Coffee Bundt Cake

Coffee Bundt Cake Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

Although all evidence may point to the contrary, I haven’t only had cupcakes on the mind lately. A few weeks ago, I decided that a Bundt cake needed to happen. Basically, I wanted a dessert that I didn’t feel guilty about eating for breakfast and since Bundt cakes are occasionally served at brunch, I rolled […]

Mexican Hot Chocolate Cookies - Cashmere & Cocktails

Among the many 2020 goals I’ve set for myself, the top on my list is balance – more specifically dietary. I tend to be an all-or-nothing person. When I want something, I dive in head first and when I don’t, crickets. This has applied to many facets of my life but has been most noticeable […]

Dark Chocolate Cupcakes

Dark Chocolate Cupcake Recipe - Cashmere & Cocktails

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 […]

Creamy Roasted Tomato Soup by Cashmere & Cocktails

Have you ever tried to simultaneously dress three children for -30° weather? No? Then let me paint you a picture of what it’s like, amigos: Fight with them to put on their winter gear because being bundled to the point that one can barely move sucks.

Caprese Flatbread

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

Confession; when the gluten-free diet first hit, I thought it was a heaping pile of manure. I knew zero about it other than the fact that gluten-free bread was five times pricier than regular bread and that everyone and their grand-mother was suddenly requesting gluten-free dining options. I thought it was fake. I thought it […]
