{bunny ear cake}

Easter Sunday is this weekend. More importantly, Good Friday! Ha! I can FINALLY drink booze again! So watch out, mama’s getting buzzed. With a couple little hiccups in the last 46 days. Keep’n it real, the struggle is real.

Since I have so much extra time on my hands, I made the sweetest Easter cake for dessert last weekend. We had my 95 year old grandmother + her caregiver, Eda and my parents over for dinner after Palm Sunday service. And I served this sweet cake.

It’s semi-homemade. Semi-naked. Bunny ear cake!

{tiktok baked feta pasta}

The pasta that went viral. I’m sure you’ve all seen it by now, right? Baked feta pasta. It’s a low effort recipe for pasta with tomatoes and cheese…I mean, what’s not to love, right?

But, you know I couldn’t follow the Gen Z way of making it. According to these punks – side parts + skinny jeans are old. Ha! So, I had to put my own little xoxo stacyb spin on the recipe that EVERYONE is making + loving!

{slow cooker queso}

I legit debated for at least 30 minutes now about whether or not I should be sharing this recipe today.

Here’s the deal – It’s not that this queso is not delicious – because let’s keep it really real. It is DELICIOUS!!! It’s just that I have been trying really hard to clean up my act, food-wise.

And now that I’ve edited photos + thought about it, I accidentally added all the items to my target drive-up order. FML!

I went back and forth on this issue for waaay to long, but then I decided you all need a little queso in your lives too! Ha!

It’s just the right thing to do.
