2013 Summer Bucket List


Wow!!! It’s finally the season that I have been looking forward to since last fall: SUMMER!!! No more school, no more homework, and no more disgusting cafeteria lunches!!! Just two whole months to do whatever I want. My goal this summer is to do something of value everyday. It doesn’t have to be significant; it can […]

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 […]

While this task may seem […]

Orange Julius!!


And now continuing with my unintentional series  of recipes I made when I was sick: Orange Julius!!! Katrina’s mom was actually the one who introduced me to this AMAZING explosion of orangeness in a cup (otherwise known as orange julius). Ever since then, I’ve been trying to figure out how to make it without much […]

Two Ways to Fry: Onion Rings and Garlic Potatoes


Recently, my family and I went through our kitchen and COMPLETELY reorganized it. During the process we found many interesting things: a juicer, a couple funnels, and, most importantly, a small fryer. I had completely forgotten about that thing, and I decided that I needed to make up for lost time. How you ask? By frying […]

Pink Lemonade Cupcakes!!!!!!


Cupcakes; the perfect little circle, filled with moist, cakey goodness and topped off with rich, creamy frosting. The one thing that can make that amazing dish better, is when it tastes like pink lemonade; now THAT is pure heaven. Today, Katrina prepared this awesome delicacy together at her house. They turned out PERFECT; The insides […]

Chocolate Chip Pancakes!!!


Pancakes are the best. The only things that can make it better are adding chocolate chips and making them with your bro. The other day, I got to do both of those things; my older brother and I made fluffy, golden, chocolate chip pancakes together, and they were absolutely delicious. We used this recipe (with […]
