It seems like every month is just flying by lately. I'm both excited and anxious for October. I'm getting deeper into my classes and everything seems a little bit crazy right now, but at the same time it feels right. In …

Weekly Recipe: Sea Salt Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies

If I was ever going to tell you that there is one kind of cookie you HAVE to make. Make these. Please. They are so soft and chewy, the middle has an unexpected burst of caramel that oozes out and the cookie is so sweet and buttery with the chocolate chips and then the sea salt adds a quick salty t…

The view of Philadelphia from the Art Museum. Fresh flowers for the apartment. More of Philadelphia. Breakfast tacos for brunch …
