Banana Peanut Butter Swirl Bread

Banana Peanut Butter Swirl Bread \ PasstheSushi.com

There are days when I see bright beautiful pictures all over Pinterest. They are on everything from wedding blogs to food photos. Clear, crisp, and clean. Perfect homes, stunning tablescapes, picturesque gardens, all being maintained by beautiful women all in perfect white outfits. I worry that I don’t send the right message through my work on here of GirlCarnivore.com. That my personal “brand” isn’t bright enough. Not clear or crisp enough to attract the right kind of audience, client… the right kind of life. Then I take a step back from those photoshop-ed models, those magazine homes,  and I realize […]

Pumpkin Bread Pudding with Cinnamon Spice Glaze

Pumpkin Bread Pudding // Passthesushi.com

Still trying to figure out that holiday menu? That’s ok, because I am too. I have 99 pages marked and magazine recipes flying about and I know that when it comes down to it, the same old sides will be staring my family down the day of. But, if you are looking for something that you could break into steps and make a few days before, this pumpkin bread pudding is perfect. I made the pumpkin loaves a few days before  I wanted to make the pumpkin bread, snacked on a few slices for myself, and when I was ready […]

Baked Mini Blueberry Streusel Donuts

Baked Mini Blueberry Donuts from PasstheSushi.com

Let’s have a little chat about etiquette. Internet etiquette that is. Last week it was brought to my attention that one of my photos, along with the entire recipe was posted to a facebook page that wasn’t mine. It’s the internet. It was built to share information quickly. It was a recipe. I post recipes on the internet because I want people to try them. But copying and pasting an entire post to your own page without and credit is just plain wrong. Sadly, these sort of pages are springing up everywhere and the people who follow them feel that they are […]

Caramel Frosted Zucchini Bread

Zucchini_bread_0135

Before we get on to the delicious zucchini bread below, it’s time for another quick round of Diggin’ It Tuesday. No lie, fall weather. It’s 66 degrees F outside right now. I’m in heaven. My Tameron 18-270mm lens, because it lets me get all up close and personal from far away. Not a professional level lens. There’s a lot more noise in the pictures than I would like, but it was really dark and for the price you can’t beat it. I know I have included a link to Amazon, but please, always buy your photography equipment from local stores. […]

Banana Bread with Nutella Swirls

Nutella_banana_bread_0063

This awesome ruffle topped strapless dress that I wore to my friends wedding this weekend. (Though, I looked nothing like the model in the picture. Sorry boobs happen.) And this totally rocking purse that went along with it. (Look ma! I’m all growed up and have a bag with stuff in it) Orange wedges. Seriously, this is the only orange piece of clothing I own. Fancy pants mascara. Don’t get my wrong, I’m all for CoverGirl mascara, but this stuff rocks the casbah for when you need great eyes all night long.   PrintBanana Bread with Nutella Swirls Ingredients2 cups flour, […]

Baked Giveaway & a Lemon Lemon Loaf

Ever since I saw Baked I knew I had to have it. Since purchasing the first book, I have made several of the recipes and loved each and every one. When the newest book from the Brooklyn bakers came out, I wanted it more than the first. I wasn’t disappointed and even wrote a review about just how great I found the book to really be. In honor of the books awesomeness the publisher has agreed to let me give one away on Pass the Sushi. So, you can either read my adorable anecdotes or scroll down to see how […]

Spiced Pear Cake

Fall is finally here and it welcomed itself in to town with one hell of a storm last night. It’s 9 million degrees outside and doesn’t feel like fall at all – but woot! It’s finally here! I don’t think I have ever anticipated a season so much before. Its not so much the fact that its fall – its what that means. Fall means pumpkins, falling leaves, crisp nights, hearty foods and soon (haha – yes, this is where you can all mock me) Christmas!   Yep, it’s time for my holiday harvesting booty to be in full swing […]
