Healthy Chocolate Peppermint Donuts

What just screams the winter season? Well, first off: snow. Lots and lots of snow. Last year, my hometown got almost 2 feet of snow. However, I now go to school in DC (since coming to college), which is two hours north of my hometown and gets about 6 inches to a foot more snow…

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…

Candy Cane Brownies

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Well, maybe not outside, where temperatures are reaching a daily high of 68°F. However, inside my house you can bet the stockings are being hung, the lights strung up, and the Christmas tree decorated. Michael Buble’s Christmas album can be heard echoing around my house at any…
