When the new facebook cooking and cookbook group I’m a part of chose Julia Child’s Mastering the Art of French Cooking as their Jan 2017 cookbook I was psyched! Since breakfast is my jam (in case you don’t know), I was super excited to find she had a recipe for 6-minute soft boiled eggs . . .
I was on a bit of a bibimbap craze a while back and pinned some recipes. Well – I guess the mood finally struck and I decided it was time to try this at home. I knew it wouldn’t be as good as Mandu or any food truck, but I had to try it. If anything, it would be a modified stir fry. Here we go . . .
Yesterday was Cinco de Mayo – one of my top three favorite holidays of the year! One of these days I am going to make the perfect cross between a Paloma and a Margarita. Alas, for now, I am just going to have to settle on crafting the perfect recipe.
So, Ben’s 28th birthday was yesterday and I knew I wanted to make him a cake. He loves beer and chocolate, so I thought this chocolate stout cake was the perfect thing to try!
I recently went to Panera Bread and ordered their Vegetarian Autumn Squash Soup, which is so delicious that I’ve had a craving for it ever since! I searched the Panera website, but alas, they had no recipe posted for their soup. So, I decided to make a “copycat recipe” . . .
I made these decadent rich and gooey chocolate cream cheese cupcakes. Here is the recipe I used! [. . .]
So, here it goes, my first “real” post since my two year hiatus!
Well, last month my Grandma, who we lovingly call Grammy, celebrated her 85th birthday! We had a family celebration with my parents, sister, uncles, aunts, and cousins — very lovely!
As soon as we knew we were planning a party, I knew that I wanted to bake her a cake. So, inspired by Picky Cook and Smitten Kitchen, I decided I would tackle a chocolate layer cake with ganache frosting.
