Hey friends! It’s finally Friday! It’s finally summer! It’s warm outside, the birds are chirping, I’m listening to some happy music, and I’m baking up a (chocolatey) storm… there’s a lot to celebrate today!
Let’s start with the baking I’m doing. My friend and I are having our grad party tomorrow, and we decided to make all of our own food for the party (we’re quite ambitious that way). I’m baking multiple types of cupcakes and cookies, and I’m making 50-100 of each type. Let’s start with the cookies. They are probably the best chocolate chip cookies you’ll ever eat in your entire life. For that reason they are #1 on my fab 5 list!
Chloe, a.k.a. my vegan baking inspiration, has created fabulousness again with these cookies. I’ve made them more times than I can count. They’re so dang delicious! The best chocolate chip cookies ever (besides these ones). MAKE THEM. Seriously. Or come to our grad party tomorrow to get some. 😉
2. Chlostess Cupcakes from Chloe’s Kitchen, also by Chloe Coscarelli
If you haven’t already guessed, I kind of love Chloe and her recipes. These are the cupcakes my mom and I have been making for the party. Chocolate cupcakes filled with a vanilla crème and topped with a chocolate ganache and vanilla crème loops. I’ve also made these more times than I can count, and I highly suggest that you make them!
3. “Find Out How Obsessed With Peanut Butter You Actually Are” BuzzFeed Quiz
I’m in a serious relationship with peanut butter because I love it so much. Are you really surprised, though? I am Peanut Butter & Ellie, after all! 🙂
How obsessed with peanut butter are you? Tell me in the comments!
This is a series of four episodes with eight kids that compete to be the “best” kid baker in the U.S.A.! The kids make a bunch of different desserts in a series of challenges, such as having to make three of their favorite desserts in two hours, making a dessert that looks like a savory food (dessert pizza, tacos, spaghetti, sushi, and burgers), and making sweet and savory éclairs and cream puffs. It’s a fun show, and I want to be baking right there with them!
5. Last but not least, I’m super excited that my high school tennis team got second in the state tennis championship this past weekend!
Not to brag or anything… I’m just excited and some of you asked how the tournament went so I thought I’d tell you! 🙂 I’m going to miss tennis practice every day with my team. It’s kind of nice to have some free time though!
Here’s my team: I’m in the bottom row, fourth in if you start on the left side (with the sunglasses on top of my head).
So that’s my Friday! What are you up to this weekend? If you’re not doing much, I suggest you make either the cookies or cupcakes in this Fab 5 Friday!
