This week, I’m going to give you guys some life updates! It’s been a while since I’ve done one, and well a lot has changed! The biggest change coming soon is that I’m moving to the Big Apple! Yup, I’ll be leaving the beautiful city of San Francisco at the end of the year to move to NYC. Earlier this summer, my husband and I got job offers in two different cities. He moved to NYC (with the plan of him moving back in January 2018) and I stayed in SF with Elara. We tried to make it work, but after some time, his work told him that he would have to stay in NYC longer than originally planned. As much as I love getting ALL the baby hugs and kisses, it’s really hard. All the early morning (and I mean 3AM early!), messy meals and poopy diapers are exhausting. If you had a single parent, make sure you hug and tell them how amazing they are. I have a new-found respect for single parents because it takes a godly amount of patience, work, and time management.
Moving to NYC also means that I’m looking for a new job! Finding a job in NYC is proving to be tough for me. Almost every job I’m interested in requires a culinary or marketing degree. I did apply to few jobs anyway and received an email back telling me they are looking for people with a degree in that field. Currently, I’m asking my friends to connect me with anyone they might know in the food/food tech industry and it’s come up with some awesome leads! Hopefully one of them works out!
Onto the food! This week I made a delicious caramel apple tart! I made the caramel with Fireball whiskey to add a little cinnamony kick to it! So good! The crust is a cross between a shortcrust and a crumble. I found the final tart to be pretty sweet, so I sprinkle on a little more salt on top to give it that salty sweetness.
This is such an easy and impressive fall dessert- definitely, give it a try!
