A Cozy Kitchen by Adrianna Adarme - 5d ago
Summer is here! I couldn’t be more excited about this olive oil cake with fresh berries. It took exactly twenty tries for me to get right but I could not be more excited about how delicious and fresh this cake came out! For this post, I teamed up with ALDI where I went to get all of my summer baking needs. For years, I’ve wanted to make an olive oil cake but I always hesitated because most of them called for a healthy amount of olive oil and the cake just sounded sort of expensive to make. But at ALDI I was able to buy the freshest berries and really great-quality olive oil for really affordable prices. Every single item I purchased at ALDI made for a super delicious, tasty and affordable cake that is perfect for any bbq, summer-y get together or simple dinner. And every single item is Instacart basket—isn’t that cool?! You’re only minutes from having the groceries delivered to your door; this olive oil cake is in your future. Let’s get into the nitty-gritty of this cake! Olive oil cakes can be challenging because I really wanted you to be able to taste the olive oil […]

A Cozy Kitchen by Adrianna Adarme - 2w ago
I was going to write a whole blog post about how I spring clean in the kitchen but the truth of the matter is that I destroy this kitchen nearly every single day. So really, I clean daily. Constantly. It really doesn’t stop. What’s unfortunate for me is that I also hate messes. HATE. I blame this on growing up with a very organized and clean mother. Our house was always immaculately clean because of her. And I took after her (though I’m not nearly as good at it). In order for me to think and be creative, I have to begin with a clean slate every single day. This means that I clean the kitchen up and down at the end of the day. It gives me peace! For this post, I teamed up with Home Made Simple, which is a plant-based naturally-inspired line of cleaning products. These cleaning products have zero phosphates, parabens, gluten and dyes, meaning that these products are not only effective but super safe for all of us, including Amelia. I always worry about what I’m cleaning the floor with since she’s always lying in a corner somewhere taking a nap. I also need cleaning […]

Hello from the other side of this cake which took me exactly five beautiful hours to decorate. I thought the #18 tip was going to be bigger than this but it ended up being teeny tiny! And I also may have been distracted by old episodes of Real Housewives of New York. I forgot how great/terrible/amazing they are. I’ve been in the throes of getting our house together. I’m trying to take my bedroom from dorm room to cozy and it’s taken a lot of planning and moving random things out of it (whole post coming soon!). I guess you can say spring cleaning has been in full effect and it feels SO nice. So naturally, I took a bit of a break and made this cake. This cake is so delicious and it comes from Icing On The Cake: Baking and Decorating Simple, Stunning Desserts at Home. If you’ve ever wanted to learn how to make beautiful beautiful cakes that also taste delicious, her book is a wonderful resource. It’s so inspiring, there were at least ten other cakes I was debating before I settled on this one! I ended up going with this Passionfruit Cake because Josh had […]

It’s May and while I’m usually complaining about the time passing so quickly, I’m also super excited for May because that means I’m going to Paris! Josh and I are celebrating our first year of marriage by taking a trip to Paris at the end of the month and we couldn’t be more excited. It’ll be our first time there EVER! I’m super excited to eat croissants every single morning, drink loads of coffee and eat all the butter. But until then, we still have brunches and Mother’s Day celebrations to have and meals to make! Roasted Rhubarb Scones with Vanilla Bean – These scones are what I call…interesting. The rhubarb is roasted to remove some of its liquid. And then the dough is flattened and the rhubarb is placed in the center. The dough is folded over and baked! SO GOOD! Shoyu Chicken with Hawaiian Mac Salad – I made this chicken last month and since I posted it, I’ve made it like four times. It’s the easiest, breeziest dinner EVER. Also it’s super delicious. Ramp Cacio e Pepe – Ramps have about a 1 month window every Spring, if we’re lucky and most times people are like “what […]

I’m not going to lie, it took me yearrrrrs to finally get up the courage to try jackfruit. I have no idea why because it’s the least offensive out of all the vegan meat substitutes. I’d like to declare that it actually tastes good! If you’ve never had jackfruit, here’s some info: Jackfruit comes from jack trees—they’re related to the fig and mulberry trees—which are commonly found in southeast Asia. And while it’s related to figs and mulberries, jack fruit’s texture is similar to artichoke hearts. The best part about jackfruit is that it’s easily attainable (I bought it in the can) and shreds kinda similarly to meat (think carnitas or chicken!). It’s wild. It sort of blew my mind. This recipe for Jackfruit Tinga Tacos are super easy. You start with the tinga sauce, which is full of all good things, including lots of spices and tomatoes. After everything is toasted and cooked, it goes in the blender so it’s silky smooth. And then the jackfruit is drained from the can, rinsed and shredded. If you have no idea how to shred jackfruit, do not worry! I’ll be posting a tutorial on my IG stories (and I’ll save it […]

Have you ever been to a cookbook pot lucky party? I have to say, I think they’re brilliant. A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to attend a cookbook potluck where each attendee made a dish from a chosen book. I’ve seen a few on the Instagram and I’ve always been like, “hmm, that’s a good idea!!” What made it even better was all the recipes were supposed to be made from Aloha Kitchen! This book is so breathtakingly beautiful, from the photos of beautiful Hawaii to the food and recipes and the history lesson, it’s really amazing. Last year was the first time I had ever visited Hawaii and the minute I landed and was told we were having dinner on a former plantation, I had A LOT OF QUESTIONS. I honestly knew very little about Hawaii. So I did my usual quick history lesson on the car ride to the hotel and I didn’t learn nearly as much as I wanted to. Alana teaches the history seamlessly, interweaving it with food and how the cuisine and all of its vastness came about. I wanted to try SO many of the recipes but I settled on this Shoyu […]

I’m not gonna front, these carrot cupcakes are THIS carrot sheet cake recipe in cupcake form. A lot of people have asked me “can I make this sheet cake into cupcakes?” The answer is absolutely! It’s as simple as making the batter and putting it into cupcake liners. But listen, I know that might sound more than easy but sometimes we have to see it in its transformed state in order to actually be inspired to make it you know? Here they are transformed! These cupcakes are so delicious and if you want something sort of bite-sized for your brunch situation, then these are it for you! I love carrot cake. It is divine. And it’s always been incredibly high on my list of things to make when the weather starts to get a bit nicer. I love the bits of carrot, crunchy walnuts and large quick bread-like crumb. The cream cheese frosting is thick but also super fluffy (thanks to the heavy cream that’s whipped in there) and then I made a strong buttercream for the anemone flowers. Those are totally extra credit and absolutely unnecessary! I made them, mixing in a few colors to make them a bit […]

I completely forgot to post a ’10 Cozy Things to Make in April’! WHAA! I don’t get where my brain was but it wasn’t working apparently. Easter is next weekend so I figured I’d skip to what you should make for Easter vs. April. TBH I don’t even know what I’m doing for Easter. Josh is throwing a pop-up and I’ve promised to be the hostess and make the flower arrangements. I’m guessing I’ll be totally exhausted and will most likely wanna stay in bed. We shall see! Overnight Cinnamon Rolls – But I also might make a batch of these rolls the day before and bake them up the morning of so who knows! Conchas – SOOO many of you made these conchas and I love seeing everyone’s iterations, with the different toppings. Instant Pot Lamb Shank – I made this last year and it was so delicious. The Instant Pot is a true time-saver and the chipotle sauce is something I make all the time. Cappuccino-Flavored Rose Cupcakes – These cupcakes are so delicious. White fluffy cake and mocha-flavored cake layered together to make the perfect “cappuccino.” Strawberry Sheet Cake with Rhubarb Frosting – One of the most […]

A Cozy Kitchen by Adrianna Adarme - 1M ago
This is the first ever trifle I’ve ever made! Some of you will probably be shocked, appalled, stunned. And the other half of you probably don’t know what a trifle is. Don’t worry, I will explain. In my extensive trifle internet research I read that trifles are very much English. And they do very much remind me of an eton’s mess. But just on a grander, larger scale, which I am very into. Especially since we’re in the thick of spring, which means Easter, brunches and gatherings. For this post, I teamed up with Pyrex and their new line of Pyrex Deep baking dishes. I love Pyrex so much and use their products daily. Their Deep line is extra special because it is up to 50% deeper – meaning you can fit even more pasta (for pasta bakes), a bigger roast (for Easter) and even more layers (for trifles). I also love that they all come with super secure lids so you can take to your friends’ and families’ houses and you don’t have to worry about spillage. I love all of their products; everything from their glass dishes for storing leftovers to measuring cups—they’re all amazing and affordable. These […]

(This post is sponsored by ALDI. Thanks for supporting the sponsors that keep A Cozy Kitchen cozy.) Spring has sprung and I am INTO IT. I am in full baking maniac-mode and it’s so fun. I love making things with spring flavors and spring produce. It makes me so happy. I especially am very into making things with Easter in mind, considering it’s one of my favorite holidays to cook/bake for. I’ve been wanting to make a coconut cake for a loooong time and figured adding toasted almonds to it would make it a million times better. I was right! For this post, I teamed up with ALDI you know that it is the best place to stock up on baking ingredients. I always go there and buy double, triple of everything. On this particular trip, I went and purchased organic brown eggs, flour, sugar, coconut flakes, almonds and cream cheese. It was a one-stop shop for all things cute. I also baked it in this 9×9-inch Crofton Speckled Bakeware square pan that was super cute. Another amazing thing about ALDI is that it is on Instacart, which is a huge time-saver and easy convenience. (If you want, use code “ALDIACK” […]
