Snacks are a crucial part of hosting friends over for a movie marathon. Since Mami of Puella Magi Madoka Magica always had tea and cake, I made brownies out of cake mix and brewed tea that sparkles.
Fall is notorious for the onset of pumpkin spice everything in the past decade, but there’s nothing cheesy about old activities like carving pumpkins. It’s a good excuse for wine and friends to come over and make a mess in your kitchen. Plus, sometimes you need to unwind by getting those creative juices flowing.
I don’t even know why I think making frosting at the same time cupcakes are happening is a good idea.

Happy New Year, everyone! I finally have moments to breathe because I am on break and this hellish semester is over. Literally, if you can avoid taking 6 hard-science courses at once, please do. So, I find myself relaxing a lot these days. After an exciting Christmas and an eventful New Year’s Eve, some rest and relaxation is in order. So, I find myself spending time in PJ’s trying new snacks. I want to tell you about some delicious new cookies I tried and one of my new favorite Christmas gifts.
Cronuts are all the rage (apparently). Pricey and weird-looking, people still want them. And I found myself wanting them too…except for the fact that there is not a cronuterie in Ithaca, NY. So I decided to make one in my kitchen with the help of my friend, Andy, who worked at a bakery over the summer. The results might not have been the prettiest, but two sticks of butter, Nutella, and powdered sugar were involved so I guess everything went better (and more deliciously) than expected.
