A Disaster of a Chocolate Strawberry Cake

This cake was delicious, but a fucking mess. I forgot to grease the cake pans like a goddamn amateur. It was my friend's birthday cake (sorry, Stacy), but she was nice about it. Seemed wasteful to throw away perfectly good cake that was just a little (a lot) broken. We don't waste cake around here!… Continue reading A Disaster of a Chocolate Strawberry Cake

Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies

So my mom finally wrote down her chocolate chip cookie recipe. If you remember, she's not great at measurements. She doesn't understand that baking is science. In fact, she scoffed when I told her. In her defense, the cookies always turn out perfect. I figured her baking skills are genetic, so my version of these… Continue reading Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies
