Woah. Time Flies.

My goodness how time has flown by without a post! But don’t you worry…I have been baking, and I have been taking pictures, so I do have quite a bit to share with you! In the meantime, here’s a little sneak peek to…shall we say…get your mouth-watering?! Get ready, ’cause your mouth is going to water (well, I am perhaps a bit biased, having tasted all of these creations and all!).

YES! I made macarons (first time!)!

 

German Chocolate Cake...need I say more?!

 

Now force that jaw up and keep the mouth-watering to a minimum until I can get back here with the recipes and more details!

New Obsession: Baked

Borders (bookstore) is closing. What great obsession could come from that? Well, after scoring two cookbooks I’d been eyeing for some time at 25% off, I’ll tell you: an obsession with Baked, a bakery originating in Brooklyn, New York (with locations in South Carolina now too). The books are graphic, eye-catching, and jam-packed with loads of MUST-try recipes. This is not good for my waistline at all…but seriously, you guys, these books are worth buying.

*Having bought the books yesterday, I made the Sweet and Salty Brownies (yuuuum!) and have already planned to make two more recipes within the next week! If I can snap some pictures of the brownies, I’ll be sure to upload ’em!
