I’m dreaming of a White Christmas (Cookie)…

But seriously… it would actually be nice if there was snow on the ground right now, Mother Earth. 20 days until Christmas and Bex is just not feeling the spirit quite yet hence why my roommates and I are finally going to get our Christmas tree tomorrow accompanied by some eggnog icecream at good ‘ol Stewarts. …

I just couldn’t Reese’s-t putting candy in my breakfast…

I’ve already decided that I am giving up peanut butter for lent next year. Yup, 100% positive. It’s a done deal. I don’t know what has gotten into me but living in a house with peanut butter addicts this year has changed Bex. It made me think…hmmm…I never really used to indulge in peanut butter that much. I…

Let’s Give ‘Em Pumpkin to Talk About…

Less than 24 hours until Bex gets to go home for her first ever mid-semester break in all of college history! Here I come Penfield, NY! I can’t wait to see my lovely family, enjoy the joy and comfort of home and share the world of Rochester, NY with my good friend, Cate who is…

L-O-A-F

L-O-A-F By Rebecca Doser L is for the way you look at me. O is for the only one I see. A is amazingly, amazingly extraordinary F is fairly more than any loaf that you adore can Please, please hold your applause. I know, this shortened-version of Nat King Cole’s “L-O-V-E” just pulls at the heartstrings. This love…

Don’t be un(c)raisinable…have more than one cookie

Grandma and Grandpa are coming to visit?!? Get outta town! After talking to Mama Doser on the phone last Wednesday, I found out that G&G were headed up to our family cottage in Westport, Ontario for the weekend. Our cottage on Crosby Lake just so happens to be within an hour and a half distance from…

A legen-dairy ice cream sandwich…full of the ‘Americone Dream’

“Seriously, you better have something baked for me by the time I arrive to SLU…” my best friend, Katie Prue says to me over the phone in anticipation of her visit to her alma mater for Labor Day weekend. “Of course, Honey Bunches,” I reply as I immediately start brainstorming ideas. Bex gets pretty pumped…

Itsy, Bitsy, Teenie, Weenie Caramel Chocolate Chip Brownini

Well, back to the college grind for Bex. Senior year at SLU is quite the transition from 8 months in DC but hey, it is what it is! Back with some great friends that I haven’t seen for over a year, intriguing classes, and a fun-filled house will make for some great memories. What better…

I quinoa believe how delicious this is…

Well…my last week in DC has arrived after 8 months of living here. I cannot come close to explaining how exactly I feel right now as I plan to enjoy every aspect of this beautiful city in the next 6 days with my favorite people, travel back home to Penfield, NY to spend time with my family for…

Say Cheese(cake)!

Everyone has that one (perhaps) odd food item that he or she could just eat excessive amounts of, but knows that it would be extremely weird to do so. For example, black olive juice. I love black olive juice…would drink it by the glassful if I could. But that would make me extremely weird, which I am…so…

I don’t even know where to (s)tart…

Happy Fourth of July Weekend, friends! Time to start making some great dishes to enjoy with family and friends. But in writing this blog post, I want to briefly tell you about an article that a co-worker sent me earlier this week that really stood out to me: This article was titled, “Let’s Not Forget Our…

Scone With the Wind…

Bex’s first attempt at making scones can now be crossed off her baking bucket list! I was just talking to one of my best friends, Kahin, about how relaxing and fun it is after a long day to just bake. Not follow a recipe, or even remotely know what you are going to make…but to…

Who you callin’ peanut….

When one questions what he or she feels like eating and thinks, “Hmm, do my tastebuds crave something sweet? Savory perhaps? Or both?” The answer is always: Peanut Butter. Just straight up peanut butter. Grab the jar. Grab a spoon. And just eat it by the spoonful. You won’t regret it. Well, I take that back….
