I’m home for the weekend, so I decided to make a fall-inspired cake. Enjoy!
These were probably the most annoying desserts I’ve ever made, but they ended up turning out cute, so maybe it was worth it. Still, I think it will be a while before I try these again!

Have a good day!
I love pesto sauce!
Here I have a pesto pizza with chicken and cheese, and some angel hair spaghetti with pesto. Yum!
Have a happy weekend!
Sometimes when my mom has leftover taco meat, she makes these nachos. All you need is chips, meat, cheese, and salsa. A quick, easy, and delicious snack idea!
Hi guys! So sorry for the delay in posts…I ran out of space on my blog and I’m currently in the process of trying to figure out ways to add more posts without buying more space. Once I get this sorted out, I’ll go back to having daily (or almost daily) posts. In the meantime, here’s some 1970s style mini brownie cupcakes. Groovy!
Now that I’m back at school, I won’t have as much time to bake/cook/do crafts etc., but I intend to keep posting on here as often as I can. I have a ton of pictures of stuff I’ve made in the past that I’ll be posting now, plus (hopefully) many new things too! My friend Prianca and I made these cupcakes to give away last Valentine’s Day–some are red velvet and some are strawberry (to keep with the pink and red theme). Enjoy!
Hi everyone! I made another batch of my Double Dark Chocolate Raspberry Cookies yesterday, but this time I added one and a half teaspoons of raspberry extract (instead of 1 tsp, like in the original recipe). I think this was a good decision because the raspberry flavor was more noticeable, like I wanted it to be. Just letting you guys know about the revision in case you want to make your own!
Happy Labor Day!
I made this crumb cake as a parting gift to my mom the day before I moved back to the city for school. She’s not a big fan of chocolate, so I rarely bake anything that she really loves. This crumb cake, however, was definitely a hit with her.
Have a good weekend!
I made chocolate cupcakes that look like the Hostess ones yesterday!
I even filled them with vanilla frosting, just like the real ones:
I iced the cupcakes with chocolate frosting. Then I did the white squiggles with Wilton tip 3 and the same vanilla frosting I used for the filling. I just wikipedia’d “Hostess Cupcakes” and found out that the real cupcakes have 8 squiggles on top, but I didn’t know that when I was making mine, so some of mine have 8 and some have more. Oh well–you can still tell what they’re supposed to look like! Here’s me in the process of squiggling:
Have a good rest of the day!
This is a perfect (and easy-to-make) homemade dessert for the special person in your life. My roommates and I made these for Valentine’s Day freshman year of college. To create your own, use this recipe, however, instead of pressing the mixture into a pan, shape into hearts. Leave the treats out until they harden and maintain their shape, then decorate as desired. Rice Krispie Treats sort of became my go-to dessert when I lived in the dorms–they’re quick to make, require few ingredients, and, most importantly, they’re no bake (we had a stove, but not an oven). Looking forward to making more in the future.
I have always liked mini desserts–they’re so cute and everyone can get their own little portion. These pie pops are some of my favorite mini desserts yet! They’re an even smaller alternative to the mini apple pies I made a while back.
I didn’t make the pie crust or the filling from scratch; instead, I used Betty Crocker Pie Crust Mix (just add water!) and a can of apple pie filling (I forget the brand I used, but they’re all the same in the end, right?). I added the right amount of water to the pie crust mix, but the dough was super sticky when it was done, so I ended up having to add a lot more flour to it before I rolled it out. After rolling it out, I referred to this recipe to construct the pops. They ended up coming out pretty good, but if I had to make them again, I would:
(Why does my brother always sneak up in my pictures?)
(Cute packaging–a nice finishing touch)
These are exactly what they sound like–cupcakes that look like snow cones! Mine are red, white, and blue–perfect timing for the Olympics closing ceremony (go America!)
I saw these on stumbleupon–didn’t come up with the idea myself. I got the sprinkles and white cups at Michaels (Wilton brand) and I ordered the little wooden spoons on Amazon (search wooden craft spoons or tasting spoons). The little white cups weren’t oven-safe so I baked the cupcakes separately and then just popped them right in the cups before I started decorating.
(Before decorating–aren’t these the cutest?)
Enjoy the rest of the day!
