Simple Mexi-Bowls & the Most Delicious Recipe for Mexi-Style Shredded Beef

A sign reading: “Necessity is the mother of invention” should be hung in my kitchen for sure — it totally describes my cooking life. It goes a little something like this: “What?!? it is 2:30 already?!? … Oh gosh. What am I going to make […]

The Perfect Milk Chocolate Buttercream ((6 minute Buttercream))

Homemade buttercream is on my shortlist of favorite things. I won’t say NEVER, but I cannot imagine myself ever buying canned frosting. Not when the real deal is so easy and magnificently tasty. Another bonus? The ingredient list doesn’t sound like instructions for a chemistry […]
