Whiskey Caramel Affogato

Whiskey Caramel Affogato
I’ll just let that sink in for a minute. WHISKEY. CARAMEL. AFFOGATO. It’s a drink  that’s like a dessert all in one awesome glass. You’ll need a straw and a spoon to have your bases covered, best to be prepared. I mean if you didn’t have a straw you could just tip the glass and drink it so no worries if you’re all out of straws when it comes time. I mean we gotta do what we gotta do. Affogato in Italian means drowned. You will be drowning alright, in deliciousness that is.

How to Make Homemade Pasta

Homemade Pasta
I’m always amazed that three simple ingredients combine to make the deliciousness that is homemade pasta. That’s it y’all. Three simple ingredients. Flour, eggs and salt. That’s literally all you need. When I do make homemade pasta, it’s usually on the weekends when I have a little more time on my hands, when the fast paced week is behind me and I can actually enjoy the process. It’s therapeutic to me (cheapest therapy around, yep).

Chocolate Whiskey Pots de Creme

Chocolate Whiskey Pots de Creme

For those of you who’ve been hanging around our little corner of the interwebs and especially for those of you who know me IRL (in real life y’all) KNOW without a shadow of a doubt I have zero to little willpower when it comes to dessert. It’s like kryptonite for me. I’m weak. It’s a big reason I work out (and by big I mean it’s the only reason), so I can EAT all the deliciousness that is dessert, and okay carbs too, but we’re talking dessert today.

Orange Tiramisu

Orange Tiramisu

Tiramisu is my dessert kryptonite. I seriously can NOT say no to this dessert. Ever. I curse my sweet tooth. But it is, what it is, so I don’t fight it. I just give in and then exercise. Pretty much the story of my life. Which is okay, unless I eat the entire pan. Which is why I typically like to make this pick me up dessert in individual portions. It helps keep my lack of willpower in check, aka not eating the entire pan when no one is around. But sometimes there might not be time to individually layer jars (because let’s be honest that does add to prep time) in walks your square pan.

Creamy Risotto with Crispy Mushrooms

Creamy Risoto with Crispy Mushrooms
I am an all in kind of girl. Once I make up my mind to do something (now this could take me a while mind you) I’m GOING to do it. This year I decided it was time to move from the back of a motorcycle to piloting my own. I decided on a Saturday, bought my bike that day, got my permit on Monday and learned to drive her (I’m fully licensed and endorsed now, because safety first y’all). That was 7 months ago and I haven’t looked back since. I’m on her every chance I get. I’m only wondering why in the world it took me so long to go for it. Why wait, do that thing that you’ve been contemplating. Not quite ready to take a big plunge? Well how about a small plunge? Eat that bowl of carb loaded deliciousness you’ve been wanting,  grab your big girl (boy) spoon and dive in! You can always work it off later.
