Spinach Cheese Swirls

Hello friends! Happy Fourth of July! Hope you’ve had a great day filled with barbecues and fireworks and food and more food. 🙂 I was extremely happy about not having to go to school today. Agh. Summer school is the worst! Continue reading “Spinach Cheese Swirls”

Lemon Blueberry Cupcakes

Woah. Summer is here. School is finally out and I feel a bit dazed being back in the real world of no chemistry or biology or self-destructive CS projects or infuriating (and weird) readings about Sternberg’s three component theory of love. Update: I started this post when I didn’t have school. Now I have summer school. Who invented summer school? This is an abomination. AGH. Now I’m drowning in organic chemistry and “the mathematical foundations of programming.” That doesn’t even sound interesting! (It’s not!) Maybe I should just be an art major instead….

White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookies

Avocado Shrimp Tostadas with Chipotle Crema

Hello hello, mis amigos bonitos!

Wow guys, school has started, and I am insanely tired. I wake up, drive, get on the train, get on the bus, go to school, get on the bus, get on the train (which I am on as I write this), drive home, and finally, SLEEP. My life is so hard, honestly. (Note that I do not include homework, because who does that?) But serious issue: when am I supposed to blog!? Before blogging, when am I supposed to make food to blog about!? UGH SCHOOL. I don’t think you’re going to be seeing much of me until Thanksgiving break, or maybe even Christmas break? Sigh. Wait wait hang on, back to school: today I found the quiet section of library oh my god it was so nice to study there! Okay back to what I was saying.

Wait I was still talking about school? What is my writing? How can any of you read this? (I love you all, my readers.) Since this only the first week of school, I still have a little time! Also, I had avocados, and eating avocados when they are ripe is of the utmost priority, considering they are perfect for like, four seconds of their lifespans, so obviously, I made Avocado Shrimp tostadas! Well technically I did a couple weeks ago. Oops.    Continue reading “Avocado Shrimp Tostadas with Chipotle Crema”

Oreo Cookies and Cream Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting

I’m going off to college in a week. One week until the newest chapter of my life begins, and I’m so excited and so scared. (Scared mostly because I’m probably going to take the wrong train or bus or something somewhere in the city and end up in Canada or China, but it’s cool.)

I have to say goodbye to almost all of my friends, the people that I spent all my time with these last few years, and start anew. I’ll be all on my own, as an adult in a completely different world. I can no longer wake up 10 minutes before school, roll out of bed and walk across the street in time for my first period class. I will no longer be in a familiar environment surrounded by the people I’ve known all my life. I took comfort in knowing I would see these people everyday, that I’d be right here, with everyone, that this wouldn’t change for a long time, but now that long time is over, and about this, I am sad.

I will, however, be reunited with old friends, and make plenty of new ones. I’ll be able to study whatever I choose. I’ll have the newfound freedom to do what I want and go where I want and explore and live the life that I want. The unfamiliar people and places will become familiar and for that, I can’t wait. So college, here I come! (Lame? Yes, I know. Shh.)

Okay, onto cupcakes:   Continue reading “Oreo Cookies and Cream Cupcakes with Chocolate Frosting”

Yep. That’s right. One year of blogging! Whoohooo! This calls for some celebration emojis! 🎉🎉🎉 Wow. It’s basically a party in here.

I just want to say thanks to everyone who follows and reads my blog, especially my friends, who I bother incessantly with all kinds of things about my blog, from picture proofing to “OMG read my blog because no one else is going to read it!” You guys are the best! ❤️

Now onto the good stuff. Not chocolate stuff (my regular sweet stuff) but Oatmeal Raisin Cookies that are just sooo good.  Continue reading “Classic Oatmeal Raisin Cookies+ My One Year BLOGIVERSARY”

Quinoa Stuffed Bell Peppers

I don’t do a lot of real food recipes, and I’m pretty sure I haven’t done any healthy ones either…. No wait, I did Bell Pepper Quinoa Salad. That’s healthy! Yes! I’m not a failure!  Continue reading “Quinoa Stuffed Bell Peppers”

Seven Layer Dip

Happy Fourth of July! My family and I faked the Fourth yesterday, with the barbecue and sparklers and everything. 

 
Happy birthday, America. I liked your birthday party. It let me have Seven Layer Dip. 🙂 Whoo! (Yeah, I know I’m lame, leave me alone.) There are few things in life that can make people’s mouths water, will be finished in five minutes (literally, everyone will attack the dish) and takes less than 30 minutes to make. Seven layer dip is one of these beautiful things.

   
This is a huge hit at…well…everything! And it’s so easy! If you’ve never had seven layer dip, you are seriously missing out in life. Be warned, this stuff is delicious but also filling. Try not to eat all of it because you won’t be able to eat anything else. Continue reading “Seven Layer Dip”
