I’m (hazel)nuts about you, Nocciolata

What could honestly be better than chocolate and peanut butter together? Well, probably a lot, I guess, if you’re allergic to peanut butter. Then, the combo would not be so great and also, your life would be really sad. Just saying. The new Nocciolata Hazelnut & Cocoa Spread is made with ingredients that are all farmed…

Just a-peach-iating my last summer margarita

Summer? What summer! Man, time flies. Seems like I moved back to D.C. yesterday and yet I just had my three-month review as an account coordinator at Ketchum two days ago.

Jack of all Trades, Master of (the Sticky) Bun

You can’t have none of my nutella, ella ella eh eh eh

Pretty hard to believe that I just got back from my last spring break ever and have less than two months left of senior year. You know what this calls for? A new type of baked oatmeal….duh. These baked oatmeals really got me through lent this year. With the absence of desserts/sweets, a delicious oatmeal…

This will bake your mouth water….

I love when something or someone inspires me to make a new breakfast dish. My friend, Colleen McNamara, whom I just met this year through my good friend at SLU, Emma Garfield, is not only an avid Breakfastwithbex fan – making just about every dish I create – but is simply one of the cutest,…
