It’s the Freakin’ Weekend

The bench in front of Donuts Delite in Rochester. I got excited as we drove by and The BF said, "You know, you can't eat that."

If you’re reading this blog for the first time today (and hello to you!) then you might not know but tomorrow, July 13, is my birthday. I. love. my. birthday. It’s smack dab in the middle of summer so childhood birthdays included big family parties in the backyard, the weather is warm so I can always wear a cute dress to any type of celebration, and it’s a full day where I’m bombarded by texts and phone calls and Hallmark cards from all the people in my life that I love. Seriously, what’s better than that?!

This year The BF is taking me to Red Rooster Harlem for dinner (one of my top 5 favorite restaurants in NY) and I’ll spend the rest of the day eating pancakes and avoiding the rain. Perfection? That it is.

Here are a few links for your weekend! Enjoy!

I’m baking this recipe for my birthday cupcakes! FACT: Rainbow chip and funfetti are NOT the same.

“What’s in Prince’s fridge?” (yes, THAT Prince!) is perhaps the funniest and weirdest thing I’ve read in a long time.

My mom made this incredible white cake with lemon frosting and raspberry filling last weekend when I was home in Rochester and it was DIVINE.

Speaking of Rochester, Donuts Delite in Irondequoit has a cannoli donut… yes… a CANNOLI DONUT… that is essentially heaven in pastry form (or a powdered sugar yeast donut with cannoli cream filling). Why they don’t have a line like the cronut, I’ll never know.

And a final reminder to sign up for Spice to Meet You. Next month’s spice is a total winner.

Happy Friday!

Vacation cocktails are the best kind

Vacation cocktails are the best kind

It’s hard for me to celebrate TOO much that today starts the weekend because last Friday I was sunning myself on a hot beach in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Sigh. I guess if every day was vacation then it wouldn’t be as special… I’d gladly give it a try, though.

Today’s post is a mini one, just some links around the interwebz you might enjoy.

I could never live my whole life this way, but something about this super healthy blog has me transfixed. (Undressed Skeleton)

This month’s issue of Martha Stewart Living is the Summer Food Issue and I seriously want to lick every. single. page. Just go buy it already.

I made this fancy tuna melt (with lemon, olive oil, capers, and freshly shaved parmesan on baguette slices) for dinner last night and it was out of this world. (TheKitchn)

Have you heard of a cronut? It’s a CROISSANT/DONUT and I’ve never wanted anything so much in my whole life. Just saying: my birthday is in 2 months and someone should probably start working on getting me one right. now.

The whopper of a flop food festival The Great GoogaMooga is this weekend in Brooklyn if you care to venture out… or you could read all my reasons NOT to go and then eat at a nice restaurant instead.
