Classic Peanut Butter Cookies

I am really excited for this year! For some reason, it feels different…but I’m not sure why. Lots of thoughts rolling around in my head right now though. I hope to do some traveling, plan a few camping trips, and I want to run another half marathon. Completing a half last year was really challenging but it was totally worth it. Perhaps I am being too ambitious but I guess only time will tell. :) I’m also in my second week of taking a nutrition class at the City College! So far, it’s really fun and interesting. We’ve learned a lot about the 6 classes of nutrients, the difference between calories from fat vs. calories from carbohydrates, and a few types of studies that are commonly used for nutritional research. You might be thinking…Duh, Steph, everyone knows this stuff. LAME. Well, not meeee! I read a lot about nutrition in my free [Continue Reading...]

The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap: Chocolate Nutella Cookies

It’s that time of the year again…cookie season! And my favorite way to kick it off is by participating in the Annual Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap hosted by The Little Kitchen and Love and Olive Oil. This is my third year participating and I feel like it just gets better and better every year! Here are my cookies from Year 1 and Year 2 if any of you are curious. The way it works: Food bloggers sign up online and then we receive 3 matches. We then make 3 dozen of the same cookie and send out 1 dozen to each match. In return, we get 3 different types of cookies (1 dozen each) from 3 other bloggers. It’s pretty amazing, especially when you have hundreds of bloggers participating from all over the world! Also, this year Julie and Lindsay got some great sponsors who matched our donations, and we ended up [Continue Reading...]

Sriracha Mac and Cheese

Mac and cheese is quite possibly one of my favorite comfort foods. And hot sauce? Hot sauce is my best friend. This sriracha mac and cheese has it all. For many of you, autumn has arrived and pumpkin spice everything is everywhere. Leaves are probably turning all of those pretty fall colors. But in San Francisco? It’s summertime! For about 2-3 months out of the year, we get some warmth and sun in this foggy city. And even though I’m soaking it up while it lasts, I’m starting to crave those cold weather comfort foods. Ergo, sriracha mac and cheese. Sriracha is added into the cheesy béchamel sauce and then extra hot suace is also drizzled on top right before serving. Spicy perfection! I got this idea from my friend Cassie who is awesome at whipping up great meals. She invited a huge group of us over and made multiple [Continue Reading...]

Biscoff Apple Crisp with Biscoff Caramel Sauce

I was recently given the opportunity to work with Biscoff and create a recipe with their ridiculously delicious Biscoff Cookie Spreads. Let’s just say that I’ve been eating this stuff non-stop, and I could eat 10 more jars. No questions asked. I love Biscoff cookies but have never really tried the spreads. I was missing out–this stuff is addicting! I’ve been spreading it on crackers, eating it with apples, and just straight out of the jar via giant spoons. Someone help me. I normally don’t even like to eat too much sweet stuff at one time but what’s not to love about cookies in the form of a spread?! Genius. And I could also make 10 more batches of this Biscoff apple crisp! But wait, it get’s better. Biscoff caramel sauce also happened. And it’s the most amazing caramel sauce ever!!! I hinted about it on Instagram but no one was able to guess that the secret [Continue Reading...]

Bruschetta and The Little Things

When I was offered the opportunity to work with Olivari Olive Oil, I got really excited when I learned that their campaign slogan is: The Little Things Are Everything. I truly believe in this mantra, and think about it quite often actually. I always reflect on the little things in life, and I think doing so gives me clarity when I’m confused about something (or going through my quarter life crisis!). For me, some of the most important things in life can be summed up into a few categories: Quality time with friends and family, alone time, and tasty food. In that order. :) I love is spending time with my friends and family. Big trips and adventures are nice, but quality time and just hanging out together are even better. Simply appreciating daily pleasures such as ordering take out with my roommates or sharing funny youtube videos with my parents are the best. And those simple but sweet moments are the [Continue Reading...]
