Girl's Poker Night

Every once in a while, a few of us girls get together for a Girl's Poker Night. They happen rarely, and we welcome one and all (as long as they aren't too serious of a player). We don't play for money, and sometimes we rarely play due to the intense discussions about men, kids, celebrities and various other gossip that happens to crop up.

In between conversations, we play poker.

This time, we went to our friend's loft which was so posh I had to take pictures. It is a 3000 sq ft gorgeous exposed brick loft in a great area of town.

As you can see from the start of this poker post which is mostly pics of apartments, poker is a real priority of the evening.

We played a few rounds of poker, and ate some delicious desserts, candy, cheese and wine (though I think I was the only one engaging in wine consumption past the first glass).

Due to being on holidays, my motivation level is at an all time low. However, I mustered up some energy to make a new recipe for poker night today. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes.

Here's what you do:  Bake a white cake (from the box like me or from scratch) and pour the cake batter into a cupcake tin filling each holder 2/3 full.

Make a batch of cookie dough balls, or buy ready-made dough like me, roll into balls, and drop them into the white cake batter.

Bake in the oven at 350 for 16-18 minutes, and if you're lucky they won't turn out like this.

Not entirely sure what happened, but the cupcackes were hollow in the centre which they were not in the blog I looked at when I was cooking these bad boys.

Either way, even with the hollowness, when paired with the butercream icing they tasted pretty good.

Anyway, when it comes to poker, I rarely win.

But I always have a great time with the girls!!!
