Dairy-free Biscoff Ice Cream [v.]

My favorite ice cream is the Biscoff flavor at this local ice cream shop in my hometown. It’s not what I would describe as a luxurious ice cream. It’s not exceedingly rich or overwhelmingly complex, but each bite is like a refreshing bite of chunky cookie butter. When I order it with friends, we get it sundae style, topped …

No-knead Cranberry Walnut Carrot Bread

Have you watched the Food Network show Chopped? I’m sort of slightly addicted. When I’m at college, I only have cable at the gym so the amount of TV I watch is limited to how long I’m willing to run, aka not that long.

Up until this zucchini …

Best Veggie Lasagna

It’s hellishly hot, I’m running on 5 hours of sleep, and I forgot my laptop charger at work so I’m anxiously watching the battery drain, but at the moment all that matters is this lasagna. The origins of this lasagna are a losing battle I have with cheese. Aka, I can’t stop buying new varieties …

Homemade Pizza for One

This is my kind of pizza. It has a thin, unimposing crust that’s soft and chewy, but also sturdy enough to hold triple its weight in toppings. Because I love toppings. However, I usually shy away from making pizza because I don’t want to buy entire cans of olives or pineapple since it’s a hassle …
