My heart in the kitchen

I don't know where I would be if I didn't love to cook and bake . 
My husband is my "quality controler"as he named himself to be hah. 
Most of the time half of what I bake I send him to work with and his co workers love it . 
At least I hope/think they do . Haven't had any complaints yet. 

What would I be eating if this wasn't what I enjoyed doing ?? Frozen dinners and take out ??
  oyi! I can't imagine . 

Here are a few of my favorite things I have done in the itty bitty kitchen of mine .
If any of these look awesome enough and you would like to try I will do my best to give you where I got the recipe from . I don't always cook or bake from the same book I like to try new things and sometimes ill find the recipes online. 

My idol I'm sure she is to many is Julia Child . So of course I have the Mastering the Art of French Cooking in my collection . 

Broiled Flank Steak w/Tomato-Scallion Relish W/Potato Cake

Chocolate Soufflet 

 Cream Puff dipped in colocate ganache

Homemade  Peppermint Ice Cream

BrĂ»leed  Pumpkin Cheesecake


Red sparkle

So I came across a blog with this awesome red sparkle polish and had to have it! 

It can be hard to just go off of a photo or just looking at the bottle of polish to know you are going to love it till you see it on your own nails. Some time you can end up not liking it and wasting your money. 

But this was not the case for me . . . after having my husband try to track it down at one of his jobs and no luck I went on one of my lunch breaks to Walgreens where they had ONE left ! 

This awesome red is by Milani 

added some white dots and tada =)
i think i may go back and add a swipe of silver glitter along the smile line . 

Hey fellow nail fanatics !

I have always been a lover of doing my nails , why pay when you can do it the way you want it, when you want it and how you want it. Don't get me wrong its always nice every now and again having someone do it isn't bad. But it wasn't till recently in the last month or so iv been trying to practice giving myself acrylic sets . Practice makes perfect right ? =)

So I was scanning youtube for some help as im sure everyone has to learn how to do thing. 

I came across a channel for the user 

who has some great tutorials . There is one for how she has her storage set up for all her nail powders , brushes ect .... 

I saw the way she was storing some of her powders and thought thats a cool way to store the acrylic mixed and glitters . But I was unable to locate these pressure jars at the Dollar Tree near me . So I have been on the hunt for them , bc with the screw tops I have noticed you tend to loose more of the product. 

So one day I was at Joann's looking for something else for a craft project and guess what I found after many trips to different stores. !?!? It always seems to come out to when you are looking for something you can't find it but when your not you see them everywhere! hahah 

These jars came out to be about 5 bucks I think . But if you bring in the 40%-50% off coupon with you that is an even better buy !. I found these in the paint area where the paint brushed , acrylic paint are.

I hope those that are looking for these can find them. Im sure Michaels carries them too . 

Have a great day !
