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 […]

Lofthouse Sugar Cookies

The world feels painfully loud, yet painfully quiet. It’s loud because we as a community of humans are finally standing up and addressing the systemic inequality that has drowned society forever. It also feels painfully quiet because each day I notice how there are still many inequalities and adversities going unmentioned. The world is a […]

Blueberry Lemon Cookies

My family. My faith. My friends. My home. My education. My life. There is so much I am grateful for. There is so much that brings me hope and happiness. However, remembering these things becomes harder when the world is becoming more and more gloomy. The world is not ending, but that’s not what scares […]

Neapolitan Cookies

Three colors. Three flavors. Three experiences. The number three is weird. We separate phone numbers in three. We say statements like “third times a charm.” We count to three before we open a tight jar (I can’t be the only one who has trouble opening jars of strawberry jam). I practice something called the “three […]

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

You may already know this, but I love desserts. Like, a lot. I am the happiest version of myself when I’m in the kitchen, around chocolate chips, surrounded by flour and sugar, etc. Life is good. My love for dessert runs so deep that growing up I would eat a chocolate Nutella sandwich for lunch […]

Jam Thumbprint Cookies

There are a few things in life that I believe truly go together. Hot chocolate and cold winter nights, cream cheese frosting and red velvet cake, the Grease soundtrack and long road trips, etc. What makes these items work so well together? Memories. There is no “rule book” that states that these items are meant […]

Brookies {Brownies + Cookies}

Baking memories are my absolute favorite childhood memories. When I was little, my mom would bake brownies and let me lick the bowl. Life was so simple. Go to school, come home, eat dinner — repeat. I remember when my weekends were full of piano lessons, family dinners, and Sunday school lectures. Nothing really mattered. […]
