It’s kind of like being raised a certain religion; I was raised to worship the Raiders and the USC Trojans.

Since the Raider’s didn’t make it to the Superbowl, my second option was to root for another California team to make it. Rosemary-Corn Muffins. Creme Brulee Cupcakes. Crème Brulee Cupcakes ~ Crème brulee nested inside a chocolate cupcake- Wow.
