It’s been a little over 3 years since I started this blog. I had every intention of making an adorable little cake with crazy candles until I opened my timehop one morning and realized that my blogiversary was that day (uh oh) and that I […]

1. I had the most delicious epic cookie ice cream sandwich: Chocolate Chip Cookie, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream, Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie. AMAZING. 2. Just under 3 weeks left in Los Angeles and it’s starting to sink in. I’ve given in my official […]

I love lattes, especially when they come in mugs. It’s not a secret and my friends tease me for it, but I still get way too excited when I see that any coffee drink comes in a mug. Part of the love comes from my […]

Pumpkin Bread [Mini Loaves]

Pumpkin Bread [Mini Loaves]

I love pumpkin bread but I don’t nearly make it enough. I made it a few years ago and a draft of the recipe has been sitting in my drafts folder since Fall 2012. Yes. It’s taken me almost 2 1/2 years to finally post […]
