Oatmeal Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Father’s Day reminds me of the weekly Sunday drives I used to take with my Dad to visit my grandparents, NPR always filling the car. Upon arrival: a freshly baked tray of cookies.

Of course, colored sprinkles are necessary. These Yellow Cake Blondies were a quick treat to bake, and perhaps more importantly, an easilyContinue reading “Yellow Cake Blondies”

Instead, I offer you a lighter, yet still hearty, Vegan Spicy Black Bean Soup recipe–the perfect way to recharge after over-indulging. Being a college student with an ill-equipped kitchen (I’m looking at you, mixing bowl that’s actually aContinue reading “Vegan Spicy Black Bean Soup”
