I am awesome, 
So the wonderful pretty state of Puebla (where this delicious Mexican Chillies were first created...) has stated that the Chiles en Nogada season is officially back. YAY! 
And I just had to give a go at this delicious teat another time. 
Practice makes perfect and having cooked for over a year... let's just say that my time 
has been greatly invested n.n 

I made the Nogada my way this time n.n And had loads of fun experimenting in the lab --otherwise called the kitchen, with yummy ingredients I thought would work out with the sauce. 
I made the stuffing with little variations of the original I made last year and it all turned out all right. 
The only thing that might've changed was that I didn't clean the Chilies really well this time, 
so they were slightly hot.
But they were delicious, absolutely delicious! 

These were a joy to eat!

Cupcake Time!

So this is my attempt on Red Velvets. They do not look red BUT they do taste delicious. They don't look red because I didn't use as much food colourant as I should have. But I am just afraid I'll run out of the pretty colours... how ridiculous am I? 
Hey! Woah-woah-woah!
That was a rhetorical question guys... geez...

Yummy is an understatement, these little cupcakes were sublime! 
Not exactly chocolate but not vanilla either. And that sweet buttermilk taste... and the cream cheese frosting! Oh my! I'm gonna go and grab one now.

**sigh** So what? Right?!

"So What" from Pink has to be the anthem for all of us brokenhearted girls. Nice to get it out like that. Sorry if I have shocked you with such straightforwardness. 
 Last Monday my chest was cut opened and my heart ripped out, then thrown on the floor and stumped on. I think he even spit on it a bit. 

Remember that awesome boyfriend I so often post about? Hell the post bellow this one is a clear example of all the love I feel for him. I often brag about how amazing and blah-blah-blah he was to me and silly little things like that. And... I am not trying to romantize my previous relationship or anything, but it was. He was sweet and awesome and stuff... until he broke up with me. 
In a most gentleman-ish way ¬ ¬
I gave him three years of my life, almost four, and what I got in return was an untitled notepad document that consisted in almost four lines in which at least two and a half were made out of never-ending ellipsis...
Talk about true love, right? 
Anyway. Let's not get all sad and angry on my account. You came because of the awesome pasta picture on the top and so I introduce to you: 

The Spinach Wonder. 

Fettuccine seasoned with a lil' bit of garlic, white wine, honey mustard and nice mushy spinach. With a little salt and pepper and cheese
