Mini cannoli bites


Pretty much immediately after I moved to Boston, I learned about one of its more popular dessert destinations - Mike's Pastry. Known for its generously filled cannolis (in assorted flavors) and lobster tails (a flaky pastry filled with cream), there are almost always lines pouring out the door at this bakery.

Chai tea cupcakes


Last weekend, I took a brief trip to New York City with some friends. It was great to get away from the studying and homework for a little while and enjoy sightseeing in the city. We even got to see Cinderella on Broadway!

White chocolate pumpkin snickerdoodles


Happy belated Halloween everyone! I usually don't put much effort into my costumes, but this year, someone was awesome enough to make me an amazing TARDIS hat (the light on the top blinks and everything!). All I had to do was put on my TARDIS apron and not move my head too quickly (the hat was pretty heavy).

Pumpkin spice cake pops


Recently, I feel like every blog post is starting out with me saying how busy I am. Which is 1) true, and 2) only going to get more truer as this semester goes on. These blog posts are coming a week after I bake the goods, rather than a day or two after, but I am still determined to keep up with them. The time is there - I just have to find it. Welcome to grad school!

3-ingredient Nutella cupcakes with peanut butter whipped cream


So far, grad school hasn't been the horrible, all-consuming experience as some people have described it to be, but I certainly don't have as much free time as I used to. Baking is still a priority (I haven't missed a week), but time management skills are as important as ever now.
