One of the things I said I was going to do when I restarted my blog was transfer out some recipes and update some others. It’s kind of nice to go back and see some of the work you’ve done and how far you’ve come. I did this recipe redo before I flipped blogs, but I still think it’s worth sharing.
Is this fall enough for you? We’re on the cusp of winter, so I had to make sure I posted this before it snowed and it showed how long ago I took these without writing the post. >_>
The Happy Baker is easily one of my favorite recipe book finds. All of her recipes are non-chalantly related to her dating/home life, which adds a little bit of humor and solidarity to whatever you’re making.
As much as I love the book, Yum Yum Squares is not one of my favorite names for a recipe. I made these last Monday on periscope, since I had a serious case of the Monday’s. I was nervous the whole time I was baking them because every time I went back to the oven, my bars were still wiggly in the center, which is usually a no-go when it comes to the bars setting and cooking properly.
I was pleasantly surprised – and thrilled about the pseudo-pecan pie taste that magically happened.
Can I make “6 Second Food Review” a thing? Quick and to the point, I don’t hate it. Maybe hate my unruly hair, but I spent half my day painting so I don’t really feel bad about it.
I bought “Sweetos” while I was at the store the other day. Specialty items pop up regularly around the holidays, so while I wasn’t surprised to see the flavor combo (I mean, who doesn’t love cinnamon sugar during the fall/winter months), I was surprised to see Cheetos jumping on the holiday flavor bandwagon. I don’t recall them doing a lot of seasonal promotions, and the only other flavors I know from them are extra hot/spicy cheetos, so seeing them play in the sweet space was a new phenom for me.
I’ll admit, halfway through this recipe I forgot what I was making anymore. I was channeling my drunk kitchen, but for baking it is pretty hit or miss. I’m glad I had already gotten through the batter at the point where I decided my frosting was NOT going to be fancy.
I’m glad I didn’t do fancy frosting anyway. The container I kept these cupcakes in, when I opened it the next morning I almost fell over. Because bourbon.
It looks like there are a lot of great things that come out of Massachusetts – who knew that one was going to be tea flavored? (Insert Boston Tea Party joke here).
I love green tea and I’ve loved it for a long time now. I’ve made green tea whoopie pie frosting and green tea cheesecakes – so since it’s the newest trendy food, I am so excited! Trendy means more green tea products, David’s tea even recently made a to-go container to make it green tea on the run which I love. This green tea ice cream though, really popped out at me and I had to have it.
Batch ice cream is a pretty cool company that seems to want to take on a “craft beer” approach to ice cream. Well, considering craft beer packaging is amazing and seems to be the only beer I can currently get behind, I can absolutely get on board with a craft ice cream movement.
Life is Strange was on steam sale a few weeks ago, and considering I’d already watched the first 10 minutes of it played by PewDiePie and Felicia Day, I figured it was time for me to play it myself, and finally see what happens after those 10 minutes. So a sale and a super intriguing game? Sign me up.
If you haven’t played yet, spoilers ahead.
P.S. I’m not sure why I love adding “and other short stories” to any sort of anecdotal titles I think of. I’m starting a little collection in the notebook that goes everywhere with me. I’ll write a book with one of them soon.
A few weeks ago I began panicking about my everyday life. I wasn’t sure, but I began testing whether or not I was allergic to gluten. While I’m still not 100% positive, I don’t think I am (phew, sorry glutenites). Either way – this gave me the opportunity to look through old recipes and readjust them to my potential future.
It was easier than I thought – and full of chocolate still. I could cope like this.
Also, I really just enjoy bringing foods to people who are food-impaired. With this recipe, you can too!
With my current job, I get a commute. The commute can either be an hour and a half
drive sit in traffic or an hour of a little driving, and mostly sitting on a train or shuttle bus to my place of employment.
I choose the latter, where I get to read fabulous books and listen to amazing podcasts – I had the pleasure of reading this paperback comic compilation one day of my commute last week (since it was a pretty quick read I finished it that day), and I wanted to tell you why I loved it so much.

I just got my mindfulness box in the mail (unboxing video coming soon), and this one came with a handful of meditation suggestions. Being that I’m a sweet freak, the one that caught my eye was “Chocolate Meditation.”
Um, sign me up!
The better news was I could do it right. then. because my box came with a piece of chocolate – smart move!
What I got out of this meditation was not at all what I was expecting.
