{ Welcome to My Kitchen }

I am on some kind of a cupcake kick and I stumbled across a recipe for these beauties! { Shirley Temple Cupcakes } I grew up drinking Shirley Temples. No matter where we went I had to have one! For those of you who don't know what a Shirley Temple is it's Sprite, grenadine & lime, easy peasy!

I modified the recipe a bit but I think they turned out awesome! 

1 box moist yellow cake mix
1 tsp. vanilla
3 eggs
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1 1/4 c. Sprite (left out so it will go flat)
1/4 c. grenadine
30 maraschino cherries

Mix yellow cake mix as normally directed on the back of the box substituting the water with Sprite. Add the Sprite, grenadine and vanilla to your cake batter and mix well. Pour into cupcake liners. Place one maraschino cherry in the middle of each cupcake on top of the batter and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Cherry will sink down during baking and be a nice little surprise at the bottom of each cupcake!

Maraschino Cherry Frosting
16 oz white frosting
1/4 cup pureed maraschino cherries
1 tsp grenadine
lime zest to taste

Whip butter white frosting with grenadine until fully mixed. Add in pureed cherries. Mix until blended well and pipe onto cupcakes. Garnish with a maraschino cherry and tiny lime wedge.
Voila! Your very own 
Shirley Temple Cupcakes 
Bon App├ętit !

    I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose
