Strawberry Cheesecake Bites


Hooray! Another video post!!

Once again- this is NOT my recipe. Maybe one day I’ll concoct my own recipes for the videos, but at the moment I’m having a ton of fun making other people’s recipes for these videos so that’s what I’m sticking with for now.

This is one I’ve seen a billion and a half times on Pinterest. They looked so easy and I loved the clever factor, plus y’all know by now how much I love stuffing food things in other food things. Clearly this was a winner in my book.

I used this recipe from Nutmeg Nanny. You should stop by and check out the rest of her recipes, because they all look fantastic.

Hope you enjoy!

Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pie


Welcome to the very first video post!!!

This was something my boyfriend had been pushing me to do for a while but I was hesitant because I’m not entirely too eager to see and/or hear myself talk on video. Hearing one’s own voice on recording is always traumatizing and I wanted to spare my poor readers from that sure-to-be-horror.

You’re welcome, by the way.

But, he convinced me we could do it in a way where the most anyone would see are my slightly frightening hands.

So we took one of our favorite recipes, and decided to shoot it! And I totally fell in love with it, so don’t fret, this will not be the last of the video recipe!

Just to clarify- this is not my recipe. This is the recipe from Steve Tarpin, the owner of Steve’s Authentic Key Lime Pies, a shop found in Red Hook, Brooklyn.

ALSO: Since the eggs in the recipe are never cooked, make sure to buy pasteurized eggs. You can also pasteurize your own eggs, google will show you the way on that one.
