I really like cheeseburgers. Like, I REALLY like them. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and have intense cravings for something incredibly bad for me.
Let me tell you about these burgers. They're made out of ground turkey, topped with thinly sliced red onion and creamy avocado and a tangy mango mayonnaise. Oh, and also bacon. We can never forget about bacon.

These cupcakes have bacon on them. They have bacon, and cinnamon, and a maple buttercream frosting. They're soft and smell like breakfast when they're baking, and you're probably going to take a bite and wonder why you've never thought of doing this before now.

I made pizza. Okay, so the crust wasn't homemade, but I'm not a superwoman. This recipe is super easy to make and so delicious. Mushroom's don't have to be on the pizza, any topping can really be used, but I love those little things.
I have a subscription to Rachael Ray Magazine and I'm not even embarrassed. In fact, my grandma subscribes me to it. I get really excited when I see a new magazine in my mailbox, and immediately flip through it to see what ingredients I have on hand to make whatever delicious things RR has planned out for me. Yes, that's right, she writes her recipes in accordance with what I have in my pantry. Just kidding, but wouldn't that be great? I found this recipe tucked into a little corner of her June/July issue, and I knew I had to have it.

I've been MIA. I've been MIA because I've been busy ending my junior year of college, moving, and visiting with my family from New York. But, that doesn't mean I haven't been cooking or eating! I'll catch up by beginning with these amazing cupcakes. The perfect combination of caramel and coffee, with a really fluffy whipped cream-like frosting. You're going to love it.

Charlie and I are going on a healthy eating kick. It's an attempt to feel better connected with our bodies and to feel better about the nutrition we're putting into them, as well. This stromboli is so good. SO good.

Do you know how easy and delicious it is to make homemade lemonade? How about the strawberry kind? This is like pink lemonade, but real and not out of a weird fountain thing at a fast food joint. You should make it. I have faith in you.

I'm not sure you read that title correctly, because it seems to me that you're still sitting there at your computer. Why are you not jumping out of your chair, running to the kitchen, and making this delicious chicken?! Get on it!

Charlie and I went grocery shopping the other day (good thing, because we're practically snowed in) and we bought a spaghetti squash for $1.99/lb. I don't know if that's a good deal, but it looked so good. I'm a fan of squash that's roasted with brown sugar and butter. That's probably because that's the way my mom makes it. Well, Charlie's mom makes it by topping it with spaghetti sauce. This one's for her.

I love deviled eggs. In my family at Easter, everyone gets a hard-boiled dyed egg with their name on it. When it's egg cracking time, you turn to the person next to you and bang your egg against theirs. The person whose egg didn't crack moves on to the next person in the line. This continues until only one person remains with an uncracked egg. Whoever that person was, won all of the eggs. Nobody ever wanted to be that person, considering there's usually tons of hard-boiled eggs to take home. Except me. I wanted to be the winner so that my mom could make hard-boiled eggs and I could eat them all.
I made a bunch of appetizers for the Superbowl. I'm kind of bad at this blogging thing in that I should of made them ahead of time and then posted them for all you guys out there in cyber world to actually make on the Superbowl. Oh well. We live and we learn.

Whenever I go to Burger King, which is very rarely, I get a Rodeo Burger. It's essentially a cheeseburger, but with an onion ring and barbecue sauce on top. It's fantastic! I decided to make my at-home version, using recipes I made awhile back.
Let's talk about lasagna and the fact that it looks like chopped up body parts all smashed together in a pan. I wouldn't eat lasagna for a really long time after I had my aunt's and then got the flu or something directly afterwards. Isn't it weird how you can be completely repulsed by a food just because you were sick after eating it? I can't eat Caesar salad's, either. Anyways. Lasagna.

That's right, you read correctly. These are not only cupcakes, but chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes. Yeah, you're only going to be able to eat half, but that means you'll have more opportunities to eat these delicious things!
I took a blogging hiatus to focus on my five (yes, five!) English classes this semester. However, that definitely doesn't mean I stopped cooking. I plan to post a ton of stuff tonight, starting with this baked penne. Most baked penne is made with tomato sauce, but I decided to switch things up and use pesto instead.

I am a penniless college student. Especially around this time of the year when I'm awaiting financial aid and Charlie and my food supply is starting to dwindle. We always have an abundance of flour and yeast and such, so bagels are an amazing (and filling) option. Also, they are delicious.
