Saying Bonjour to Sur La Table’s Cooking Class

Like most girls who binge-watched Gossip Girl during their summer vacation and then made a point of visiting 864 Madison Avenue, I treasure the delicate, pastel cookies that can make a girl feel chic and Parisian even if she isn’t dressed in head-to-toe Chanel.

I’m Back!

I also was not a fan of eating plain with just steamed milk, which is how my dad eats it almost every morning (and loves it)!… Continue reading Apple and Banana Oatmeal

Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies

For me, there is no better activity for a snow day than baking cookies. After spending about five hours in the library working on my thesis, I was ready to head back to my townhouse and bake! Since Valentine’s Day is approaching, I had been saving red velvet recipes on my Pinterest board for a couple… Continue reading Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies
