Rose Pistachio Macarons

I used to be obsessed with eating macarons, and when I first saw a video on how to make them, I was super intrigued. I started reading more about how to make them and found so. many. websites. A lot of websites were dedicated to trouble shooting, and I quickly realized these things must be […]

Beef and Broccoli with Garlic Sauce


Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe we all have a special place in our hearts for Chinese take out. There’s just something about the flavors, the packaging; how no matter where you go, the stock images above the register look the same and how it’ll always be ready in just 15 minutes. The […]

Panzanella Salad


What is it about bookstores that make them so comfortable to take a poo in? Real lady like, I know. While we made our trek inside a bookstore in our city, I decided to take a gander through the cookbooks. I had been wanting a new one, and I wanted one that I’d actually use. […]

Monday Mess | 3

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

It’s hard to be vulnerable every week like I wanted. Some weeks I haven’t really processed my life to figure out what exactly it is that is making a mess, I just know some days I just feel a mess. Not every day, just some, and it’s more of a slump. I always knew I […]

Salmon Meuni̬re РThe Legend of Zelda


Today is a true honest post on here because I’m going to have my gentleband share a recipe. Why is it a true honest post? Well, because he is more of the cook in our household. I work in the food industry, and sometimes, actually often times, I come home and just need to lay […]

Cold Brew


Oh my Lordy, isn’t it hot out? Heat and I don’t always mix well together. My poor gentleband has to feel my impatience when I’m hot and living in Florida; it happens quite often. Every summer, I ask him why we still live here. I love where we live, I just can’t get over why […]

Monday Mess | 2


Last week, I shared the purpose of these installments on my food journal, and I shared my first mess. I don’t want to just share a physical mess, I want to share mess ups. This week I’m sharing a thought I’ve been having and it’s not just something I do, it’s something we all do. […]

Muscovado Cardamom Peach Galette


Summer time means peach season is upon us. I grabbed a small paper bag and filled it with peaches while in the produce section of one of my favorite markets. I smelled the bag and was thinking how lovely the smell of peaches is. I think that anything peach scented does an injustice to this […]

Monday Mess | 1


I spent last week trying to figure out how to create more content for this little place I call mine in this series of tubes. I can’t always create something, because this isn’t my full time day to day. This was something created for myself to have an outlet to push my creativity, my knowledge […]

Roasted Rhubarb Vanilla Bean Scones


I recently had the opportunity to interview a handful of people who were interested in baking in a kitchen. Interviews are always weird; I never know what exactly to ask while avoiding creating too cliche of an interview. I think interviews go both ways. It’s an opportunity not just to see if the employer finds […]
