Hearty Whole Grain Pancakes with Sweet Berry Compote

My first year of college has come to a close!! Like any other freshman year, my past nine months have been full of both ups and downs, many unexpected occurrences, and lots (and lots) of memorable events. I am unbelievably grateful for all the opportunities I was given and wonderful people I have had the…

Oven Roasted Breakfast Potatoes

Happy Easter! Honestly, the best thing about being home has been baking. Yes, I love seeing my family and catching up with old friends. And sure, not having to walk to another building to do laundry is nice too. But the thing I miss the absolute most about home is having my own kitchen! So,…

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.
