Caitlin’s Confections: Twisted Cinnamon Rolls

Warm, flakey, twisted cinnamon rolls. Oh, yes. I find comfort in baking. There’s a quiet assuredness to the reliability of butter, flour, and sugar. When the day is long, I can still make something sweet. I found a recipe for little twisted rolls on a whim and wanted to try them out. Naturally, I paired them with a cinnamon roll filling and voila, twisted cinnamon rolls. To say I’m excited about the way they turned out would be an understatement. They were so easy to make! The dough was incredibly soft and pliable while the filling was buttery and spiced.…

Winter Capsule Wardrobe

I’ve been infatuated with the idea of a capsule wardrobe for awhile now. I love how simple it makes everything- varying between a set number of objects to create a handful of outfits that are far from boring and repetitive. This winter capsule wardrobe is warm enough to wear over these next few dreary months, professional enough that I am comfortable in the classroom, and stylish enough to throw on for a quick weekend outing. In total, my winter capsule wardrobe includes twelve items and those items make twelve outfits. For tops, I’ve included a black tee, a denim shirt,…

52 Books in 52 Weeks: The Couple Next Door

One of my goals for 2020 is to read more. What better way than to commit to reading one book a week? 52 books in 52 weeks and I’ll be sharing every single one on the blog, every Sunday. Check in for my latest reads and recommendations. I read The Couple Next Door in about four hours. I started it before a yoga class, thought about what I’d read all through my yoga class (achieving very little zen) and got right back to reading once I got home. The story was nauseating and horrifying but I couldn’t put it down.…

Caitlin’s Confections: Carrot Ginger Loaf

With the cold weather settling in, I’m spending my evenings in the kitchen baking for the purpose of using our oven to heat our tiny apartment. Plus, having warm treats in the house is a major mood lifter (hygee anyone?) Today’s recipe came about because my mother gifted me a set of loaf pans for Christmas. Her reasoning: maybe I’d stop borrowing hers! Also, my father got me a new KitchenAid food processor which has an awesome attachment that makes grating vegetables a dream! I love sneaking vegetables into baked goods. Zucchini and carrot breads are some of my favorite…

52 Books in 52 Weeks: Girl, Wash Your Face

One of my goals for 2020 is to read more. What better way than to commit to reading one book a week? 52 books in 52 weeks and I’ll be sharing every single one on the blog, every Sunday. Check in for my latest reads and recommendations. Boy, am I glad that Girl, Wash Your Face was my first read of this year. I may be jumping on the bandwagon a little late but wow, I loved this book. Ryan’s mom passed it on to me after reading and liking it and I was excited. I had heard about Rachel…
