Pumpkin Gingerbread bars

28 Sep

Hey guys!

First off, I wanted to thank everyone who’s been checking out my blog! I’m so excited to have some now followers, and I just wanted to welcome you guys!  As I mentioned last time, pumpkin season is upon us!  A few days ago my best friend called me and as we usually do, we discussed what we had recently been cooking and baking.  I’ve been on a cake spree, since there’s been a bunch of birthdays recently, and she was making some pumpkin gingerbread bars.  I of course immediately insisted that she share the recipe with me, because the sound of a pumpkin gingerbread bar sounded seriously amazing.  I’ve been dreaming of making these since she told me about them, so today when I finally had some time I immediately got to it!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

19 Sep

My favorite season is here! Pumpkin season!

One of my favorite things about the fall season (or just summer part 2 in Florida) is that pumpkin flavored items are sold everywhere!  I’m a bit obsessed with anything pumpkin flavored, and of course love to bake anything and everything I can with pumpkin.  So to kick off the season, I’ve started with some pumpkin cookies!  These are really tasty, fluffy cookies with a surprise medley of flavors created by the mixture of the pumpkin spices and the chocolate chips : ).  I find that even people who aren’t pumpkin crazed will still really enjoy these (my brother for example)!

Hey guys!

How’s everyone doing?

NYC Summer Trip!

8 Sep

Oh New York, how I love you!  Anyone who knows me, knows that NYC is basically my favorite place in the world as of late.  Since visiting last summer for the first time in my adult life, I’ve become enamored by the city *o* and I’ve visited 5 times since.  So when some travel plans fell through a couple of weeks ago, I decided to call up my best friend (because NYC is simply best experienced when you have your nearest and dearest tagging along for some adventures) and we decided on an impromptu trip during our extended holiday weekend!  This is probably one of the more crazy trips I’ve had, we experienced many things including winning some lotteries, walking into random festivals, walking around the streets at 3am, falling down in the middle of the street, and oh yea, meeting some rock stars ; )

And of course, let’s not forget the most important thing, eating everything lol.  So if I’ve piqued your curiosity, I invite you to keep reading : )!
