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

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  but 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

BIRTHDAY: PART DOS

BIRTHDAY: PART DOS

Nobody just spends one day celebrating their birthday right? I thought I would continue Latte Issues’ birthday week by going through all the delicious things we have made this past year and create a “Best of” post.  Just a warning, it might be a bad idea to read this if you’re hungry. (Ps- thank you … Continue reading

M.I.A.

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

Blondies

Blondies

Throwback to my blonde day(s) and our staple summer vacation in Maine. I could totally go for a day spent in the sun at the lake. I could also go for a big bowl of popcorn… For now I’m just going to have to enjoy these “brownies” that I made the other day in an … Continue reading

Pomme Frites

Pomme Frites

This post was inspired by the great city of Washington DC. During my job search, I made a trip to the capitol to go on some informational interviews and spend time with my cousin. We went to Granville Moore’s where they serve frittes, ales, and moules. Since they only have a limited menu to focus on, everything … Continue reading

Brown Butter & Coffee Sugar Cookies

Brown Butter & Coffee Sugar Cookies

These might just be the best cookies I’ve ever made. How could you go wrong with the combination of brown butter, coffee, and sugar? You could just use regular butter but going the extra step and browning the butter adds a deeper and nutty flavor. I made a gluten free version for my birthday and … Continue reading

Hot Potato

Hot Potato

I admit I have a slight obsession with french fries but I love potatoes in all of its forms: baked, mashed, roasted etc. Sweet potatoes are even better and better for you. I made these particular sweet potato fries this weekend. I’m trying to get as much baking out of my system before the heat … Continue reading

This Sh*! is B-a-n-a-n-a-s

This Sh*! is B-a-n-a-n-a-s

Whenever I type the word bananas I think of Gwen Stefani and her song “Hollaback Girl” so thank you Gwen for the title of this post. The reason why I had to type bananas is because today I am sharing my favorite banana bread recipe. It’s a recipe my mom clipped from The Yankee Cook years … Continue reading

Nutella Brownies

Nutella Brownies

I don’t think I’ve mentioned it yet but I actually started a new internship last week. It’s been really awesome and I’m so excited to be working with such a great organization. I’m still working retail to supplement because it’s an unpaid internship so I’ve somehow found myself working 7 days a week. And let … Continue reading
