Girlscout Cookies

DSC_0024

I’ve had my fair share of designer/artisanal cookies (laduree, tates, etc) but nothing gets me more excited than Girlscout’s cookies. They’ve been a favorite of mine ever since I was a girl scout. Except I wasn’t really all that interested in selling them, just eating them.. I have many boxes of Samoa’s, but too embarrassed […]

I like unusual shapes, colors, and feelings when seeing a cake. In this specific situation, I flavored the cake with pistachio and used imagery that resonates with me. Ever since my friend Chelsea made me watch Vampyros Lesbos, I was hooked on the imagery of the film. I have a girl crush on …

Cold Truffles

NEW PICTURES 441 copy

Truffle ice cream. It doesn’t get much more indulgent than this. I’ve never seen something so beautiful. I’m starting the Creme Anglaise here, which is the base for many ice creams. Its a custard base used for desserts, consisting of heavy cream or milk, egg yolks and sugar. I grate the truffles into the …
