NUTELLA SCONES


Hey guys! Happy Sunday. Its a beautiful day in LA but unfortunately, I can't go out and play. I've had a bad cold for a while so I'm stuck in the casa eating soup & bread...while baking NUTELLA SCONES.
NUTELLA LOVERS, YOU MUST TRY THIS RECIPE!
I got this recipe from PhDCupckaer...but I made some changes. This recipe calls for 1/4 cup of Nutella for the dough. I used 1/2 cup of Nutella for the dough and drizzled 1/4 on top because I'm Nutella crazy. I also replaced the hazelnuts with chocolate chips because I'm also chocolate crazy.

But seriously, try it. You'll fall in love :)

4 Cheese Spicy Jalapeño Biscuits

Hellooooooooo.
Another post. FOOD. Love spicy? Well, love this:
4 cheese spicy jalapeño biscuits + spicy hollandaise sauce + smoked salmon + sunny sides + avocado (cream cheese is optional, TRY IT)

Ingredients:

Biscuits:
2 cups of flour
1 chopped fresh jalapeño pepper
1/2 cup of butter (cold)
2 1/2 - 3 cups of cheese for a VERY cheesy biscuit (If you're not cool enough, take it down to 1 cup)
---1 cup cheddar, 1 cup white cheddar, 1/2 cup gruyere, 1/2 jalapeño monterey jack
2 teaspoons of baking powder
pinch of salt, pepper, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, and smoked paprika
1 cup of whole milk

Spicy Hollandaise Sauce:
2 egg yolks
5 tablespoons of melted butter
1 teaspoon of lemon
1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper (Get a lil cray and add a dash or three of hot sauce)
Pinch of salt and pepper

Keep scrolling for directions.




Directions:

Biscuits
Preheat oven to 425 F. Its simple! Whisk dry ingredients then add wet ingredients. Mix it up. Spoon these bad boys on to a greased cookie pan. Bake for 18 minutes. Brush a melted butter + garlic salt mixture when biscuits are finished.

Hollandaise Sauce
Melt butter in the microwave. Set it aside. Whisk egg yolks vigorously in a heat-proof bowl. Place bowl so it fits over a small pot filled with 1 inch of water (do not let the bowl touch the water). Turn the burner to medium-low and whisk eggs until the water is lightly simmering and the eggs are lightened in color, doubled in volume, and thick (do not allow the water to boil, and be careful not to scramble the yolks). Lower the heat. While still whisking the yolks, add butter in a very slow stream while constantly whisking. Be careful not to add the butter too quickly. Add in all your spices while constantly whisking. DONE.

Guess Who's Back in the MF House?

Hey ya'll, I'm back.

This is weird. I haven't blogged in so long!
Let's play catch up. I moved out of West Hollywood and into my new apartment, got a new position at BCBG and I'm loving it, I grew half an inch, and I finally have enough space to cook and design. Life is beautiful. 
Unfortunately, I haven't designed prints in about a year but I promise that will change this year. I have a very good feeling about 2014. 2013 was such an amazing year. It can only get better, right?

But enough of the yada yada, look at these beautiful photos my friend, Sadie, shot for me. (Welcome her, she's new to LA!)


What I'm Wearing:

Juicy Couture shades (These bug eyes have held me down for 2+ years. I can't live without them)
BCBG necklace (Sample sale find, $10- ha)
Brandy Melville top
Clover Canyon pants and jacket (Sample sale find, $80 each- double ha.)
Zara heels
H&M rings
BCBGeneration bracelets (Free, muhaha)

Oh, hii.

You know I love black and white right? How about the print? The print is pretty cool, huh? Oh, and how about the back detail? I think it looks pretty classy, sessy, mature, and appropriate/perfect for work or a date (dates I never go on, ha.)

I almost forgot, how about my shape? The skirt totally gives the illusion that I have a slight hourglass figure. I love it!


PS I. Love. Sample. Sales.

What I'm wearing:

BCBGMAXAZRIA dress (Retail price: $228, Sample sale price: $20)
L.A.M.B heels
Michael Kors watch
ASOS cuff
Neiman Marcus tiger bracelet (I forgot the brand)


Thanks to @SarahRDD for taking my photos again :)
