Cooking, Baking & Cocktail Shaking

Greek Pasta Salad

Happy Easter! I hope everyone is enjoying copious amounts of Easter candy. I’ve been stuffing jelly beans, sour gummy worms, and cupcakes in my mouth all weekend. Starting tomorrow, I’m quitting cold turkey. No more candy, no more cupcakes, and no more caramel sauce in my iced coffee. I may go through sugar withdrawals,...

Iced Green Tea

Happy almost Easter, everyone! I hope all of you are enjoying time with family and friends. I know I am. My family is in town from Pennsylvania this weekend. We’ve been enjoying each others company since they arrived on Friday. Yesterday, my Aunt watched me cook and we chatted about the goings on in...

Hello, Cupcake!

I made cupcakes! I just love making cupcakes. I mean, who doesn’t adore a cupcake? They’re individual cakes that you don’t have to share. That’s right, no sharing. I’m stingy. I will not share my cupcake. Hello, get your own, there’s 23 more right over there in the cupcake holder. Geesh! I searched for...

Coconut Mojitos aka Cocojito

It’s Sunday, and that means it’s time to share our favorite recipes for #SundaySupper. Isabel from Family Foodie is the creator of #SundaySupper, and she continues to inspire and encourage us to gather up the family, sit around the table, and eat and share the love we have for one another. It’s a tradition that...

Creamy Dill Dip

It’s quite a dreary day in Baltimore. It’s cloudy, cold, and gray outside. The weather has been so erratic this season. I mean, it was just 80 degrees and sunny this past Thursday. I was so excited that I cleaned off my deck in preparation for sittin’ and sippin’ on some cold beverages while...

Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

Double Chocolate Banana Muffins

Today, because I love ya, I made muffins. These muffins combine two flavors that are meant for each other. I’m talking about chocolate and banana. If chocolate and banana were people, they’d fall in love, get married, and live happily ever after in a house with a white picket fence. These muffins are super...

Chocolate Cookies Two Ways

Chocolate Cookies Two Ways

Today was a rough day- and I mean rough! It was also my first day back to school after a week off for spring break. It’s tough going back after a week of freedom, relaxation, and baking. I really had to force myself to get out of bed and trudge off to school. What...

Strawberry Orange Mousse

Wow, spring is in the air in Baltimore, and it feels good. I don’t know about you, but I definitely had a case of the winter blues. It’s so nice to finally see the sun and feel its warmth on my ghostly white skin. Seriously, my skin is so white that it glows- and...

Coffee Cake Pound Cake

My mom and I decided to take a road trip this weekend, so we hit the open road and headed to Pennsylvania to visit my grandparents and aunt. Road trips are my favorite (as long as it’s not too far of a trip. I start to get antsy after the four hour mark). I love them...
