Peach Pie Cupcakes


Facebook kindly reminded me this morning that I had been at MIT for a year now, showing me a picture of my roommate and I posing with the mascot, Tim the beaver. On one hand, it's kind of hard to believe that it's already been a year - it felt like the months flew by! On the other hand, I also somehow feel like I've been in Cambridge forever and that I'm definitely used to my life here now.

Strawberry macarons


Macarons are one of my favorite things to bake. Yes, they can be a little time consuming and require some planning, but there are so many different flavors and decorations that can be done with them! Today's flavor is strawberry!

Key Lime Pies


Baking in my new kitchen has been great, but while I've been making a lot of things, I haven't been as good about updating the blog with the recipes. July turned out to be a relatively busy month, between settling into the new house, traveling, lab, and just general life stuff.

Coconut macaroons


So life hasn't gotten any less busy since my last post - my roommates and I recently moved from the grad dorms into a real house! Packing everything up was a little hectic, but with the help of my generous friends, we managed to get everything out the door, into the car, and over to the new place.

Piña colada cupcakes


It's been awhile since my last update, huh? The last month or so has been relatively hectic - finishing up crazy class projects, figuring out what I'm actually doing in lab, and attempting to study for my grad school qualification exams. Despite all of this, I still managed to find time to bake at least once a week, but just wasn't able to find time (or motivation) to post any of the recipes.
