Guest Post: Everyday Delight Recipes

Hi everyone! My name is Carol over from Everyday Delights and I am thrilled to be guest posting for Tracy while she is off having European adventures with her new husband!

I myself am getting married to this handsome man, Nick, on July 31 and I’ve loved reading all about Tracy’s wedding plans (especially her shoes – how fabulous are those)!

My mom is an amazing cook, so I am lucky I got the cooking genes. I like to blog about recipes I make over on my blog, and I wanted to share with you some of my favorites over the years.

Homemade pizza:

The link above is to a classic Italian pizza but I also have a healthier whole wheat pizza dough that I think is equally as good. Put whatever toppings you enjoy on it, and I guarantee you’ll never be able to go back to Pizza Hut!

Giada’s pasta carbonara:

This dish is my weakness, seriously! I first discovered it when I studied aboard in Rome during my senior year in college. Ever since then, it has been my staple comfort food, almost like an alfredo sauce, only much more flavorful, thanks to the pancetta. On a cold day or whenever I need a little calorie splurge, this is where I go. Try it and I guarantee you wont be disappointed!

French onion soup

Your browser may not support display of this image.The weather is starting to change here in Seattle and this is making me excited for soup season, especially making French onion soup. I thought making French onion soup would be hard, but really, its quite easy as long as you set aside some time for the onions to caramelize (about 1 hour). I think this is a great dish to impress guests and it will get your whole house smelling like a French bistro!

Magnolia Bakery Cupcakes

Image And of course, for dessert, nothing beats cupcakes! When Nick and I went to NYC last year, I had to wait in the line around the corner for a Magnolia Bakery Cupcake, and it was well worth the wait! And I was so excited to see a few months after we got back, the Today Show features their cupcake recipe so now you can have your own bakery at home! The butter cream frosting is to die for!

Thanks so much for reading all about my favorite recopies everyone and thank you to Tracy for the opportunity to guest post! Hope everyone has a wonderful day and come by and visit me at my blog, Everyday Delights!
