Reintro To Blogging

I have all the excuses in the world: a trip with way too much packing/unpacking/laundry, sleepless nights while sleep training a 3 month old, a death in the family, endless visitors (everybody loves babies- who can blame them?), birthday parties, and hosting an Easter brunch. It is because of all of these, and just plain old laziness, that I haven't thought much about posting to this blog. I've been so unmotivated that I haven't really cooked- anything. I actually bought a box of frozen "gourmet" cookie dough and have been eating the dough, ball by ball, because I've been too tired to put the oven on and pay attention to baking time. So, with this post and the beginning of May, I hope to start blogging anew. While I get my kitchen in order (and try to figure out this new ridiculous format Blogger has mandatorily upgraded me to while I wasn't paying attention), below are a few of the food happenings from the previous weeks.

The unbelievably delicious dessert from the Home Chefs Of Vail- Chocolate & Peanut Butter - Skippy Semi-Fredo, Dark Chocolate Ganache, Carmelized Graham Cracker "Pop" Crumble 

Empire Cake's (previously Lulu Cake Boutique, but renamed as it is no longer affiliated with the Scarsdale bakery) St. Patty's Day chocolate cupcake with Guinness pastry cream
The bass from an impromptu lunch with a buddy at Gramercy Tavern
In celebration of National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day- 'wichcraft's chunky pb&j- a triple decker sandwich made with greenmarket preserves, chunky peanut butter and pullman white bread
One of the Easter baskets I put together for our guests
