As you probably saw on my first cake pop post, I knew these little bebes would be a dessert I’d be making again and again. Now let me tell you, I have taken tons of treats to work for my coworkers, but cake pops seem to be the top request that I have been getting for the past couple of months since I first took some in. Funny thing is, only like 5 employees even got to try them but everybody is begging for them, due to their recent pop up in coffee shops.

Where do I even start?? I had never had rice pudding until this AMAZING place opened up two blocks from my apartment last spring…. Pudding on the Rice. It’s the cutest little shop that serves chilled rice pudding in a variety of flavors, including my favorite, Strawberry Fields Forever. You can order a sweet or savory crepe that is made to order, a rice bowl filled with veggies, frozen yogurt, or of course…rice pudding. I’ve been addicted ever since I first went and keep my punch card handy. If you like them on Facebook, they’ll let you know when you can get free treats, get %15 off, etc..

What is better than chocolate cake and vanilla cake in the same bite? Nothing. A childhood classic that is so moist it needs no frosting. Mhm, no frosting. It’s the perfect choice for brunch, an afternoon snack, or anytime you planning on having a cup of coffee or milk.

Chicken Tortilla Soup is one of my favorite soups! Whenever I see it on a menu I order a cup. I hadn’t really thought of making my own until recently when I have had incredible luck with other soups and chowders. I come from somewhat of a Hispanic background, my Dad is half Mexican and half Korean. Needless to say Mexican food was a real staple in our home and I have brought that into my own home as I have gotten older. Read the rest of this entry »

All of my favorite candies have two things in common….chocolate….and caramel…Twix, Milky Way, Snickers, Milka Crunchy Caramel, that one thing from Milwaukie Candyland, etc… So I decided to put these two into a cupcake! :) I have made caramel buttercream before but it was only semi-homemade. I will include options for either, but I assure you, caramel is not hard to make :) It just takes a careful eye.
I am always in the mood to bake. The thought of putting on my cupcake apron, blasting some music, and covering myself in flour is just too tempting! But the urge to bake gets even more prevalent when there is something else I should be doing, like homework, or cleaning, or exercising. Oops. Oh well! I guess baking is my form of procrastination. :) I should have been doing my German project but instead I decided to make some cupcakes!

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 »
