On the way to hiking in New Hampshire, we spotted an apple orchard. And after a few hours of hiking in the chilly mountain air, it was the perfect place to stop. All hunger pains can be cured with mulled apple cider and cider doughnuts.

As summer winds down and school starts again, final celebrations of summer freedom are in full swing. A perfect summer treat for a picnic or gathering is a hand pie: minimal mess but a lot of summer fruit and flavor!
The layers of pastry are light and crisp, with peaches that are sweet with just the right amount of tart.

Recently, baking tends to come in spurts. I bake in between work, after shelf exams, or before a marathon study period. If I'm running short on time, but have the urge to bake, I choose something simple and fast -usually one I've made before.
But for special occasions? Although they are my favorite, plain old chocolate chip cookies don't always cut it.
So I give you these Black Bottom Cupcakes. They are both quick and easy, but also a step up from the basic cookie.

There's been a bit of an absence, but life has a certain way of getting a little crazy. But I would like to dedicate this to my beloved city.
I've spent the past six years of my life in Boston. I've grown from a wide-eyed teenager to a seasoned Bostonian. From roaming the miles of Commonwealth Avenue, to getting lost in Beacon Hill, to learning to become a physician in the heart of the South End, my friends and I owe a lot to this city. I am continually thankful to the spectators, runners, first responders, and medical personnel for their strength and bravery.

I have now officially made this twice in 2 weeks. Both times, on awards ceremony nights. It might just be the official cake of awards nights!
