Cheat Lime Pie

There’s this restaurant in Nashville, called Germantown Cafe. It’s easily one of the best restaurants in the city, and last August, I went there for Restaurant Week with the other girls who lived in the Chi O House. We had a three course meal, with our choice of appetizer, entree, and dessert. I’m not sure … More Cheat Lime Pie

USA Flag Cake

These past few weeks, I’ve been having these  vivid first-day-of school dreams. I usually have these every summer, but it feels weird having them for the first time when I have no foreseeable first day of school. As excited as I am to move to a new city and start my new job, this three month … More USA Flag Cake

National Donut Day

1.5 years later, I’m back! I was so determined to continue this blog while I was in college, but I either never had the resources (i.e. a kitchen) or the motivation. Now, in my post-grad slump, I am totally ready to start making desserts again. I recently visited my friend in Montreal, and her roommate … More National Donut Day

Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

Inspired by Pioneer Woman, I made my own pumpkin puree, based on this tutorial.  This week I’m thinking of making pumpkin cinnamon rolls or some pumpkin pretzels with cinnamon sugar. But this … More Pumpkin Cheesecake Bars

Welcoming Autumn

It’s time for my favorite season. It’s been getting colder and colder here for a little while, but I’ve been holding off on calling it fall (in the hopes of holding off on winter) until now. It’s odd to celebrate fall in Denmark. Back home, everyone is going crazy over the arrival of pumpkin spice … More Welcoming Autumn

Sweet Avocados

Mmm avocados. So yummy and versatile. I could eat them for every meal. The past two weeks, I’ve been M.I.A. due to midterms and our travel break. But before that, my friend Karla and I got together to make some avocado banana smoothies. And oh my gosh it took everything in me not to gulp … More Sweet Avocados

Lemon Bars

A couple weeks ago, I finally tried making some desserts in the kitchen. I made (read: poorly attempted) some lemon bars with a recipe that I found online. They turned out kind of ugly looking, but I inhaled about five of them before putting the rest on the plate. Later that night, I met with … More Lemon Bars
