The truth behind our Cupcake Home and a Macy's Free Special event

The truth is: I'm a horrible cook.
 No lie there.
 I can't cook for my life. 
Even my water burns.

I have tried it multiple times and it just doesn't happen. Don't get me wrong I try to cook everyday  and some days is good and other day is just plain bad.

 My poor husband pretends that the food is actually good but Bella tells me "mama all done"



Well thanks hon :)

Now, when it comes to baking is a whole different story. Baking is a set recipe, is something decadent and no matter what sugar always tastes good, even burnt. I can follow any recipe and it always turns out so so good!



 One dish that I can actually cook is lasagna (does it count since is baked?) but it is all thanks to my mother in law who stood by me, teaching me the recipe and it turns out so good every single time.

If you are anything like me and you have to learn from an actual person Macy's has got your back.

This coming Saturday, January the 28 at 3 pm in Macy's in Galleria Houston will be hosting the Culinary Council in which chef Bryan Caswell will throw it down in the kitchen with some game day dishes to prepare us for the big game.


 He will be sharing some tips and tricks, and I know I can use all the help I can get. 

On top of that, if you RSVP you will get a $10 Macy's card and if you purchase $35 or more in their Home Department you'll get a picture with the chef himself and a special game day gift. Chef Bryan 
participated in Food Newtwork "The Next Iron Chef" and won Food &Wine  Best New Chef Award!

Keep in mind this is a free event but seating is limited don't wait to RSVP later. Mark it on your calendar and go out to support a fellow Houstonian while enjoying some perks for you too!

Best part? You get to practice his recipes for an entire week before the big day! 
Hope to see you there.

  2. My idea of cooking and my husband's differ. I have no problems using boxed/processed foods. My husband likes the healthy from scratch versions. Hmmm maybe I should make HIM do more cooking then :)

  7. I'm very far from being an expert chef myself. My husband is great in the kitchen, so I'm extremely lucky.
