Upside Down Apple Cake

Hello! Hi! Welcome! It has been a quick couple of minutes – and by that, I mean, it has been almost 2 and 1/2 months. This blog has been dormant for a long time – and I wish I could say it’s because I’ve been busy exploring the world, busy taking in the last moments […]

Quarantine Diaries: Taking in the Moments and Living Life

It’s September – and in some ways, life feels exactly the same. I no longer understand the concept of time. In March, the world transformed. The loud roar of cities became quiet as people stayed inside. The crowded corridors of college campuses became isolated as students returned home to finish the semester. The buzz of […]

The BEST Chocolate Chip Cookies

This post is important. Probably one of the most important ones I’ve ever written. Why? Well, today we’re talking about chocolate chip cookies. The superior dessert. My absolute favorite dessert.

Strawberry Cake

I have a list of desserts I would like to make at some point in my life — my “baking bucket list.” Homemade strawberry cake has been on it for ages, and for some reason, I just never thought of baking it. I always thought it would be too hard or too time consuming, but […]

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). I’ve made a Nutella chocolate cake, Nutella ice cream, Nutella dipped pretzels, Nutella ice cream cake (coming soon!), Nutella plain, Nutella in my brain, Nutella by the spoon. It […]
