Someone gave me a Peanuts Gang waffle maker for my birthday this year. So cute! It doesn’t quite taste like waffles. It’s more like pancakes on the inside with a crispy crust. I also made chocolate bowls using a balloon. You just dip the inflated balloon in melted chocolate and after it hardens you pop… Continue reading Cute Food Things
My husband and I decided to take a quick weekend getaway before the baby comes. My husband is not much of a traveler so I was surprised he was even willing to go somewhere. We just went to San Diego since it’s fairly close and has a lot of good food. I was afraid it… Continue reading Quick Weekend Getaway to San Diego
I was watching the Food Network the other day and saw this hack on the Pioneer Woman. It’s such a simple way to make ice cream cake, especially if there’s only 2 of you eating it.

Well I do now, but again only when they’re crispy. Plus I had to test this method before Thanksgiving. Instead of cooking them… Continue reading Roasted Brussel Sprouts
I love pie crust. In fact the only reason I eat pie is for the crust. Sometimes when I’m eating apple pie, I eat all the filling first and save the bottom crust to eat at the end. It’s so good. I wanted to post this in time for the holiday season. I’ll be making… Continue reading Perfect Pie Crust
As the years go by, the more my palate favors the taste of brussel sprouts. Now I’m not talking about plain old steamed brussel sprouts. I still think those are not that appetizing.
