Always Bars

    I like to call these bars, “Always Bars” because they can really be eaten at anytime of the day. They have protein (oats, eggs, chia seeds), fruit (apple sauce, coconut, optional: raisins), and fun (dark chocolate, cinnamon). They are not sugar free, but most of the sugar is naturally occurring in the dark […]

Educational Cookies

I have a night class each week for two hours called, Best Practices in Education. We basically learn all the up-to-date Common Core Standards and best teaching methods research is currently reporting. I enjoy the class for the most part (other than groups projects…I die a little inside when I hear a professor say group […]

Scenes from Christmas.

Christmas was excellent this year. Snow on Christmas day. A million cookies of every shape and size. Family and friends home. Christmas ham. Cozy fires in the fire-place. Family games. Movie night.

Dorm Room Fudge

I had my first baking experience in college this past Friday and it was hilarious. Obviously, my first thought was to document it for my blog. It all started Monday when my friend was constantly reminding us that her birthday was Friday. Since it was fall break this weekend, most of our friends were gone […]

Gone with the Week

Happy Fall! I don’t know about you, but it is a glorious 81 degrees where I am and I’m in love. I am done with classes for the week because tomorrow is fall break, so it’s a¬†three-day¬†weekend! I had the opportunity to go home with a friend but since I have the room to myself […]

Friends, Family, & Fall

Hey everybody! How is the last day of September treating you? I am currently enjoying a caramel latte, so I would say it’s been a pretty good day. :) This weekend was “Family Weekend” at my college and my parents came up Friday-Sunday to spoil spend time with me and get to know the campus […]
