Does this ever happen to you?: you suddenly find the perfect subject for a quick photo so you whip out your camera and snap the picture, but then you get home and the photo looks terrible. This has happened to me numerous times, believe me! However, I have developed a method to make sure that […]

Have You Seen The Mortal Instruments: City Of Bones Movie Yet?


Back in the spring, all of my friends at school were raving about some book series that all of them had just read called The Mortal Instruments. It was “AMAZING”, they said, “Life-changing”.  Naturally, I would simply roll my eyes and push their unending flow of comments out of my conscience; I was very happy […]

A while back before Easter, I received a text message from Katrina showing me a picture of this: A MINI DOUGHNUT MAKER!!!!! I knew that we needed […]

Powder Puffs!!!


The one quality that I admire (even just as much as the taste) in desserts is cuteness. And these desserts just might top the list; they are absolutely ADORABLE!!!! They are powderpuffs: tiny madeline-like cakes with fresh vanilla whipped cream and other toppings sandwiched between them. I used this recipe, and they turned out PERFECT. For […]
