And that, my friends, is a peek into the fascinating and complex inner musings of my brain. Let’s just chalk it up to the hundreds of drug names and mass information in general that I have to memorize for my finals, and the subsequent lack of cortical space for anything else.


ANYWAY, carrot cake is a staple around these parts, whether Easter or not. But with this carrot cake, I may have outdone myself, as I tend to like to do. Creamy cheesecake swirled with perfectly spiced carrot cake. This one’s a stunner.

diy: melted crayon art

These melted crayon art projects were alll the rage on Pinterest a couple months ago.


Are they over? Because I still think they are so awesome!


So easy! Just buy a canvas, a pack of crayons, and grab your hair dryer. The hardest part was putting the crayons in color order (which I have to admit was slightly challenging for my perfectionist tendencies)
