  • Pumpkin Spice Churros

    It’s officially Fall, which means the air is getting colder, the leaves are falling from the trees, and pumpkin spice is EVERYWHERE!

For those of you who have never heard of it, pumpkin spice is the seasoning typically used when baking a pumpkin pie. It gained popularity when coffee shops around the country started adding it to their drinks ...

Today I made these beautifully delicious Punjabi Samosas with Mint Chutney! Samosas are deep fried, cone shaped dumplings that are traditionally filled with a mixture of potatoes or meat.

I immediately knew what I had to make, the cheesiest, yummiest, and mushroomiest flatbread EVER! I sauteed the onions and mushroom with some olive oil ...
  • Rustic Berry Galette

    This delicious dessert that isn't easy as pie, it's easier! Let me break it down for you...Galette is a French term that refers to a variety of flat, round cakes, typically made with a flaky pastry/pie dough. As opposed to a tradtional pie, where the dough is places in a pie dish then the filling is places inside and finaly topped with more dough, a gallet is assembled differently. Instead, the filling is placed directly on top of a sheet of rolled out dough and then the edges of that ...

  • Garlic Rosemary Focaccia

    If you watch my Instagram stories, then you know that every day I have a slice or two (or three or four..to be honest) of pizza from my school's insanely amazing cafeteria. Now, I don't mean to offend the cheese and sauce but my favorite part of the pizza is the definitely the crust. That is why focaccia is a new favorite of mine. It is basically pizza dough, without the sauce and cheese, drenched in olive oil olive and topped with garlic and rosemary. Now I know ...
