I have thought long and hard about what I would write after a 6+ month hiatus from blogging. I never really found my voice on this blog, it was a sort of food blog, sort of weight loss blog, sort of life blog.
However, to say the last 8 months of my life have been filled with joy and excitement would probably be the biggest lie. And while I could have blogged about the personal trials and tribulations I’ve gone through, but that’s not me and that is too personal.
Much of the reason I haven’t blogged is that I have not been cooking or baking frequently. For now, this one joy in my life also brings a lot of pain into my world as well. To go into more detail would be more than I’m willing to share on the world of the internet. For now I will leave you with the few lovely things I have made over the past few months.
Homemade Funfetti Cupcakes with Vanilla Bean Buttercream Frosting
Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake with Whipped Peanut Butter Cream Cheese Frosting
Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes with Cinnamon Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting
Homemade Yellow Cake with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting (aka my birthday cake)
salted caramel brownies (these have been a #1 hit every time I make them. however I cut back on the instant coffee [only 1 tsp.] because otherwise I find it very overpowering in the recipe. I bought the fleur de sel caramel sauce from trader joe’s, use the whole jar, and only sprinkle 1 tsp. of the flaked sea salt. seriously make these, they are amazing.)
