And boy have I missed my sweet little blog! I apologize for being gone for so long. Like many of you know, I was in Europe searching out my future home.. :) Traveled to six countries in just a few weeks and it was fantastic. Visiting all of those different places led me to amazing culinary adventures as well..
Let me start by letting you know that Fabian’s mom Judith is a wonderful cook and quite the baker and happens to make Austria’s best Tiramisu, layers of Heaven, I’m telling ya. Tasting her’s has me determined to make my own sometime this year, and I am both scared and excited, mostly because I know it will never live up to hers!
Three words: Pizza in Italy.
And let me tell you about something that has me soooo excited…. Before I left I was researching all the cupcake shops in Zurich and Geneva. Well after a huge disappointment in Geneva (one did not exist, the other was closed both times I went and had no hours posted) I hit a jackpot in Zurich…. :)
Zurich, Switzerland 8001
The shop was sooo cute and when we walked in, the woman working was piping cupcakes at the counter… All of the cupcakes were adorable, not to mention delicious. The only draw back was the price. Everything in Switzerland is outrageously priced, but the cupcakes landed about $6 for a regular sized and $4 for a mini! Can you even imagine? Anyway, hopefully if we move to Zurich I can get a job there and make cupcakes and spread my American love all over Zurich! ;)
So I am back, and I am taking 20 credits in school this term so I am super busy but I have quite a few blog entries with recipes ready for you all. :)
Coming up with will be Lemon Bars, Triple Chocolate Oreo Cookies, Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes, etc….

Thanks to our obsession with Groupon my bf and I purchased the perfect one for Isabel in the Pearl District. It was $10 for $20 for breakfast, fantastic! We hadn’t been there before….and we will be going back for sure!! Our service was very good, not busy but I would guess weekends are packed! We picked the perfect day to go. :)
Our food was fantastic. I had read a lot of reviews online before going so that I would have an idea of what to pick. I ordered the Blackberry Pancakes, which were soooo good! 3 perfect sized pancakes with a great texture and perfect amount of berries. I also liked that they aren’t blueberries, everybody does those! Served with a little pad of butter, (not a heart stopping amount) delicious maple syrup, and a sweet little amount of blackberry puree! Yum! Read the rest of this entry »
