Who doesn’t love The Pioneer Woman! Not only are her recipes easy, but they are super delicious. I’ll admit, I’m not a fan of EVERYTHING she makes because some of it is way too southern country for me. hah! I prefer her recipes that can be made last minute with whatever ingredients you already have at home.

I was watching her show the other day on the Food Network; she was making lunch for a birthday celebration. Read More »

Mini Raspberry-White Chocolate Cheesecakes

When we think of cheesecake, we often assume it’s really hard to make or too complex of a recipe. In actuality, it’s one of the easiest desserts to make and looks quite elegant. There are tons of cheesecake recipes with a number of variations to make it customizable. This particular cheesecake didn’t require any baking, so it was as easy as combining all the ingredients and storing it in the freezer until you are ready to serve. Read More »

Twisted Nutella Pastry

My life motto is pretty simple- NUTELLA IS EVERYTHING!! If there’s one thing I always make sure I have in my pantry, it’s a big ol jar of Nutella. I can never get enough of baking with Nutella because the possibilities really are endless. Not only can you make so much with that one ingredient but you can use the spread on toast, fruit, etc. It goes well with pretty much everything and anything, you can even eat it straight from the jar. Read More »

One of my favorite things about downtown San Francisco is all the bakeries that are there. Whenever I visit, I always have the hardest time deciding between which bakery to go to since they’re all equally amazing. My very first time in San Fran, I went to a bakery for breakfast and decided to go for a cream cheese blueberry pastry and it was just amazing!! Read More »

Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing

Guys, I don’t even know where to start with these cookies. They are simply OUT OF THIS WORLD amazing. I tried my ‘test’ cookie and ended up eating 3 or 4, they are super addictive.

I’ve always considered myself more of a cook than a baker, mainly because I prefer eyeballing measurements rather than an exact measure. With cooking, you can get away with not using exact measures because you can always improvise. Read More »

There’s something about cookies that have a very calming effect to them. They are the ultimate comforting food, perfect for all situations. You just broke up with your boyfriend and your friends show up with freshly baked cookies. You had a rough day at school, but your mom bakes cookies and everything feels better. Cookies have a certain healing power to them, not only because they are so chocolatey and delicious, but because they take us back to how we felt when we ate them in an unpleasant situation.

We all have those days where nothing seems to be going right; where nothing seems to be helping. All you want to do is sit on your couch with your pup, watch some Friends, and stuff your face with comfort food.

I had one of those days yesterday- I put on Friends (the ultimate mood fixer) and was about to have cookies and milk until I thought, why not make my own comfort food. For me, baking (and cooking) fixes everything. It’s that one thing that gets your mind off of everything and instantly lifts you up (especially when the end result is yummy). Read More »
