{air fryer bbq salmon}

I have to be honest – I haven’t LOVED being in the kitchen lately. It used to be my thang!

A big glass of wine, music playing, cooking away in the kitchen. Kinda my way of winding down at the end of the day. I guess it ebbs and flows? Maybe I’m more of a summery kitchen lover? We’ll see….fingers crossed for my peeps. Ha!

Anyway, I saw TheBuyGuide on instagram do an air fryer salmon the other day. And the finished product looked so damn good. I had to try it out. Obvi putting my spin on it. Tried it out last night. Annndddd…

{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!

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!
