June Things

And just like that we have moved to another month in 2020, but weirdly I still feel stuck in the month of March — when I came home in the middle of my college semester for spring break, which, ultimately, extended into the rest of the academic year. I finished my junior year of college […]

Chocolate Ice Cream

I go to bed thinking about all of the ingredients in my fridge that I can use to prepare something sweet (is that normal?). Heavy cream, what can I do with that? Leftover chocolate chips, what about those (besides a good afternoon snack)? How about that bowl of egg yolks? If I’m being honest, I […]

Nutella Button Cookies

Nutella has been the apple of my eye (if only I was eating apples, and not loads of sugary, luxurious Nutella — oh well, life’s short).

Third Year of College In Review

I say this every time I write one of these reviews, but time moves too fast. Just like that, and here we are. I have completed by third year of college. I only have one year left of this journey, and then, I will join the working world, identify as a real adult, and no […]

Nutella Banana Bread

Brown bananas. They sit in your fruit bowl slowly turning the color of mud, but that mud can become gold — a golden loaf of heavenly banana bread. I feel like that’s kind of like a metaphor for my life right now. After being in quarantine for what feels like forever, I am slowly turning […]

Wacky Cake {The Easiest Chocolate Cake}

Another week — and just thinking of that makes my head spin. Another week in quarantine, in isolation, in this wild time, where being at home is a blessing and taking classes online is the new normal. I guess last week was my emotional crack. My last blog post shows it. Experiencing this time has […]
