Gingersnaps

Christmas is only 10 days away!!!! This week at school is crazy with midterms and the anticipation of the coming break. The coming holiday also means I am eating too many cookies.. oops. There is a little cafe near my house that sells gingersnaps with their sandwiches. I was reminded of them the other day…

Maple Pecan Almond Butter w/ Chia & Flax Seeds

Welcome to my first post in forever. This summer has been SO BUSY, but I can’t complain. I’ve gotten to do so many amazing things, meet so many amazing people, and see so many amazing places! Right after I got out of school I spent about a week at my grandparents, then left for D.C….

“Energy” Bites

I am not quite sure if these live up to their name, but that’s what everyone is calling them on Pinterest, so I will go along with it. ūüôā I have recently discovered a new sweetener that is perfect for this recipe-dried dates. I have used them in pie crust, oatmeal, and other types of…

Peanut Butter Fudge

For me, Christmas time means I am spending a lot of time in the kitchen baking goodies. My favorite thing to make around this time of the year is this fudge! It is only 6 ingredients and much easier than you think to make. You don’t need a fancy candy thermometer like with some fudge…

Homemade Graham Crackers 

Recently I have been obsessed with the¬†King Arthur Flour website¬†and all the recipes on there! There’s soooo many I want to try. Two that I have recently ¬†tried and loved¬†are¬†this¬†chocolate cake and¬†this¬†old-fashioned apple cake. Definitely recommend. I found this graham cracker recipe on there and knew I had to try it! I guess it’s the…

Chocolate Mug Cake

Who doesn’t like the idea¬†behind Mug Cakes?¬†Whenever you have a cake craving, you can make yourself a mini cake. It’s so simple and it’s done in a few minutes! Plus,¬†I love watching the cake rise up out of the mug in the microwave. ūüôā The other day, I had the craving, making my brother and…

Pimento Cheese

I was so excited when my pimento plant finally produced a red pepper! I brought it inside, all ready to make pimento cheese, when my mother told me I couldn’t use it raw.. I was so disappointed. My little pimento all ready, but I couldn’t use it. Thankfully we had peppers in the fridge I…

Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Struggling what to write about for this pie. I have no words. It’s just that amazing. You can’t help but close your eyes as you take a bite¬†because a pie this good has to be savored. A pie good enough to often replace birthday cake in our house. My love for this peanut butter pie…

Roasted Garlic Cabbage

Cabbage is one of the cutest plants to me. (yes plants can be cute) It’s like a little present in the middle just waiting for you to pick it. Cabbage gets a lot of hate for it’s taste,but it’s probably because those people just haven’t cooked it right. ūüôā Because we have been getting so…

Lunch Lady Peanut Butter Bars

I used to¬†get school¬†lunch¬†every. single. day. And ok, so maybe I was weird and ordered¬†a salad¬†almost every day. (ps I am still weird)¬†I just wanted to go¬†to the salad bar and choose what I wanted on the side.¬† I¬†ate wayyyy to much canned fruit and cottage cheese……. I blame it on my Midwestern mom and…

Strawberry Shortcake

“We have been inundated with glory from heaven.” -my dad on all the strawberries we are getting. ( and people wonder why I am like I am) ūüôā But in all seriousness. We are getting a bunch of strawberries everyday now from our garden. I figured I needed to make them into something instead of eating…

Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

I love cookies. At sleepovers, I usually eat¬†99% of the cookies. Sweets at night time are my weakness. I just can’t do savory or salty. Sweet all the wayyyyyy. These cookies are the perfect bring-to-sleepover kinda cookie. Or the eat all by yourself kinda cookie. The original recipe calls for white chocolate chips, which makes…
