The theme this week at I Heart Faces is dessert photos. And let me just confess something: Adam and Courtney and I spent a good 5 or 40 minutes scouring the entries for something delicious to satisfy our sweet tooth last night. Luckily, we found the perfect thing: chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes. Umm, yes please and thank-you. And they did not disappoint; however, one cupcakes smothered in icing was enough to fill my stomach and maybe put me into a slight sugar coma. Here's the recipe if you want to try them yourself. Trust me, you won't be sorry you did.
And see? I told Adam that I Heart Faces is the most helpful website ever. Perhaps now he'll believe me, since they satisfied his insatiable need for chocolate. Seriously, that boy has a worse sweet tooth than me. One time, he did the "brownie diet." But that's another story for another post.
Since I don't usually take pictures of my culinary creations (because they turn out, more often than not, less than pretty), my entry this week is a picture I took of something my sister made. My youngest sister, Emma (not the one getting married), went to the French Pastry School in Chicago last year. She's amazing, and every time she's home I somehow find my way over there in hopes that she is making something delicious.
I mean just look at these homemade, from scratch, cream puffs. Hello perfection. She made these for a baby shower I threw, and I may have eaten a few (5 is a few right?) while I was stuck in traffic on my way to the shower. What? I needed sustenance.
