So recently it was one of my closest friend's, whom we lovingly call Lil Dicky, birthdays. Can't say she's entirely fond of that nickname, but that's 1/2 the point of nicknames anyways. In that spirit, here's some Lil' Dicky for you to listen to while reading this post.
This may be one of my favorite cakes I've made so far. I've realized that I am a BIG BIG fan of chocolate whiskey cakes. The coffee and whiskey that you add in tend to cut the sweetness of the coffee perfectly and only leaves a slight whiskey flavoring. It works perfectly! After scouring the internet and Pinterest for recipes, and making myself extremely hungry in the process, I landed on this glorious monstrosity.
I based my recipe of that cake but made a bunch of modifications to make it more "adult-friendly." Enjoy because we sure did!
K this second post for the week took a bit longer than expected but I finally perfected the pictures so we're good now. YAY Post #2 for the week! And that too, to celebrate one of the nerdiest holidays out there! STAR WARS DAY!
All the wonderful puns.
Also because this recipe is banana filled, I HAD the little song by the Minions from Despicable Me stuck in my head. So I figured I should share that adorableness and mental torture with you guys.
Anyways... after being home sick for an entire week in what I consider my personal version of solitary confinement, I hit a new level of insanity. I was deprived of social interaction to such a point that I legit LOL'd at a Buzzfeed article of ridiculous snapchats for a good 20 minutes. And by LOL'd I mean curled over laughing so hard I could barely breathe.Read more
I konw this post can't come close to as sweet as the one Anagha wrote this week. But I pinky promise, in addition to making up for last weeks missing post, I will also make up for Valentine's day. I know, I know... lots of promises but you don't mess with pinky promises!
You knew this song was coming... don't lie. Just relish in the throwback and ketchup on some food blog reading ;)
Since this past weekend was the SUPERBOWL I had this whole great plan on how I was going to post about what I made to eat then. But of course my inner Dory came out and I forgot to upload all the tantalizing pictures I took. A specific friend of mine, cough cough Breane, had requested the recipe so I TOTALLY apologize for my brain fart and promise I'll post it next week! But until then, you'llRead more
I know. I know. The title and the song I'm telling you to listen while reading this post don't match, but I felt I needed to up my Drake game a bit. Plus, now every time I think of Drake, I picture him doing his little "dance" over and over again. It brings me a LOT of joy. I also love the SNL parody of it but that's not really relevant.
First off, HAPPY NATIONAL CHOCOLATE CAKE DAY! I was not aware that this was an ACTUAL holiday but I'm not gonna complain. I firmly believe that everyday should be National Chocolate Cake Day! But hey, I'll take one day a year.
Second, it's your lucky week! You get TWO whole posts from me! I've been sick since Sunday, so I've been vegetating on my couch, watching a few too many chick flicks, all whilst drinking the world's supply ofRead more
To be completely honest... this song isn't quite perfect for this post but it was the first one that came to mind for this post. Enjoy :P
And no, in case you were wondering... I didn't spike these coffee cupcakes with cocaine.
So, I'm not sure how many of you know this but coffee cake doesn't ACTUALLY have any coffee in it... I KNOW! I was just as disappointed as you are right now. Despite these cakes being a COMPLETE and utter lie, I love them down to the very last crumb.
Deceit aside, this recipe was actually quite easy to make and also involved me having to make extra crumble topping to replace the amount I ate. I'd recommend doing the same for yourself :P hehe
NOTE: My crumble topping came out kind of clumpy but I think that was mainly because I got lazy and didn't add theRead more
