Yeast Breads


Happy December everyone! I’m currently in the midst of finals, but thought I would go ahead and get this post out, especially seeing as I took these pictures months ago. I’ve made this ciabatta a few times, and I’m a big fan. Ciabatta was also on my baking bucket list this year, so its nice… Continue reading Ciabatta


Salted Caramel Sauce

Sooo, it’s the weekend. Normally I would be a little more thrilled, but my weekends nowadays are packed so full of homework that I don’t get much respite. And even if I’m not doing homework, I’m stressing about the fact that I’m not doing homework.

My vacation started Thursday, when Alejandro and… Continue reading Buffalo Chicken Quinoa Salad
