Lauren and the Apple Cider Donuts

There are so many other things I need to be doing right now. If I look at my planner right now, I'm probably going to have to pencil in when I'm allowed to breathe..... Yet here I am! Let me just say, I am very disappointed with this so called "autumn" this year. What an … Continue reading Lauren and the Apple Cider Donuts

Tianxin and La Pupuseria

I think it's a beautiful thing that a Norwegian/Irish white girl and a Chinese girl can walk into a Salvadoran restaurant to get food without even the thought of how none of this would be possible without being so beautifully connected, especially by food. I mean, all of the waitresses still looked at us like … Continue reading Tianxin and La Pupuseria

The Bad Days: Stories You Didn’t Hear from Spain

Traveling is not always as fabulous or fun as Instagram bloggers (covertly trying to sell you products) portray it. Life is certainly never a constant high, and there are aspects to travel, especially long-term trips that have quite deep, sometimes embarrassing lows. Life is hard, and strange, and also magnificent. It's still life though, no … Continue reading The Bad Days: Stories You Didn’t Hear from Spain

Madrid: Sungate One Hostel & All the Sites to See

On Memorial Day in the U.S, I sat in the airport waiting for my flight, feeling incredibly stupid for not only mistaking the time of the flight but also for forgetting my adapter AND euros at home. In the end it didn't really matter (it cost me quite a bit, don't be like me). At … Continue reading Madrid: Sungate One Hostel & All the Sites to See

My Summer in Spain

Hello all you lovely, freshly baked cupcakes! If you don't know me, you haven't had the pleasure (or as some would call it, annoyance) of my non-stop gush of how excited I am to be spending this summer in Espana! I'll be taking Spanish classes and finishing up my Spanish minor. If that doesn't sound dope … Continue reading My Summer in Spain

My Garden

Living in College Park was a constant reminder of what I missed at home; my garden. In the concrete stop between Baltimore and D.C, there was little room to grow anything unless it was at the school. I discovered, a bit too late, about the community garden plots I could have rented. Now I'm home, … Continue reading My Garden

Snickerdoodle Cake

People are obsessed with this cake when I make it. To be fair, its absolutely delicious. Just to be clear, I didn't originally write this recipe, but I totally don't even mind. This Snickerdoodle Cake is out of this world delicious; it's comparable to a trip in the enterprise or the tardis. I changed the … Continue reading Snickerdoodle Cake
