Poem: We Real Cool by Gwendolyn Brooks
Hi Readers! I first read this poem a couple months ago, and found it very interesting. It may seem simplistic or even confusing at first, but if one takes the time to read over it multiple times, they can see the true meaning behind it. I was actually quite...

I have always been a big fan of the TLC show, "D.C. Cupcakes". And ever since I saw the very first episode I'd been dying to go try it out myself. So, one weekend, I drove down to Bethesda, Maryland to try it out for myself. I had wanted to go to the original location in Georgetown, but a friend told me the lines were too long there. Once there, I picked out the two flavors that sounded the most appetizing to me: Red Velvet, and Cookies N' Cream. Both were absolutely amazing. The cake was the perfect mixture of dry and moist, I couldn't taste any chemicals whatsoever in the heavenly cream cheese frosting, and most importantly the flavoring was PERFECT. You haven't had a cupcake until you've tried a Georgetown Cupcake.
