happy weekend.

if you're the only one on campus this weekend because of easter or if you have a penchant for baked goods that look like tiny versions of other things, make these chocolate-chip oatmeal cupcakes.

i accidentally (okay, purposefully), used baking powder instead of baking soda.  i can't help it that our suite had 3 CANS of baking powder unopened and 0 boxes of baking soda.  we were hoarding it for the baking powder apocalypse.

and just so you know, baking powder is one-third baking soda, which means your cupcakes won't rise and be fluffy. you're welcome.
