Vanilla Cupcakes with Milk Chocolate Frosting

Food memories are some of the strongest. When I smell onions being caramelized with peppers in olive oil I’m immediately transported to when my parents would make fajitas. Or when I smell tomato sauce cooking on the stove it usually meant lasagna was on it’s way. But those are both memories conjured up mostly from smell. These cupcakes, while only just a small fraction of the food I’ve been made by my grandmother and probably only made a couple of times by her, are something that everytime I go to visit her, I think of these cupcakes.

Peppermint White Chocolate Mocha Cookies

Being homeschooled I never related to that feeling of being done with school for the year or for a break. It was all the same really, except when we were out we didn’t have to do any work. Same place though.

I happen to love figs.

Fig jam, fig pie, fig ice cream.

Pumpkin Goat Cheese Bread Pudding

Happy halloween!

I know I should be posting about how to make homemade candy, or what to do with leftover candy but well… I’m not.

I guess I haven’t gotten into the halloween spirit yet.

Pumpkin Pie Stuffed Cinnamon Pate A Choux

This past week has been…stressful to say the least. It’s that time of year when midterms you completely forgot about creep up on you and you start freaking out just a tad.

Raw Chocolate Pecan Cookies

I once heard a joke I thought was pretty funny, and in my experience, pretty accurate.

You ready? Don’t hate me.

How do you know if someone’s a vegan? Don’t worry they’ll tell you.

It’s funny right? No harm to any vegans or vegetarians out there, it’s just a simple joke, I’m cool with all of you. But seriously, I love this.

Cherry Almond Cupcakes

I love weddings.
I’ll admit i’m one of those girls who just loves dressing up to go to a wedding, even if I don’t have a date, and seeing the happy couple say those 2 magical words, “I do” proposing their undeniable love to each other.
