I’ve always been of the opinion that fudge should be easy to make – like very easy. Never ever have I bothered to fuss over a candy thermometer for good fudge, because it’s so unnecessary and stress-inducing.

My old, unhealthy favorite fudge recipe was pretty easy, but my new super easy refined sugar free + vegan fudge recipe is even EASIER. Like, no cooking necessary. Just melting the coconut oil. That’s my kind of easy. [Read more…]

It's the perfect holiday treat.Back in high school, when I first start started experimenting in the kitchen and churning out tons of treats, I became infatuated with making fudge.

During the holiday season, I would make a whole bunch of batches, in all sorts of flavors, but most of them got sprinkled with a generous dusting of flaky Maldon sea salt – my newest obsession at the time, and one that still continues to this day. [Read more…]

This quick and easy fudge recipe is a no-mess way to enjoy s'mores.Weather in Seattle has not been my friend recently. When I first moved into my apartment I was stoked on my light situation – a living room with an entire glass wall that gets direct light for half the day? Yes, please! In the summer, I struggled with having too much light. I would be blinded by the sun in my eyes as I stood inside taking photos.

Oh, how I miss those days. They are so long gone. Back in summer, I could be taking photos until 5 or 6 PM…now, the light is totally gone for the day by 4 PM at the latest – but that’s not the main problem. The wall of windows that used to let in tons of light now barely lets in any, but that’s cause there is none, except for the occasional hour where the sun will break through the clouds to grace us with it’s presence.

This Easy Rocky Road Fudge is rich, creamy, and comes together in less than 10 minutes with just 5 ingredients!One of my favorite things about baking is being able to give my baked goods away. Giving people desserts and treats that I create is how I show appreciation, and how I show people I care about them. I say thank you with a batch a cookies, get well soon with a batch of brownies, and constantly make treats just for the ones that I love. As a relatively introverted person in my day to day life, baking is how I connect with people.

It’s something I can get excited about, and it’s something I can talk to people about, and best of all, it’s something that I can share. And during the holidays? I totally have an excuse to make an obscene amount of cookies and candies and baked goods galore, package them up in cute little boxes with bows and ribbons, and send them off to the people who have helped me this year, the people I’m grateful for, and the friends that I care about.

This is a coffee cake. No, not a coffee cake like the one your thinking of. This doesn’t have major crumbs on top, with cinnamon streusel and stuff. This is legit coffee-flavored cake.

I don’t know why I’ve never seen this before! I had never had a coffee-flavored cake, but after the kind people over at Gevalia offered me some coffee and tea to try, the first thing I got into my head to make with the coffee was coffee-flavored cake. I had a ton of other ideas of what to do with it as well, but because I’d never had a coffee-flavored cake, I needed to do it. [Read more…]

So, classes are starting to get into full swing and the reading is beginning. This semester, I’m taking Business in the International Context (which is super interesting already), Intermediate Spanish (let’s hope I get better at that), Accounting (bleh…math), and Intro to Creative Fiction Writing. About that last one, I’m really, really excited for it.

Clearly, I like to write, or I wouldn’t share embarrassing, exposing, and random stories about my life with a group of (mostly) strangers. For our first night of reading, we had to read an excerpt from Bird by Bird by Anne Lamott called “Shitty First Drafts”. Truly, it was hilarious, and wildly enlightening, because I realized that what I write for you guys is my shitty first drafts. [Read more…]
