Cheese and Mac!

Why not macaroni and cheese? Because the cheese is so much more prominent in this recipe than the mac. Gruyere and blue, you've never been so lovely. Oh, and the caramelized onions don't hurt either.
Want to know how I did it? Ask!

A 2 for 1 deal!

Two fall favorites, caramel apples and apple pie, turned into one freaky conjoined couple. Freakishly delicious that is.

Frenchy French

This was quite the experiment! These were fun to bake but above all, they tasted delicious. Espresso french macaroons, some filled with strawberry jam, others with salted caramel. The key to these are letting them rest, and not under baking. They're better the day after they're baked!

New and Improved: To Cook a Mockingbird!

     Oh the experiences I've had! It's time to share and time to try out the new direction this blog will be taking.  In the past few months I have worked as a pastry chef in an upscale steakhouse (with no formal training), catered to cupcake needs, and experimented to no end. It's been a blast, to say the least, but now I want to share everything with you all!
Okay so here's how it's going to work. I'm mixing my old food blog with my new love, food photography. I'll post pictures of my newest and classic creations with a quick description, which will allow me to update this blog more often. When you see something that sparks your fancy, holler "Recipe please!" and I will deliver!
Okay Blogspot...let's see how this goes.
Let the eyes feast.

Brandy butter cookies

Brandy spice cookies, filled with homemade dulce de leche.

Quick fresh snack.

Whole wheat toast, whipped cream cheese and mascarpone, sliced strawberries, and a drizzle of local honey. 

How do I begin? With breakfast, of course.
