Some serious life changes in 2015

Happy 2015!

Happy 2015 everyone! People tell me all the time, you’ve got it all together! You’re living the life! Huh? What?

Erin Cooks: French Onion Soup

Tyler Florence French Onion Soup Recipe and Review

As 2014 comes to a close, and I look at the bigger picture for 2015, I’ve decided to share more of my personal interests here on Scandalous Beauty. This will absolutely still include makeup and beauty posts, but as you saw in my DIY bar cart, gallery wallposts, I’m showing you my home and other things that excite me.

I’ve been a fan of cooking all my life. My mom started letting me cook around age 6, and from there, it’s always been exciting to me. I’ve attempted to make a food blog over and over again, but for some reason they never work out for me.

French onion soup is one of my favorite Winter (Spring, Summer and Fall) indulgences. I’ve tried several recipes, but this one has to be the best. I saw it on an episode of Tyler’s Ultimate, and haven’t tried another since! The wine infusion (I used Boordy Vineyards Petit Cabernet, but any dry red should work fine)along with fresh herbs give it an amazing richness. Watch the tutorial below, and see the official recipe here.
