food food food: the sweet edition

Ok, I feel like I've talked with a million people about it...
but I cook way more now that I'm married.

Ok fine, I cooked a good amount when I was single.
But really, it was just when I had an excuse.
I don't even know what I ate on a day to day basis...
A yogurt here, and some pasta with olive oil and salt there?
Oh my gosh.
That is no way to live.
But seriously!?
Who wants to cook a full meal for one person?
Nobody, that's who.

But now I have a husband! SCORE.
And mostly, all my dreams of creating recipes and making dinners are coming true.
Desserts are different.
My husband would rather have Ben & Jerry's than anything baked.
Which is an absolute TRAVESTY for my baking dreams,
[but a secret blessing for my waistline...]
Mostly, you know I have jumped at every opportunity to bake I can get my hands on.

Anyways, today I'm going to share some of my favorite internet recipe sweets from over the years.

Our Best Bites Buttermilk Caramel Syrup is an absolute dream.
I use it on pancakes, I use it on ice cream and crepes....
I might even accidentally slip a spoonful from the fridge now and again.
[[don't judge me]]
I made this for an office retreat this past weekend,
and somebody told me how they didn't like pancakes until they tried this syrup.
True Life. You can't get a better testimonial than that.

Smitten Kitchen's Nectarine Brown Butter Buckle..
So sweet, so awesome.
Butter makes everything better.
But we already knew this, so it should come as no surprise.
Smitten Kitchen always comes through for me.
And you can search by ingredient. Done and done.

Your Cup of Cake's modified cake mix Chocolate cupcakes
Guys, these are a Taylor baking classic.
Every baby shower I baked for [including Clara's],
every dance party, every everything.
And people love them.
And it's boxed cake mix.
Win, win, win, win, win.
I'll admit, I've never made the rolo ones and I use my own frosting recipe.
[Typically, I do homemade cream cheese frosting and stick an oreo on top.]
But whatever floats your boat.

Maybe drizzle buttermilk syrup over the top?
I'm getting carried away I can feel it.
There you have it.
I plan to share my favorite dinner recipes soon.
Be on the lookout!
