Spring has arrived, and despite the craziness in the world right now. I decided to create a bucket list of things I want to accomplish this spring.
When I make Buttercream Frosting for my cakes, I want it to be light and fluffy. It can’t be too sweet or would make the cake overly sweet. There is perfect happy medium that needs to be obtained when it comes to the perfect buttercream. I think I have found a fool proof recipe that anyone can use.
I love trying new recipes. Especially, chocolate cake recipes. Yum! So to celebrate my birthday this year, I made a Devil Food Cake from King Arthur Flour cookbook, and … well you will just have to see for yourself. I loved this chocolate cake recipe because it was easy to put together. No strange ingredients….
Man discovered fire, and it changed the world. It allowed the art of the cooking was born shortly afterwards.
I love a good cake recipe for birthday parties. They are classic and elegant. Plus, birthday candles sit perfectly on top. For the most recent family birthday celebration, I decided to crack open my new cook book from King Arthur and try one of their classic cake recipes. I decided to go with their Classic Yellow Cake.
Over Instagram and Pinterest, you can find hundreds of cakes decorated with the trendy chocolate drip. The drip can be any color or made from either dark or white chocolate. I decided to try my hand at this trendy decoration with a birthday cake I made recently. I went with a dark chocolate drip and used this blog post to help create it.
I love exploring new recipes and cookbooks. The good ideas can come from any where. A popular magazine to an innovative blogger. I recently came across a cookbook that had a variety of recipes from different influences and chefs. The recipes range from easy to make to hard. This cookbook is called O, The Oprah Magazine Cookbook. All the recipes featured are from various chefs that submitted these recipes to Oprah’s magazine. If the sign off from Oprah isn’t enough to convince you to give this cookbook a look, just spend a moment to flip through.
This fictional show takes place deep in the heart of modern Tokyo. The diner is located off a quiet road from the hustle of city goers heading home with a traditional look on the inside and outside. Here in this little diner made up of a counter bar with stools along the edges. The owner runs the restaurant by making anything his customers ask as long as he has the ingredients. His colorful customers have a variety of dishes that they ask for, and each a different reason why they do it.
Being healthy is hard. Snacking is one of my biggest down falls. I seem to crave a little something around 2 to help me get through the day. The bag of chips at the vending machine looks all the more tempting and seems to be surrounded by a holy light summoning me closer. However, my snack could really be sweet or salty depending on my mood. So I have decided to pack my healthy goodies in order to beat the afternoon hunger. I also decided to share my healthy favorites for you to try for snacks in your daily pack.
I love a good ice cream. Andy’s Frozen Custard was a staple that my family had to visit when I was living in Arkansas. I was so happy to find this brand coming to Dallas and opening shops all over the city. They have powerful flavor combinations created from their two signature flavor Vanilla and Chocolate along with their thousand and one toppings.
