Valentine's Day Treats

Happy Valentine's Day tomorrow! Today I am sharing some yummy recipes that are super easy to make for a fun Valentine's Day treat! First I made these red velvet cupcakes from a box mix they are delicious and super easy! I made an easy homemade cream cheese frosting to top them with. You can find the cupcake mix here.


Cream Cheese Frosting Recipe
Ingredients -
8 oz cream cheese, room temp
8 Tbsp. butter
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions - 
Put cream cheese in mixing bowl on low for about 30 seconds to soften.
Gradually add in butter.
Add in confectioners' sugar.
Add vanilla.
Let mix until very smooth.
 

The other treat I made were these great sugar cookies! My mom gave me this recipe and it is seriously the best they are perfectly fluffy and delicious.

Sugar Cookies
Ingredients - 
1/3 cup salted butter
1/3 cup butter flavored crisco
2 cups flour
1 egg
3/4 cup sugar
1 Tbsp. milk
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla
dash salt

Directions - 
Put butter and crisco together in mixing bowl, mix on medium speed for 30 seconds.
Add 1 cup flour (half of the flour), the egg, sugar, milk, baking powder, vanilla, and salt. Mix on medium speed until thoroughly combined.
Add in remaining flour and finish mixing.
Remove dough from the bowl using a spatula and place in plastic wrap. Place dough in the fridge for 2-3 hours.
Roll out cookies - I used this cute cookie cutter, because it has a grip and is easy to use.
Preheat oven to 375 and bake cookies for 7 minutes.

COLLEGE GROCERY STAPLES

It's Finally Friday!! The spring semester is in full swing for this girl, however, spring break is in 7 days and counting, so things are looking up! Today I am sharing my college grocery staples, because at least at my school the food is not great and I mainly go to the dining hall for dinner. I am gluten-free, so everything on this list to the best of my knowledge is gluten-free! I do 99% of my grocery shopping at Wegmans and if you are from New York (other than NYC) you know how amazing this grocery store is! Above I am wearing my typical errands outfit, comfy and warm!
Drinks - orange juice - cranberry juice - smart watr - k cups
Fruit - (for fruit I like to the prepared containers because this is a lot less work and there's not a lot of room to prepare fruit at college) - lemons - strawberries - raspberries - apples - pineapple
Cheese/Meat - cheese - Chobani greek yogurt - turkey sandwich meat - all natural coffee creamer
Other Staples - peanut butter - popcorn - trail mix - …

THE COZIEST THERMAL FOR WINTER

Today's outfit is what I wear is a great depiction of what I would love to wear everyday, thermals, my favorite leggings, and hunters which are great for the tons of snow we have in New York. I love wearing this outfit and outfits like it to my classes and like today, to run errands. This thermal is so warm and insanely cozy!
