How many times do I hear myself say, "where is that big orange binder?" or "has anyone seen that big orange binder?" The big orange binder has been accumulating recipes, kinspiration & original recipe cards tucked into plastic sleeves for my entire-almost-forty year existence. "The Big Orange Binder" is an organization attempt. It's a recipe with a story neatly packaged in a place where I'll always be able to find the ever-elusive . . . Big Orange Binder.

A touch of this and a dab of that chocolate cupcakes

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup vegetable oil (or 1/2 cup of butter)
1 cup water OR buttermilk OR milk (whole is best)
1 tsp vinegar

Mix.  Mix well.  No lumps.  So mix the heck out of this.  Beat for at least 3 minutes on medium speed.  Add a xnack-cup of chocolate pudding as a final addition, then mix some more.  Pour into foil or paper lined cupcake tins.  Bake until they spring back when touched.  Cool.  Frost.  Enjoy.
