New blog - AllyVerbNoun

I've decided to expand my baking blog to lifestyle blog (including cooking, travel, photography, etc), and I've also decided to move from Blogger to Wordpress to host my blog. I'll be giving my recipes here a makeover on the new blog - check it out!

Bourbon Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

I'm not a fan of bourbon at all (too strong for my taste), but last week, I ended up getting a bottle to make a tasty-looking bourbon molasses pork recipe. It turned out great, but now I have this giant bottle of bourbon that I'm certainly not going to drink!

Lemon Ricotta Cookies

My new favorite weekly activity is going to the local farmer's market on Saturdays. This market sells the leftover "ugly" fruit and vegetables that groceries and restaurants have rejected. Usually this means incredible deals - whole boxes of fruit for a dollar, huge bunches of kale for a few bucks - so I've started to get all my produce from here.

Chocolate Filled Donuts

The plan last week was to make donuts and then blog about them - except the donuts turned out...very funny looking. They were baked, not fried, and didn't have that nice golden color I was going for. In an attempt to add color, I used my kitchen torch on them. That didn't go over so well.

S'mores cookies

Last weekend, I had plans to go camping in Acadia National Park with the roommates. It was something that I was really looking forward to, but I somehow got terribly sick. It's summer and it was just a cold, but it left me barely able to get out of bed for days. So camping was definitely out.
