Recovering and Recipes and Such

Finally recovered from a 24hr stint between the bathroom and the couch and not being able to keep anything in my stomach. What a grueling 24hrs that was. Luckily my mother is the sweetest, kindest person ever. After she came home from her doctor's appointment, she took care of me. My dad also attempted to take care of the both of us and he wasn't feeling good either. Let's just say I'm really lucky to have such caring parents who will hold my hair back while I...

Anyway, have had plenty of time to do some work on the computer, watch cooking shows, and search pinterest. I need to get back in the kitchen and do what I love most - create food for the people I love.
Been stumbling on a lot of good blogs/foodblogs out there. Here are some of my favorites:

I've been asked to make chocolate bark for my dad's work pre-Thanksgiving Holiday party...
So it'll be chocolate, dried cherries, pistachios, walnuts, dried apricots, and fleur de sel. Made a test batch today and can't stop thinking about it....SALTY AND SWEET YUM!

What is a Cupcake?

According to the Urban Dictionary, entry #3 says:
A "cupcake" is a person who... ...from outward appearance you would assume they are tough, but on the inside they are soft. ...can be very sweet. the perfect size, just the right amount of everything. also cute yet delicious. ...people are always in the mood to hang out with them, just like people are always in the mood to have cupcakes. ...people never get sick of.
Um, yeah. That fits.
Do not, I repeat, do not look up "muffin" in the Urban Dictionary.

Must-Haves for Cupcake's Suitcase

Suitcase? Forget a suitcase! As long as I have this, I'll be set for the weekend!

Must-Haves for Muffin's Suitcase

Matrix Blow Down tames this coarse, wavy mane of mine!
A sock-bun helps me go without having to blow dry my hair again.
Almay's liquid eyeliner in Raisin Quartz is made for green eyes and is a great fit with my skintone and hair color.
Aveda's Cassia lip gloss makes me feel pretty.
Nine West's Drusilla pump in Black--no further comment needed.
AND my current favorite albums for the road trip!

Getting Ready!

Cupcake and Muffin are getting ready for their first overnight-destination adventure! Where are they going?
