These past weeks pumpkin has been on the mind. It's inevitable since it's fall.
First I started out with a very simple, yet delicious pumpkin bread.
I have to say though, the first time I tried out this recipe it did not come out good at all. The bread was not risen at all, raw, and not sweet at all. Well turns out I left out a cups of sugar (a cup?!?)
Let's just say I was very, very tired that day.
Thankfully, the second time came out better.
Next I made these heavenly pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. Making these was such a last minute decision, so I didn't know if it would come out or not. Well it turned out these were a HUGE success. The pumpkin made the cookies sooooo moist on the inside. So moist that you think it's raw when you take it out of the oven, but it's not. These cookies are perfect for people like me, who LOVE their cookies soft and chewy on the inside. Literally, those cookies were gone in less than a day at my house.
So that's what I have for you this week, hope you guys have a fantastic Thanksgiving:)

Just a few pictures from the farmer's market we went to this weekend. The market is only a few miles away and this is only my second time there (hard to believe i know). It was so much fun I got to go with my grandma too which made it the most special:)
Hope your weekend went well

Hi guys, today I have a little something different for you.
Every once an awhile I'm going to share blogs that are my favorite and inspiring me.
These lovely pictures above is from one of my favorite bloggers, Izy from Top with Cinnamon.
I love Izy's beautiful simplistic pictures that only concentrate on the food and doesn't distract us.
Also I have to say I adore seeing these cute, little gifs on her blog.
The one thing that completely captivates me is that Izy is a teen food blogger, just like me. She gives me so much hope because I look at her page, look at her beautiful pictures, look at how many people follow her and I say wow, she is really going somewhere and she is only just a few years older than me. Izy shows me that age doesn't matter in the game, you can be just as successful in food blogging as anyone else. I hope that one day, with tons of work, I can get as amazing pictures and recipes that this blog has
Soo that's my little snippet for the day about one of my favorite bloggers, I hope you liked it and please go check out Izy's blog because she is fabulous.
P.s. she also is from London and has a british accent which makes her 10 times cooler in my book:)

Hello guys I''m back!
As you can tell my blog has gone under a complete transformation.
For me it was such a long, and weary, battle trying to get a design that I was completely happy with (as the control freak that I am). I have spent months and months learning from creating my own buttons to how to edit html style. The months that I have had off were well spent improving my photography by experimenting and taking online courses, so I could come back to this blog and continually do what I love.
I am so incredibly happy beyond words to be back and I just want you all to know that truly love and have a passion for what I do here on this blog. After seeing the final transformation I started crying because I can finally see my dream becoming a reality. I just want to thank all you readers and hopefully by the end of this month I'll have a lot more:)
Thank you guys so much again, and I will be back soon with some amazing new recipes!
P.s. I have been obsessed with tea lately and after a recent trip to Teavana I came back with this exquisite Very Berry White Tea, I highly recommend it for tea lovers like me:)

Hello everyone. It's been really busy around here these days, as you can tell from my lack of posting (sorry!). Today I made these delightful raspberries with coconut butter from In Sonnet's Kitchen. I have many favorite flavor combos that I love, and coconut and raspberries are definitely up there on the list.
I was a little hesitant making this because you had to make homemade coconut butter and use the food processor (yikes). But surprising it wasn't that bad.
First... throw all your unsweetened coconut flakes in a food processor...
Then blend until smooth... I know easy right?
Then just dip and freeze your raspberries for a frozen and delicious treat.
Go check out the full recipe click on this link.
Also I am not going to be able to post for the next two weeks:( but hold tight because I'll be back in August with some really good recipes!!!
I have also been trying to improve my photography... so if anyone has any tips please tell me.
Thanks:) Hope you guys have a wonderful July!

Hi guys! Sorry I have been really busy lately trying to make updates to this blog. Yesterday I made these amazing lemon shortbread cookies from Une Gamine Dans la Cuisine. She is an awesome food blogger with some of the most beautiful pictures I have ever seen. I soon came across these cookies and I was like, I have to make these. They turned out really good, you were able to taste the tartness of the lemon and have a little bit of sweet from the powered sugar. They were super easy to make and they would be perfect for a party. My little sister had so much fun making these with me haha (she was the lemon squeezer).
To get this fantastic recipe click here. Also go and check out Une Gamine Dans la Cuisine and her gorgeous desserts and pictures!
