Homemade Creations En Octubre

1) For the first time I made my first set of sushi rolls!  I didn't have fish so I used the next best foods - meatless hot dogs and eggs.  Instead of dipping a piece of sushi into just soy sauce, ketchup also gave it a nice finishing touch:

2) I looovvve the cupcakes my younger cousin/goddaughter makes.  She's so great and creative at making desserts... I hope she sticks with this hobby!:

3) Lastly here's the Haunted Chocolate Cake my friend made for our class.  This chocolate cake is haunted with a lot of chocolate bars!  As much as a chocolate lover I am, I had to control the amount of chocolate cake I was eating because I don't want any more cavities (darn!):

Bread & Butter

My friends had invited my fiancé and I to try a new restaurant, Bread & Butter for breakfast.  I wanted to go, but I declined because I had to finish up on some studying.  Later on in the day, my fiancé asked if I wanted to go to Bread & Butter for dinner because our friends were going back there to eat!  Well I was convinced to go during my 'study break' since my friends were hardcore enough to go to Bread & Butter twice in one day.

We were all greeted by the owner Chris who told us to make ourselves at home.  He also told us that the foods here are made from scratch and the restaurant menu is not the same every day, so he likes to get feedback from his customers on the Bread & Butter's Facebook fan page to get ideas on what to make for future days/weeks... What a great concept!

We came on a 'customize your own grilled cheese sandwich' night.  The small menu had a variety of breads, cheeses, vegetables, and some meats to choose from.  I chose all…

Vegan Catered Wedding Reception

For my lovely friends' wedding reception, the bride ordered all vegan catered food from Pura Vida Bakery & Bystro by Chef Mayra and had customized drinks from their reception venue, Artiface Urban Lounge.

Happy Hour @ Settebello Pizzeria Napoletana

After an intense week of schooling, I've been going to Settebello for Happy Hour.  I feel like I deserve to eat a delizioso pizza, appetizer, and dessert for all the studying I've been doing!
