Chocolate Whisky Bundt Cake with PB Glaze and Chocolate-Covered Potato Chips

Whew. What a title, right?!

I made this cake for my old Roomz and another good friend from law school after they reminded me that it had been a really long time since they had eaten anything “Kate baked.” So, like, maybe I went overboard trying to impress them is what I’m trying to say…

Isn’t it weird how things happen like that, though? You spend three years seeing a person every day and sharing fridge space and borrowing eggs and telling each other to “PLEASE EAT SOME OF THOSE COOKIES SO I DON’T EAT THREE DOZEN BY MYSELF.” And then, one day, you stop doing that. And suddenly, it’s been six months since your old Roomz has eaten anything you’ve baked.

Ugh, change. Amirite?!

Peanut Butter Cupcakes

There are a LOT of things on my to-do list and practically none of them involve studying.  (By practically none I mean…one of them is studying.)

I need to paint my nails in the spirit of Valentine’s Day.  I spent >30 minutes at CVS tonight choosing the PERFECT sparkly pink nail polish.  Also buying new mascara (other tube only has 75% left, clearly need more) and trying not to buy candy because obvi it will be on sale in 2 days.

PB&J…from scratch

I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to write this post.  A few weeks ago, my college roommate Sarah was in town visiting.  Even though it took us awhile to figure out some of our other daily activities (sometimes a challenge to choose an summer activity in Texas that does not involve heatstroke), we obvs knew for sure that we would be baking something.  (more…)

Apologies that we’ve fallen into a habit of only posting once every seven days over here.

I had planned on getting this recipe up for you on Friday. And then on Saturday. Obviously, I didn’t succeed.

Wanna know why?

I’m currently suffering from a severe case of The Tomorrows.

Chocolate Chip Banana Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting

You guys, EPIC NEWS.

We (Hannah and I) took a picture together when we were in the same place and looking pretty!! Check it ouuuuttt!

Sorry if this ruins some elaborate narrative you had about us actually being the same person, or two different sides of Hannah’s personality, or if you thought that I was maybe a dude. I hope you can forgive us and that we can still be internet friends.

Okay, with that EPIC NEWS out of the way, let’s talk about something really serious… Like how everything is out to get me recently.

Blondie-Brownie Reese’s Cup Sandwiches

Oh friends.  Friends, friends, friends.

You thought you were just coming here from some good, clean, baking fun.

Little did you know that I (Hannah) made a peanut butter cup sandwich.

Except instead of bread, I used peanut butter blondie and brownie. (more…)

Chocolate Sheet Cake with Peanut Butter Glaze

Simplicity is the name of the game today.

It’s Monday.  We have 5 days of week ahead of us before Friday.  So let’s just pare it down a bit.  Make things easy on ourselves.

Maybe skip the blow dryer.  Make friends with a cute headband.  Forgo the cheekbone highlighter and the eye brightening eyeliner in favor of some pink lipgloss.  Or red.  Whatever floats your boat.

Let’s drink coffee with some milk.  Just say no to the foam and the flavors and the whipped and this and that.  A big mug + coffee + milk is all we need.  (Or tea.  Maybs you just need that instead.) (more…)
