Gelato. My yoga pants’ favorite companion!
Ahhhh Springtime. The air is warmer & the days are getting longer!!
Spring & fall are my absolute favorite seasons. It’s embarrassing how many times on our afternoon walk, I look up into the bright sky, take a deep breath in & say, “Godddd I love Spring… I JUST LOVE IT”!! I’m a complete nerd for spring blooms. What can I say? It makes me happy. ALMOST as happy as gelato makes me. Almost!
At this point I’ve just accepted that there will be no summer bod… & I’m ok with that. When you can accept something, it makes indulging in things like donuts so much more pleasurable! Hahaha! Joking(ish).
These little baked chocolate donuts = pure heaven. They aren’t overly sweet, which is something I really admire about them (yes, speaking like they’re my children). Seriously though, they are the perfect balance of dark chocolate with a subtle sweetness to them.
Macarons! One little word. A whole lot of practice batches!
Guys, I NEED to perfect the French macaron. I am on a mission. A macaron mission if you will!! For generations, macarons have stumped even the most advanced bakers. If there is one confectionary treat that takes practice—it’s these bad boys.
When I tried my hand at them for the very first time yearsss back, my batch came out like PERFECTION!! We are talking p-e-r-f-e-c-t.

I made this recipe yesterday & ¼ of the pie remains. Sadly, I’m not exaggerating *looks down*. There WAS ½ left this morning, but I decided to have a slice with my coffee (because why not?)… leaving me with a sad ¼.
I feel like there are two types of people during quarantine. 1: people motivated with their free time to work out like beasts! 2: people who are just baking & eating their feelings.
Can you guess which one I am? HIPS DON’T LIE.

What’s it been guys, over a year??! I thought I’d make my online return special by putting out a real banger for St. Patty’s Day ;)
So why do leprechauns hate running?
BECAUSE THEY RATHER JIG THAN JOG.

Holy Toledo, this cinnamon roll cake is ruining my summer bod with a QUICKNESS :O
I normally have somewhat good self-control when it comes to baked goods. “Everything in moderation,” they say! Well, there wasn’t anything moderate about the size of the slice I served myself. Let alone the second helping. Bring on the stretchy pants!
Who else buys caramel apples just to eat the outside candy goodness, leaving only worm sized bites through to the apple?! Well I do! I’m the type of person who likes more chocolate & candy, less apple. If you feel me, hallelujah!! This little sweet treat ensures you get a little bit of the good stuff with EVERY bite of apple *high five*! It’s more of a balanced meal in my opinion ;)

You know that one night a week where you’re sitting there fighting with yourself, “I’ve been eating really well! I deserve some fuckin’ carbs. I deserve some damn cheese! I’ll just slap a tomato on it & call it healthy”! Well, that’s how this Pesto Caprese Grilled Cheese was born. Well, that & the cold weather made me do it. Pair this with a hot cup of tomato soup?!?! DEAR LORD YAAASSSSSSS <3 <3
I don’t think this sammich needs much selling.
Hot melty cheese.
