Skinny Pumpkin Spice Cake

 What screams fall? Um, any & everything “PUMPKIN” obviously! icon smile Skinny Pumpkin Spice Cake  So, I decided that I would polish off the last piece of my “Skinny Pumpkin Spice Cake” w/ Cinnamon Icing and a warm cup of coffee to welcome fall correctly this morning.  I’m pretty sure it’s fair to say that we all get a wee bit excited about this time of year and the delicious food & drinks that come with it, such as pumpkin lattes, pumpkin pie, pumpkin bread, & “Skinny Pumpkin Spice Cake” ….you know what I mean?  This “Skinny Pumpkin Spice Cake” has no butter, oil, or eggs  which is why I refer to it as “Skinny!” You can find more pumpkin desserts here this fall @ www.prettybitchescancooktoo.com!

Pretty Bitch Rosa’Lina

Is it that time of the week again? The best part of the week. The pre-game into the weekend. Oh yea it’s “Thirsty Thursday” as you know it! Let’s kick it off with a “Pretty Bitch Rosa’Lina!” What’s that you ask? Well, the “Pretty Bitch Rosa’Lina” is a twist on a classic Bellini. I LOVE bellinis and the BEST I’ve ever had was at Cipriani in NY!  It was pure perfection with peach puree and simple syrup. My rendition is with a twist on a classic and contains peach schnapps & rose water! The peach schnapps gives the“Pretty Bitch Rosa’Lina” a nice hint of peach flavor and the rose water makes it perfection. What is rose water you ask? It’s just what you think, water infused with roses. The smell and flavor is intoxicating. You can find it at specialty or European marts and sometimes a liquor store. A little goes a long way here because its super potent in flavor but the combination taste of elegance. Please swing by weekly for new cocktail recipes every Thursday here @ www.prettybitchescancooktoo.com

Pretty Bitch Rosa’Lina! KISSES icon smile Pretty Bitch RosaLina

Ok, from my picture you can see I was a bit indulgent on Thursday! Ha, we all deserve to be from time to time! So, here in Newport Beach, CA there is a place called Cinderella Cakes and they are the WINNERS of TLC’s “The Ultimate Cake Off”, “My Fair Wedding,” & “OC Housewives.” I guess you can imagine that at some point this foodie with a sweet tooth was going to indulge and take the opportunity to try this well ranked establishment. Curious about the outcome? Ok, ok, ok ….. they were DEEEEEE-LICUOUS and I can’t add enough e’s in delicious. I mean a girl gets to drink champagne while eating a top rated cupcake all on a Thursday evening? Really? Who do I think I am? Shouldn’t this be illegal? JK! Us ladies need to learn to live & indulge from time to time and the combination was a spoiling moment that I wish I could of shared with my girlfriends. Any-whoozer ladies don’t forget to give this cocktail a test run, ok? You can’t go wrong here. Just play with the measurements to create your little taste of Heaven and invite over your girlfriends to splurge on a night of Champagne & Cupcakes…..just saying! icon smile Pretty Bitch RosaLina
