Baking up a storm

So NYU gave its first snow day in who knows how long. New York was hit with a huge snow storm and I'm glad I didn't have morning classes. Though I did end up going out to dinner for a friend's birthday.

This past weekend my aunt, uncle and cousin visited since she's got her mid-winter recess this week. I ended up making cream puffs, monkey bread and baked garlic fries. I'll link everything.

First was the cream puffs. I got the recipe from joy of baking and it was super easy!

Next was monkey bread. I never even heard of this before but after stumbling upon this recipe I knew I had to try it out. Just buy a can of buttermilk biscuits and you're ready to go. Top with brown sugar, cinnamon and butter to make this delicious treat. When I woke up the next morning the whole thing had been devoured.

Lastly, some baked garlic fries. These too were gone in about 10 minutes. I didn't have any garlic powder which the recipe called for so I guess they didn't taste as good as they could have.

Now it's back to school and all that work. :( Can't wait until spring break.


  1. The food looks delish! =) It definitely has been long, eh?? I think the last time we chatted online was right before I was leaving for Japan. Anyway, I am indeed returning to the states this summer. I highly recommend JET. I just wish there wasn't so much time until acceptance. It's like applying to school all over again. lol

    Anyway, the whole messaging on blogger is a little weird. You can e-mail me at ff_vivi@hotmail.com =)

    Before my final return home in the summer, I'll be visiting during the last 2 weeks of March. It'd be awesome to meet and catch up. I do plan on going into the city sometimes. Let me know if it would work for you too!
