Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls

Apples are arguably the best fall ingredient, held in stiff competition next to pumpkin. I, personally, don’t like to pick favorites. I give an equal shot to both pumpkin and apples and let them in each shine in their way the way only the season of fall let’s them do.

Each of them benefits from a good dash of cinnamon and nutmeg, and falls perfectly into the cocoon of freshly made pie dough. Yum.

Break me off a piece of that.

Erm, a slice of that? [Read more…]

S'mores Bread Pudding

So, I just began writing a post for a different chocolate week treat. Two paragraphs in, I clicked on Facebook and saw a post for S’mores Cookies and a title exclaiming “Happy S’mores Day!”. Um, how was I unaware that August 10th is S’mores Day?

Good thing for me, I had a s’mores recipe all lined up for tomorrow so the order got a quick switch-a-roo and here we are: a s’mores recipe right in line with the days festivities.

Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread

Having high expectations can be tough. When you have high expectations, you want the best. I tend to set my expectations pretty high, and I always want things to turn out the best way that they can. So when things I do, or things that happen to me, or things that I make turn out way better than I ever could have hoped, I get pretty jazzed. These past couple of weeks, however, have managed to exceed a lot of expectations.

On Sunday, March 11th, my mom managed to score tickets to a private Katy Perry concert from my aunt. Two of my best friends, Nicole and Paige, and I all got to go and see the concert with about 150 other people. Uh, how cool is that?! Amazingly incredible. She was such a good performer. Her outfits, her hair, her singing, the atmosphere, everything exceeded any expectations I had. I even danced on stage with her. Let's get this clear: I danced on stage with Katy Perry. Sorry to brag, but it's one of my prouder moments. I went just being like “okay, this is cool. This is chill.” I left screaming “That was the most amazing thing in the whole entire world. OMG.” Because let's be real, doesn't a private Katy Perry concert break most people's Spring Break expectations?

Sometimes I have epiphanies. Often, these epiphanies involve food.

A lot of the time actually. Like, 99.998% of the time. The .002% percent that aren’t about food are typically about how I could shave my dog to get around the “no pets with fur” rule at my school, or some clever excuse as to why I don’t need to go to math. Quality thoughts running through my head. Betcha wish you had mind-reading skills now, dontcha?

Back to epiphanies about food though. This weekend I was feelin’ pumpkin. I bought a can at Whole Foods. For no good reason. Naturally, this sparked my creative juices and VOILA:

Homemade Brioche

So, a few of you have been asking where I’m going to be going to college next year.

After sleepless nights full of worry over my plans, I’ve finally made a decision. It was definitely tough – choosing between the high-ranked, “name brand” school that didn’t feel quite right and the small, little-known university on the outskirts of Seattle.

At first, I thought I would for sure be going to the first school. Ranked 17th in the country by U.S. News & World Report, located in Nashville, Tennessee, it was a dream that I got in. However…as much as I loved it, the majors didn’t draw me in, the party scene was definitely not my style, and it just didn’t feel right.
