To kick off the year, Sarah and I decided that this year would be the year of more adventures. For a long time now we have always written down the things we would like to do. However, it recently occurred to us that rather than have random jots, we should compile all the things (big and small) into a “Bucket List Friends” list (shoutout to the Bucket List Family). This list contains all of the adventures and must do’s that we would like to experience this year (or in the years to come). Which means that as we travel and experience new things, you will get a chance to adventure vicariously through these posts! Have something that needs to be put on our Bucket List? Please comment below, we would love for your suggestions! Read More!
Hello Fellow Bakers,
If you cannot tell by now, I am on a major cookie rush. Not only have I shared with you a recipe for matcha cookies, but I have also shared with you the recipe for the best cookie ever . I do not think my love for cookies will be going away anytime soon, because today I share with you a recipe for the classic and iconic black and white cookie.
Hello Fellow Bakers!
The cookie obsession continues…and so does the matcha obsession…
I cannot get enough of cookies right now. There is something to be said of the humble cookie. It never disappoints. These cookies I am going to share with you today are the perfect new addition to your cookie jar.
Not only are they a cookie=WIN!
but… they have matcha in them= DOUBLE WIN!!
Hello Fellow Bakers,
Today’s post is a bit different than usual. Rather than a great recipe or a story, I decided to share with you the cookbooks that are on my MUST BUY list. These are cookbooks of people I have been following, am obsessed with, or greatly admire. All are reasonably affordable, which is great because who wants to spend $40+ on a cookbook…certainly not me. Without further ado here are the cookbooks that need to make it on your list right now!
Hello Fellow Bakers,
We need to talk. I have stumbled upon the holy grail of cookies. And you need to know about it and you need to make them ASAP! In fact, if you don’t want to read the post and get straight to baking, I won’t blame you. You jump right on down to the recipe and get going! These cookies are just that amazing! Read More!
As of recent I have visited the great city (or dare I say the greatest city in the world…) of NYC. When planning this trip it was important to me to keep in mind all that NY has to offer…like AMAZING FOOD PLACES! To be 100% real I am a major foodie and where I live cannot compare to the creativity and variety that NY has to offer. As of all things in life, the best is saved for last. So DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT miss the greatest place of all (which is found at the end). If you read anything, scroll to the bottom. You will not want to miss out on it!
Fellow bakers and macaron obsessed people!!!! This one is for you!
This summer I had the opportunity to go to NYC! I have to pinch myself every time I think about my time there because it was truly amazing! I was blessed enough to do so many amazing things from visiting the Museum of Natural History, seeing Wicked (OMG I could go on and on and on about how stunningly incredible that show was), and scouring the streets of NY for unique places and matcha; but out of all those great moments nothing can compare to my visit to THE Dana’s Bakery! For a whole morning to afternoon I got to live out one of my dreams and it was everything I could have ever imagined if not more! So want to hear all the details! Keep reading!
It has been awhile, but as you all know school in the spring gets to be a bit crazy! Now that Sarah and I are both out of school we are really ready to enjoy the SUMMER! Being away from a kitchen for a whole semester is killer, especially when all you want to do is bake macarons. However, I’m back in the kitchen and ready to share with you a new macaron perfect for summer…Strawberry Lemonade Macarons!
Hello Fellow DIY-ers!
As many of you know, I currently live in a dorm on my campus (Southeastern University). Decorating in a dorm space is one of the most exciting and frustrating things I have done. I absolutely love to fill my space with things that remind me of family, fun times, and at the same time make the room feel cozy. At the same time, creating in a small space can have its challenges. As semesters fly by, I feel more confident that my space not only reflects my personality, but is also a place that I can unwind and feel at home in. It is my own personal space that I can dream, study (eww), and hang with friends. When I got back to campus after Christmas break, I was completely shocked at the state of my room. It was functional, but needed some serious renovations and re-styling. That is where the DIY Tassel Wall came in! Keep reading for this fun, easy, and super-cute DIY. Read More!
Hello fellow Disney lovers!
I have missed you all. It has been quite some time since my last post but boy do I have some stories for you! My time away from the blog has been nothing short of eventful! There have been so many fun Disney trips and I am so excited to share them with you all!
The other day my dad was planning a little trip for him and my youngest sister to go to Disney for the weekend. He had a million questions for me because around my house they think I am some Disney expert. Hey, I’m not saying I am but I’m not going to put down their compliments! Anyway, I was helping him plan, get the Fast Passes and telling him all the ways to work the system; the best places to go for lunch, which shows to see, the whole shebang!
Haley and I are big planners. Even on a day that was so laid back and had no commitments, we couldn’t help but plan our day down to the minute. So, I am going to let you in on some of our planning strategies for how to make a Disney day the BEST possible!
