A Variety of Crescent Rolls

October 5, 2011

This barely counts as a recipe, but it was a lot of fun and I thought I’d share with you.  I bought a package of crescent rolls and decided to make a few different kinds for lunch.  I made pizza, peanut butter chocolate chip, and cinnamon sugar.  They were all delicious, and I will definitely make these again and try new varieties. It was super easy, fun, and you can be as creative as you want!  I know Amy and Libby have used crescent rolls to make pigs in a blanket before which was also delicious. These would be great to make for parties, appetizers, or snacks.

Have fun and enjoy!

Shrimp Penne Pasta

September 30, 2011
tags: ,

Well it has been an embarrassingly long time since I’ve made a post.  I really have no excuse now that I’m done with school and unemployed (hopefully not for much longer…), so I’m going to try my best to put more effort into our blog.  Plus, it gives me an excuse to bake and cook more 🙂

Have you heard of  It’s a semi new website which I have become obsessed with.  You can find lots of diy and cooking projects that you can save and organize in specific folders.  I have one dedicated to a bunch of recipes I want to try out.  Feel free to check it out here:  The other night I decided to make a recipe I saved on here and been wanting to make  – penne pasta with shrimp in a creamy tomato sauce.  The recipe is pretty simple and very delicious.  If I were to make again, though, I would want to add more veggies like red bell peppers, to give the dish more texture.  But anything with shrimp is good in my book!

Tiramisu Cupcakes

August 5, 2011

I tend to think of my mom as a baking goddess. She makes the absolute best classics–chocolate chip cookies, pancakes, cinnamon bread.

I kid you not when she described these cupcakes as “the best cupcakes I’ve ever had. Really, they really were.”

I’m not sure how else to convey to you how truly bomb these are.

Today is the day!

The day I see the final Harry Potter film.

I fully expect to cry. And to suffer from Post Potter Depression.

But before I do, and in honor of this special time, I give you these:

S’mores Pie

July 16, 2011

I know, I know.


I can’t help myself.

And honestly, could you? If you saw this?

That’s right. S’mores. In pie form.

I didn’t think so.

Strawberry Lemonade Icebox Pie

June 30, 2011


Perhaps the greatest dessert form ever. It can be fruity, chocolate-y, pumpkin-y; flaky crust, cookie crust, no crust; literally anything your heart desires, in a perfect circle, in perfect layers.

One of my oldest and bestest (and newly engaged!) friends, Kendra, has never made a pie.

Unacceptable! Not ok!

Yesterday we remedied that. And not only did we make a pie, but we made maybe the best pie of all time.

Chai Tea Bread

June 13, 2011

Well, it’s official: all the ladies of deliciosity are now officially college graduates!!!

Happy, happy day.

I think I can safely speak for all three of us when I say these past few weeks have reminded us how grateful we are for the people in our lives who we have met these past four years. People who will be lifelong friends… weddings, kiddies, old ladies on porches… they’ll be there for it all.

On my own trip back to Boston, I was lucky enough to have several people open up their doors and let me crash on their comfy couches. Two in particular, former roommates and overall rockstars, Kitty and Sam, for several days.

I wanted to say thank you.

With bread. Warm golden-y delicious bread.

Chai Tea Bread, to be specific.

I live in Southern California.

Today it is raining.

My grandma is from England.

My family could probably be classified as certified tea addicts.

Add all of these things together an afternoon with these:

Join me for tea, why don’t you?

Macaroni Salad

May 13, 2011

So I cheated a little bit…I actually made this a while ago for an Easter potluck, but I have been so swamped at work that I am just now posting it.

This macaroni salad was extremely easy to make.  I have been holding on to this recipe since the summer and now just felt like the right time to use it.  So glad I did!

Tortilla Pie

April 26, 2011

This is a recipe I have been wanting to make for a long time, so when I had my friends Maralyn and Brandon over for dinner the other week, it seemed like the perfect time to embrace my new southwestern roots.

Behold the deliciousness that is stacked tortilla pie!
