friday favorites edition 2

It’s been a week already! I’m not sure how I feel about that. But I am excited to share more favorites, including two more-successful-than-expected recipes I made this week. And I’m SUPER STOKED that I’m going home in 8 days!! Things that I am especially thankful for this week: 1. As previously mentioned, I’ll be…

so about that easter post

[This is long overdue. But I hope that this is one of those cases to which the expression “better late than never” can be aptly applied. And the world can always use another apple crisp recipe, right?] He is risen! And so is the sun. It comes up early these days – haven’t seen 5:00…
