Fashion month is upon us so I decided to try and recreate a few of the looks with pieces already in my closet. This one didn't come out quite as good as I was imagining in my head, and I had to use my mom's brown coat, but it's not horrible, ha ha. All you need is a burgundy sweater/turtleneck, a grey layer on top and long coat. Then throw on some cropped jeans and black slides and you've recreated this look by Veronica Beard.

 Who doesn't love a fun statement coat. This vintage suede jacket is just that! The fun western detailing makes it such a unique piece. I'm always a little bit sad when we have a huge snowstorm because it means I can't wear any of my regular shoes and need to resort to rain and snow boots. But then I remembered these boots have soles that I won't slip in while walking on ice and slush!

Happy Friday! Another outfit from before last week's blizzard. I wore this when my parents and I went to go check out my aunt's new spa - Balancing Bodies Spa in Rocky Hill, CT. So go get a massage from her if you're in the area! She's been in the biz for over 20 years.

After that we headed to my Grandma's for the Super Bowl. I was almost a little too warm in this outfit, even without a coat. Then, of course, we were hit with 12 inches of snow. Stupid winter!

I'm a bit light on outfit posts thanks to the recent snowstorms so I thought I would re-share this recipe I first posted back in 2012. This has been one of my favorite desserts for as long as I can remember. It's simple, quick and the perfect portion. I've introduced it to quite a few friends over the years and I even brought my own ramekins when I visited a friend in DC so we could make them. As I'm sure you've seen on my Instagram, I make them quite often!



Ingredients

  • 1 stick unsalted butter (I'm lazy and use salted and it tastes just fine)
  • 4 ounces semisweet chocolate, with 60 percent cocoa solids
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup superfine sugar (again, I'm lazy so I use regular sugar)
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • Special equipment: 4 (2/3 to 1-cup capacity) ramekins
Directions
  1. Place a baking sheet in the oven and preheat to 400 degrees F.
  2. Butter the ramekins (not from the full stick) or use non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Melt the dark chocolate and 1 stick butter together, then set aside to cool a little.
  4. Mix the eggs with the sugar and flour with a hand whisk and beat in the cooled butter/chocolate mixture. 
  5. Divide the mixture between the 4 buttered ramekins. 
  6. Bake for 20 minutes, by which time the tops will be cooked and cracked and the chocolate gooey underneath.
  7. Let cool and enjoy!!! :D

If I had a date for Valentine's Day I imagine I would wear something like this. Cozy, but still showing a bit of skin. I don't really have much red in my closet so burgundy will have to do. I hope everyone who has someone to celebrate with enjoys their plans! I will be watching a Good Eats chocolate marathon on the Cooking Channel. WOO!
