If you’re reading this blog for the first time today (and hello to you!) then you might not know but tomorrow, July 13, is my birthday. I. love. my. birthday. It’s smack dab in the middle of summer so childhood birthdays included big family parties in the backyard, the weather is warm so I can always wear a cute dress to any type of celebration, and it’s a full day where I’m bombarded by texts and phone calls and Hallmark cards from all the people in my life that I love. Seriously, what’s better than that?!
This year The BF is taking me to Red Rooster Harlem for dinner (one of my top 5 favorite restaurants in NY) and I’ll spend the rest of the day eating pancakes and avoiding the rain. Perfection? That it is.
Here are a few links for your weekend! Enjoy!
I’m baking this recipe for my birthday cupcakes! FACT: Rainbow chip and funfetti are NOT the same.
“What’s in Prince’s fridge?” (yes, THAT Prince!) is perhaps the funniest and weirdest thing I’ve read in a long time.
My mom made this incredible white cake with lemon frosting and raspberry filling last weekend when I was home in Rochester and it was DIVINE.
Speaking of Rochester, Donuts Delite in Irondequoit has a cannoli donut… yes… a CANNOLI DONUT… that is essentially heaven in pastry form (or a powdered sugar yeast donut with cannoli cream filling). Why they don’t have a line like the cronut, I’ll never know.
And a final reminder to sign up for Spice to Meet You. Next month’s spice is a total winner.
