Orange Chocolate Cream Cheese Pound Cake

I’m not sure how it happened so fast, but during the week we were in Atlanta, every single tree in this town grew all its leaves back. It is so pretty and bright green everywhere right now! (Of course that means it’s Spring which means it’s going to get […]

Crumb Cake


I have been slacking SO much in the running department.  If it weren’t for early morning runs with Aron, I’d probably only run once a week.  I think I’ve just gotten so into cycling and swimming that running has lost some of its appeal. With a trail half marathon […]

Momofuku Birthday Cake


In spite of the fact that the compost cookies completely flopped, I am completely in love with the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook.  When Mike decided he wanted his birthday cake to be THE birthday cake from the book, I was super stoked….until I realized that I didn’t have any acetate sheets […]

Cherry Vanilla Loaf Cake

I feel like I completely missed out on cherry season.  When we went to our (new) town’s farmers market a couple weeks ago, the handful of places that had cherries posted big signs saying “last week for cherries.” What?! It was the first cherries I’d had all year!  Fortunately […]

Chocolate Malt Cake

My parents just got back from 5 weeks in Bhutan (my dad was doing doctor stuff and my mom was teaching 5th grade English), it was their 33rd wedding anniversary, AND Ellie turned 9 months old. Cake was definitely in order. My parents both love chocolate and malt, so […]

Peanut Butter Cake


The last few days have been completely taken over by math.  Matrices haunt my dreams, I’m constantly running through proofs and derivations, and I’m sort of accepting the fact that number theory is way over my head.  This stupid test is in two weeks and I can’t wait to […]

Vanilla Latte Cupcakes


It’s Friday! Have a cupcake. I actually made these a few weeks ago, but I really wish I could be eating one right now. These days, I’m not drinking much coffee. Okay, kind of a lie. I’m not drinking much caffeinated coffee. But I made an exception for the coffee […]

Cupcakes with Mango Buttercream


I cannot believe how many of my food blogging friends are having babies this year! Today a huge group of us are celebrating Krystal’s baby, who is on his or her way (nobody will know until it gets here!) in 10 weeks. I met Krystal at Foodbuzz Festival in […]

Chocolate-Almond-Coconut Cupcakes

easter cupcakes

Oh look, more running and more cupcakes! I kicked off Big Sur Marathon training with a 15.27 mile run on Sunday. I spent a lot of the run in Golden Gate Park, thinking with every step how grateful I am to have this amazing place to run just a […]

Pink Lemonade Cupcakes


Courtney is a Facebook and blogging friend that I’ve never met in real life, but I’m SO excited to be a part of a virtual baby shower in honor of the little girl she’s expecting next month! (Thanks for hosting, Josie!) It took me forever to decide what to […]
