CookiesFG-1

4.21.16

I am BACK from my incredible trip to Mexico!  This past week has been heaven, seriously paradise and I will be going through all the pictures (by phone and by fancy camera) to share some of the best moments, and prove that buying a whole new set of clothes for the trip was totally worth it. But since that’ll take the better part of the weekend, I’ll share these cookies I made right before I left, dreaming of the ocean and palm trees.  And these shortbread cookies basically got me there, tart and tangy and bright.  The buttery texture (and the fact they take no time at all) really make you feel like you’re on a vacation.

Meatlover Quiche-12

4.11.16

I couldn’t leave the country without giving you one more recipe, which turned out to be one of the best and heartiest breakfasts I’d had in a long time.  I’m not the biggest fan of veggies, and while I’ve been trying to adult a little more and bring healthier stuff into my diet, I’m a sucker for two things: meat and any form of pizza around.  So quiche’s haven’t been big on my radar because I normally associate it with including broccoli. Ick. But when I realized that I could put whatever I wanted into a quiche (similar to a hot pocket), I really wanted to make one. So I stuffed this one with meat and two kinds of cheese. And it was soft, and full of flavor, with a bit of a kick because of the chorizo I used. And if you’re an avid carnivore like me, I highly recommend trying it.

Friday is upon us and I think I’ll make it a requirement that you HAVE to make this Mug Cake over the weekend.  Some of the these cakes are good, some aren’t great, and so far there have been a select few that are outstanding.  This is one of them.  I was scraping the bottom of the cup at the end, and was pretty bummed it was all gone. Also, if you have a nut allergy, sorry friend, this is your worst nightmare, just move along, nothing to see here.
