Well, here I am - on the other side of the bar exam. It was a horrible 10 weeks and I am very happy that it's over. I've spent the last 10 days lounging around. We went to Wildwood, NJ to hang with my very good friend Matt. We had an amazing time and I actually conjured up enough energy to bake a batch of chocolate chip cookies. Now, I'm getting back to my normal self. Today, Greg's friend Matt came over for dinner along with my friend Binder (who, by the way, NEVER eats my baked goods). When I asked Matt what he wanted for dinner he responded, "I am indifferent to dinner. The way I see it, dinner is just an obstacle between me and dessert."
I saw this statement as a challenge to make something awesome. I decided to bring out this insanely decadent swiss meringue caramel buttercream. I made a white cake, put homemade caramel and the caramel buttercream between the layers and then topped the whole thing with the homemade caramel. I am in a sugar coma. I think next time I'll do cupcakes and inject them with the caramel.
Oh yeah, I should also tell you about a little something I whipped up during bar study - berry cobbler. Just take a bag of frozen berries and top with a mixture of 1 stick of butter, some flour, oats, salt, and vanilla. Bake until bubbly and top with vanilla ice cream. It's my new summertime fave - delish!
I'm a young lawyer and self-proclaimed domestic goddess.
I believe in real butter and making everything from scratch.
I bake as a hobby. I find it to be an incredible way to unwind in a world of never-ending work. If you have a question, just ask! ENJOY!
