Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake| Domestic B(i)atch

8.23.17

Did you hear Bonnie Tyler? Was your heart totally eclipsed? Did you look straight at the sun and your eyes burned out? Bummer. Well in the spirit of celebration for something quite exceptional, I’d also like to raise a glass (or a slice of cake) to the (belated) two-year anniversary of my blog. I cannot believe I started this side project two years ago. I’m not a famous blogger, I do not have 1 million followers, and I am very much ok with that. This summer has been one of the most educational and challenging I’ve ever experienced. Stick with me as a I give you the low down of what’s been happening, and what the result of that is. Or I guess you can skip to the end of the post to see the exciting personal news that’s going on.  I AM NOT PREGNANT.

Blackberry and Lime Cupcakes | Domestic B(i)atch

8.18.17

How does every week feel like it flies by and also like an eternity to complete.  Same thing with this summer.  June seems like it was ages ago, and yet somehow it’s already mid August? Time, you are a tricky bitch.  At least my friends and I went to the beach this past weekend for the first time together in TWO YEARS once we realized that summer was coming to a close. In New York, getting to any beach is an adventure in itself, so by the time you pick a spot to lie in the sand, you are more than ready to relax.  I think we all needed a beach day. I think we all deserved a beach day.

Striped Meringue Kisses | Domestic B(i)atch

8.8.17

I am not great when it comes to leftovers. If we haven’t consumed all of dinner, we both really have the best intentions of eating it for lunch that week, or on another night.  Usually though, it just hangs out in one of my tupperware containers until we do a deep clean of the fridge and have to smell what it is to remember what it was. We’re working on getting better at it. However, this doesn’t apply to my baking.  I often have extra of at least one component. It sits there staring at me.  But unlike home cooked dinner, I am always determined to make something out of leftover frosting, or curd, or in this case, extra meringues from the cake I made.  After choosing the prettiest ones for the top of the cake I had the rest just hard chilling with no purpose. The meringue can be eaten on its own, sure, but HOW BORING. Gotta amp it up.  Dip it on some chocolate and then into some crunchiness for an exciting cookie I can get on board with.
