It’s been so long since I’ve posted and so much has happened! The past 6 months have been super crazy finishing up my dissertation, graduating, and starting a new job. But being so busy was worth it! Now that I have a steady schedule (and I’m no longer in grad school woo hoo) I’m hoping to make more regular posts.
Today was Tacolandia (oh my goodness….so much goodness) and when we got home we just layed on the couch watching tv in our food coma. Around 11pm we both started craving a sweet treat but I was too tired to actually bake something so I figured why not try a microwaveable cake! It took me about 3 minutes to whip together the batter and another minute in the microwave and tada! Dessert was served. My next goal is to make this treat SIGNIFICANTLY healthier, because….well…sugar. I have a few ideas that I’ll try our next time, but here’s what I did for this cake. Continue reading
This weekend instead of hiking we went on a beach picnic with another (awesome and super fun) couple. It was “Corgi Day” at the beach and we all love animals so we decided to go see all the corgis.

So matcha green tea… Continue reading
I remember when I lived at home there was a period of time when my little brother LOVED to eat ice cream sandwiches. There was always a stock of them in our freezer. Now I have all of this peanut butter ice cream laying around so I figured why not make ice cream sandwiches! Eating these has made me a little homesick. Can’t wait until I visit again this summer!
When I came up with the idea to make this ice cream sandwich I was going for the flavors in a tagalong cookie. Remember back when I made the vegan thin mint cookies? I said I had planned on making a pie that embodied each girl scout cookie. Welllll….that idea didn’t last too long. Vegan pies are not my friend. They never have been, but hopefully one day they will be. So far it is me;1 vegan pies;3. It’s a strained relationship but I’m working on it. Continue reading
