Bex went from one eggs-treme to another…

We all know I love eggs…I mean, who doesn’t? One of my favorite types is the traditional deviled egg but I must admit; I only have a deviled egg about once a year. Normally this lovely moment comes when my parents host their annual “Penfield High School Jazz Fundraiser Party” around the month of February, and my…

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…

I b(rusch)etta come up with an apple-ing pun for this recipe…

“How do you eat that plain Greek yogurt by itself, Bex?” my housemate Abbey asked me one day as I made a breakfast parfait with Chobani plain Greek yogurt. “You just have to jazz it up, Ab!” I responded. “It’s amazing!” Easy, creamy, beautiful, Chobani. Ok wait…that just sounded like a Covergirl advertisement… Chobani’s non-fat…

Thank Gourd for Acorn Squash…

After spending a summer in Washington, D.C., I met so many great food-blogger friends who all encouraged me to start Spoon University at St. Lawrence University (you can read more about what Spoon University is through the link!) After talking to many friends, I decided that I really wanted to give it a try because…

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…

So many herbs, so little thyme…

Last night, my roommates and I enjoyed a nice glass of red wine (along with a much needed exchange of back massages) and afterwards, I decided to relax in my room and watch the movie of a trailer we previewed in my Media Industries class yesterday: United 93. Knowing it would be hard to watch, I prepared myself…

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…

Bex’s Best Bites of DC – 2015

Of all weeks to return to Rochester, NY this summer, Bex, of course, had to leave Washington, D.C. during the best week of them all: D.C. Restaurant Week. Devastating, I know. Trust me, I shed a tear because of this…actually, many tears. In honor of it being restaurant week in my favorite city, I shall share…
