I bet you can guess where these are from! Just a quick post to share one of our favorites - Magnolia's Bakery. But only the original downtown one. They are only delicious if you have to wait in line for them! ;)

WE'RE BACKKKKK and so sorry!

Well, Brittany's birthday came along - 21 woooot, then it was spring break and this and that, then finals and now here we are in mid MAY. But I have a post and it's a tasty one.

Say hello to mini, dark chocolate fudge, raspberry jelly filled cupcakes WITH cream cheese frosting. SO Delicious. I had about 20...
We baked these for another event at The Gates with Mike Clemente Events. It was the opening weekend of Alice In Wonderland and they were quite a hit!

Basically.. you bake a normal cupcake, your flavor of choice. We went with chocolate because - hello it's delicious.
Then after they are cooled (this is crucial) you infuse the jelly. This sounds a lot harder than it is. You just go to your local Target, Kmart, etc and but a cake decorating kit. It should come with a 'filling tool' which is just a long nozzle (?) that you attach to an icing bag with the jelly, we think seedless is best. We used Polaner seedless raspberry but of course you could make your own!

OK, I promise it's not as hard as I'm making it sound... the pictures will help!

We always seem to find interesting ways to use cooking utensils.
But look at that delicious batter.
We had quite the revelation during this process - we SUCK at decorating.
Britt is so serious while doing the jelly infusion.
Fluffy, delicious cream cheese frosting.
Yup, we used allll the jelly.
Frosting away.
My masterpieces!

I mean.. if you don't think that looks good... YUM

I promise this is the easiest and most delicious meal ever. So basically here is what you do you put the cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper in a ziplock, then you rub down the chicken (thinly sliced) with some oil put the chicken in the bag and let sit for 2 or how ever many hours you want. You just have to make sure you aren't starving when you start this because it really tastes best when sitting for at least 2 hours (we didn't eat until 10 pm). Once its done marinating grill it up and enjoy. We made corn and had a salad on the side and it was perrrrrfect!
Here is the real recipe/directions haha via one of our favorite websites eat better america:
1/2 cup lime juice
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 12 oz)
1 teaspoon olive oil

1. In resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix lime juice, cilantro, salt and black pepper. Rub chicken with oil; place in same bag, turning to coat chicken in lime mixture. Refrigerate 2 hours.
2. Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Cover and grill chicken 4 to 6 inches from medium-high heat about 10 minutes per side or until a meat thermometer inserted in thickest portion reads 170°F and juices run clear.

mmmm fettucini alfreado

So this isn't exactly healthy but I was craving a delicious meal and i couldn't stop myself. This is my mom's homemade recipe but i am sure there are tons of recipes online to use. I was so excited that it actually tasted good, no great! Here are some pics - I added fresh peas and paired it with a white wine and a some fresh italian bread. DE-LISH.

flipping out for Flip!

Although our moto is save money and eat healthy, everyone has to splurge every once in awhile right?
Well the other day Britt and I were doing a little bit of shopping in Bloomingdales and I guess the shopping worked up an appetite because we decided the farthest we could go to eat was to Flip which is in the bottom level of the department store. So anywho, it was amazing. I mean, AMAZING. The burgers, the fries, the shakes, the onion rings, and they even serve Crumbs cupcakes (our favorite) although we didn't have room for them after all of the rest of the food. So i guess in conclusion we are saying if you want a good burger go to Flip!
Here are some pictures to make your mouth water.
