Lemon Coconut Cookies

I wanted to make a lighter, summer-y cookie; this is what I came up with! A wonderful lemon coconut cookie dusted with powdered sugar. The perfect amount of sweetness to be a treat, but light enough to enjoy on a hot Washington, DC summer day :) Enjoy!

Taste of DC: Day 1!

Today was day 1 at Taste of DC! So of course, baked goods were in order. These are peanut butter-oatmeal-chocolate chip-m&m cookies. Definitely one of my favorites, and I think they went over very well :)

Oreo Overload

I LOVE Oreos. A lot. So it's only natural that I would make a cupcake like this. It's an oreo cupcake (aka vanilla cupcake with oreos mixed in), with oreo frosting, and an oreo on top. YUM! Didn't make these for any particular reason, so let me know if you want one!

Brownies, muffins, and mac & cheese!

Ok so this is a catch-up post for the things I've been making for everyone to enjoy during finals week!

These are my DELICIOUS homemade, fudgy, chocolate chunk brownies! There are also brownie-cookie bars too!

These are tasty, very healthy muffins. They are oatmeal and whole wheat, fat-free muffins. Some of them have apple butter in the middle. A delicious and nutritious part of a healthy breakfast :)!

And finally, this is homemade mac & cheese with breadcrumbs on top. So so tasty-- you'll never want the box kind again!
