Sun and Fun: Lemon Kiss Cupcakes with Whipped Cream Frosting

Ready for a super easy cupcake recipe that will get you a zillion compliments at a summer brunch. Or a party that you wear a sun dress to. Or maybe even late at night when you’re in your PJ’s. I’m a little tired. Amongst the final projects for the end of the semester, I’m a […]

Dip it Good: Greek Veggie Dip

Dip is my weakness. Chips seem to disappear with salsa, crackers vanish in the presence of ranch dip and vegetables can never seem to stick with hummus! It’s kind of a problem. This dip, however, is a great healthy alternative to the standard sour cream and ranch packet mixture (however delicious that may be sometimes). I know […]

Party Like it’s 1921: Brittany’s Kahlua Birthday Cake

Pizza Pre-Game

There is no better food than pizza before going out to party while in college. Or any day. Making your own is fast, cheap and is easily shared between friends. I totally get ordering pizza- online ordering is one of the greatest/worst things ever invented- but it can take forever and you either have to […]

Pass the Panini!

Paninis can be as diverse as the people that construct them. Tonight, my housemates and I celebrated Labor day by slaving over these delicious hot-press sandwiches made with various ingredients. Paninis can call for some snobbery, though. They take some high-brow ingredients and some TLC. Expensive cheese and specialty mushrooms make for the tastiest sandwiches so […]
