German Chocolate Cake

The worst thing about becoming older is that the people around you are also becoming older, which means everyone’s life is going in a totally different direction. Those who you love are probably moving to a new place, beginning a new journey — and so you no longer hold same space in that person’s life. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Tres Leches {the easy way}

Hello, friends. I have an exam tomorrow, but I am being the most wise and writing this blog post instead. I was supposed to take this exam before spring break, but then COVID-19 happened, and, well, it never happened. I have studied for this exam for so long. I have no idea what else to […]

Oreo Cheesecake Bars

If I could describe myself as a dessert, I would say I am a cheesecake. A cheesecake is simple — only needing a couple of ingredients. Cream cheese, eggs, sugar, etc. and there you go.

Chocolate Cupcakes

Chocolate. Chocolate + cake. Chocolate + cake + frosting. Chocolate + cake + frosting + in your mouth. Yes, we are talking about chocolate cupcakes. Cupcakes are personal. They are single serving.  You don’t have to share. You shouldn’t share. I don’t think it’s possible to share these ones. With a decadent chocolate cake and […]

Triple Chocolate Cake (Does it get any better?)

I enjoy baking cookies instead of going out. I watch the news more than I watch normal television. I spend more hours reading books than you can imagine. Growing up, I always felt different — and at 18-years-old, I still feel different. As an 8-year-old, this was a constant crisis. I never connected with the girls […]
