New Years Eve Dinner Nosh & Tell Style

Chocolate [not] Cinnamon Bundt Cake

So I set out to make Bon Appetit’s Chocolate Cinnamon Bundt Cake that I’ve seen floating around. Buuuttttt I forgot to put in the cinnamon so I got Chocolate Bundt Cake instead. That sounds really boring but the cake was AMAZING, even sans the cinnamon (oops). I’ve decided that Bundt cakes and me don’t really

Cookie Cake

I have been a long time fan of the Cookie Cake. There’s just something about the concentrated cookie flavor in the shape of a cake slice that is just so appealing.

Lookie at my Cookies: Cake Balls

What do you do when you break a cake into a million pieces because the cake got stuck in the pan because you were too lazy to parchment paper the bottom? Make Cake Balls! If you’re like me first you will freak out for about a minute and a half, but then eat a piece

During these weeks I am usually poorer due to buying presents and dinners out, busy juggling plans, confused because I am trying to keep everyone’s birthday’s straight, and full off cake. I am also infinitely happy because I absolutely love
