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

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?

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.

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

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
