I had some strawberries to use up before we leave for Texas and had been eyeballin’ this recipe for a while. They are Roasted Strawberry Cream Cheese Rolls from @kingarthurflour Sift magazine. These are seriously delicious 🤤Roasting the strawberries intensifies the berries and it works so nicely with the soft cream cheese dough 👌🏻 So good in fact that I made a second batch since I had leftover filling. Even though eating it with a spoon, straight from the bowl, was pretty darn tasty, too 🤪🤣 #myturquoisecounter #kingarthurflour #siftmagazine 🍓 🍓 #feedfeed #thebakefeed #eeeeeats #huffposttaste #buzzfeast #buzzfeedfood #yum #strawberries #homemadebread #yahoofood #tastingtable #tastemade #gloobyfood #instafood #yummy #imsomartha #mywilliamssonoma #foodphotography
@avengers End Game with my people 💎🔮🏮🧽🦠🔶(I’m pretending those are the Infinity Stones). Obvi, fans. Ho was my 2nd fave #avengers - #antman (Loki is 1st 💚💛), Wei is #hawkeye , and Eden is an adorable #rocket (she has cute overalls on that have his name patch). I didn’t get any group pics because it was a miracle I was standing upright and my brain just wasn’t computing 🤪 #stupidmigraines J was an amazing Nick Fury - complete with eye patch and gun holster, my dad was awesome and did Star Lord, and LaRae and I did the easiest #Disneybounds known to man. I went as Carol Danvers since you know, she dresses like me anyways and I had been puking for days with my dumb head so it was the best I got 🤪#hellobandshirtdocsandflannels and @laraever cheated because she looks like Captain Marvel so she’s a cheater 😆🤣 Love going to @elcapitanthtre for movies like this. The WHOLE place is cheering and hootin and hollerin and it’s AMAZING! #elcapitan #avengersendgame #disney #disneyfamily #marvel #captainmarvel #disneybound Can’t wait to see it again! #missingmymomma #stupidfibro
It’s been a while, old friends 😍 J had requested scones so my beloved @ovenly made a visit to #myturquoisecounter These are maple pecan with a maple vanilla bean glaze 👌🏻 Sometimes you can’t beat a classic; they are just so scrummy! 🤤 Lofty and tender with a touch of maple that pairs well with the crunchy pecans. I always add a generous pinch of flaky sea salt to the maple glaze since I stan a salty/sweet moment 🙌🏻 #ovenlycookbook 🌼 🌼 🌼 #kingarthurflour #feedfeed #thebakefeed #mywilliamssonoma #eeeeeats #yahoofood #gloobyfood #tastingtable #scones #yum #igfoodie #maple #pecans #heresmyfood #foodwinewomen #huffposttaste #thekitchn #f52grams #foodphotography #buzzfeedfood #buzzfeast
Look at those layers 😍 Scallion Pancakes coming through with the crispy, flaky goodness 🙌🏻 That dipping sauce was 💯, too! Soy sauce, honey, red pepper flakes, rice vinegar, scallions, and toasted sesame oil 🤤 We reheated then later on my @bakingsteel and they came right back to their crispy gloriousness 👏🏻 Cooking it in the @lodgecastiron made it super crispy to start with 👍🏻#myturquoisecounter #cooksillustrated #scallionpancakes #feedfeed #atkgrams #huffposttaste #yahoofood #gloobyfood #yum #heresmyfood #instagood #instafood #igfoodie #foodphotography #thekitchn #f52grams #imsomartha #mywilliamsonoma #yummy #foodwinewomen #scallions #bakingsteel #tastingtable
So I’ve had this @cooksillustrated recipe for Scallion Pancakes saved for a few years now, always wanting to try it but putting it off because I thought it would be too complicated. Finally tackled it today and guess what? It’s so easy 🤣 It was the easiest dough to make and the process was fast - just rolling and coiling. I had never even heard of #scallionpancakes until I saw them online but the crispy exterior and flaky layers intrigued me. In simplest terms, for those that don’t know what they are like me, it’s almost like a layered tortilla stuffed with scallions. @cooksillustrated knocked it out of the park with their version. It is shatteringly crispy and flaky, due to cooking in my @lodgecastiron pan, and just the right amount of sesame oil and scallions. I added red pepper flakes to the layers for a lil kick. I will definitely make these again 👌🏻 #myturquoisecounter #cooksillustrated • • • #feedfeed #kingarthurflour #mywilliamssonoma #atkgrams #eeeeeats #yahoofood #gloobyfood #yum #heresmyfood #instagood #igfood #foodporn #foodphotography #iphoneography #huffposttaste #thekitchn #f52grams #yummy #scallions #foodwinewomen #lodgecastiron
Memorial 2019 🥰 My papa did a fabulous job and we’re so happy to be able to attend such an important event with our nearest and dearest 💗 Side note: when did my daughter turn into a teenager?!? #1sttimewearinglippy
‘Twas a lovely beach day on Saturday @boymomofchaos @candice_medranobot In all my 40 years(yikes, that sucks to say out loud 😣), I have NEVER seen that many intact, alive shells/clams/things?!? They were walking and burrowing into the sand, it was so cool! Eden is holding a dead one with an appendage hanging out 🥴 I also remembered why I hate the “big” beach 😜 It’s sooooo far to the water, our beach has spoiled us 🤭😂 Wish I could have stayed longer but my head was being particularly mean and puking in a bag isn’t that fun AND not being able to eat all the snacks that one is supposed to enjoy at the beach sucked. I mean, is it even a beach party if you don’t get to eat sandy cheese balls?!? 🤪😂 Good thing we still have an entire summer ahead of us 🙌🏻🔥🌊🏄🏼‍♂️🏖
Super fun day with the kiddos 🥰 Finally got to see “How to Train Your Dragon Hidden World”(even though I had a mild, umm MAJOR meltdown when the guy mentioned End Game went on sale 😫🤯😳 I spent the 1st 25 min frantically trying to get tickets off websites that kept crashing),went to Round Table(why don’t people eat at pizza parlors anymore?), and ended with some park time because it was so pretty outside #loveallmykiddos #gimmeafullcarandImhappy @boymomofchaos
Took a cue from @litchfieldkitchen and made some peanut butter cookies(this is seriously my 4th time in under 2 weeks 🤦🏼‍♀️). She had added salt and dark chocolate to hers so I followed suit 🙌🏻 I like chocolate with every bite so I drizzled a tad on the crazy side 😜 Topped some of them with @maldonsalt because it packs a delicious salty wallop 🤤 I have about 3 more batches to bake off(and Chocolate Crinkles) but it’s hot and I’m tired so I’m just gonna eat these cookies right now 🤣 #thatshowIroll #myturquoisecounter 🥜 🍫 #kingarthurflour #huffposttaste #eeeeeats #thebakefeed #feedfeed #yum #instafood #foodphotography #mywilliamssonoma #f52grams #valrhonausa #peanutbutter #cookies #homemadeisbest #thekitchn #heresmyfood #imsomartha #yummy #chocolate #gloobyfood #yahoofood
I thought somebody else might need to see the peaceful ocean right now, too 🌊🌅 #loveourbackyard #serenitynow
I needed cake. I made a cake. The end. 😂 I was trying to find a cake to throw together after meeting and every one I wanted to make required something I didn’t have. And I didn’t want to go to the store. So back to my recipe stacks I went. I had picked up the @tasteofhome Church Potluck magazine and they had a recipe for a Cream Cheese Sheet Cake that met my immediate needs - chocolate in some form ✅ sprinkles ✅ items I had in my fridge/pantry ✅ I used @kingarthurflour chocolate frosting recipe that was part of their recipe of the year - Classic Birthday Cake. It’s so good and a super easy cake to throw together at the last minute. It’s a cross between a cream cheese sugar cookie and a pound cake 🤤 The kidlets loved it, too 👌🏻 #myturquoisecounter #cake #tasteofhome 🎂 🎂 🎂 #kingarthurflour #feedfeed #thebakefeed #huffposttaste #foodphotography #yahoofood #gloobyfood #yum #creamcheese #chocolate #eeeeeats #foodporn #foodwinewomen #f52grams #thekitchn #sprinkles #yummy #madewithkitcheaid #valrhonausa #anthropologiehome
Time for a random fact about me(this pizza is a major hint 😏) I LOVE olives - not like, not kinda love, it’s a major hardcore kind of love. I’m a pretty fussy eater(I’m looking at you 🥚 🤢) and there aren’t many things I L. O. V. E. but pizza and olives have to be in my top 5. Put them both together and I’m a very happy camper. Can you believe that in all my home pizza making, that this was my 1st time putting olives on a pizza?! I know, I’m surprised too 🤣 And the best part? No one in my family will touch it so it’s ALL MINE *insert maniacal laugh* And since I knew it was all mine I went all in on the olivey goodness - chopped and sliced. I’m surprised any cheese even poked through because when I put it in the oven you couldn’t even see cheese 🤣🤣 #heaven #myturquoisecounter #bakingsteel 🍕 🍕 🍕 #kingarthurflour #pizza #pizzanight #olives #eeeeeats #feedfeed #huffposttaste #buzzfeast #buzzfeedfood #foodphotography #yum #nytimesfood #foodwinewomen #forkyeah #thekitchn #f52grams #redstaryeast #madewithkitchenaid #homemadeisbest #yummy #homemadepizza
Another view of my Sticky Toffee Figgy Chocolate Pudding for @valleyfig @cookscountry #ValleyFigVallentine @testkitchen recipe with Mission & Calimyrna Figs and dark chocolate chunks. I made a double batch of the toffee sauce because Momma didn’t raise no fool 😝 #myturquoisecounter #vfigfeed #atkgrams #cookscountry * * * #kingarthurflour #feedfeed #thebakefeed #eeeeeats #huffposttaste #buzzfeast #buzzfeedfood #foodwinewomen #thekitchn #f52grams #heresmyfood #instafood #igfood #madewithkitchenaid #yum
Does anyone want to stick their head under that toffee sauce drizzle? 🤤 @cookscountry @valleyfig are having a contest for a dessert featuring figs and chocolate. I wanted to think outside the box, so I put my twist on Sticky Toffee Pudding 🇬🇧 So I present Sticky Toffee Figgy Chocolate Pudding 🥰 It has Medjool Dates, @sunmaid Mission Figs and Calimyrna Figs, and dark chocolate chunks. I used @testkitchen recipe for Sticky Toffee Pudding and added the figs & chocolate. The toffee sauce is absolutely DIVINE 🙌🏻 I kinda want to drink of a cup of it 😋 I went the traditional route and topped it with heavy cream, swirled with some vanilla bean. It’s amazing. I wish I could share it with y’all, it’s that good. The figs almost add a nut like quality to it, which I am all for 👌🏻 #valleyfigvalentine #myturquoisecounter #cookscountry #americastestkitchen 🍫 🍫 🍫 #feedfeed #thebakefeed #stickytoffeepudding #dates #figs #chocolate #huffposttaste #buzzfeast #buzzfeedfood #madewithkitchenaid #heresmyfood #instafood #igfood #yahoofood #nytimesfood #imsomartha #gloobyfood #foodporn #foodphotography #eeeeeats #sunmaidfigs #feedfeedchocolate #thekitchn #f52grams #kingarthurflour #vfigfeed
All the YUM’S at @disneyland today for the Get Your Ears On Celebration 😍 Mickey’s Macaron, Chocolate Peanut Butter Trifle, Red Velvet Cheesecake, Mickey Mouse Club Hat, Pineapple Lumpia, Chicken Lime Bao Bun, Spicy Vegetable Bao, and finally, the Twisted Ambush Dole Whip awesomeness 😍💗 They have raspberry and orange flavored Dole Whips now 🙌🏻 I would seriously order Every. Single. Thing. again. It was all so good! *Not pictured the Black Forest Bundt cake I got for my momma* #disneyland #disneyfood #disneyfoodblog #disneyeats #dolewhip #getyourearson #getthespicysauce
Jumping on the #bloodmoon #bloodmooneclipse bandwagon 🤣 Also, I love my new camera. That Jason stole and took awesome pics with 🤪 #rude
Going through my #myturquoisecounter feed to find an appetizer for a party and I’m pretty sure I picked a winner - the Tapenade Tarte Soleil. I also made myself REALLY hungry. I’m currently making spicy mac n cheese because the pics made me do it 🤣 @smittenkitchen posted hers a few days ago and I knew I had to make it again. It’s so stinking good and so stinking easy. I made homemade olive tapenade(because it’s literally dumping olives into a food processor) and homemade puff pastry(because it’s easier than it sounds)but I’ve used store bought and it tastes just as awesome 👌🏻 I have to say, one of the best feelings is when something comes out of the oven and tastes just as good as it looks 🙌🏻 #smittenkitchen • • #kingarthurflour #puffpastry #eeeeeats #yum #olives #huffposttaste #gloobyfood #yahoofood #foodwinewomen #f52grams #foodporn #foodphotography #buzzfeast #buzzfeedfood #feedfeed #thebakefeed #lovetobake #thekitchn #yummy #heresmyfood #madewithkitchenaid #f52bestof
When you force your family to drive to LA to go to baking Mecca’s 🤣 and since you make the drive, you might has well make it worth your time and buy all the things 😆🤪 And because I’m not a horrible parent and didn’t feed my kids straight sugar, we also got actual food at the Farmer’s Market at the Grove, which is also foodie heaven. I highly recommend 👌🏻 We tried Magee’s(amazing corned beef and ham) and Fritzi Coop(fried 🍗 🐓). So good 🙌🏻 And also, @dominiqueansel is a genius. Truly. Worth every bit of hype that follows whatever he does in his bakeries and restaurants 👌🏻 That Hot Chocolate #cronut was redonkulous - mexican chocolate ganache and cranberry jam 🤤🤤 And since we were up there, we had to hit @milkbarstore Another bakery that I drooled over that was in New York. When I found out they opened a store here, I had to get some of their goodies 👌🏻The #crackpie #compostcookie (& an assortment of their best), 3 slices of the cakes they had at the moment(chocolate malt, birthday cake, and chocolate peppermint bark), their cereal milk soft serve(Ritzy Business style), #birthdaycaketruffles , and not pictured are every #bagelbomb they had(6) I was a happy camper 🤣😍 #thegrove #dominiqueanselbakery #milkbar #milkbarla #bloominghotchocolate #frozensmore #dka #foodie #gimmeallthesweets #foodporn #yum #notthebestbloominghotchocvideobutsomeonewasstandinginfrontofme 🤣
