King Street Cafe

While college life is amazing, the thing I missed the most were my friends. I had friends leaving for Mount Ida, URI, George Washington University and many more and it was hard knowing they’d be so far away from me. When we found ourselves back in the tri town, our favorite thing to do was…

UMass

This month has been so busy with final exams, papers and projects!! It’s crazy that my first year at college is almost over and I’m so grateful for the amazing experience I’ve had and the friends I’ve made. I’ve learned that going to the gym alone is ok, going to the dining hall alone is…

The Canteen

So as most of you know, I used to be a dancer, and every year we would go to Cape Cod for our national dance competition. And while I love dancing, the best part was of course eating all the food! These salad bowls were from a really cute restaurant called The Canteen in Provincetown….

Berry Smoothie Bowl

Smoothie bowls have been taking over the internet as the new healthy breakfast aesthetic. With almost 1.5 million posts on Instagram with the hashtag #smoothiebowl, I thought I’d give it a try! This is my take on a berry breakfast smoothie bowl. Ingredients 1 frozen banana 1 cup frozen mixed berries 1 cup spinach 1…

Starbucks Iced Chai Latte

One of my many loves in life is of course, coffee. So when you put a Starbucks inside a Target, you’ve got me hooked. I recently came across this quote on Twitter that said “No one goes to Target because they need something. You go to Target and let target tell you what you need.”…

Apple Cake

I’m sure it’s no secret that UMass Amherst was ranked #1 dining for the second year in a row! My favorite part of the dining experience of course is the desserts and they never fail to come up with the most decedent sweets. This is an apple cake and it was so amazing, I’m dying…

Antonio’s

Almost every time I tell someone I go to UMass Amherst, their first question is “Have you gone to Antonio’s yet?” so my roommate and I decided to try it out. We walked to downtown Amherst, which is about a 20 minute walk from campus and when we got there, there was a line out…

Taco Turkey Burger Salad

I love salads and make them almost everyday, but let’s be honest, salads can get boring. So I’m going to share a few recipes with you guys on how I spice up my salads to make them more fun. This one is my taco turkey burger salad with homemade honey mustard dressing. Burger Ingredients 1-1/2…

Nicky’s

My family and I have been going to Nicky’s family restaurant in Wrentham, Massachusetts for as long as I can remember. My great grandparents were regulars and knew all the staff and my favorite part was running to the ice cream bar after dinner and getting bubblegum ice cream with my brothers. As we ate…

Protein Pancakes

Pancakes are just my favorite thing in the whole world! I love making all types of protein pancakes whenever I have the time. After playing around with a couple different recipes, I have to say this one is my all time favorite. The pancakes come out beautifully fluffy and I love playing with toppings! Comment…

Katie’s Homemade Ice Cream

Every year, my dance studio goes to Cape Cod to perform at Nationals and it’s one of my favorite times of the year! One of our favorite spots to go to is Katie’s Homemade Ice Cream on Main Street in Hyannis. Every time we go, I try a different flavor of ice cream, and trust…

Protein Chocolate Banana Muffins

I love making protein desserts, but they can be difficult to get right because protein powder is a hard ingredient to work with. This was my first attempt at making protein muffins and they came out great! I would recommend heating them up in a microwave or toaster first because my secret is to put…
