Sorry it’s been awhile, friends. Lots of changes happened so fast recently, I needed to get that all sorted out before I posted something again. Today, we’re going to shake things up a bit and not so much focus on … Continue reading
Cake… without eggs and butter. Is that even possible? Oh yes, my friends, it very much is! The other day I really wanted to make a chocolate cake for dessert that night. However, mentally running through my go-to recipes, I … Continue reading
There’s no doubt – I love shopping. Yes, clothes, shoes, home decor (I sound so old), etc. are all things I love to find. However, I am happiest in a grocery store. So the other day I was even happier … Continue reading
I love pizza. I especially love pizzas that are easy to make with ingredients already in my pantry or easily attainable at our local grocery store. I’ve been craving something light but savory, so this recipe was a perfect way … Continue reading
It’s been nearly a year since I’ve had an actual post on here. Between two senior Capstone courses, a full-time job, and papers left and right to write, I found it very difficult to find time to post during the … Continue reading
It’s been a very long time since I have posted anything here. Senior year started with a quick fury and has yet to slow down! We’re in the middle of midterm exam season, so it’s just hectic. Clever title, non? … Continue reading
We couldn’t make it out to the Harry Potter midnight premiere, but we still wanted to commemorate the end of an era. So, of course, food was involved. When I was reading the series, I was always intrigued by the … Continue reading
Tonight’s lesson: No matter how many times you’ve made or done something perfectly before… you’re probably going to screw up at some point. What exactly was I trying to make? Just a little bruschetta to go along side some grilled … Continue reading
I was planning on posting about something a little “easier,” but this is all I managed to make over a busy, hectic weekend. So here it is… I don’t go to California Pizza Kitchen often, but when I do (like … Continue reading
Hmm… where to start?
So, I may or may not have been putting this off for a while. At the urging of several friends (special shout out to Melyssa ;] ) to start one up – here it is! I know what you’re thinking – procrastination. I may have a tiny problem with it, but looky here! My first entry! ’Tis a big step, my dear friends!
Now, first, let me make this clear from the start – I am not always the best at writing in super grammar school/collegiate essay mode. If you choose to read my blog – which really, I totally get if you’d much rather douse yourself in gasoline and light yourself on fire – you might notice that I tend to use a ton of dashes, dotdotdots (Anyone have the desire to sing “Honey, Honey” from Mamma Mia? …Anyone?), incomplete sentences, and probably a ton of misused LOL’s. If you don’t like it, well, you can just suuu… embrace it ;] Not like it’ll be a problem with my three devoted readers, but hey, that fourth person just might come out and join the party someday. And if they happen to take offense to this lack of grammar finesse? I can just lovingly send them to this glorious first entry. Seriously. Don’t mess with me, bro. Rude.
Secondly, some of you might be thinking “WTF is Carmelicioso?” No, I am not completely self-absorbed, but this blog is about me, yes? Lol. Honestly, “Carmelicious” was already taken. How many freakin’ Carmels do you know? What’s even crazier, is that the site’s title is “A Marketing Chick Diary” and has nothing else but a template post. I’m a chick. I’m into marketing/PR. And now, I’m writing. Crazy coincidence, if you ask me. Of course, I digress… back to the name. I’ve noticed that a lot of kiddos my age are at a loss when it comes to the kitchen. Darlings, you don’t have to be eating Easy Mac or Ramen everyday! By no means am I an accomplished Le Cordon Bleu culinary pro, but I do whip up some super easy dishes (muy delicioso! if I do say so myself) that are great for anyone pressed for time or just starting to venture past the microwave.
That cooking bit was a huge reason I thought I’d start writing, but there’ll definitely be posts about other things that makes my life oh so delicioso! Ehh? Get it?! Carmel + my oh so delicioso life/dishes = Carmelicioso! Cheesy? Maybe. Deal with it. You’ll be on your knees, begging for more before you know it.
I must warn you – my thought process whirls round and round, a million miles a minute. So if it ever seems like I’m jumping back and forth between one thing and the next… I probably need some Ritalin (or a drink) to slow things down. (For those of you snickering at that drink bit… shush. What the other readers don’t know (Hi, Mom!) won’t hurt them.)
So there you have it, a taste of what is to come - Carmelicioso.
It’s okay if you want to run. Run far, far away…
