First epic pastry fail of 2019. I even made my own puff pastry for this galette/pithivier. Like you Bears fans, I was so sure it was going to work out, but clearly I missed that one little spot. #pastryfail #imoverthis #next #transparentbaker #uglybaking
Greek Desserts 2.0 Ground greek honey cookies #melomakarona , @fage yogurt cheesecake, candied walnuts, and the bejeweled fruit. Confession: I am not a fan of cheesecake, but this is so light and 👌🏽. #pastrychef #bakingtherapy #greekdesserts #desserts #eatyourheartout #chicago #instapic #instadessert #γλυκα #μελομακαρονα
What an incredibly gorgeous Friday evening in Chicago. #chicago #312 #chicity #roomwithaview
As you can see, I've been making up for lost time in my kitchen. May the new year bring everyone good health, great food and the best circle of company. #2019 #pastrychef #chicago #hustlehard #chocolate #tarts #desserts #bakingtherapy #cordillera #colombiasfinest #decadence #dessertprofessional #holidaysweets #nonpareil #bespoke #pastry Cardamom milk chocolate (Cordillera 35% from @viola_imports )ganache tart with dehydrated persimmon flowers.
My sister @wybodesign always bitches I never make her cake. I hope these will appease her for the next few months. Prince (in the background) is my patron saint here. #saturdaynight #baked #pastrychef #hostagetothekitchen #chicago #princeapproved
There's no such thing as too many sweets when you're Greek. My mom and I knocked these out yesterday afternoon as we waited for dinner to finish cooking. I've been baking with her since I was little. My time in the kitchen with her has always been the best Christmas gift.
When your work family knows you better than you know yourself. Thank you, Sarah. I cherish them. #catladiesforever #merrychristmas #catsockdecorating
All the holiday feels. Merry Christmas to all of you.
I am always so honored when friends (and friends of friends) ask me to make a cake for their special occasions. I was even more excited to make this GF chocolate cake with some of the best chocolate I've tried to date. It's called Cordillera, a single origin Colombian bean, that is not only beautiful in flavor but in use. My good friends at @viola_imports and @foodlinksusainc introduced me to this, and I feel like I struck gold with this line. Details: 4 layer GF chocolate cake, with chocolate/ coffee mousse, and sour cream frosting using the 65% Cordillera. 💃🏻And this may be the sexiest cake I've made all year. 💃🏻 #chocolate #pastrychef #pastry #cakedecorating #colombia #chicago #decadence #chicagofood #holidaycakes #blackandgold Thank you @siemionpawel for the opportunity to do this.
The outtakes before getting a decent picture with this Grinch made me cry from laughter (he hates pictures). Merry Christmas. #gingercatsofinstagram #myshadow #thorninmyside #myheart #cairo #mygrinch
Train your eye to see beauty everywhere. #chicago #halfmoon #wintersky #commuting
So grateful and humbled and grateful and humbled. My work family rocks. Thank you, Aubry. 🙏🙌 #starbuckspartners
I should have been out last night, looking holiday fancy and chatting with distinguished gentlemen, but my priorities were elsewhere. #speculoos #caturday #bakingtherapy #saturdaynightshenanigans
This year was the toughest on a personal level, yet seeing this lady persevere has been the most treasured part of 2018. #mybestnine #thisisus
Basic Chicago with the el and some UFO's to the left. #chicago #312
