New Orleans 2012: The Fantastic Food Tour

Tallahassee, Florida is one of the most boring cities in the United States. Don’t get me wrong, I love going to school here, but it is not the place to spend the rest of your life. Stuck here for the summer, there’s only a few regular places you can visit, a few things you can […]

Holiday Decadence: Pomegranate White Chocolate Cupcakes

During the holidays, calories don’t exist. The holidays are for food, family and presents and I really enjoy buying and making for people. Especially since finals are over and winter break has officially started, baking seems like the ideal way to pass the time. I know I have been neglecting Collegiate Creative lately, but blame […]

Forever Falling in Love with Fall: Mini Pumpkin Swirl Cheesecakes

Everything about Fall weather suits me. I love the seasonal food, the scarves, the weather… it just puts me into such a better mood. Too bad I go back down to South Florida for Thanksgiving, it feels so much more like real Thanksgiving time when you don’t have palm trees swaying outside your front window. […]

My Oh Mayo

Okay so Ina Garten might kill me and my roommate, Ariane, wasn’t too pleased either when I informed her, but I tried a different approach to this baked chicken. Most of the time, I would take  a chicken breast, dredge it in egg and flour, then breadcrumbs and bake it off. This time, though, I […]

A Pumpkin Party Is No Fun Without Some Blondies

When Fall rolls around, the scarves come out, the drinks get hotter and the baked goods and soups are plentiful. Brace yourself, Collegiate Creatives, the soup and the baked goods will be plentiful. Last night, I was invited to a Pumpkin- themed party. You were asked to bring food with pumpkin, dress up as a pumpkin […]

Chicken Chili for the Chilly Weather

The weather in Tallahassee is finally turning and I am consuming everything pumpkin, getting excited about fall-smelling candles, and opening the windows to let the cool breeze do werk. I know I haven’t posted in a while and for those followers who were at the FSPA conference that I told should look to blog every other […]

Fall in a Muffin Tin

Growing up, my family had only ever made their own pie crust or pizza dough or other baked goods. Today, I have discovered the wonderland that is Pillsbury pre-made dough. I bought a bag of frozen biscuits the other day and it was one of the best decisions I have made since buying Cinnamon Raisin […]

No Food For You!

I haven’t been shopping for food in over a week and a half. I’ve been out of town or going out just to avoid buying a whole bunch of stuff that would have gone bad awhile I was away. So, I’m done being away from Tallahassee but by the time I was hungry, Publix was […]

Home Sweet Home with Comfort Food

It’s so good being home. Coming back to clean laundry, homemade meals, no dishes to be responsible for, magically clean sheets… it is all glorious. Until you have a house and can see how much work goes into running one, you can’t truly appreciate what mom does. Thanks, mom! A After driving seven hours home, […]

An Apple a Day

When I come back to Dalton to visit the Cowan Family, there is always a request to bake. My mom makes these really great chocolate chip cookies that she’s known for but it takes a certain Susan Johnson magic that I don’t have to make them authentic. We do try, but without her, we fail. […]
