Red Velvet Brownie recipe… Sugar Orgasm.

As seen on Facebook:



Red Velvet Brownies
adapted from Smells like Home

1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
4 large eggs, at room temperature
2 oz red food coloring (optional)
4 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
6 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour an 9 X 13 clear glass baking pan.

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition, then stir in food coloring (if not using food coloring add 4 T of water or milk) and vanilla, mix until the color is fully incorporated. Mix flour, cocoa and salt in a separate bowl. Slowly add in the flour mixture being very careful not to over mix.. Do not over mix. The batter will be very thick.

Remove the bowl from the mixer and stir up the batter with a rubber spatula once or twice just to ensure all of the flour has incorporated from the sides of the bowl and there isn’t anything stuck on the bottom of the bowl. You’ll want one uniformly colored (red) batter.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake for 30-40 minutes. 35 minutes for a thin crust on top and gooey underneath. Set aside to cool, cut into bars and serve.

Is dissent in the Obama era patriotic or racist?

Remember when dissent was patriotic and pure, free of racism and ulterior motive?


I am sick and tired of people who say that if you debate and you disagree with this administration, somehow you’re not patriotic, and we should stand up and say, “WE ARE AMERICANS AND WE HAVE A RIGHT TO DEBATE AND DISAGREE WITH ANY ADMINISTRATION!”

Fast forward to today… Punk/Metal Icon Glenn Danzig Disses Obama, Calls Democrats “Fascists Disguised As Liberals”

My view on Democrats is that they’re fascists disguised as liberals, or liberal moderates. You’re not allowed to say anything that they don’t agree with. You’re not allowed to do anything. Also, the whole Obama, “I can kill anybody with a drone with no trial,” is kind of disturbing. I’m surprised that more people who are supposedly liberal aren’t more disturbed by it. I think whatever Obama does is OK with them, because he’s Obama. It’s bullshit.


Last night:

Piers Morgan interviewing The Butler director, Lee Daniels…

PIERS MORGAN: Lee, do you think that America is a more or less racist country since Barack Obama became president?

LEE DANIELS: Wow, that’s a powerful question. I think that people are angry that he’s president, and I think that they’re showing their true colors. And I think that, you know, when Danny Strong wrote those words, “Any black man could be killed by any white man and get away with it,” Trayvon Martin had not happened. I end the movie with hope, you know. He’s walking down, and Obama’s giving that famous speech, you know, and then I come out of my edit room and Trayvon Martin has happened. So, yeah, I think so. Sadly, I think so.

The GOP does not realize how well the Dissent = Racism meme is working with low information voters.

But this is bigger than the GOP’s prospects.  The Dissent = Racism meme is a blunt against ALL criticism.

Socialism? “Dog whistle”.

Redistributionist? “Dog whistle”.

Lackadaisical, disinterested in the job? “Dog whistle”.  Wait, no.

Pro-Welfare state? “Dog whistle”.

But… but… but…

Multiple Democrats now admit Obamacare redistributes wealth.

One should hope this doesn’t portend a predictable trend.

Obama Tells Black And Hispanic Voters Obamacare Is For Them…

Want IRS scrutiny? ‘IRS’ is The New N-Word. Ir is it? THE IRS SCANDALS

IRS agent: Tax agency is still targeting Tea Party groups

Calling him “Obama”? Believe it or not… “dog whistle”.
