Salt and Pepper Roasted Cauliflower

Salt and Pepper Roasted Cauliflower

It’s been a while, internet friends!

I recently switched roles at work, so I’ve been a bit stressed out and lazy lately. I’m still here though! This is my little hobby after all 🙂

Recently, I’ve craving salt and pepper squid (a must-order at Asian restaurants) but have been too lazy to prepare squid for the first time and not in the mood to eat out. So next best thing was for me to make a cauliflower version because 1. roasted cauliflower is so versatile 2. cauliflower wings brings back the mems and 3. this was is a quick way to satiate my craving.

Yes, yes, yes they’re not white chocolate like they’re supposed to be. But, but, but I didn’t want to run to the store to pick up white chocolate chips and had brown chocolate chips on hand.

Milk Bar’s Birthday Layer Cake

Milk Bar’s Birthday Layer Cake

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!)
