I have a few fun things that are keeping me busy, I will be able to share the fine details soon!
For now, a cheesecake.
I made this for Justin’s 26th birthday a couple weekends ago! He requested cheesecake instead of traditional b-day cake this year, which is fine by me because I [...]
This year I received a new kind of box of chocolates for Valentine’s. Instead of chocolate truffles and bon-bons, I asked for (three months in advance) a box of cake balls. They look like large truffles on the outside, but inside, they are filled with cake crumbs mixed with frosting.
Over the weekend, Justin and I enjoyed a Valentine’s getaway and a stay at The Lenox Hotel.
I won a one night stay at The Lenox back in December at a raffle. I figured since the grand prize was won at a blogging event – I ought to blog about it [...]
I wonder what it is like to sleep through the night. On an average night, I get up at least 2-3 times. Usually, I stir when Justin comes to bed or to use the bathroom. But, in our apartment, there are other distractions that stray from the norm.
Exhibit A: Sleep-talking
I guess [...]
How many of you are good day-drinkers? I enjoy the concept of spending a day in the sun, sipping down a few cold ones, and relaxing into the day. That’s what we did yesterday afternoon with some of Justin’s relatives.
We met at Mike’s Water St. Grill [...]
We celebrated the third anniversary of our first date today. For all intensive purposes, we call this day our anniversary, because we’ve been together ever since. I’ve matured so much, in fact, that instead of spending almost $100 on a fancy dinner out for this occasion, I decided to do it all for free at home.
I made a simple but delicious menu that wouldn’t require much heat in the kitchen (it’s still way too hot.)
My typical morning commute into Boston proper takes about 40 minutes by train. This weekend, I learned that it takes 3 hours and 40 minutes by foot. Well, that’s how long it took for Justin and I to walk all the way into the city (~6 miles and 15,000 steps). I left the pedometer going [...]
Forgive me for what you are about to see. It’s blue, it’s enormous, and it’s filled with cookies. This is the Cookie Monster Cake that I made for Justin’s birthday!
I saw a recipe several months ago for oreo cupcakes in this cookbook and knew I would [...]
Today, my wonderful boyfriend turns 25! Happy Birthday, J!
This is our 3rd round of birthday celebrations together. We’ve come a long way from being broke college students who could barely afford presents for each other at first.
Now, we have jobs. We have positive balances in our savings [...]
