WEEKEND INSPIRATION: Beet It

Weekend Inspiration Beets
Happy Friday and weekend everyone. What do you have planned for the weekend? I hope something fun, maybe some relaxation time and of course a little creativity. I’ve been so inspired by all the beautiful beet recipes I’ve been seeing lately. I’m thinking about picking up some beets and experimenting this weekend. Be on the lookout for something beet-related from me. In the meantime, be inspired by these gorgeous beet recipes.

GOOD TASTE: Naked Cake Fail & Spring Cupcakes

Naked Cake Fail (1)I’m sure you’ve seen all of those beautiful “naked” cakes that are being pinned lately. They’re all the rage and so pretty overflowing with layers of frosting, berries and flowers. I decided to try to make one and although I wouldn’t categorize it as a complete fail it definitely falls short of the inspiration images I’ve been eyeing.

GOOD TASTE: Jazzed Up Instant Ramen Noodles

Instant Ramen Upgrade  - homework (2)


You know those instant ramen noodles – the ones that come in a compact rectangle with a little powdery season pack? Ya, those. I always keep packages of those in my cupboard. If I do make them with the season pack, I only use about 1/3 of the packet. But I rarely use the seasoning that it comes with. Instead, they’re a great base for leftovers. Beef, pork, chicken, shrimp… just about anything goes with those noodles. Here’s an example of what you can make.

GOOD TASTE: Peanut Butter Chocolate Button Cookies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Button Cookies via homework - carolynshomework (3)Did I mention we’re having an end-of-summer heat wave here in Southern California? We are. The kind of heat where you just don’t want to do anything. Plus, since we live near the coast, we don’t have air conditioning. We rely on an ocean breeze that has been letting us down lately.

And I don’t even get the really good stuff – that’s just too pricey. I finally had some time and made up a batch and it is so good.
