I’m back y’all!! I feel like I haven’t posted something in forever (or two weeks)! I should also tell you that I now speak with a southern accent, drink bourbon, and bet on horses. Can I tell you how amazing Kentucky is? Such pretty rolling knobs (hills), horses and cows, and not to mention what a fun city Louisville (pronounced Loo-a-vill) is! Churchill Downs… Amen!
Alternate title… The Graveyard Cake… Rest in Peace to your 20′s.
The further into your 30’s (or beyond) you are the more you can appreciate this cake. See when you’re in your 20’s you think the world will end when they do. Not until you hit 30 do you gain a true appreciation of your life as you are living it.
Before you start screaming about whole wheat having no place in a cookie, I think you should give these a chance. I know you probably grew up with wonder bread sandwiches and fruit loops for breakfast but it doesn’t mean you can’t learn to love whole grains.
Altruistic. It’s one of the characteristics I strive to posses and desire for others to see in me. No one is ever going to say that you are too kind, too caring, or too giving in life. Putting others first and spreading joy and love is what brings me true happiness.
When you are getting together with your ten girlfriends for brunch you do not mess around. I repeat, you do not mess around! Boring blueberry muffins or lackluster banana bread will simply not do. Brunch calls for a top-notch, indulgent, over the top treat. Apple Cinnamon Buns smothered in Cream Cheese Icing… ohh you better believe they are that treat.
You ever get pigeon holed to do a job after you did it successfully just once? I am so guilty of doing this to anyone who has helped me in the kitchen. If you did a good job with something once, you know I’m coming back to you with the same task again. It’s a compliment, it means I trust you. When my friend who squeezed 10 grapefruits for this (http://www.champagnefrosting.com/?p=1907) amazing cocktail asked what she could help with in the kitchen, she should have know that pile of limes on the counter was just waiting for her.
