White Chocolate Scones with Lemon Curd

White Chocolate Scones with Lemon Curd

I love my grandpa, but the man has this one weird… habit, for a lack of a better word. He takes a love of all things lemon to an entirely different level, meaning he eats the entire lemon, seeds, rind, and all. It’s disgusting. Just thinking about it makes my teeth hurt. The man just…

Brookies with Salty Caramel Filling

In 18 days, I will know what freedom feels like. A huge burden will be lifted off of my shoulders and it won’t feel like a Jeep is sitting on my chest anymore. College has definitely been the worst part of my life so far, and I have had something legitimately emotionally devastating happen to…

Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp with Apricot Chutney

Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp with Apricot-Currant Chutney

I’ve reached a lull when it comes to school work. I have nothing urgent or pressing that absolutely must be completed for at least a week. What that means is that I’m lying in wait, anticipating that something is going to go horribly wrong. I’m waiting for the email that says something to the tune…

Chocolate Chipotle Pudding Tarts

Chocolate-Chipotle Pudding Tarts

Here’s what I have concluded from college – there comes a time during those four years (hopefully it is toward the end) when you have simply put your brain through too much and it is just physically incapable of comprehending any more information. It doesn’t even have anything to do with a lack of motivation…

Muffuletta Pasta

Picture it – Sicily 1922. It was the worst of times, it was the worst of times. It was Sicily 1922. A beautiful young woman with breasts not unlike Brigette Neilson, except hers moved when she skipped, comes walking down a picturesque country road when suddenly a yellow Rolls Royce pulls up and blocks her path….

Green Chile Skillet Queso

If you knew you were going to die tomorrow, what would you eat for your final meal? I have a sweet tooth, but I also love me some good Texas BBQ. That’s the only good thing about dying – you don’t have to choose. I would definitely request a dying brunch consisting of a short…

Cornmeal Waffles with Balsamic Strawberry Sauce

Cornmeal Waffles with Balsamic Strawberry Sauce

I recently binged on Parks and Recreation in its entirety. Those are some depressingly relatable characters, am I right? I definitely have a lot of Ron Swanson in me. We both hate people. I have some April in me. She also hates people. I have some Ben in me as well. He too has disdain…

Chile-Braised Brisket Tostadas

T-minus 36 days until I am released from the hell that I call college and many people around me call ‘that place that flips her bitch switch.’ Whoever decided that these are supposed to be the best years of your life was clearly not all there. The only thing that is really helping me through these last…

Hazelnut Cream Cupcakes

[WARNING: MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD] If you are like me and watch a lot of TV, you’ve probably had a hard few weeks. That poor little girl completely lost it on The Walking Dead. Some creepy ninja thing stabbed Allison in the stomach (and me in the heart, consequently) on Teen Wolf. Will was killed off…

Greek Panzanella Salad

I took this online survey a while ago that matches you with potential roommates, since I’m going to need one when I move to New York for culinary school (!!!) Some of the questions are very specific, which I guess is a good thing, but I have a hard time believing that most people are…

Mini Cinnamon Raisin Coffee Cakes

Mini Cinnamon-Raisin Coffee Cakes

Let it be known that there is no word in the English dictionary that can be used to describe the pain and anguish that a 20-something girl that grew up in the mid-90′s to early-2000′s feels when she discovers that The Backstreet Boys are going on tour and then realizes that she won’t be attending….
