Irish Dream Cheesecake

Irish Dream Cheesecake

First order of business: Did you check out my shiny new blog all about the love and joy of all things carnivorous and rolled in bacon? Please go check out Girl Carnivore, my new baby and like the page on facebook as well for more slaphappy Kita randomness. I just referred to myself in the third person… awkward. But seriously, Girl Carnivore is going to be my new home for a much more defined and structured blog where I explore the world of grilling, butchering, smoking, grinding and creating great food that sticks to the key theme – meat. Get it.. carnivore… But what about […]

Corned Beef and Cabbage

I thought for sure that I would be able to use the last week to catch up on some reading. For those who may not be regulars here, I had my wisdom teeth pulled, and was kind of looking forward to a few days ‘vacation’ from normal duties. But now I feel like I owe everyone a huge apology. A blogging friend of mine asked how I manage my time the other day. Between cooking and getting the posts up (not to mention the dishes) food blogging can take up a large chunk of time. She asked how I returned […]

How about we start celebrating the Irish way… with a lot of alcohol! Yeah, I see what that bad boy is missing. Whoop! There it is! These little babies were supposed to be cupcakes… they were also supposed to be made with a pure stout, but all we had was Black and Tan, so I went with it. If I am making a cupcake though, I want it piled high with icing, and I wasn’t sure Irish Cream icing on a Black and Tan cupcake wouldn’t be too much, so I decided to whip out my adorable mini cake pan. […]

Irish Cream Chocolate Pots De Crème

We really have to eat more salads Why does every hairdresser tell you something different? It really kind of ticks me off. I get a different story about whats good or bad for my head from everyone of them. Don’t they know I am convinced I am going to fry my hair off one of these days and have to rock a shaved head? Hellooo. I could totally not rock ‘shaved head’ by the way. The never ending cycle of motivational pins next to cupcakes loaded with frosting and dripping with glaze cracks me up. You are not getting skinny […]

Irish Cream Fudge and The Happy Baker Review

fudge12

It was about a year ago when I noticed I was no longer flipping through cookbooks just waiting for the next delicious thing to pop out at me. No, I was reading them. Front to back. Absorbing the words as though it were the hottest Nicholas Sparks novel to date. This is what makes Happy Baker: A Girls Guide to Emotional Baking grab your attention. Not the pages filled with gorgeous goodies, but the stories that get you from recipe to recipe. Erin writes bout her experiences from being young and in high school to dating and falling in and […]
