The Girl Under the Apron


My name is Hira, I am currently a student at The University of Texas at Austin (Hook ’em), and I love sweets.

I started this blog summer 2014 (when I was a shy fourteen year old. Oh how time flies!) to share my love for desserts (making them, eating them, giving them). I am a firm believer that the best way to make someone’s life better is to deliver a plate of warm brownies or homemade cookies. I mean, when I’m upset, why would I want someone crying with me? Cookies, please!

In my day-to-day life, my friends describe me as a real-life Leslie Knope, which is I take as the biggest compliment.

Here are ten things about me:

  1. I am majoring in International Relations, so I am a huge news nerd. I love to read the news, to watch the news, and to write the news (in my dreams). 🙂
  2. My absolute favorite food is a chocolate frosted donut. The way to my heart are donuts (take notes 😉 ).
  3. I am a total “mom.” If you know me personally, I am sorry for always pushing you around– love you!
  4. My favorite book is Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier– not many people have heard of it.
  5. I am an ‘old soul.’ I love black & white movies, granny floral, and reflecting on everything. I’m very introspective (sorry friends for my unecessary converstations). 
  6. I love ABBA (thanks, dad). I am a dancing queen (… young and sweet only seventeen”).
  7. I love to travel. 
  8. When I was younger, my dad would give me an ice-cream sandwich for breakfast. Every. Single. Day. (I was a chubby (and cute) kid)
  9. My favorite color is yellow. So many people hate yellow, which doesn’t make sense. Yellow is equivalent to happiness, right?
  10. One of my college essays was about my love for baking. Seriously. (It was a good essay, I promise 😉 )

I hope you enjoyed your stay, and please come again!

If you have any questions about me, feel free to comment below (nothing makes me happier than reading a comment from one of you guys)!

  4. I realized I hadn’t read this part of the blog yet, so I had to read it. Seeing the picture of your grandfather reminded me of an experience I had in 4th grade, I think. Haha, those were good times.
