I’m in the process of decorating my living room and wanted a garland of some sort to hang over my tapestry to add some texture to the space. After some snooping around the Internet, I decided to make my own tassel garland with yarn.
First thing’s first: I love Milk Bar and Christina Tosi. The last time I went to New York City, I was there for three days and went to Milk Bar five times. I own the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook, spazzed out when Christina joined MasterChef, and went to the Twist pop-up in town.
My boyfriend’s birthday was last week, and I decided to finally redeem myself from the first time I attempted to make this cake (it sucked) and try to make my favorite birthday cake for a second time. BOYYYYYYYYYY, I think I came pretty close. (Keep reading to see how I made it!)
Throughout grade school, I loved using an agenda. I lived for using colored pins to color code my classes and moving that flimsy plastic bookmark ruler between pages every week. In college, I used Moleskines and loved my highlighting system to keep track of exams, club events, and personal life. My agenda was my baby, and when I graduated, I relied — miraculously enough — on my memory until there were too many things happening to keep track of.
I’m running out of food in the fridge and had enough leftovers from the week to put together some fried rice for a couple of days. I feel like I don’t need to tell you about fried rice, but I will tell you, “I told you so” re: having the ability to make more than muffins (read about my muffin adventures here and here).
