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

Spaghetti Squash and Cherry Tomatoes

Spaghetti Squash and Cherry Tomatoes

While Caroline has been on an amazing vacation with her family, I have been enjoying a week full of 100 degree temperatures. Seriously Texas, let’s cool down a bit ok? One thing I do love about living here is the abundance of fresh vegetables. I have become obsessed with spaghetti squash and as someone who … Continue reading

Farmer’s Markets and Babies

Farmer’s Markets and Babies

How is July already over? This summer has been going by so quickly and I feel like I’ve been spending lots of time in air conditioned buildings (100 degree weather is not my thing). One of the things I do venture outside for is the farmer’s market. It has become one of my Sunday morning … Continue reading

Or is it like adding the creaminess of guacamole to your hummus? Either way, the result is a delicious and super creamy treat that’s the perfect dip to pair with … Continue reading

Tacos de Camarones

Tacos de Camarones

Sine I moved to Texas, I have been exposed to lots of new things. For example, I’ve been able to experience 95 degree weather in May. Not so excited about that. However, I am excited about tacos. Maybe it’s the fact that the corn tortillas are ridiculously good here. They have a tortilla making station in the grocery … 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

Snacks

Snacks

I always keep a small bag of almonds in my purse/bag for those times when I need a snack. They especially came in handy during SXSW. Just picture me standing in a bar, sipping water and snacking on my almonds and the occasional fruit snack. I totally fit in. Anyways, I usually just eat raw almonds but … Continue reading
