Back in ye olde days (like, April) when quarantine was a cute little idea and we had no concept of just how long we would go without human contact other than Zoom meetings I, along with millions of others, hopped on the sourdough starter train. I had mixed results and gave up for awhile, but recently got back into it. Again, mixed results.
|Disaster. Loaf pan for context - these were literally like bricks|
|Much better, but still some tweaking to do.|
In the meantime, I decided I wanted to make cinnamon rolls. I used this recipe and I used maple extract in the frosting. OMG, these were delicious and I'll definitely make them again.
|I used my mom's rolling pin, which I'm sure helped.|
I texted the bottom right picture to Aaron (who was all the way upstairs)
and said "who the fuck am I?" I think he wondered the same thing.
On the non-food front, if you follow me on Instagram you may have seen that I'm now a consultant (or Beauty Guide) for LimeLife, which is a skincare and makeup company. I'm pretty excited about this, as I've used the products for a few years and I absolutely love them. You may wonder "why the hell would you get started in this during a pandemic?" Well, I'll tell you. A couple weeks ago I was organizing the bathroom drawer (yet another coronavirus cliche) and was forced to come face to face with all the products I have. And I decided that I don't need a reason to put on makeup. Because dammit, it makes me feel good. And if I'm being completely honest, my skincare routine had taken a nosedive and I find that I'm much more diligent about washing my face at night if I have makeup that needs to be removed. Hey, whatever works. So, if you're looking for new skincare or a mascara or a lipstick or all of the above, let me know! You can check it out here and feel free to reach out to me with any questions.
