Oatmeal raisin peanut butter chocolate chip cookies


The students from my department put on a talent show this week, and as my talent, I entered six dozen baked goods for everyone to taste. Not really a performance talent, but no one in the audience was complaining!

Triple chocolate coconut cupcakes (for Easter!)


So the month of March just slipped by, didn't it? Between school, life, and lab, I did manage to find plenty of time to bake, but unfortunately never got around to documenting it into this blog. It's a shame because I really wanted to show off the MIT beaver cake pops I made for recruitment weekend, the ginger apple pear pie I made for Pi Day, and the Irish Car Bomb cupcakes I made for St. Patrick's Day, but it didn't make sense to post them after the relevant holiday was long over.

Cinnamon Nutella muffins


"What's the difference between a cupcake and a muffin?"

That was the question we mused over as we munched on these little pastries. The general consensus was that cupcakes are sweeter than muffins. Also, that cupcakes were more cake-like and muffins were more bread-like (and could be used for savory flavors as well). These muffins though, were quite sweet as they were pretty thoroughly dunked in cinnamon sugar and filled with Nutella.

Lemon meringue pie


I love pie (as should everyone), but they aren't really my favorite thing to make. With the ultimate Pi Day of 3/14/15 coming up though, I feel like it's something I should learn how to make better. Here's one of my attempts at that!

Snowball cookies


With all the snow outside, it was only appropriate that I bake something honoring the winter. So today, we have snowball cookies!
