Homemade Vanilla Macarons

Macarons have always intimidated me! Everybody hears the horror stories of how nearly impossible they are to get perfect. My friend, Mika, had made them a few times, and so of course I wanted to try too! They are VERY finicky, and there’s many points during the process that things can go horribly wrong. Well […]

I love homemade bread. It’s so ridiculously easy to make, and a hundred times better than store bought! My mom used to make this recipe all the time when we were growing up, and I have lots of memories of eating a very warm fresh-from-the-oven slice of bread with melted butter on top. I used my […]

I don’t know about you, but when I think of the perfect Saturday morning breakfast, I think blueberry pancakes! We didn’t have any fresh blueberries, but we’re hoping to grow some soon. Frozen had to do this time! I found this recipe from The Stay At Home Chef, and it made perfectly fluffy pancakes! I’ve […]

I feel like, by definition, gingerbread houses are pretty DIY in nature anyway 😂 But I feel like I went the extra mile by actually making the gingerbread and cutting out all the pieces for the houses! I didn’t want to spend all the money on a kit, and I figured it couldn’t be that hard. […]

Two pumpkin recipes in a row! Now that it’s fall, pretty much all I do is edit and bake pumpkin treats 😉 It’s the most wonderful time of the year, which means that calories don’t count, and pumpkin EVERYTHING is in! To be honest, I’m not sure that I’ll make this recipe again. Judging them […]

It might be October 4th, but it doesn’t feel like fall in the SLIGHTEST. Yesterday had a feels-like temp of over 100! I’m sick and tired of the heat. It’s supposed to cool off greatly over the weekend, and I’m praying we don’t have to see anything over 75 until April 2020 😂 But to […]
