toasted brown butter rice krispie treats


FINALS WEEEEEEEK! (insert screaming and bone crunching noises)
I hope you'll forgive me for making this short; I have to go study :(
Two more days until the glory of second semester senior year!

These guys are perfect finals week fare. They take all of 15 minutes, 4 ingredients and one large pan to make. They travel beautifully for stress-induced snacking on the go, so they are prime candidates for between-test energizing.

fresh cranberry, ginger and vanilla bean scones


Happy new year, friends! Also, happy end of college-app-season to me!! So yes, sorry for the lack of posts, but I was crazy busy writing essay after essay over the holidays. Though applications did get very tedious and sometimes made me want to cry and eat buttery foods, I've definitely come out of them with a greater understanding of myself and my future. Writing a whole portfolio of essays essentially all on different angles of you really forces you to get creative with how you look at yourself. Again, though, I cannot stress enough how happy I am to be DONE!
