Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins

It’s pretty crazy that after almost six years of blogging, I don’t have a zucchini muffin or bread recipe up here yet. Believe it or not I actually do eat a lot of vegetables (a girl can’t live off sweets alone!) and with all the huge zucchinis showing up in gardens and markets, I had to take advantage. Baking with zucchini is very popular because it adds a lot of moisture and substance to things like muffins and quick breads without any vegetable taste ....more

Vegan Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

For those of you who have been following this blog for awhile, you know that one of my best friends from growing up (that I’ve known now for 23 years!) is vegan and has a vegan food blog too. I’ve made a bunch of...more

Banana Pudding

Okay, last southern-style dessert recipe from Sara’s shower, I promise! If you haven’t realized it by now, I definitely went a little too over the top with the amount of desserts I made for the party (photo cookie favors, flower cupcakes, and now this pudding!). I wanted to do key lime pie shooters or something too, but then I realized there are only 24 hours in a day and people only need so much sugar at one event ....more

Easy Flower Cupcakes

When my friend Sara chose her BFF with a baking blog to be her maid of honor (me!), she had to know there would be a few special sweet touches at the various events leading up to the wedding. It’s just what I do! I made some white chocolate popcorn that coordinated with her bachelorette theme and for the shower I probably overdid it ....more

Bridal Shower Photo Cookies

Sorry for the radio silence the past week, did you even notice I skipped a week of posting?? Blasphemous, I know. Ryan and I got back from our trip to Scotland and Iceland early last week and I immediately started my new job as a real life pediatric dentist (yay!) so things have been quite hectic ....more

Mini Cookie Brownie Burgers

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July weekend!! I’m still abroad, exploring Iceland now (follow me on instagram for updates!), but wanted to continue with a streak of patriotic treats here on the blog since Americana pride can last all summer long. There’s nothing like a mid-summer BBQ and these tiny little treats are the PERFECT dessert for any cook out this summer ....more

Red, White, and Blue Berry Scones

Residency is over, and before I start working officially for the rest of my life, I decided I needed a bit of a vacation. After 23 years of school and training, I figured a celebration vacation was easily justified. So Ryan and I have planned a trip to Scotland and Iceland over the next two...more

Hell’s Kitchen Sink Cupcakes

With only one week of residency left, I’m sharing a recipe today that commemorates the neighborhood Ryan and I have been living in the past two years. When I got accepted to Columbia and started working all the way up at 168th St, I was a bit disappointed that living further downtown like a lot of my college friends would be extremely inconvenient for my commute. We settled on the area known as Hell’s Kitchen, part of Midtown West, close to Columbus Circle, Central Park, and the A train, which gets me to work in under 30...more

Berry Crisp with Oatmeal Cookie Topping

Another berry recipe this week, because ohmigosh berries!! We had a BBQ on our friend’s terrace over the weekend, and when I was thinking of what kind of dessert to bring, I couldn’t think of anything better than a berry crisp. What a great excuse to use up some of summer’s best offerings and enjoy them in NYC’s...more

S’Mores Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

After three weekends in a row of traveling, I’m so excited to be spending the next three weekends in NYC, enjoying the warm weather and soaking up my last few weeks in my residency program. As you’ve probably gathered from previous posts and Instagram photos, I’m pretty obsessed with my...more
