April is for Showers, June is for Downpours: Roasted Tomato Pasta Sauce

In Florida, rain during the summer is a part of life. Rain boots are a must, the mini umbrella is a staple in most packpacks, and the freak monsoon is never too unexpected. See, unlike most, I’m a fan of rainy days- my bed is comfy and Mad Men keeps me company. In order to […]

Cinco de Cupcake: Margarita Cupcakes

So I think one of the best things about America is that we can make a holiday out of anything. I don’t particularly like St. Patrick’s Day or Halloween and Cinco de Mayo is another one of those days that I didn’t understand until I was older that it was just an excuse to drink! […]

Looking Forward to Lemons: Sneak Peek for this Week

I’m fairly certain that I have started all of the past few blog posts with the same ol’- “I’m sorry for being lame at posting- I’ll get better, I promise!” But things have only spiraled into things being due and projects taking over my life and looking for a new place to live for next […]

It felt more like a chore than something I should enjoy. So, I have been cooking a lot and thinking a lot and it seems like a pattern- […]

Fall Favorites: Apple Crisp

When your day is bad, bake. That’s my solution. The wonderful thing about college is that all your roommates are up and don’t mind you baking at midnight, especially if it means they get to indulge in the treat. Baking helps me unwind and when Fall means the height of apple season, I automatically turn […]

One Nice Dinner: Tasty Tortellini Bake

Food is great, friends are even better. When I have the opportunity to cook for them, I go all out. The best is when the dinner is impromptu and the more knocks on the door means more merriment! The most important thing, though, is to have enough food. It’s really lame when the glasses of […]

Brunch for Lunch: An Omelette How-To

Sometimes brunch just happens. One text leads to another and soon everyone is bringing juice and eggs and muffins over! Sunday is a lazy day and spending it with friends and food is a grand idea.
