It’s been quite some time since I’ve posted a new recipe! This summer I spent my time working at a local vegan bakery and I’ve absolutely loved it. So much that I actually did tear up a little bit once the week before classes rolled around because I just didn’t want to go back to school and not get to spend everyday at the bakery! I’ve learned a lot of new things over the summer and it’s just overall been really great.
Anyway, back to the point of the post. I discovered sometime within the past year that I really love making bread dough, there’s something so therapeutic about the whole process; it helps me relieve stress and relax a little bit. That being said, I’ve often thought, surely there are things to make other than bread, pizza, and cinnamon rolls, I just didn’t know what to make! That is, until last weekend when I woke up on Sunday morning and thought to myself, “I think I’ll try and make pretzels today!”

I should really be studying for my exams on Monday and Tuesday, but this is more fun. My summer classes will come to an end on Tuesday, August 4th and I will get to have almost 3 whole weeks of summer vacation! Hopefully I can get out and do everything that I had planned on this summer in the span of 3 weeks. There’s this place called Cloud 9 around here that is basically a giant trampoline playground type thing and I’ve been dying to go for over a year, but haven’t been, so that’s on my summer list. Taking Rory camping, going to the beach, traveling, all kinds of things I want to do! Get ready for the adventures.
This week’s adventures included peach picking with a few pounds of blueberries thrown in because, why not? We ended up picking 101.5 pounds of peaches and 3 pounds of blueberries, which is the most amount of peaches we’ve ever picked at one time. We managed to pick them in about 15 minutes, which is about the time it took us to pick 63 pounds last year. This year was a little different though because we were constantly being attacked by flies and we were picking as fast as we could, running between trees. Oh, and if you’re wondering, yes we managed to fit all of this in my little tiny smart car.

I’m a bit late for this one, but eh, it’s aight. This week was extremely busy with school, but on Tuesday we went back up to Williamsburg and bought our very first boat! We went for a little sunset sail and it was a lovely evening. After a few more practice sails we will be ready to sail her down to her new home!
Then on Friday we got to go blueberry picking, which made the entire week better. It even happened to be National Pick Blueberries Day, what a coincidence! Last year we went picking twice and got 15 pounds each time, for a grand summer total of 30 pounds. This year we want to pick even more since we had to start rationing the ones in the freezer around February to make sure they lasted until the summer!
On our first picking trip we ended up with about 22 pounds, so we are definitely going to beat last year’s total!

I’ve been making a lot of muffins lately. They’re just the perfect grab n’ go snack to always have in the house, especially for busy days! I like being able to grab a muffin as I’m heading out the door to class, my mom can take them for snacks at school, and my dad can take them to work with him, everyone wins!
I try my hardest to alternate the flavor of muffins I make each time I make them. Sometimes it’s blueberry, could be pumpkin, maybe banana, the list goes on and on. The two I’ve been making the most often are pumpkin and banana, especially since we have 2 jars of pumpkin puree in the fridge and 2 bunches of bananas sitting on the counter.
