Strawberry Balsamic Ice Cream

Man has it been awhile since my last post or what?! Things have changed pretty significantly since then. Wendy and I had a baby! A beautiful little girl named Charlotte. She’s super amazing and we’re loving every second of parenthood, but things have been a bit hectic. People like to give a lot of “advice” and make tons of comments when they know you’re expecting, but it seems like everyone always says the same stuff. “Get used to crying”, “say goodbye to having a life for the next 18 years” and so on and so forth. Yeah, a lot of useful stuff (sense the sarcasm?). People  tend to leave out the good stuff. For instance, getting ready in the morning used to be a 15-20 minute ordeal. We’re not dum dums, we knew it would take longer, but we didn’t know the universe would work against us, every. Single. Time. Ready to walk out the door? BOOM! total blow out. Baby in a great mood BANG! gas hits and baby screams (rightfully so). It’s all actually really funny, you can’t help but laugh at it but it is indeed tough to adjust.  I’m sure the blog will begin to overflow with baby stories (mostly poop) and tales of being a new dad (more poop). Did I just say poop in a food post? Tis the life of parenthood….

Coffee Creme Brulee

IMG_3924edit I have a shit ton of cookbooks, like really. I’ll admit that some of the books that I thought I HAD to have, now sit on my book shelf having only been browsed through once or twice. It’s not that they’re bad books, I just have so many books with so little time. Despite this, I keep on buying up cookbooks like they will save my life during the apocalypse (water? pfft no, but I have 500 cookbooks). My latest book purchase was for David Lebovitz’s new book My Paris Kitchen….

Working Out The Kinks

Just a heads up to everyone, I recently switched my blog over to a self hosted WordPress site. This was definitely a great move for my site! The downside is that I am STILL trying to fix formatting problems on each and every post I’ve ever written. If you visit a post and it has some funky spacing or other issues, know that I am trying to get through all of my posts to fix the problems. Thanks for your patience my peeps!!

Vanilla Bean Espresso Almond Butter

 It’s finally been raining in the Bay Area! Yay!! Since I’m off today, Wendy and I have been just lounging around all day which is AWESOME with a capital…well, all capitals actually. The only downside to my day has been reaching for my almond butter and realizing I have none left. Nothing is worse than craving something only to find it empty, or in my case, finding 1 teaspoon of lonely almond butter at the bottom of the jar. First world problems right! I decided against driving around in the down pour just for a jar of almond butter, I thought making my own was a much better idea. It’s incredibly easier than you think. It also tastes about 100 times better than the $10.99 jars we all buy. …
