A new recipe post has been wayyy overdue. I’ve been so busy and haven’t had time to make creative recipes, nonetheless photograph them Not a great excuse, but let’s go with that for now.
This won’t make up for my long absence, but I have delicious oreo cupcakes today. (Sorry for those of you expecting a healthy recipe but at least these have Greek yogurt in them!) I made these for my sorority “little” during our secret week, where we shower the new members with infinite presents and love. The time period of welcoming new members is literally the craziest but thankfully I have my sorority “phamily” to help bake and decorate for my little. I baked these cupcakes in my grand-big’s apartment, who had these pretty, colorful cupcake liners!
Other exciting news besides sorority littles: I spent spring break Florida with 5 awesome girls (and finally some warm weather). I am officially living in a house with my best friends next year and the year after. The house is really close to campus and has a really nice kitchen with an oven! Which means lots of cooking and baking next year.
