Birthday Dinner!!!

The absolute best part about having a birthday, is having other people spoil the crap out of you.

And that is EXACTLY what happened on my birthday this year =)

My foodie friend out-did herself by cooking me an amazing multi-course birthday dinner. Best part about it... THE THEME WAS CHEESE!!!!!! Does she know me? Or does she know me?

I am not going to post all of the recipes she used, but if you do want them, email me at for more information about it!

I just wanted to share a little bit of love I received and maybe give you a bit of inspiration! Since at the time of the meal, she was also a student, also on a budget and also has a kitchen the size of most people's bathroom. See! Anyone can do this kind of stuff! No culinary school diploma here, just a bit of patience, some google researching skills and a lot of love.
Appetizer #1: Prosciutto Wrapped Figs stuffed with Blue Cheese

Appetizer #2: Lemon, Herb and Goat Cheese Crostini

Main: Beef Wellington, Green Beans with Lemon and Toasted Almonds and Cheesy Mashed Potatoes
Just like to note here, I have NEVER liked green beans. Never ever in my life. And now... I love them. Thanks a lot eh. 
There was even blue cheese inside of the beef wellington!

Dessert: Vanilla Panna Cotta with Balsamic Strawberries

Hope you had a little inspiration and motivation here. Next time you have a friend with a birthday, skip the pricey presents and give them something from the heart and cook them an amazing meal!
