Chai Tea Cupcakes

I have to say, probably my favorite thing to give people for their birthday is food. If I don’t know the person very well, chocolate chip cookies are always the best bet. However, it is the most fun making food for someone I know well, because then I can customize it to exactly what they […]

Raspberry Swirl Brownies + Circuit Training

I know, I know, those two things in the title really don’t go well together. Or maybe they do, in the sense that when you eat what seems like five thousand brownies within just a couple of days, you really should do some circuit training. Either way, as promised, I have a recipe and some […]

Chocolate Chip Ice Cream Cake

For the past four July 27ths I have made Dan (whose birthday is today – Happy Birthday!) this ice cream cake. Four years ago I asked him what type of cake he wanted me to make for him, and somehow the conversation got around to ice cream cakes. He had never even tried an ice […]

Dinner for a Grad

Good afternoon, and happy Friday! Last night I made a dinner and had a mini celebration for my friend Sarah, who just finished her undergrad degree! We met our sophomore year of high school, and have been great friends ever since. 🙂 Sarah finished her degree in three years, taking 20+ credits almost every semester. […]

2-Ingredient Soda Cupcakes

This recipe has been around for a long time, I think. However, I only recently discovered it, and made it just a few weeks ago. All I can say is, it’s a keeper. While there are plenty of combinations to try out, diet soda works just as well as regular, and cuts at least 100 calories […]

Frosting Filled Chocolate Cupcakes

UPDATE: I realized that the original recipe I had written on LLL was wrong. I did not have one key ingredient written down, which is canola oil. You can see now that it is in the recipe, but I apologize to anyone who might have tried to make these cupcakes and they didn’t turn out. […]

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, […]
