I’ve got a full weekend of making lovey birthday faces at my husband coming up. Plans mostly include beach time and ingesting obscenely large amounts of french toast. So I guess just a normal weekend then…

Breakfast in Bed

Posted in Food Files, Inspiration by Miss Pomp on April 24, 2013

Husbands birthday is coming up this weekend, and it’s got me thinking about romantic breakfasts for two.

Breakfast in bed is one of those things that seems really romantic, but doesn’t actually happen all that often in real life. For starters, if you get up to make breakfast, it sort of ruins the whole “spend the morning in bed having delicious breakfast and lounging” especially if said breakfast takes an hour to make. Once you’ve been up for an hour, you’re up and that’s that, there’s no going back.

So the other day I experimented to see if I could find a quick, simple and delicious recipe that’s perfect for wanting to hop right back in the sack for a lazy morning. Here’s what I came up with…

Miniature German Pancakes

Yields 3 little guys

  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat the oven to 400°

Using a muffin tin (not a cupcake tin), split the butter into three of the muffin holes and place in the oven for the butter to melt while you make your batter
In a blender, combine the eggs, milk, flour and salt
Once the butter is melted, pour the batter into the three buttered muffin tins, and bake at 400° for approximately 7 minutes.
Remove from pan and sprinkle with powdered sugar (and by sprinkle, I mean sprinkle a LOT)
Serve on a cute tray with some delicious OJ and a side of fruit!

Husbands, do this for your wives, it will make them want to make out with you.

You’re welcome.

This Weeks Adventures- Mara Mi, Weels (not that kind), and Sunnies

Posted in Decor Files, Fashion Files by Miss Circumstance on April 12, 2013

Here’s some snap shots of this weeks comings and goings-

Anthropologie Canary Grade WeelsHow sweet are those? Apparently they are called “Weels”, wedge + heel= weels. It’s celebrity mash-up name. They can be yours from Anthropologie.

These Rounded Horn Sunglasses I also had hoped would come home with me, but alas something had to go back-

Anthropologie Rounded Horn SunglassesMaybe I can live through you. You can buy them here.

Then I was at Target, and in this weird little off to the side section by the stationary I found the motha-load. I had never even heard of this company (that probably makes me an ignoramus….have you heard of them??) called Mara Mi. They had so much cute stuff! Strangely I couldn’t find ANY of these things online, but here are some crummy Iphone shots-

Mara Mi for TargetCheck out those cool pens on the bottom right! And that blue and white cosmetics bag. And the cell phone cover. And the grey and white tote bag.

IMG_0500Those candles smell sooooo good. And those notebooks beautiful. If I wrote stuff I’d write it in there.

Mara Mi Wooden Tape DispenserI suddenly have a great need for a wooden tape dispenser and cute tapes in my life.

Grapefruit Sorbet

Posted in Food Files, Inspiration by Miss Pomp on April 11, 2013

 

As the temperatures rise, a sweet cool treat is just what the doctor ordered. Yesterday, the temperature climbed to around 80, and I decided it was the perfect day to try my hand at sorbet.

After bouncing around the internet and pulling ideas from a few different recipes, here’s what I came up with:

  • 3 cups freshly squeezed grapefruit juice (for me it took about 4 red grapefruits)
  • 2/3 cups sugar
  • 1 tablespoon grapefruit zest

IMG_1167

In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, zest, and 1/2 cup grapefruit juice and simmer over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the sugar is completely dissolved.

Stir in the remainder of the grapefruit juice and set aside until room temperature. Place the saucepan in the refrigerator and cool completely. Once cool, pour the mixture into an ice cream/frozen yogurt/sorbet maker and follow the manufacturers instructions.

I allowed my sorbet to freeze overnight after being processed in the ice cream maker and this morning the texture was absolutely perfect, and the sorbet delicious!

Give my recipe a try and let me know what you think!

I hope you love it as much as I do!
