cock sauce. cocktail sauce that is.

mmm. i was so craving cocktail shrimp when i went shopping this afternoon. after picking out the most scrumdidilyumptious looking ones i ventured out to choose a hot cocktail sauce. i find one and while i'm looking at its label something hits me. is it just me or does it seem like the bottles of cocktail sauce ranging from $2-4 is outrageous? i mean. you're only using like 1/2 cup maybe less for your shrimp cocktail. well. i like a lot but shiet it's still pretty pricey for not using the entire bottle. granted you'll have extra when it comes along i just don't think it's necessary to have a huge bottle for that price when it won't be used often. why hasn't someone come up with smaller bottle/cup for $1 or .25? NEWAYS. as i shook my head and put  it back i decided to make my own sauce. i didn't really measure anything except i used 1/2 cup of ketchup and everything else was season to taste. sorry i didn't put exact measurements. trust your inner chef i guess. haha. sorry. but mine turned out amazing and i think i'll be doing this more often. F*ck $2-4 bottles of cocktail sauce. 

Shrimp Cocktail Sauce
1/2 cup of ketchup
dash of ground pepper
dash of cayenne pepper*ur own hotness level
2 dabs of Tabasco*ur own hotness level
2 shakes of Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp of Wasabi*ur own hotness level
1 garlic clove minced
1 tsp of lemon juice

mix well. chill before using. enjoy!

12 oz nonfat wet cappuccino, please

Cappuccino. coffee. love my life amongst other things. isn't it gorgeous when your cappuccino is placed in front of you with a heart or crazy shape floating in the foam? so awesome. i feel guilty for breaking the beautiful art but below the surface is what's calling me. for awhile i was going with mochas. just a plain ol mocha. then next raspberry mochas. to breve raspberry mochas. to white chocolate mochas. but now my heart rests between a nice wet cappuccino and a sweet white chocolate mocha. when i need my fix. i need it. i'm starting to slow down a little bit. i use to do 3 per day. maybe even one more for a snack. my baristas all know what i want and i'm guilty for cheating on them for another. yes. i do feel guilty. well. today i'm stuck with a bitter nasty starbuck drip coffee which i added some hazelnut creme for correction. failed. i think i'll go to my barista down the street and ask for a:

"yes, can i please get a 12 oz nonfat wet cappuccino."

you dirty broad

i noticed Chicago is playing here in Seattle. I love that play. Anyways....the ad that caught my attention inspired me to quickly create a set i like to call. dirty broad. that's exactly what it is. so loving the style it puts off. in my mind i can see smeared red lipstick. smudged black eyeliner and shadow. torn sexy fishnet stockings paired with heels. no wonder i'm always quick to pair my dress shorts w. fishnet stockings!

....this girl needs sweets. STAT!....

thanks to EpiCute, bloq of cute food pics....let me just say don't view this bloq if you're starving. there's quite a few. i'll be posting up more when i get a chance to look at the rest. for now here's just a few that left me salivating...

a chance to wear chocolate sweets at my wrists. Fck yeah!

love the fact this one has the lavender flowers. wtf. the candied shiny part has the colors of creme brulee. uh double dopeness!

somehow i'm inspired by this one. i dont know why. the colors? the simplicity? idk. 

here's another one that clicked inspiration. loving the color combination.

i've never had macaroons before. CRAZY. i know. they're so pretty. they totally remind me of Marie Antoinette. love her by the way. and the movie played by Kristen Dunst.
