Homemade Granola

Fall approaches slowly from behind, wrapping all-consuming arms around you.  They warm your body like a wool sweater, protecting you from the bite of the season’s first cold breeze.  You turn to face your old friend, feeling a bittersweet aching in your chest in contest to the loss of summer’s inhibitions.  But you walk steadily; ready […]

Adventures with Honey

As you may or may not know, my oven is broken.  And so, I don’t have any tempting pastries to share with you.  But, while we wait, I have a few photos of a little walk I took with Honey this weekend.  We walked straight from my house to the beach.  Despite it’s quirks, I […]

Chocolate Chip Scones

In Flux: I have to admit that I had a small moment of regret when I first posted the link to my blog on Facebook.  I was feeling a little bit embarrassed of the amateur quality of my new blog.  I guess that is the beauty of the internet though.  Pretty much anyone can post […]

Lemon Buttermilk Bundt Cake

My mom once told me, “long-distance relationship is an oxymoron”.  Clearly, I didn’t heed her warning.  But even after more than a year of seven hour drives back and forth, communicating solely over text message at times, and tearful phone conversations in the middle night, I can’t say that I regret my decision.  The truth […]

Pumpkin Spice Donuts (baked)

Everybody loves donuts.  Right?  I’ve heard people say they don’t like chocolate or there not a big fan of pizza.  But everybody loves donuts.  I know it.  The best thing and worst thing about donuts is that they are deep fried rings of carbs and sugar.  Soooo delicious and so bad for you.  That’s why we now […]

Pumpkin Pie (from scratch)

I wish I could say that school’s going great.  All my homework is done and I’m completely caught up.  I’ve also been eating healthy, exercising, and getting 8 hours of sleep at night.  I wish I could say that, but I’m no liar. The truth of that matter is, I am extremely motivated!  Motivated to […]

Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Cookies

  I couldn’t be happier that the week is finally coming to an end.  I’m starting to seriously feel the effects of sleep deprivation.  Be prepared though.  I will only become more tired and haggard as the quarter progresses.  At least I’m not running low on motivation to bake!  I have so many recipes I […]

My 20th Birthday!

Today I turned 20 years old.  And I am proud to say that I will never be a teenager again!  It feels pretty surreal to be 20 actually (despite the fact that pretty much all of my friends turned 20 many months ago).  It’s just that I’m the baby in my family and I don’t […]

Snickerdoodles

I have a bad case of the Sunday Blues.  You know that feeling where you start to panic because the weekend is so short and the week is so long and there’s about five hundred billion things you need to get done, but you don’t even know where to begin and you’re just melancholy and […]
