Classic Brownies

Or not so classic, maybe. These brownies are egg and nut free, and can easily be made dairy free! I found the recipe on, and have made a few moderations (with the help of some user comments) to make them even tastier than the recipe! In the past I’ve had a really tough time […]

Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are my best cookies, and most likely the best cookies in the world. I realize that is not at all a humble thing to say, but it’s true. Try them for yourself and you’ll see! I’ll put the regular recipe up first, then the “healthified” recipe I made the other day. Good news – […]

(Late) Thursday Thoughts

Hello again! 1) I am so sorry that I haven’t been putting recipes up – let alone updating – for two whole weeks! 2) I moved into my apartment at school, and while I love it, the internet is so horrible. It takes me close to an hour to get onto my Blackboard (classes) site, […]

Thursday Thoughts + Pumpkin Spice Cake Cookies

1. I still have an essay to complete (from this past Fall semester), and it’s kicking my butt. No matter how hard I try, I cannot write a good essay unless it’s due the next day. I hate it! It’s not simply procrastination – I want to get it done, but for some stupid reason, […]

Meet Ella!

Ella is our 3 month old (tomorrow!) cockapoo puppy! My family got her about two weeks before I got back from London, so, obviously, I was super excited to meet her. She is soooo sweet. Annnd also kind of a terrorist. (As I wrote that, she pulled the kitchen towel down and was wrestling it.) […]

Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies

The base of this recipe is one of my favorite cookies. Ever. Ever ever. I’ll put up that recipe sometime, but for now………. Double Chocolate Cherry Cookies (E, N) makes 4-5 dozen Ingredients: – 1 1/4 cups all purpose flour – 1 cup whole wheat flour – 2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder – 1 tsp. […]

Happy 2012!

Happy New Year! I hope your year is the best one yet! I brought in 2012 old person style: I was at home before 7:45 pm, watching movies and TV (Horrible Bosses – so funny!), and I fell asleep before the ball dropped. I woke back up to see it, but then promptly fell back asleep. […]
