Book Review: Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck
Genre: Historical Fiction Ages: 13 and Up      I had always heard of this book and was told that it was an, "American classic." It wasn't until this year, though, that I actually had a chance to read it. I liked the novel when I first began reading it, but ...

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.
