One of my good friends at school had a breakfast brunch for her birthday. While she was making most of the main food (quiches and mass amounts of bacon were present), I thought making some delicious sweet muffins would be a great addition. I was debating between Coffee Cake Muffins and Orange Raspberry Muffins, but decided on Orange Raspberry based on the birthday girl’s request and my craving for berries. Although, I promise to make Coffee Cake Muffins in the future, keep reading to find the Orange Raspberry Muffin recipe! Keep Reading…
I walked into the Godiva store to pick up my free truffle of the month (one of my favorite things to do each month), and I saw these delicious looking dessert cups in the display. I really wanted them, but as a law student, on loans, the $3 – $4 dessert cup didn’t really fit into my budget. But I thought, “Hey, I could make those!”. And I was right! I love making and eating chocolate ganache, so this was an excellent choice for the Spring Fling Party. Keep Reading
Homemade Moon Pies with Marshmallow Filling
I’ve never had a moon pie before today. Living in California and Philadelphia, moon pies weren’t popular at all. But as I came to the south, I hear talks of moon pies and whoopie pies.

My first event since having a blog will be my Spring Fling Party next Sunday. What is a Spring Fling Party you may ask? Well it’s a party to celebrate the first day of spring (or more commonly known as a reason for me to bake some new things for my friends).
I constantly want to be baking, but since it’s just me it never seems practical. So I’ve developed excuses to invite people over and fatten them up with deliciousness.
For this party, the menu will include three things:
~ Moon Pies
~ Pecan Sandies
~ Raspberry Ganache Dessert Cups
The party was great, and everyone seemed to really enjoy the food! I wasn’t able to make the pecan sandies. I think I used too much flour, and I wasn’t able to properly form the cookies. But the moon pies and raspberry ganache dessert cups came out great!
