5 things I MUST bake.

I'm a baker.
Sometimes, I bake to relieve stress.  In college, I always made a cake when I should have been studying for a big exam.  It became known as study cake, and last fall, my apartment of 6 girls would stand in our kitchen just eating the cake straight off the pan with forks at midnight.  When everyone is doing it, there's no judgement, no shame.
Since Pinterest entered my life, I've found tons of recipes that I need to try, so here are 5 that are at the top of my list!

can you say heaven in a cookie?

I'm not a huge coconut fan, so I'm wondering if I could omit that?  
I had this dense, delicious chocolate pie in North Carolina last spring, and I've been searching for a recipe that looks the same ever since.  Can any of my southern ladies help me out?

They're my absolute favorite candy...

Because chocolate & mint is always good for Christmas, right?

The one thing on this list that doesn't incorporate chocolate...what does that say about me?


  1. Peppermint patties!??? YUMMY! You should see my pinterest food board.. It's filled with stuff I swear I'm going to make, but most likely wont. Hopefully you're better about that kind of stuff than me... You should post a pic if you do make them!

  2. I was actually looking around for something to bake on Pinterest the other day, and I thought your board would the the wisest place to start. You're my go-to baking guru <3

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog and saying hello! All these things look amazing, I am a huge coconut fan, so that pie is right up my alley!

    I have a bad habit of baking when I should be studying too. I just think better when I have had a large dose of sugar and butter...or at least that's how I rationalize it!

    I wanted to ask you, having recently graduated from school with a degree in Psych, how is the job market for you? I read your "About Me" section, and saw you were going into education. I am thinking about taking the counseling route, I'm just scared to graduate honestly.

    Oh, and I'm your newest follower! :]

  4. I actually have made a few things from my pinterest board :) I am going to add a few of these! Peppermint Patties are my faves too.

  5. Okay. I was all excited by the peppermint patty recipe until I saw "attach candy thermometer..." Ugh. So not ready for that. Ever.

  6. look no further for southern chocolate pie. i almost cry when i eat this:

    1 unbaked pie crust
    1 stick butter
    2 squares semi-sweet chocolate
    1 c. sugar
    2 eggs, beaten
    1 tsp. vanilla
    dash of salt

    melt butter and chocolate; mix with other ingredients, which have been blended together. pour into pie shell. bake 35 minutes at 350 degrees and top with whipped cream!

  7. The first one looks amazing!!!! :) Yummm!

  8. I wish I had a roommate like you >.< would totally help me during the finals! anyway, I'm drooling over the peppermint patties. I used to go to pastry and chocolate making school, but I never be able to drag myself to the kitchen and practice what I have learn, that's why I envy you and your passion :)

  9. I have those peppermint candies on my list too! OMG I LOVE THEM. York Peppermint patties, junior mints....anything mint chocolate...YUM


  10. My God, I want to cuddle with those hot cocoa cookies. I want to make them mine. I never want to part from them.
