Welcome to my WordPress blog, everyone! I decided to move from blogger because I wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted this blog to be, considering it fell horribly by the wayside a few months ago due to school work and other aspects of life that keep one busy (extracurriculars, a relationship, friendships, etc.). But I’m back and ready to start again. Now that finals are over, summer is in full swing, and I finally worked out time management with my current internship, I can fully commit to making food and blogging about it (not that I usually don’t make food; I just usually throw things together and hope the dish is not gross). This first entry is about one of the best things made during my spring break: gluten-free cinnamon pork buns.
My wonderful boyfriend, Matt, follows Foodbeast which I’m sure most foodies have heard of. If not, it is a collection of any food-related news, be it fast food product announcements or innovative recipes. That’s how we stumbled upon this gem: pulled pork cinnamon buns. Of course, that was just the inspiration. Due to my gluten-free lifestyle, I had to tweak the recipe a little bit. So I used Chebe cinnamon roll mix.
I live by this mix; it’s so easy to use and you need only one or two more ingredients to make it work. But now you’re wondering: where did we get the pork from? Given the fact that Matt and I wanted to most epic stay-cation ever, we roasted a pork shoulder a few days earlier. It really smoked up the apartment because of diminished quality of our oven, but the pork still came out delicious and the meat fell right apart as we tried to cut into it to portion it out. So, then we decided to make another relatively easy pork recipe and cinnamon rolls are delicious; our pork was delicious; why not combine the two?

In true professional form (sarcasm), I somehow forgot to take pictures of our buns! That is so unfortunate! I will definitely do a take-two on this post and include a picture of the delicious buns. I make them a lot of the time now, especially since pulled pork is the kind of meal you can make over the weekend to have super easy dinner and lunch options throughout the week.
During Spring break, comfort was the name of the game. I am most comfortable in hats and scarves, and this outfit depicts that expertly.
I am so sorry about a botched first entry. I promise the next one will include more thorough pictures of food, the process of making the food, and a full-body outfit picture.
Keep it delicious,
Next week: Look forward to some delicious Fourth of July drinks and shooters.
