I’m not sure we should be encouraging anyone to put firecrackers in their mouth (I’m sure there was a 2001 episode of “Jackass” that already did that), but if you are yearning to munch on a firework without, you know, dying, you might want to whip up a batch of these firecracker cupcakes.

Winona: So Ami, I had this thought while I was making dinner last night. I really want to teach you to cook.
Ami: I would love that.
Winona: Because you hate cooking right?
Ami: I just don’t get it. I’m impatient and hate doing things I’m bad at.
Winona: As a perfectionist oldest child, I feel you, girl.
Ami: Plus, in my house growing up, no one cooked. Like nothing. It was cereal for dinner. I can cook eggs and chicken. That’s it. Keep reading »
