Cooking In Pajamas

K this second post for the week took a bit longer than expected but I finally perfected the pictures so we're good now. YAY Post #2 for the week! And that too, to celebrate one of the nerdiest holidays out there! STAR WARS DAY!

All the wonderful puns.

Also because this recipe is banana filled, I HAD the little song by the Minions from Despicable Me stuck in my head. So I figured I should share that adorableness and mental torture with you guys.

Anyways... after being home sick for an entire week in what I consider my personal version of solitary confinement, I hit a new level of insanity. I was deprived of social interaction to such a point that I legit LOL'd at a Buzzfeed article of ridiculous snapchats for a good 20 minutes. And by LOL'd I mean curled over laughing so hard I could barely breathe.

So I was terribly sick last week whilst recovering from Coachella so I've decided to treat you guys with not one but TWO whole posts! I know right?! So awesome. You can thank me later. AND to make things better... instead of sharing just a single song... I'm going to gift you with a whole playlist of my favorite songs from Coachella!

So very typical of me, I didn't double check my flight timings when booking so I ended up flying out to LAX a whole 10 hours before the rest of my group. I decided to start the trip out right, eggs Benedict and a mimosa at the airport with a side of Gilmore Girls.

Usually 10 hours stranded at an airport is a bummer, but there are worse places to get stranded than LAX. It kind of ended up working out for me because I took my camera

There's something about the combination of chocolate and orange that just gets me every time. I love to make hot chocolate with just a few drops of orange in it, and I have been dying to make chocolate-y bread with bits of orange zest woven through it.

But this weekend, I found myself with coconut flour and coconut cream, and decided on chocolate cookies with a delicious, lightly orange-flavored cream.

If you want to get all hipster buzzwords about it, this recipe is: grain free, refined sugar free, vegan.

If you just want to be totally super normal about it, this recipe is: delicious.

Give it a try :)

    I'm sure most of y'all have been on a bar crawl - you have a list of bars, and you hit them up one after the other, sipping a little of this and a little of that at each one.

    This is similar, but with FOOD. While you are certainly welcome bring booze into the mix, these are instructions for figuring out an all food crawl; it's an excellent way to explore a new city!

    It's also a really good way to spend a couple of hours with friends without spending a ton of money; if you're on a budget, this is a great way to try lots of different food, and see quite a bit, without breaking the bank. We each paid for one entree at one place, and it came out perfectly for us!

    First, you need a walkable city. I myself did this with my friends Eden

    I know I know this week I'm kind of skimping out! I have been rushing to get my week's work done by yesterday so that I can be ready to fully enjoy Coachella this year! I am currently on my way there and unbelievably excited! I will report back next week with all the food and excitement!

    I had made these Cinnamon buns a while back when I used to make treats for my coworkers (unfortunately it's been some time since I've done that). I didn't really experiment too much, more or less made the recipe verbatim. I found this recipe for simple and quick whole wheat mini cinnamon buns.

    My chief complaint with this recipe is the fact that whole wheat gives it a whole different and drier texture. Personally if I were to remake these, I'd just use normal flour and make smaller size cinnamon buns. They're tiny
