Key Lime Brownies

IMG_0079

Boom There are no words that can truly express the pure and utter joy I currently have. Not because we won the lotto or anything trivial like that. But because I can finally post these brownies.Let me tell you the story that led to this glorious moment. It all started when I was trying to think of something to do for my friends at Wilton. It had been a while since I posted for the …

Modern Blueberry Tarts

Oh, plans. I’m not very good with planning. See, the original plan was to celebrate the 4th season of Game of Thrones by posting a recipe from the official food blog, Inn at the Crossroads, every week during the season’s duration. I even went as far as getting permission and a thumbs up from the awesome Chelsea M-C, the co-author of the blog; and the official cookbook, might I add. The plan was ballsy for …

Counting Stars Look!! Food!!! It’s been a while, let me see if I remember how to do this.. I know it’s been a long time, but if you recall, I was/am on a diet. Weight Watchers to be exact. While I’m already a chiseled hunk of man, I could still benefit from losing a few. Between starting it around March and today, I’ve lost 20 pounds! I’d say that’s alright considering I haven’t included any …

Humpday Update – 5/7/14 – NYC Edition!

IMG_9335

Empire State of Mind (feat. Alicia Keys) It’s officially been a month without a food post. If you’re still sticking it out I feel like I should send you a fruit basket or something. But again, it’s not my fault! Unfortunately, I’ve been valuing sleep over blogging. I know, what kind of a blogger am I?! I’m an ashamed one. It’s been crazy around here lately. We’ve been driving up and down the east coast …

Humpday Update – 4/30/14

Sing Woo hoo! Another week with no food posts! Hey, look at it this way: if it wasn’t for the Humpday Update, you’d have absolutely no idea why there aren’t any food posts. I swear, it’s not my fault. I’ve had no time whatsoever to sit down. Heck, I haven’t opened my laptop since I posted last week’s update. The biggest reason? We took a weekend trip to Florida. Semi-planned, we headed out Friday around …

After the big thing that happened got spoiled for her she didn’t want it to happen again. …

The Freshman Class: Santa Cruz Episode 1 Thoughts

freshman

I know, I know. I said I was just going to delete them all but I couldn’t help it. I realized they were only 30 minute long episodes, so I figured I wouldn’t get that stressed out. If they were an hour long then this post wouldn’t exist. This subject is kind of a sour one for me. So please, do not get offended if you went to and loved culinary school. Or if I’m …

Humpday Update – 4/16/14

Valio La Pena I don’t always do it, but I try my best to keep up with fellow bloggers. I honestly feel like I’m doing something wrong with how I go about my days because I hardly ever have time to juggle my small list of hobbies. I mean, I’ve been itching to read a book for months now but I can’t sit down and enjoy it knowing I have posts to write, games to …
