Lemon Cheesecake Bars

A majority of the time, I have a reading problem. 


My brain fritzes out, eyes glaze over... who knows what happens. 


I just end up with a bunch of wrong answers on a test or some surprisingly lemony cheesecake bars!




These are the same bars that Em made over winter break, except with a few modifications!


I totally misread the recipe and added the juice of an entire lemon. Turns out, I actually prefer it with this extra lemony kick!


Since this was also a part of a little celebration, we added some chocolate swirls for some extra happiness.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies

Oops. Just realized that everything we've made recently either involves peanut butter or pizza.  So if you're allergic to nuts or have a strong distaste for pizza (tears) -my apologies!


I swear we don't just live off these two things!




Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Blondies is too crazy to say. In the spirit of medicine, let's use PBCCB instead.


Not much better?


This time, I actually remembered to take a picture in the daylight. Since days -especially mornings are designated study time, I tend to bake at night.


Doesn't always bode well when my brain is barely functioning! I usually mess something up. And I forget to take a picture, or if I do remember, it's all weird and hazy from lack of lighting!

Smores Bars

"M...there's a snake behind you."


"PSHH. Yea, a snake. You're joking."


 wiggle wiggle


"...uhh...no really."


And my life flashed before my eyes. For real.


Even though it was the most ridiculous little thing, I've never moved so fast in my life. 


Smores are made for camping trips -to calm you down after a snake encounter. But when you've accidentally bought way too many smores supplies and have no convenient campfire within a 30 mile radius, it's time to make some bars.




Yup those are giant marshmallows.

Peanut Blossom Cookies

Don't you ever wish there were more hours in a day? 


Mmm. Actually, maybe not.  That would mean more time for studying.


I do wish I could multitask more. Like talk on the phone while folding laundry and catching up on cool things of the interweb.


But I don't even have a time turner...bummer. 




These peanut blossom cookies were a part of our holiday baking extravaganza. Afterwards, we were completely exhausted from spending that much time in the kitchen. It took us a few weeks to even want to get back into the baking world.
