Dark Chocolate Cupcakes

Fun fact: I use to bake cupcakes as a side hustle. It feels like forever and a day, but there was a time when I baked upwards to 2000 cupcakes a week for a local market. Customers would show up before I arrived, a line would form from my booth all the way out the […]

Winter is upon us, amigos. I woke up yesterday to the white crap falling from the sky and felt my soul cry a little. In my part of the world, we have two and a half seasons; four months of summer, one too-short month of fall, followed by seven months of winter. I don’t even […]

Caprese Flatebread - Cashmere & Cocktails

Now and then I open the refrigerator, see that we’re out of leftovers and think to myself shit. Leftovers are my go-to when I’m home alone for a meal. It’s not that I don’t enjoy cooking, I just hate going through all the trouble for one. In times like these, I often lazily throw together […]

Flourless Chocolate Cake

Flourless Gluten Free Chocolate Cake Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails
