February was a BIG month for me! I *finally* got to go to Cuba over my winter reading week and I'm still reeling from the experience. As you may know, Cuba's WiFi situation is a bit weird, you pay for cards that allow you to log in at WiFi hotspots. There are hotspots pretty much … Continue reading February in Instagram! ✴
Taylor tumblred about the cookies wayyyyy back in the good old days of 2014. Ever since, I've baked these bad boys on the first snow of the year. Ladies and gentlemen and everyone in between, today IS IN FACT the first snow of the year. That's right, October 27 and she's snowin' up a storm … Continue reading Baking | Taylor Swift’s Chai Sugar Cookies
Hi friends! Today I thought I would share with you the baking recipe that started it all - the classic chocolate chip cookies. The ones you bake with your mom when your little (and contribute only by putting in a teaspoon of vanilla and eating all the extra chocolate chips). This recipe was the first … Continue reading Classic Chocolate Chip Cookies
For obvious reasons, this is my go-to pick me up cookie recipe. I love love LOVE using old recipes that have been passed down generations, it makes the baking a more intimate and meditative experience in my opinion because you (after awhile) know the recipe like the back of your hand, and you feel connected … Continue reading Grandma’s Peanut Butter Cookie Recipe

I tend to take a little baking break in the summer because I never want to turn my oven on in … Continue reading Baking | My First Pie!

They're like little homemade granola bars in the shape of a ball that are jam packed with good things like protein and … Continue reading Raw (No Bake) Energy Balls – Vegan Option!
Hi friends! Today I'm going to talk about something I've probably mentioned in passing before - being a vegetarian. I don't really talk about it too much but I'm nearing my 10th year now and I've seen a lot of interest in vegetarianism and veganism on the Internet recently. I'm going to give a bit … Continue reading Lifestyle | 10th Year A Vegetarian
Aloha pals! This year I've been uploading a series of Instagram posts to give you guys a bit of a better idea of what I've been up to throughout the month outside of blogging 🙂 If you've been a follower for awhile I'm sure you may have noticed that I've been a bit uninspired lately... … Continue reading April in Instagram!
I've been really wanting to try baking macarons ever since I started baking. Macarons, crepes, and chocolate covered strawberries are my all-time favourite desserts so I really want to master all three. Problem is: macarons are super hard to make, so I've been bidding my time before I attempt them. You need really precise measurements … Continue reading Baking | Laudurée French Macarons
