Thank you for joining me at my new blog, Confections of a Food Bitch! I’m really excited to unveil this new endeavor of mine… For along time, I’ve felt that Run Sleep Rinse Repeat wasn’t quite *me*. But now? I feel like this blog encompasses who I am at the core. Yeah, I like green monsters, but I also like sugar. And carbs. And judge all you want, but I eat some processed foods. So I invite you to read on & yes, I’ve kept some of my favorite recipes from the past year. Enjoy!
I decided that I needed to throw a babyshower when Ashlee told me that she was scared she’d get nothing but purple stuff for her baby, Violet. I love pink (shocking). I love Ashlee. I love entertaining. It was a pretty natural process.
On a Saturday in June, almost a dozen of us gathered to celebrate Ashlee & Violet.
On the menu was brie & field greens on croissants (with black cherry preserves on the side) & broccoli & goat cheese quiche:
Fruit skewers, Cheddar Puffs & Punch (yup, that’s a decanter of champagne you spy):
& a pink layer cake:
My favorite part of everything was by far the cake. I was originally inspired by a photo I found on Pinterest a few months ago. I made the cake by starting with a vanilla cake. The first layer is plain & with every layer, I gradually added more food coloring. Perfect for a PINK baby shower!
