Spring Has Sprung!

It is now officially spring. Passover, Easter, rain, all signs that spring has sprung! I say this as it's cold, dark and raining outside but by golly it is spring!

Easter basket glory!
Just as with the start of other seasons, I have managed to make a spring to-do list. Mostly this relates to doing stuff in life but now with a focus on food and blogging! So on the to-bake list (including but not limited to):
  1. Chocolate Bourbon Milkshakes (pause, digest, be jealous).
  2. Macadamia nut recipes- going to Hawaii this spring (what up?!) so in honor of this will attempt to make Hawaii-inspired things which may just end up being macadamia nut clusters covered in chocolate. Oh darn.
  3. Cannolis (spoiler alert!) for my roommate who isn't into super sweet stuff but loves Cannolis. Her birthday is in July so I have plenty of time to experiment and probably botch some Cannolis.
Technically the following is not about baking but a food quest. A quest to find the best cupcakes. I have a list and an accomplice and together we will seek out delicious baked goods. There was a tv show once that was very short lived, October Road, and there was an episode where they were talking about this kid in high school who ate cupcakes really fast. It inspired a comic book called the Cupcake Kid and had a superhero mantra about combining flour, sugar, eggs and all (all rights reserved for abc and October Road etc. etc.). I tried to find it but alas, I have not. But it was an episode called "Revenge of the Cupcake Kid".
Daffodils are my fav! What a shock, being yellow and all.
And to avoid becoming 4,000 pounds as a result of said quest, I would also like to do a 5k in the spring. That should be fun...or terrible. The last to do should be pretty easy: go see Jurassic Park in 3D. Yup, they have finally accepted that great movies were made in the 90's and they should just keep replaying them. Bigger and better than ever.

I promise, there will be real food on this blog soon. This week will be quite the ode to Smitten Kitchen!

Lastly, yet another new cookbook has joined the family. This times the epic galactic makings of Star Wars! Super duper dorked out and pumped. Cook these I must. Do or do not, there is no try.
