Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes

One of the things that we love the most about blogging is being able to connect with people from all over the world who share the same excitement for baking that we do. The constant support and motivation from fellow bloggers and food lovers makes all of the spilled flour and chronically sticky counter tops worth it. When we were approached by the wonderful, (and absolutely adorable) sisters behind the blog ‘Sweet is always in Style” we knew immediately that there was no way we would turn it down. Oh, and did we mention that they are twins also? Twin bloggers unite!

Pancake Cupcakes

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Or, so I’m told. I, Lindsay, disagree. I think dessert is the most important meal of the day. It’s the meal that you wait for. You suffer through all of your vegetables so your mom will let you have some cake. You work for your dessert because you love it so much! That is why I decided to combine the two things together! If I have to eat breakfast..I’m going to eat it in cupcake form.

No-Churn Cake Batter Ice Cream

Hello fellow ice cream lovers. Lindsay here.

I actually went to the gym yesterday. Seriously? What? Why?

Well, in a swift moment of ambition I got myself a gym membership. I’ve had the dumb thing for like a month now and I had only used it once. Therefore, I figured I should probably use it. So I dragged myself there, complaining the whole way and I did the stuff. Let me tell you, I feel it. I hurt. I hurt in places that shouldn’t hurt. Any way I twist or turn results in pain. This must just mean that when I wake up tomorrow I’m going to be jacked and able to open a jar of jelly by myself right? RIGHT?

Loaded Oreo Cookie Bars

Hello, everybody! It’s Lauren. Hi.

One thing that is inevitable in the world of food blogging (and life in general) is the trial and error process. The error process always being a wee bit more frustrating than the trial. There is nothing more frustrating to me than envisioning something in my head, getting really excited about it, and then having it not work out. (Flashback to every yearbook photo ever taken since preschool) Blah! Life! I experienced this plethora of emotions this weekend. I had this vision in my head of magnificent, delicious, beautiful cookie bars full of yummy crap! They didn’t work out. They looked like poo, and I couldn’t get them out of the pan without them falling apart. They were just poo. The whole thing was poo! After I took them out of the oven and witnessed my failure, I did what I do best and complained about it. I was given the advice: “Just put some ice cream on top and they’ll be fine.” While that advice is very much in line with my own life motto and solution to pretty much every problem I’ve ever encountered since birth, I just wasn’t satisfied. In reality, they were not that horrible. They looked like average cookie bars, and they tasted absolutely fine. But in terms of photographing them and trying to make them look beautiful for blogging purposes, it just wasn’t going to happen. No amount of natural light and strategically placed props were going to help me. So, I did what most adults do when something doesn’t work out, and I napped it off. I woke up early the next day and made them again, and they came out just the way I wanted. Perseverance, people!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcakes

Well, folks the time has come. Summer is over. Not officially by calendar standards, but school has started, so basically all of the fun has been sucked out of the season. Where did the time go? Why does Winter seem to last for 40 years, but summer is over in half a second? Seriously. I feel like it lasted all of a week. We started college two weeks ago and we are not incredibly excited about that.  Actually no, we are excited because it is our very last semester of school ever! (We’ve been in college for a billion years because we are indecisive and can’t figure our lives out. Until now). Yay adulthood! However, with that being said, school starting means we have a lot less time to bake and do other very important things such as:

1. Binge watch Netflix (Stranger Things. Am I right?!)

2. Sit on the couch

3. Play with the cats

4. Get sunburns in hopes that they would turn into tans (They don’t)
