Coastal New England Cuisine

As a foodie, I love to try new things. This summer I have done just that upon a few small vacations & weekend getaways. The destinations I have visited included Newport RI, and a few small towns in Maine. I am always looking to try foods local to the area. Last years travel included southern BBQ…

Grilled Dessert?

Ah sweet summer, my favorite time of year. Juicy fresh fruit parade the counters of grocery stores, lemonade and ice cold soda quench thirsts, and burgers and dogs are flipped constantly. I think we can all agree there is no better feeling than indulging in the food of summer. So many people are tempted out…

Passion Tea Lemonade (Must Try!)

In the midst of a shift from frigid winter temperatures to a climate in which it is safe to wear shorts outside and not get frostbite, we trade in our hot tea mugs for a pitcher of iced. As a big lover of the south, I strongly believe there is nothing better than iced tea,…

Italy, Food, & Me

Since 2nd grade, I have always known a piece of my heart belongs to two things: 1. Food 2. Italy Now growing up in an Italian family, you can imagine the two often come hand in hand. In all honesty, I am not quite sure exactly how I got in to loving either one of…

10 Minute Chocolate Cake (In a Mug!)

We have all been there. Raiding the kitchen cabinets searching for some chocolate, and praying a decadent piece of fudge goodness would magically appear before your eyes. You see some chocolate cake mix, but frankly you don’t feel like spending an hour (or more) making a whole cake when your the only one to be…

That good. This recipe is courtesy of Sally’s Baking Addiction. Ingredients: RED VELVET BROWNIES 2 large eggs 1/2 cup…

One Year of Jules Bakes

Hello Bakers! On January 20th, I celebrated my 1 year of blogging and baking! Can you believe it?! Within this 1 year alone, the difference in my skill set has been drastic. Being able to appear on CT Style, attend culinary classes within my school system, the constant practice, Youtube channel, and blog have resulted…

Make Food Special

We live in a generation where instead of watching the sunset, we are found running outside to take an Instagram picture, hoping to get the most “likes” possible. We live in a generation that when you go out to eat, your choices are influenced on what looks best on camera. We live in a generation…

Adventure vs. Chore

Hello everyone! As you may have noticed, I haven’t blogged in over 2 months… horrible me. Within these last few months, I have been trying new recipes left and right, some that work out, and some, very frankly, not at all. I am not going to lie, I have been left aggravated with some of…

All Wrapped up in a Little Blue Bow…

More, more, more. All anyone ever wants is more. more time, more money, more friends. It seems that theres always never enough. Now I have found myself wanting more. More cake, more materials, and of course more car rides to the store (hm Mom :). But see,I have realized what we want more of, most…

Along with making my schools softball team, I have my own team as well so my life its practice, practice, making cakes, and sleeping. Which I am…
