A lot of the people nearest and dearest to me have April birthdays. When April birthdays fall on Passover, it’s particularly difficult to get creative. Flourless chocolate cake and meringues seem to be fairly consistent desserts during Passover (though, real talk, those Passover boxed cake mixes are legit). So when I saw that Molly Yeh would be posting a recipe for a chocolate chip cookie cake that is Kosher for Passover, I was over the moon excited to give it a go! Continue Reading
Do you guys watch Scandal? I discovered it mid-Season 3 and immediately binge-watched the first two seasons on Netflix (I think I got through them all in, like, 2 weeks) and impatiently waited for the third season to be available for binging. Once I caught up, I watched weekly…religiously. I could not get enough.
When we lived in Louisville, the St. Patrick’s Day parade day was one of my favorite days of the year. It seems like everyone in the city comes out for that parade. And to make it even more fun, it usually coincides with March Madness basketball, which is such a big deal in Louisville. Here in Boston, the parade is much larger, usually much colder, and I hear it’s a bit rowdier. I have yet to attend a Boston St. Patrick’s Day parade, but it seems like quite the event!
Last weekend I ran a 5 mile race. I never considered myself to be a runner, and I am by no means a fast runner. But I ran this race at a much faster pace than my standard pace, and I was very proud of myself.
After the race I went to breakfast with my dear, sweet friends, who are constantly motivating and inspiring me, and we stopped at a Starbucks for coffees. My friend convinced me that I had to try the smoked butterscotch latte. I had been intrigued by this menu item, but had never been able to bring myself to try it. I agreed that this was the morning to try it. YOU GUYS. If you haven’t had this drink go to Starbucks right now and get it. It is so good.
I am not a New England Patriots fan, but I live in Boston where making that statement is frowned upon. (My husband is already not happy with this post!!!) This will be my third Super Bowl since moving to Boston, and the second of those in which the Patriots are playing. So although I am not a fan, it is only right that my Super Bowl dessert is inspired by the Patriots.
