With all this free time on my hands, what better time than to try some new baking recipes? One thing was on my mind was monkey bread. It's easy to portion, fun to eat and most of all, it's simple but delicious. I found a great recipe online using nothing but biscuits and the typical baking supplies from...

While TikTok may be known for its elaborate dances and POVs, I've seen a fair share of baking videos on the app. This time, I saw a recipe that I just had to make: marshmallow crescents. This recipe was simple enough to describe in a 40 second video and even easier to make. Ingredients: Cup 1/3 stick of...

September 14, 2018

Fall is just around the corner, and Florida has finally started to cool down to the point where baking no longer makes your house hotter than the sun. Because it is fall, pumpkin-flavored foods are everywhere: pumpkin spice lattes, pumpkin spice Oreos, even pumpkin spice Cheerios. So, I might as well...

Baking with Amelia: Peanut butter cookies

Peanut butter cookies are a go-to treat for when you want something sweet

Amelia Foster, A&E Editor

August 21, 2018

The perfect peanut butter cookie recipe is hard to find; it can't be too soft or too hard, and it must have the perfect amount of peanut butter. I believe I have found that recipe. These cookies are soft, but not undercooked. These are different from the typical peanut butter cookie because they use...

Snickerdoodles are one of the most classic cookies you can bake, sitting on a list with chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter cookies.

Baking with Amelia: Almond butter banana cookies

February 28, 2018

Most cookies I bake are filled with sugar. The first time I made something from scratch I stared in horror as I dumped the loads of sugar in. This recipe has no sugar, which means I definitely felt less guilt as I ate too many cookies. Nut butter and bananas are an iconic combination. I would know; I...

Love is in the air, and nothing is more romantic than cupcakes. I must confess I've never made cupcakes before this, not even from a box. I was nervous about making this recipe. I didn't want all this hard work to turn out disgusting, but it was amazing. If you love chocolate, you are sure to love...
