Keep it simple

There are few things more humble than a can of beans, but the best thing about them is their ability to be transformed, even into something rich. I personally enjoy them quite a bit even at their simplest so when I came across this recipe in Bon Appetit’s website I knew I had to try it. It was beyond tasty and I encourage you to try it too 🙂

Here’s how mine turned out:

Is it Valentine’s Day yet?

I’m not sure if it’s the fact that I am a hopeless romantic, the abundance of chocolate and other sweets suddenly everywhere, or the variety of beautiful shades of pinks and reds splashed across greeting cards and decorations; but I look forward to Valentine’s day every year. So much so, that when strolling through the isles of my supermarket earlier in the week, I couldn’t help but pick up a Box of Pillsbury Valentine’s Day Fun-fetti cake mix and tub of icing to match. Now I will admit making cake or cupcakes from a box totally feels like cheating, but the way these turned out made me feel like good things can definitely come in small cardboard packages. I really enjoyed making and decorating these and they definitely have me looking forward to more V-day decadence. What are your plans to celebrate romance?
