Cupcake Obsession

Cupcake Obsession

Caroline and I love our cupcakes. Like a lot. There are mug cake recipes you can make in the microwave EVERYWHERE and I have tried plenty of them. But there’s something special about cupcakes made in the oven. Caroline posted this recipe over a year ago and it’s still my go-to recipe. This time I … Continue reading

My Strange Addiction

My Strange Addiction

A full year and a half into my underemployment and still no full time job. Not that I’m complaining, because I’ve got three great part time jobs and a whole year and a half of awesome experiences. Still though, I wish I didn’t have to work 6 or 7 days a week and could use … Continue reading

Lemon Cake

Let us just take a moment to mourn a loss. A loss near and dear to me. The loss of my social life. This loss is all because of a little show; a little show named Scandal. I’ve been living under a rock for a few days. Life as I know it as gone a … Continue reading

PUMPKIN WEEK: Granola

PUMPKIN WEEK: Granola

Because I don’t eat enough granola (I only make it every weekend), I thought the perfect recipe to end pumpkin week with is Pumpkin Granola. Yes it sounds a little funny at first but this is my new favorite fall breakfast. And snack. And dessert. PS for those of you who are not pumpkin fans, … Continue reading

PUMPKIN WEEK: Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

Well, another year has come and gone and it is time again for our Second Annual Pumpkin Week! As you may remember from last year, Pumpkin Week was a bit delayed because of Hurricane Sandy and the super snowy storm that came right after. I’m not going to talk about how Hurricane Sandy ruined our … Continue reading

PUMPKIN WEEK: Finally Fall

PUMPKIN WEEK: Finally Fall

This weekend has been the perfect fall weekend. Blue skies, crisp air, and pumpkins. Fall here can’t really compete with fall in New England ┬ábut my roommate and I discovered a cute little farm where everything reminded us of home minus the changing leaves on trees. The farm was about an hour and a half … Continue reading

Vacation Station

Vacation Station

As has been established over and over again on this blog, life can be pretty hard for your average underemployed 20something. Something that isn’t hard? Taking time off from my working-7-days-a-week-schedule to travel to Seattle and Vancouver with my family. Here are some photos that I took (SPOILER ALERT: Most of them are food. Big … Continue reading

Mini Cupcakes

Mini Cupcakes

Recently the ratio of busy-ness to stressed-ness in my life has been relatively low. (Which I must say, is a greatly welcomed change.) I’ve narrowed down the reasoning behind this to two causes: 1. I really enjoy my new job. 2. I’ve increased the cute-ness factor in my life tenfold. Apparently that’s really all it … Continue reading

M.I.A.

Did you miss me? I’ve been MIA for awhile but don’t really know what has kept me from updating the blog besides life! Now that I’m working a normal 40hr per week job, I have more of a life and therefore will have more time to write. Just maybe not so many recipes to share … Continue reading
