Guest Blog: Nikki’s Pumpkin Spice Cookies

She is so going to have to teach me how to make awesome photos like that!

Today’s contribution comes from my sister Nikki. Nikki is a first year higher education graduate student at the University of Central Florida, and works as a Residential Graduate Assistant at Rollins College. In between her classwork, her GA duties, training for marathons (she has one coming up!), and obsessing over corgis, she manages to bake for her residents and friends.

A few weeks ago, I attempted baking, and realized that it was not a failed adventure! Nikki somehow managed to obtain the baking gene from our Mom, and is able to make even simple recipes amazing. Someday I will post about our ‘bunny cake’ fiasco. (cakes that look like bunnies…no, I have not cheated on being a vegan to consume a rabbit). The following is Nikki’s post…in her own words!


organic pumpkin filling
chocolate chips
spice cake mix

“hi i am nikki! i cook these for my residents! Cook in the oven at 365 for 10 minutes. Dont add eggs or oil from cake mix, just use the powder. cookies will be soft and cakey!”

She would probably write more…but is responsible and is finishing her homework before going to a staff meeting!
