New Year, New York

Hope you all had a wonderful New Year’s Eve. Whether you welcomed the year with friends, family, or with some tipsy strangers– I hope your 2014 proves to be the best yet! By that I mean, I hope this year is full of inspiration and innovation. Trust yourself to take that adventure, push your boundaries, love the person you’ve grown into. Much better than starting that no-carb diet, right?

Throw out your ridiculous resolutions. It’ll be ok, I promise. This first post of the year is dedicated to the most iconic New Year’s Eve city… New York, NEW YORK. I wanted to showcase this magical time of year as well as pair that with a dessert that I feel best represents N.Y.C.! I’m so incredibly grateful for all of you and for the constant challenge and growth this blog continues brings to me. Cheers to 2014 and here’s to another year!

momofuku milk bar no. 11 {bagel bombs}

Sometimes savory is better than sweet. And since it’s been a bit of a sweets overload on this site, this was a great palette cleanser.

These bagel bombs are little pockets of dough filled with bacon-scallion cream cheese and sprinkled with an everything bagel mix of sesame, poppy seeds, onions, and garlic. I cannot express to you how delicious they are! You will want to harbor them all to yourself.

Oh, I’ve missed y’all so much.

I have been slacking in the blogging, I know… it’s been for valid reasons if that makes it any better (it doesn’t). All great excuses: the Met Gala (!!!), moving office spaces, and being the maid of honor at my friend Rebecca’s wedding. But my priorities are back in order now and the Momofuku Milk Bar Exams are back on! Which is great because this recipe is a true showstopper.
