I have this whole weekend off from work. Which means trying to enjoy the crazy nice weather we’re having and working on a take home midterm and having good breakfasts and fingers crossed busting out the grill for some of Steve’s carne asada.
It also means watching terrible tv shows whilst in bed. Maybe while eating carne asada. Not.
I am going to make perfect macaroons this weekend. I don’t have the recipe yet, but it’s supposed to involve turning the coconut into almost a paste to make the cookie creamier. We’ll see what happens.
And just in case that wasn’t enough sweetness, Megan’s got a chocolate Thursday cake that I think is acceptable to eat on the weekend. (via Take a Megabite)
Also, interruption: based off all the links I’ve compiled this is going to be a very sweet grocery list. If sweet isn’t your thing, go eat some meatballs.
I’ve been wanting to make this buttermilk cake from Joy the Baker for a while. I bought a cast iron, attempted to season it and totally failed. I have yet to make the cake. That’s real life. I’m gonna season that skillet and make this cake in the next few days and share how to properly season a skillet so your life doesn’t crumble around you. (via Joy the Baker)
also p.s. How great is her milkshake video?
p.p.s. How great was that question?
gif wizard Izy made us all samoa popcorn. Now it’s going to be even more awkward when I turn down the girl scouts by telling them I’m making popcorn instead of their addictive cookies. (via Top with Cinnamon)
Two words: CHURRO BALLS. If frying things didn’t make so upset on several levels then I would have already made them. (via the Kitchn)
I need a birthday to go to. So I can make this cake and impress a bunch of people. (via Smitten Kitchen)
Lastly I found a box of gelatin in the back of the cupboard yesterday. It doesn’t expire for another 2 years. I think that means I should take a whack at Panna Cotta. Holy crap that looks easy. (via the Kitchn)
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have some french toast to make.
