Before MTV there were Scopitones
Thursday, July 14, 2011
What is going on here?
Well, it’s been an exhausting week… and there are some great posts on the way this weekend. In the meantime, for your viewing pleasure… another Scopitone! The singer kind of reminds me of actor, Kevin Corrigan, if he was in a bad wedding band.

This is a Book!
“Beauty Queens” is a satire, a dark comedy. The best comparisons that I can think of are all visual mediums… the movies and the TV series,
I am digging this book, so far. The characters are interesting and well-developed. The story is well-written, stylish and definitely entertaining.

When I bake from recipes, I tend to switch the ingredients to ingredients that I prefer… I usually use whole wheat flour or white whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour. Brown sugar or evaporated cane sugar instead of white granulated sugar… and so on. I also never measure spices… I just add as much or as little as I like.
Muffins that taste like doughnuts… Doughnut Muffins!
There are many of doughnut muffin recipes on the internet. I have tried a few of them. I eventually created one that was more to my liking and maybe to yours…. here it is. (I give you some measurements for spices – but, really you are on your own.).
Makes 12 regular-size muffins or 6 jumbo-size muffins.
1 ¾ cup white whole wheat flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon of cinnamon
1/3 cup of canola oil
¾ cup of light brown sugar
¾ cup of milk (I use non-fat)
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
a couple of tablespoons of evaporated cane sugar and cinnamon mixed together.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place paper muffin/cupcake cups in muffin/cupcake tin.
Combine dry ingredients in a medium size bowl.
Combine remaining ingredients in a separate large bowl.
Add dry ingredients to the large bowl, slowly mixing in.
Add mixture to muffin tin cups and sprinkle with sugar/cinnamon mixture.
Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 20 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Every oven is a little different.
Cool a little bit & enjoy!

Hey, thanks for checking out Style and Stuff! I’m Stacey Dawn. My love the 60’s and 70’s décor probably comes from my youth… I am over 40 after all. My musical tastes are a little bit all over the map… 60’s & 70’s pop/soft rock, exotica, 80’s new wave and 90’s alternarock. I read lots of fiction and some nonfiction… but, probably more fiction. Movie watching is a common occurrence in my home… some of my favorites include “Gidget”, “Empire Records”, “Almost Famous”, “Modern Girls” and all of the “Beach Party” movies (How can I not love Frankie & Annette?). I’m a pretty good cook and baker (according to my husband, Ken, anyway.)… it’s a challenge in our tiny kitchen, but it’s one I enjoy. I have been married almost 10 years to Ken with whom I co-host the Movies About Girls internet radio show and podcast.
