It’s been awhile. (sigh)
I’ve been baking a LOT!!! I’ve been busy with some orders and I’m now a pastry chef at this catering company in Buffalo–which is awwwweeeessssooommmmeeee to feel legit.
I just get caught up in the day to day of my life. Every day I lay in bed when I wake up and say to myself:
“ok. you are going to do x, y, and z today. period.” (x is always go to the gym; y is usually to clean something; and z is BLOG POSTS.
So you see I start out with every intention of checking these things off of my list but then I get going with my day and all of a sudden it’s like 9 or 10 o’clock –I haven’t showered–and Adam’s like “wanna watch a movie?” (right there that’s at least 2 things of XYZ I haven’t done!)
And then I have failed.
So! New Year’s Resolution…obviously…. MORE POSTS! (bear with me)
This is what you’ve missed out on in my life:
I went apple picking and I was going to write this super awesome fun creative blog post about fall and how much I love fall and apples and such. Oh wait that never happened….
how gorgeous is this picture?
we made apple butter………..
and then I made this pie apple crumble bar thing that was divine!
can you figure out the steps??? (it’s pretty simple)
this is the inside of a pie that i made but did not bake–but froze!! I wrapped it twice with plastic wrap and then foil and it froze beautifully. I made this in october, and we baked and ate the pie for thanksgiving. bam.
Ok I also made a cake for a boutique grand opening event:
Oh hey remember when I said I was a pastry chef for a catering company? WELLLL we catered a local magazine’s Christmas party and I made the desserts!
EGG NOG CREME BRULEE
MINI CHOCOLATE PEPPERMINT CUPCAKES
PISTACHIO CRUSTED CANNOLI
oh wait here’s more tiramisuuuuuu
this is my display. the event was at this showroom for kitchen remodeling. (it blew my mind)
it was awesome. it was my first major major thing that was a like a big deal!! haha that sounds very juvenile. would you believe that i have a Bachelor’s degree in english? oh higher education. oh and i’m apparently not using punctuation or capitalization for this post so just go with it. : )
I think that pretty much sums up the last few months of my life.
o wait thanksgiving!!! I made a super cute pumpkin pie with a leaf crust!
and acorn donut holes!
chyeeeeaaaaaaa i learned about instagram. well sort of. i’m still working the kinks out .
OK NOW that’s really the end.
I feel so proud of myself! It only took me ehhhh 47 minutes. but that was a buttload of pictures.
UP NEXT: CHRISTMAS COOOOOOOOOOOOKIES!!!!! Here’s a preview:
ps i feel like most of my pictures are like an I SPY book. who can find the diamond ring??????
