A list of the recipes I’ve been dying to try and a list of the ones I have tried (both successful and unsuccessful).

  • Couscous Inventions - Well….I’ve come to learn that whole-wheat couscous definitely needs to be jazzed up a bit whilst cooking otherwise an influx of uninteresting flavors will cover your palette (and whatever else you decide to serve with it). Lucky for us, couscous is hard to mess up (truly!). If you follow the direction…you will be alright….Don’t under […]
  • Crema Catalana - If you have ever visited Spain, Northern Spain to be exact, you will know that typically there is an intricate mix between French and Spanish cultures, including the food. The exchanges of food are NOT to be intermixed with each other, which is why I have come to develop a love for Barcelona’s Crema Catalana, […]
  • A Homemade Funfetti Cake…..? Sign me up! - This is on my TO MAKE list….I have been an avid fan of funfetti cake from the box since I was little. With a now more sophisticated love for cooking family favorites from scratch, this recipe seems like an ultimate matchup! http://www.thekitchn.com/cake-recipe-funfetti-cake-from-147011
  • Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe that is to die for! - Cream Cheese Recipe that is to die for! Thank you Martha for being so fabulous (and slightly neurotic)! She was right in that it makes a lot of frosting – I used it on a box cake mix of Betty Crocker Carrot Cake mix (not bad for $1.50) and made an 8×8 pan and 12 […]
  • Brownies that are too Delicious for words! - I have yet to try and cut this recipe in half because it bakes a full 9×13 pan of ooey-gooey delicious brownies. I worked it out to create an 8×8 square pan & a 9in. glass dish (about half of the batter in each cooking around the same time). It came out miraculously still (although […]
  • Red Velvet Cake Balls – First Try… - Now let me tell you where I think we went wrong….too much frosting! We started to build the cake balls from a Betty Crocker box mix (which is much easier than trying to create my own) (make according to box directions). We prepped the cake the day before to ensure it was entirely cool because […]

Tips and Tricks:

  • Spanish Bebida: Clara - Spanish bebida: Clara if anyone knows anything about Spain during the summer they know it is deathly H-O-T and humid combined. For something refreshing seek out a Clara, part lemon part beer. I know the mix may seem quite grosse but let me tell you, ice cold and served up correctly, you will have the […]
