Whenever I get a rare second to think (millisecond is more accurate), I think to myself how much my life has changed since I became a food blogger and freelancer food writer/photographer.

How did I come about these edible diamond covered cheesecake and white chocolate cake batter cupcakes? Well, let me tell you.
I’m currently laying in a bathtub of diamonds as I type this post. No, it doesn’t hurt.
Why? Because chicks love things that are unattainable and sparkle a lot. Like that glittering diamond vampire.

I clearly cannot let go of Mardi Gras. I promise you one day that I will be there.
This is not to say that I have never visited NOLA. We stopped by during a more ambiguous time of year for a wedding.
Two things are for certain:
1. I would gain the weight of two [...]Continue Reading →
It was only inevitable that at some point I create a baked good with a Star Wars theme. Let’s face it. Star Wars is to the internet as the Kardashians are to celebrity gossip magazines.
