Chocolate Chip Cookie Cheesecake

This cheesecake has transformed my perception of love. I will only accept a person who complements me as well as this chewy, crispy cookie and delicate, sweet cheesecake.

Neapolitan Cookies

This recipe is from Sally’s Baking Addiction. Three colors. Three flavors. Three experiences. The number three is weird. We separate phone numbers in three.

My love for dessert runs so deep that growing up I would eat a chocolate Nutella sandwich for lunch […]

Chocolate Oreo Balls

I love Oreo cookies. Not only are they delicious but they have childhood nostalgia wrapped into each layer. I remember opening up my lunch every day of 4th grade with a Ziploc bag of Oreo cookies hidden underneath my egg sandwich. Something so simple made me so happy. It’s the simple things, right? I like […]
