When Life Gives you Lemons…Make Bread

Good morning foodies! Today I woke up early  (yes I do act like a real adult on occasion) and felt like baking. Guess what? It didn’t result in a hideously disfigured culinary disaster!

It’s Taco Time!

Gelato… Ciao bello

Happy Summer Solstice everyone! It’s officially the first day of my favorite season! Unfortunately for me, warm weather is just one more excuse for me to eat ice cream. I’ve been trying soooo hard not to eat ice cream like every single day.  Still trying to achieve that Summer body ya know? Well, the other day…

It’s National Blueberry Cheesecake Day!

Happy National Blueberry Cheesecake Day! In honor of the day I made…blueberry muffins. Yeahhh…it’s at least something with blueberry in it. Ok here’s the thing, I just finished making blueberry muffins and was randomly scrolling through Twitter and discovered that it’s what??? National Blueberry Cheesecake Day! Geeze that’s a mouthful. We’re going to make this an acronym folks….

Did Someone Say Brunch?

Brunch is probably one of the greatest concepts known to man. I feel like it was made for people like me: people that don’t always feel like being real adults and occasionally start their day after 10 am…okaaay sometimes noon. And because Brunching (yeah I just created a new verb) is becoming so trendy,  it’s…

My Scoop’s Bigger Than Yours…

Aggghhh who’s ready for Summer?! 🙂 I am! Me! This girl right here! It’s not feeling like Summer quite yet in Pennsylvania but I just can’t take it any longer. I’ve gotta break out the flip-flops. This is exactly why I need to go home guys. I belong in San Diego, I’m not about this east coast…

Coney Island Cravings

Ok so this isn’t from THE Coney Island (Random fact: I’ve never been to New York. Crazy right?). This cheese laden creation comes from Coney Island in Tulsa, Oklahoma. This little spot has been serving up hot fresh chili-cheesiness since 1926. What we have here is The Cheese Coney. It may look like your run of…

¡Dulce Dulce!

I live for Krispy Kreme doughnuts. I’ve defended Krispy Kreme doughnuts. Anytime someone has tried to rant about how amazing Dunkin’ Donuts is, I’ve had to say, “Uhhh excuse me, Dunkin’s got nothin’ on Krispy Kreme.” They just taste lighter and yummier and just…I don’t know, they’re just better. I’ll always be team Krispy Kreme but when I’m…
