Cupcakes2

10.30.15

I’m pretty sure ‘Spooky, Boozy, Bloody,’  was the back up title for TLC’s ‘Crazy, Sexy, Cool’ in the 90’s.  Guess it didn’t make the cut.

Well Happy Halloween to all you grown ups who will be inappropriately dressed up tomorrow. It’s a time for watching Hocus Pocus and wishing the Great Pumpkin King was real.  And while all you drunken dressed up idiots will be at parties clad as Donald Trump, Marty McFly, or that atrociously inaccurate slide from the Planned Parenthood trial (which would’ve been my costume, you can steal it), this idiot will be asleep.  Sleeping so hard, because I have voluntarily chosen to run 26.2 miles the following morning through the boroughs of New York City. And what better to carbo load with than cupcakes??

Biscuits2

New York cannot make up it’s mind. Like me at a pizza place, indecisive (because I want to eat everything).

I feel like the past few posts have had numerous steps that require a lot of patience, and time to do correctly. But buttermilk biscuits with a bit of a kick? Simple.  I feel like these biscuits fall in the same category as whipped cream, in the way that you’re used to having store bought, but once you make it yourself, you’ll never go back.

Final Pistachio Cake 2

10.20.15

It’s still Monday somewhere, right? Like on the other side of the world it is still Monday and I am not behind in creating this post for the week.  I’m sure that is completely incorrect, but the truth is I am behind. Life. It’s really there and sometimes it just doesn’t create enough hours in the day to accomplish all you want to get done. But let’s move on, because I really made something great this past week and it was beautiful and delicious.  A cake! A pistachio cake no less!
