Honey Roasted Nectarines

Over the past few weeks, I’ve found myself buying tons of fresh fruit. I might seem pretty virtuous filling my shopping basket with various punnets and pieces but the reality is that once I’m home, the majority of it seems to end up as part of some dessert! 147 more words

Baking Through the Alphabet: L is for Lemon French Macarons

Guess what–

I’m officially a college graduate!

(pc: Raymond Tay)

In the past three years, I’ve moved away from home, grown tremendously at a home church and found a new one along the way, built and lost friendships and relationships, met great brothers and sisters who’ve impacted me more than they’ll ever know, lived with roommates who I can’t imagine life without (holla, 1128!), learned a lot less about business economics than I would have expected, gone through probably 50 pounds of butter and hiked up the electricity bill, gotten a job which I’ll probably stay at for the next few years at least, joined an on-campus fellowship which I am very thankful for, had a strong support system back at home (and gained a future brother-in-law too!), hermit-ed and broken out of my shell (though it’s still a work in progress), started a food blog, and so many more things that I would like to say but shouldn’t list out here. 1,253 more words

Coconut White Chocolate Cheesecake

The grandkids are gone so I can put away the chicken nuggets, mac & cheese, frozen pizza and get back to sugar. Since we have been entertaining kids/grandkids and have tried to cook all their favs while they were in town, we tried to convince them that we were “giving up” healthy foods just for them, when in reality, the boxed mac & cheese was a delight as was the pizza that graced out table several nights during that time. 331 more words
