Chocolate Mousse

As promised in my last post, I have a recipe for you. A simple, yet undeniably decadent recipe. Chocolate mousse is the person in your life who appears to have their life together, but, in reality, they don’t. Because let’s be real: no one does.  On the outside, this mousse looks impressive. I mean, it’s […]

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Ice Cream

When your oven is broken, the heat is intense, and you’re finally home for the summer, what do you do? Well, you can do many things. You can run through the neighborhood and reflect on your summer adventure. You can talk to your parents until the late hours of the night. You can eat your […]

Fruity Pebbles Ice Cream

Fruity Pebbles. Units of colorful puffs. Elements of fruity flavor. The flavor of my childhood. Sickly sweet. How could this pass as an appropriate breakfast? I’m not complaining, just asking. This ice cream transports me back to those times. Times when I would wake up 15-minutes before I had to go to school; rushing 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. A cheesecake is flexible. Don’t love Oreos? Add strawberry jam instead. Not a fan of that either? Don’t add any […]

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 […]

Black and White Banana Bread {Marble}

When I was applying to college in the summer of 2016, I wrote one of my admissions essays on my love for baking. I remember reading the words “unique” and “interests” and all I could think of was baking. My unique interest is baking. Yes. Today was another Saturday away from my family as I […]

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. […]

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 […]
