Pom Wonderful Pom Pom Review and coupon

Pom Pom Fresh Arils

I had the pleasure of reviewing this new item from Pom , I was already a fan of their juice it makes a tasty drink when mixed with champagne lol

I really liked these they were tasty and fresh and if you have ever ate a fresh pomegranate you know that's it really messy. This was quick and easy and also comes with a little spoon so you can eat it on the go. Overall i would recommend this to anyone who likes pomegranate and you can all try them to there is a $1 off coupon found here.

Sprinkles NYC

The first cupcake place I ever tried was sprinkles in California, since then they had always remained my favorite cupcake place. When i heard they opened up in NYC I was like finally lol , Monday my mom, her friend,and I headed over for a little trip we went to Laduree to get the new winter boxes they had and pick up some macarons and then over to sprinkles. I forgot to take a picture of the actual place but it was rather small inside. They did however have a decent selection. I got cinnamon sugar, vanilla/vanilla,vanilla/ chocolate,coconut,and a doggy cupcake for my mom's friends dog who i love lol.

Here is the lucky recipient of the doggy cupcake

So here is my opinion of the cupcakes, My favorite were the coconut and the cinnamon sugar. Although the coconut had an artificial taste to the icing i wasn't fond of and the cupcakes were almost non edible the next day they were really dry. Most cupcakes that i have tried have normally stayed moist for about 2 days. All in all I need to go back on a day when they have the peanut butter cup that was my favorite when i had first tried them. I'm not saying they were bad I'm just a little disappointed.

New Years Resolutions

I haven't made any New Years resolutions in awhile but i think it is time to do so and to also follow through. So here is what ill be working on this coming year of 2012.

1. Save more money, meaning try and budget more with my business and be able to put more money away which goes along with #2

2. Be able to move out to Michigan by next year or the following year this is depending on if i can find a steady job at a bakery or get more local clients.

3. Blog more and be more interactive on my blog, i really do love my blog and my readers and i would love to be able to offer you more like diy,more recipes,and also add some crafts in as well.

4. Lose weight now i know this is a common one but i need to lose a few more pounds this year and also make more time to work out .

That's all i can really think about at the moment but i think i covered the important ones. Feel free to link me to any of your posts about your resolutions or comment and let me know I'd love to hear them

Vera Wangs Black and Nude Bridal Collection

Ever since i was a young girl sitting around drawing dresses and clothes I had always planned on designing my own wedding dress. It would be a black corset and big black and white striped skirt (something like out of sleepy hollow) with lots of pull ups and bows lol. Once i got older i did a 360 thinking a classic completely lace dress vintage chic and elegant. But there was always that dark side of me saying wouldn't a black lace dress be more fabulous!! lol

Then came Vera Wang!!! I have always loved her and then a few weeks back when i saw the 2012 black and nude wedding dress collection . The angels sang and I was like finally i could have both my loves together lol . Okay enough ranting check out these dresses there are more to find online but these were my favorite.

This top one is officially my dream dress, i would wear it everyday lol

Rhubarb Pie Recipe

First off let me say i would save this recipe for spring lol apparently rhubarb is out of season. I had to call around to 6 speciality grocery stores to find some . My moms dear friend wanted to get rhubarb pie for his boyfriends birthday and the only bakery he could find that had it wanted $125 to ship seriously $125??? So i was on a mission to find a make this pie for him.

Rhubarb Pie Recipe

Premade pie crust with 2 sheets

5 cups of rhubarb chopped (cut ends off)

1 cup of sugar

2 tablespoons of corn starch

pinch of salt

1/2 tablespoon of orange zest

1/4 teaspoon of cardamon

1 egg

Preheat oven to 400 degrees

Line pie pan with first sheet of dough use a fork to make holes in the bottom

In a large bowl mix rhubarb,sugar,salt,corn starch,orange zest,cardamon

Mix very well

add mixture to pie pan spread evenly

I used my mini leaf cutter to cut out some holes in the top

in a small bowl mix one hole egg to use as a egg wash

use your fork to make pretty edges and egg wash to seal the pie top

brush egg wash over the entire pie

Place pie on a baking sheet and place in the lowest rack on the oven

use tin foil on the edges of the pie to prevent from burning

Bake for 1 hour 30 mins

let sit and cool before serving
