The Fall Post

Well its been forever since I’ve posted anything. Im not going to deny it. A lot has happened and Im not going to try and recap it all BUT fall is a time for baking. Some of the best recipes and flavours are fall related so I decided I would do a post to try and get back in the hang of all this. I present to you, Whole Wheat Zucchini Bread, because who doesn’t love feeling healthy while still eating scrumptious sugary bread :b

I will say that I have been extremely busy and not just ignoring everyone who has decided that I have something to say and reads this blog. I am now a New York resident, my family bought a house in Mount Vernon, NY. Coincidentally it is about 20 minutes away from Purchase College where I am a part of the conservatory of dance. It hasn’t exactly been an easy transition for me and home will always be in Vermont but I am slowly adjusting. Luckily my roommates are also two of the most wonderful girls and have been amazing in making my first semester memorable.
