wisdom teeth blues and i'm too busy.

So last Friday, I got my wisdom teeth out. It was terrible! All I could eat was pudding and pancakes, so obviously no cooking. Aside from that... I have three jobs. Swich, Porchetta NYC, and helping Betsy boo make cupcakers. It has been so chaotic and I barely sleep any more! It's great though, and tons of fun! This week I have plans for cupcakes and oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Hopefully, I'll remember my camera considering I always forget! Any whos~


Twas one of my last meals, and so delish. Cooked arugula and onions mixed with parmesan cous cous, and a tuna sammich. So I hope I start to have time to cook and take photos of yummy things. Oh and Mario Batali was at my job getting pork sandwiches the other day. LOL.

xo, bye.


oh omelettttes!

Who likes leftovers? I don't know. The word itself is just a little bit gross. It makes me think of Salisbury steak slathered in sauce that has been sitting in the back of the fridge for like five years. However! Pair almost useless leftovers with eggs and you've got yourself a golden meal. Swear. So speaking of so... I took them leftover veggies (and some what dried out Swiss) from the dinner on the previous post, and I made a pretty bitchin' omelet for the very first time ever. I cook-ah-did up some eggs, bacon, and bread slices.


I kind of want that right now. Yeah.


long time no eat

Holy Babaganoush! You know what's funny... I never knew that babaganoush (or spell check is trying to change it to "membranous") was a real, existing thing. I was buying hummus last night and saw it as a flavor. I was seriously hysterical, and then dumbfounded on how delicious it seemed.

Alright, so besides that grocery store incident, it's beautiful out and I want picnics. I haven't really been cooking much, but last night I made a bitchin' dinner. I finally found my camera charger, so it's still functioning. However, after using a Nikon D40 for every thing else really... IT'S SO BAD.

good dinner, bad photo

At least it doesn't look TRAGIC that small, haha.

I wish I had a better photograph, and I wish I hadn't forgotten to take the photo before I ate my portion. It looked a thousand times better on a white plate than a crappy black container. We made crunky bread to dip in the hummus, but ate all of that. So... it's just parmesan cous cous with a veggie mix. I steamed broccoli, and sauteed onions, mushrooms, and carrots. I added in the broccoli, and mixed it all together with roasted garlic, thyme, salt, sugar, cracked black pepper, and whatever else. At the last five minutes, I threw in balsalmic and apples. Twas delicious with that Sabra Greek Olive Hummus. Mmmhm.

So I sat in a class at French Culinary Institute, and I'm crossing my fingers I can start in June. The school was beyond amazing, and I'm so excited. Oh! and I've been sitting around, stirring up really great food combos, ideas, and recipes. That is so exciting. I can't wait to get a job, and be able to make them. Once that happens... I can actually post more. Woo!


are you kidding me?

Yeah, I did it. I forgot to bring a camera and/or even get a photograph taken of the nearly 100 cupcakes I made. I made a nice little wad of cash, and lots of people gave me compliments on my tasty monsters. Basically though, I made the normal vanilla cupcakes I always make and held my breath and made Martha Stewart chocolate cupcakes. Her recipes kind of suck, to be honest! But any ways... in the vanilla cupcakes, I pushed in a little slice of strawberry prior to baking them off and topped them with chocolate cream cheese icing. The chocolate ones were topped off with blood orange pulp and juice mixed with cream cheese icing. I heard they were delicious, but I myself did not try them. It was fun though, except the constant question... "What da fuck are dees for?" I do hope my little cards with my blog and stuff got around! I want this to get better. I need motivation.

Hey! Thanks if you were there though!



Be prepared, I'm making a hundred or so cupcakes for Saturday.
If you live in Ohio, come to this:

soulhounds show

I will have a merch table for the Soulhounds; selling cupcakes cheap, cheap, cheap!


oh yeah

I totally forgot how great early breakfast can be. Apples and peanut butter toast was like the coziest meal ever. I mean... if that is possible? Maybe I mean some thing more like comfortable. I don't know! It just made me want to snuggle and wear flannel.


Mostly, let's all thank the dear lord jesus for photobooth. Not having a working camera nor a kitchen I like to be in is really putting me on the down side. My fingers and taste buds just feel like working, but they can't! How frustrating!


pizza mac n' cheese

Ah, a favorite of every one who has ever rested their lips upon a fork that was blessed by this meal. What a combination... pizza and mac n' cheese. No little kid or adult can deny this. It's too easy and too good to be true.

pizza mac n' cheese

I'm entirely too satisfied with that photograph I took. It's so delicious; mmm.

Ingredients needed:
jar of spaghetti sauce
jar of cheese sauce
elbows macaroni

(I will be honest, this time I used a jar of cheese sauce... and it was so good).

It's seriously simple! Make very al dente elbows, mix cheese sauce, and assemble in a shallow baking dish. Put macaroni in the dish. Along the sides of the pan, place pepperoni as a mock for a crust. Put some spaghetti sauce on top of pasta, maybe some more pepperoni. And then on top of the sauce... obviously all the cheese you want. Bake 350 degrees; 20 minutes covered, ten uncovered.

So I am back in New York, and I forgot to steal Robert's camera. Thus... I have no camera, a jinx in my oven, and a shitty time. Pity me! I'll try and update as much as I can, but I swear in two weeks I'll be back in action in a cozy home and with my love.
