Watermelon Mint Popsicles

Sometimes simple things are better and lazy people have got it right. Prime example: last summer, when my mom brought a watermelon home from the store I would immediately cut it open, slice it into cubes, and store it in a Tupperware for easy access! However, at the beginning of watermelon season this summer, I…

Chocolate Lava Cake in a Mug

I stumbled across the idea for this recipe by accident. For graduation this year, one of my friends gave me a cookbook for recipes that you can make in a mug. Flipping through it, we found a recipe for a Fondant au Chocolat (aka French Chocolate Lava Cake). Deciding to give it a go, we…

They’re gluten free,…

Gluten Free Cranberry Muffins

The most important thing about muffins are how moist they are. At least, in my opinion. Think about it: if muffins aren’t moist, then really what are they other than dense bread? Dry muffins are all but unbearable, and take at least 1 glass of milk to wash down. However, you do have to ensure…
