Gluten Free German Chocolate Cupcakes with Boozy Buttercream and Whiskey Salted Caramel Sauce (And Why Dogs Shouldn’t Eat Them)

Morgan’s birthday started off unintentionally early, as our dog, Tank, managed to get a hold of six of these cupcakes yesterday and ate them, wrappers, boozy frosting, and all, in a matter of minutes. Obviously, these cupcakes were not created with Tank’s digestive system in mind and she quickly regretted her thievery. As Tank pouted on the couch, I cleaned up the remnants of the cake while fuming to one of my friends about the situation…

Homemade Basil Vodka

The other night, Morgan made us his delicious Lemon Basil Pesto Chicken Salad for dinner. He brought home a package of fresh basil, and only used about half of it for the salad.

Food memories are dangerous things. The other day I was reminiscing about the time I spent in Spokane, Washington during college and I recalled many late nights at The Onion, a local restaurant chain. Some friends shared that there were secret menu items available only by request, one in particular was worth knowing about. That’s when they introduced me to beer batter fried Oreos.

Now, I have a deep love of fried food. It reminds me of sipping sweet tea in rocking chairs on a Southern porch…

Moving and Comfort Food: Tilapia and Artichoke Hearts with Lemon Butter Caper Sauce

Moving into a new apartment is unequivocally stressful. Especially when you are combining two people’s accumulated junk into a tiny one-bedroom in Brooklyn while accompanied by an anxiety-ridden dog. Tank reminds us a little too much of Helper Dog, especially when she whines and decides to lick all the things.

In order to keep us sane and less likely to scream at each other, we decided to take a week off from cooking at home. Here’s what we indulged in…
