the oven.)
2) Blend topping ingredients until coarse, & sprinkle on top of each cup. (Simple Easy Alternative: Sprinkle cups with white or brown sugar.)

Note: I tend to mix & bake food in slightly unorthodox ways. If you’re more comfortable sticking to the standard methods of combining ingredients, it shouldn’t dramatically alter your outcome.

Miscellaneous Thoughts, April 2015 Edition

My iPhone’s note program isn’t working, so this is the best place I could find to record & organize my thoughts.

Hanging out with Sarah seems like it might be the closest I could get to experiencing what it must be like for guys to interact with me. Sarah & I are both easily amused, with a low threshold for expressions of joy. We both laugh easily & often, as automatic as breathing. We’re both good listeners, attentive & present, & we listen in a way that makes the other person feel seen, & heard, & cared for. We intuitively leave them feeling as though they’re especially clever, & interesting, & funny, at least when they’re with us. But Sarah is sweeter, laughs even more easily, & can make me fall for all the same intuitive flirtation tactics I use with other people. It might sound manipulative, I don’t know, but I don’t think it is. Flirting & being friendly & attentive & laughing at stupid jokes allows me to enjoy conversations with almost anyone, & draw people out about the things that they’re the most passionate about, which always makes everything more interesting. & I make people feel good. What’s wrong with that? It’s practice for my eventual career as a courtesan 😉

…Wait, May is National Masturbation Month? That’s a thing? Ok, so it’s a actually been a thing since 1995, after Clinton fired Joycelyn Elders (Surgeon Gen) for saying masturbation is natural & awesome & should be taught in sex ed. Fuck Clinton. Just cause he masturbated into his interns & not with his hand doesn’t make him better than Elders. It makes him worse.
