BIRTHDAY BOO BOO + CINNAMON ROLLS

February 26, 2017

It’s boo boo’s birthday! Haha jkjk that was like 2 weeks ago now but I’m finally getting around to posting the cinnamon rolls I made in celebration. I was planning on making a cake too but I guess that was a little too ambitious. Let’s just say I wasn’t expecting the sugar crash after having oh, 2 to 3 of these for lunch. This was the day we got that huge snow storm so we were in full hibernation mode on the couch the majority of the day binge watching Blind Spot. << Wouldn’t want it any other way.

RASPBERRY ALMOND TRUFFLES

February 14, 2017

Happy Valentines Day!! Make these truffles for your boo boo like I did! They are super easy and you probs have everything you need in your pantry. Oh, you don’t stock coconut cream??

Jeez, you’re SOL. Continue Reading

Yep, this is the one I dropped after I singed my enchiladas *caught mid-air* hence the uneven-ness of the cake itself and the crumble topping in the center. Lost a bit of the crumble but threw it in the oven anyway bc butter, sugar, and flour can never taste bad, no matter what it looks like – says me. And who can really tell that its uneven besides me, right? Say right. Continue Reading

BLACK BEAN ENCHILADAS

February 4, 2017

When I first started to cook my boss at the time said to me, “if you can read, you can cook”, and that’s what I did. I collected cookbooks, followed recipes, learned techniques, took pieces of my favorites and eventually…started making my own.

Teaching myself to cook and this blog in general has been a lot of trial and error. I’m not a professionally trained cook by any means. I don’t come from a family with deeply rooted recipes. I’m not the best writer and I definitely do not know what the hell I’m doing with my DSLR. I’m getting there, give me a break. Lol! Continue Reading
