Mint Chocolate Cupcakes

I’m honestly surprised it took so long for me to post a recipe for mint chocolate cupcakes on the blog. If you know me well, you know that mint chocolate anything is my favorite flavor combination… if it’s option at an ice cream or frozen yogurt place, you can be sure that I’ll have it. You just can’t go wrong!

Reflections After a Year of College

I haven’t been doing my month-in-pictures posts on here for several reasons, but mostly because I was too busy being a college student. My freshman year has flown by, and I thought I’d sit down and put some of my thoughts about college into words. In between, I’ll insert some random pictures that I think sum up my first year experience at Carolina, not necessarily related to the bullet point. Here goes:

Also considering the fact that the only edible food found at our dining hall is carbs (pizza, pasta, and cookies), my desire to bake cupcakes or cook my go-to pasta dishes when I come home kind of goes down the drain.
