Since I don't know as many people here in California I have a lot of time on my hands. What a better way to pass the time than cook! Or at least attempt to cook. Its true, I have made a few boogers, as my hubby likes to call them. But some, some have turned out pretty tasty.
Most of my recipes I find on pinterest. There's a lot of food on there that inspires me. This is one. I pinned it awhile ago and then my bestie told me she made it as well. She said they were amazing so I gave them a whirl.
Now like I stated before. I am no baker. More times than not, it ends up in the garbage. Now, one might give up and come to terms with baking just not being their "thing". Clearly I have not hit that wall just yet. But I am getting closer.
SO-first off this recipe states to add melted butter to the cake mix. FAIL. I added room temp butter. Not to lose hope, I poured the whole mix in a pan and "melted it". lol
Once melted I followed the rest of the recipe. With more attention to detail this time.
Then came the filling......now I can't remember if I added 4 or 5 cups of powered sugar. Of course it called for 4. I am guessing I put in 5 because it was damn sweet! Too sweet for me. The hubby loved it though so I guess I did ok.
My advice. Pay attention to the recipe :) and enjoy!
And then this. Also a pinterest jewel. This recipe is from Giada De Laurntiis. Heard of her? Well she is the cutest little thing. And how she stays so tiny while cooking meals like this, I have NO I-D-E-A. I'm thinking it less the yoga and more likely a great plastic surgeon.
So since I wasn't baking, I felt more comfortable making this meal. I didn't have all the ingredient's so I improvised. Like the mascarpone cheese. Nope, didn't have it. So instead, I used a little cream cheese, a little half and half and some parmesan cheese. It came out pretty damn good! I loved it actually. It could of been a little creamer, but for fats sake, who needed the extra poundage.......it was NOM NOM!
Give it a try!
