Caramel corn whoopie pies…YUM, right?! My mom found this recipe in Cuisine at Home last year and every time we bring the whoopie pies to a party, they’re a hit. The fluffy, cornbread-esque cookie tastes even more incredible paired with the caramel filling. These are a must-make dessert, I promise!

I’m off to New York tomorrow for work and can’t wait to eat my way through the city. First stop? Shake Shack, of course!

Last weekend and this week have been pretty busy, from helping my new roommate, Megan, move into my apartment to work piling up at the office. I did, however, find time on Sunday to make a quick trip to Trader Joe’s and to whip up this pasta salad. Since it continues to warm up here in LA, I figured this cold pasta would be perfect for lunch.

Megan and I are devoting the rest of the week to furnishing and decorating the apartment. Last night, we painted our table and chairs white, while sipping on wine and listening to the Hall & Oates Pandora station. It was pretty ideal. :)
