Almond Honey Orange Cake with Balsamic Strawberries and Whipped Mascarpone

As it gets deeper and deeper into the school year, and midterm after midterm pulls me deeper into insanity, I can’t help but woefully reminisce about the sweet freedom of summer. In the midst of this nostalgia for friends and home, here is a bright, fresh ode to summer smack dab in the middle of fall.

Summer Brekkie 2016

(I wrote this post before school started, but finally got around to posting it after the craze of college settled down. If you're still on summer break, savor your freedom by making one of these brekkies!)

There’s exactly 7 more days until I head off to college. 7 more days until I’m 18. 7 more days until I’m not considered a child anymore. 7 more days until I can have a credit card under my own name. Despite all these official sounding things that come with the age 18, it’ll be a long while before the child in me grows up.

Currently writing this post on the plane to Seattle. Feeling weirdly adultish typing on my laptop up in the clouds.

Tiramisu with Homemade Ladyfingers

It's been over a month since I graduated high school. I have a month left of summer now. Before college. Before life away from home. Life, man.

The Art Assignment: Miso Carbonara with Spicy Jalapeño Sausage and Corn

I know many would not believe me when I say this meal was made for an actual homework assignment for AP Art History. Even my mom didn't. BUT IT'S TRUE!

This post is long overdue, but better late than never! So excited to share one of the best trips of my life and relive it as I write this post. Get comfortable and grab a snack, you're gonna need it.
