No Bake Cookies and Cream Bars

Hello everyone! I’ve missed you all. Life has gotten extremely crazy, but don’t fear, I’m still baking, cooking, and drinking my experiments. I promise that you’ll see more of me, but as you know, I have been busy getting ready for my first full-time teaching job. If you follow me on IG, you know that I haven’t quite given up my Starbucks gig either! I worked this morning. All I’m going to say is have mercy on your favorite Starbucks baristas. We do the best job we can when there are lines in Drive Thru and the lobby.

Spicy Cilantro Lime Hummus

Change. It’s something that I’m constantly struggling to process and accept. On the outside, I’m generally calm and collected, but inside my brain is on overload. “What ifs” puddle my mind. Worst-case scenarios muddle my positivity. I have a hard time talking about change, so it’s usually Niagra Falls waterworks on Joshua’s shoulder when I face my fears about change. Cry it out.

Blueberry Loaf

I had the pleasure of meeting some really great people this weekend! I’m lucky to have a boyfriend whose family includes me in their adventures. His mother is a sweetheart and I’d had some of the best experiences making jams, cannolis, and fruit filling with her. She’s even mentioned pasta making! I’m all for that.


This past weekend, Joshua and I were talking about going blueberry picking because it was the last weekend to “Pick-Your-Own”. Joshua’s mom had the same idea as we did, so we ended up meeting her and her friend, Ginger, for a day of picking.

Coconut Graham Lime Bars (Gluten Free)

Hi everybody! So, I totally meant to bake and share this recipe with you last week. It just didn’t happen. I worked the rest of the work week after getting back from Florida and by the end of the day, all I wanted to do was nap. In other words, I apologize for not getting this recipe out earlier because it’s darn good.


A few years ago when I went to visit my grandparents on the east coast of Florida, we went to this tavern-like restaurant. Well, dessert came with the meal and I decided to try something new to me. Key Lime Pie. Holy moly. I fell in love with the tartness of the custard and the sweetness of the graham cracker crust. Love at first bite if you will.
