If you can’t stand the heat…

One of the perks of Stuvi1: having my first school-year kitchen. I am very excited to become more domestic and learn my way around the kitchen, despite what my teammates believe I am capable of. They tell me I will be making bowls of cereal for the rest of my life with an occasional omelet thrown in when my boyfriend and I get bored. Well, gentlemen, if you’re reading, know that is no longer the case thanks to the Internet.

I was on BuzzFeed the other day (the best website for riveting daily news; things like “26 Times Fall Foliage Went Too Far” and “17 Dogs Who Understand How You Feel About Pizza”) and they recently began a fall theme. After coming across the article “25 Pumpkin Desserts To Eat This Fall” I decided it was time to explore the best parts of every senior’s weekend: baking delicious desserts.

I sent the article to my roommates and all of them agreed upon the Pumpkin Cookie Cups. The recipe called for a number of things that weren’t in my kitchen cabinets, so I had to make a Shaw’s run to get cream cheese, pumpkin puree, ground cloves and cinnamon.

All of the ingredients are now in my refrigerator or cabinets, but I was called away to a core team meeting on Sunday afternoon. Until next weekend, when I’m craving a distraction from studying!
