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...]

Craft Chocolate Tasting for Newbies

I recently attended a craft chocolate tasting in the city hosted by Bar & Bean, and it was awesome! I learned so much about chocolate (the history, how it’s made, where it’s made, etc.). For instance, do you really know and understand what you’re choosing when you pick out a bar of “nice chocolate” at the store? I thought I did until this tasting session. And the delicious perk for attending this event? I got to taste a BUNCH of small batch chocolate bars from all different places! :) Among some of the fun facts received, I learned that 80% cacao can mean different things, and that all chocolate bars are not created equal. In honor of National Chocolate Day coming up on October 28, 2013, and with the help of Bar & Bean, I’m going to share some of the things I learned so you will know how to [Continue Reading...]

South America: Lima, Peru

Hey guys! I just spent last weekend attending Outside Lands, a music festival here in SF. It was so much fun! It’s also been over a month since I’ve been back from South America but I still can’t stop thinking about our trip. I was going to write this post and then finish with a recap of Ecuador but I’ve decided to split Ecuador up into two posts (there’s just so much to share!). Sorry it’s taking me so long to get all of these recaps out! Thanks for your patience as I slowly post these recaps–it means a lot to me that I get to share them. Lima was probably our least favorite city to visit but it could have been because a bunch of our friends told us to spend as little time there as possible or because it was so gloomy/rainy the entire time we were there.

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...]
