A Picture Illustration of Recent Kitchen Musings

I like to cook a lot. It's an obsession/addiction/passion/love/hobby of mine. My partner in crime Derek also has an unending love for all things delicious, so together we appreciate finding the new best dish to try.

So I thought I'd share some of the things we've cooked/baked in recent times past. So feel free to eat your eyes out Ben & Jerry.

Cinnamon Rolls. Are. My thing. Like MY THING. ALWAYS. #Can't touch this 

This is a cake I made for my beautiful friend/lover Suni

Chocolate glazed donuts. Mmm and as a plus they were baked, not fried

Oatmeal Creme Pies. Seriously. So so so so good. I can't control myself

Chocolate Tiramisu Mousse. Velvety good

Giada's Roman Chicken. Sweet gravy it's good.

Barefoot Contessa's Roast Chicken. Delish.

Flourless chocolate cake with a homemade caramel drizzle. Decadent

Restaurant style steaks with a blue cheese sauce. Hands down best steak I've ever had.

Chocolate layered cake I made for a friend's birthday

Lemon Gnocchi's with a brown butter sage reduction (Giada de Laurentiis)

Caramelized onion pizza with sausage, basil and Gorgonzola. Good gravy it's so explosively good.

Homemade french toast (Yes, I made the bread too). Mm mm.

Martha Stewart's Molten Chocolate Lava Cake. My all time favorite dessert. Oh goodness it's good.

Double chocolate brownie cupcakes; Another successful Pinterest trial.

Homemade cream puffs with ice cream. Better than store bought.

Barefoot Contessa's Blueberry Crumb Cake.

Giada's Chicken Picatta. One of my favorite go to dishes

Barefoot Contessa's Orzo Pasta Salad. It's Uber terrifically magically good.

Strawberry Shortcake with homemade whip Cream (Barefoot Contessa)

Red Velvet Cake for my friend Meredith's birthday. Getting in touch with my feminine side. I think it's pretty.

Tomato, feta, basil bruschetta. Amen.

Chocolate Dream Lovers cake. Soooooo Good.

Eggs Benedict. How had I never tried this before? It's amazing!

Salted Caramel Double Chocolate Brownies (Martha Stewart)

Blue Cheese Burger with Homemade Guacamole and Caramelized Onions. Mm Mm Mm. Yeah

So as you may notice, I'm pretty into the Foodnetwork (Barefoot Contessa and Giada De Laurentiis). Sue me but I just love it. The food obsession must go on! More food posts certainly to come!
