Apple Cider & Caramel Cake

Yesterday all I wanted in my life was cheesecake. I thought about it all day, all night, and I’m pretty sure I dreamt about cheesecake. Now you may be thinking to yourself, “Tara is drunk, that picture does not look like cheesecake” AND YOU’D BE RIGHT. Wait…no, not about the drunk part, just that it’s not a […]

Maple Bacon Caramel Macarons

I seemed to have a large abundance of egg whites hanging out in my fridge, and just the right amount of almond flour hiding in my cupboard. I knew it was time. Time to tackle macarons again. But what kind shall I make?!?! I still had two little bottles of yuzu juice, and thought to […]

A Bunch of Things

Creme Brulee

I noticed there was a big ol’ container of 38% cream in the fridge left from Christmas, and I decided that like a productive human being I should probably use that before it goes bad. What better dessert to make with heavy cream than creme brulee? I know I know, I’m so smart. Also, I […]
