Whole Grain Banana Bread Donuts

Before I came to college, I never believed people when they told me that dining hall food was bad. However, I now very clearly understand the monotony and tastelessness that I was always told about. Because if I have to experience one more taco Tuesday, with mystery meat that always leaves my stomach feeling not-so-hot,…

Vegan Cinnamon Swirl Muffins

It’s surprisingly hard for someone to be a vegan in college. Now, I’m not a vegan myself, but my sister is, so I understand the difficulties that vegans have with eating out.

Well, no longer will you have to run out to the store last-minute to buy a…

Quick & Easy Peppermint Bark

Sometimes, you just need that chocolate “fix”. I just finished my first semester of college, and I can tell you firsthand that the hardest part about college was not the homework load, making it to class on time, or even waking up for 8AM biology. It was not being able to bake. And not being…
