Ahhhhh cupcakes. Cupcakes make me extremely happy!
I had fantastic red velvet cake last night from Stony Brook’s own California Pizza Kitchen while watching Julie and Julia. The movie was adorable and Meryl Streep is an amazing actress. The movie basically made me love cooking even more.
Julie said that “you know what I love about cooking? I love that after a day when nothing is sure and when I say nothing, I mean nothing. You can come home and absolutely know that if you add egg yolks to chocolate and sugar and milk, it will get thick. That’s such a comfort.”
This is so true! After a terrible day, there is such comfort in knowing that by following a simple recipe you can create something that just works [unless of course you are terrible cook]. I think I want to take cooking lessons one summer, to learn the art/science of cooking. Following recipes isnt really the mark of a great chef. I want to be like “I want chicken tonight”, and boom whip out this amazing, tasty, zesty and savory chicken!
The movie also made me wonder who else is reading this blog besides the friends and family that I am forcing to read this :p
