When I go to sleep at night I think about what I’m going to eat for breakfast the next day, and when I wake up in the morning I think about what I’m going to eat for dinner.

Makes sense that when a new year stars I think about all the things I want to eat throughout it.

1.) Baby Beef Wellingtons – We haven’t had these since Valentines day 2014, which I think is a crying shame.

2.) Caramelized Onion and Gorgonzola Cups – I didn’t have these at all in 2015 and I feel like I’m going through some serious withdrawals.

3.) Irish Chocolate Mousse Cake – I’ve been going through a funk and I think this cake is needed the most urgently for some serious soul healing.

4.) Bread! – Seriously, I can’t let my bread-maker being broken stop me from making bread this year. Especially with recipes like these delicious French Baguettes, or these amazing Bread Bowls

Brie is a fair-weather foodie. She wouldn’t go as far as to say she has a love/hate relationship with food, because she loves food and food clearly loves her; it loves her so much that it holds on as tight as it can and never lets go; mostly in the middle region. Her cooking style involves a lot of butter or garlic or onions, things that have “creamy” or “cheesy” in the title, also anything that you could add bacon to. She’s been making the noms since she was tall enough to reach the counter, and has been eating for even longer*. Brie’s passion for cooking-slash-baking will fluctuate however, usually correlating with how sick she is of doing dishes. Never-the-less, her passion for eating (sushi, take out Chinese, hole in the wall diner-y type foods) is as constant as the sun, the moon, death, and taxes. She also sometimes talks in the third person; don’t worry, you’ll get used to it.
*Fun Fact: When she was 10-13ish, only 1 out of every 5 batches of sugar cookie dough would make it past the butter/sugar stage and end up in the oven instead of Brie’s stomach. #ThisIsWhyI’mFat
P.S. She also set the microwave on fire during the same era while making home-made microwavable popcorn. Pro tip: Alton Brown is WRONG and you cannot put a paper bag with staples into the microwave; things will go badly.
P.P.S Happy ending. Even though to put out the fire she threw a bowl of water onto it and shorted all the circuits, the microwave started working after a week and her mom was non-the-wiser.
P.P.P.S But, I guess not any longer…
