These are the breakfast muffins of my dreams, and if you’re a coffee lover too, probably yours.

My days recently have needed a lot of coffee. I’ve just been going recently. I had finals week, and then graduation, and as you’re reading this (if that’s between 5/21-5/26, that is), I’m at Sasquatch music festival at the Gorge. Five long nights of concert going and shenanigans, it’s bound to be a great time – but I know I’m coming back exhausted. [Read more…]

This Bunny Tracks Ice Cream Pie has a layer of rich, fudgy brownie, topped with peanut butter chocolate ganache and a thick layer of Bunny Tracks Ice Cream!So, it happened. This past Sunday, May 17th, I graduated from the University of Puget Sound with a degree in International Business and four years of experience, life lessons, college party stories, and an uncountable numbers of pages written under my belt.

I was surrounded by family and friends that I loved, and my time in college culminated with an unforgettable weekend. I couldn’t be more grateful for the people that have surrounded me throughout my life, supported me, and gotten me here, to right now. [Read more…]

Skip the campfire and whip up a batch of S'mores Cookies! Made with graham cracker cookie dough, chocolate chips & marshmallow bits, these s'mores cookies taste just like your favorite summer treat so you can have s'mores year round.It’s my last Monday as a college student. My last finals week, my last week being able to claim ‘student’ when someone asks about my occupation, my last week living surrounded by people my age. It feels like my last everything.

I know, I know – it’s just the beginning. I need to be looking forward to the real world, and getting excited about what lies ahead in the future. For a little while though, I just need to be nostalgic and reflect on the damn good four years that have passed by in a blink.  [Read more…]

Crunchy toasted hazelnuts and Nutella make these chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies even more drool worthy!This is going to be short and sweet, 1) because my thesis needs to be turned into the printer tonight and I need to finish (OMG), and 2) because these cookies are so darn good they don’t need a whole lot of explanation. Let’s not dwell on that first point, alright?

Also – how much of a procrastinator does it make me sound like that I’m writing a post instead of my thesis? I just really had to share this cookie recipe. You guys were asking for it! We won’t dwell on that either. [Read more…]

This Chocolate Malt Mocha Crunch Ice Cream is a luscious chocolate ice cream flavored with chocolate malt and coffee, with crunchy malt balls and a chocolate ganache swirl! No ice cream machine requiredHomemade ice cream seems like a total pain. Making the custard, tempering eggs, waiting for things to cool, hoping things don’t curdle…it gets too time consuming and stressful. Ice cream should be fun! What if I told you I made this ice cream from start to finish (excluding freezing time, of course) in about 10 minutes?

It’s true. If you have a mixer to whip cream and a way to melt chocolate, you’ve got a way to make ice cream. This recipe uses a base of sweetened condensed milk folded in with whipped cream. The result makes a luscious, creamy, soft ice cream that you won’t be able to stop eating. [Read more…]

These S'mores Brownies are super fudgy chocolate brownies swirled with marshmallow fluff and milk chocolate chips, baked on a graham cracker crust and topped with toasted mini marshmallows.I want to write a freaking novel about these s’mores brownies, because they’re so ridiculously good that they deserve it. I also want to tell you about my trip to Cabo, the good times, and the disasters that ensued. Disaster being: phone stolen, which meant me being disconnected from the world with no phone and no computer for a week. That’s mighty hard for a food blogger whose used to being connected 24/7, but in all honesty…it was pretty nice to have a break. Except for the coming back to 500+ emails part.

I really do want to tell you all about it all, but yesterday morning I woke up with a nasty sickness and have been bed-ridden and miserable (after my flight back to Seattle…not a fun flight) ever since. I’m all medicated now, but definitely still feeling way less than 100%, so we’re going to skip right to talking about how amazing these brownies are. Luckily for me, I’m sure you don’t need much convincing. Just look at the gooey-ness on these babies! [Read more…]

These caramel center makes this easy, one-bowl recipe even more delicious.These muffins aren’t really the kind of muffin that you enjoy as a healthy breakfast. This is more of a decadent dessert muffin, or the perfect Sunday morning brunch indulgence. And oh my goodness, is it indulgent.

Despite all the sweet, delicious flavors going on here, one special ingredient stands out: the chocolate chips, but mostly because these are not any ordinary chocolate chips. These chocolate chips are filled with caramel. Seriously, each little chip has gooey caramel inside of it. These beauties are the product of Nestle Toll House, and the DelightFulls come in four flavors – caramel (mmm), peanut butter, mint, and cherry. [Read more…]
