Sooooo I’m broke. I don’t think that’s much of a surprise to anyone though; I’m a student, I have failed so far at scoring a job, AND I really set myself up by including poor in my blog title. I spent this weekend away in Seattle with some pals so I spent the week leading […]Read more "Broke Baking: Cheddar and Dill Drop Biscuits"
I was inspired to make bread pudding after having an experience that I’m sure many of you can relate to. You land yourself some nice bread and for a few days you eat it at every possible moment. It’s fresh, it’s chewy, it’s delicious, you love it. Then a couple days or so go by. […]Read more "Thrifty Thinking: Bread Pudding"
I like to eat. We know that, right? Cool. I’ve always liked eating and for a long time I was only really interested in how food got from the grocery store to my house and eventually into my mouth. In the past few years however, my interest has extended beyond consumption and into production. It […]Read more "Two Timing: Roasted Squash and Kabocha Ginger Cake"
So I gave being healthy a shot. I really did. I made that soup and it was super awesome. I thought about working out and even watched some hockey (not by choice) this week. But there are so many temptations! I am still eating the soup leftovers and I generally have a pretty healthy diet with […]Read more "I’m Usually More Into Brunettes: Chocolate, Coconut, and Walnut Blondies"
So the past days have been nothing short of pure madness. I spent the last 48 hours in a Chuck Berry laced state of delirium. Having an 8 page paper worth 25% plus an econ problem set due on the same day is not an ideal situation, especially when you procrastinate like I do. So […]Read more "A Lazy Baker’s Dream: Whole Wheat No-Knead Bread"
So first off I have to give mad props to my roommate for coming up with this title. My idea had diverged into an obscure reference to flight of the conchords (making a pot pie…for one) but thankfully she reigned me back in. Do you get it? Flying Solo? Individual Chicken Pies? Flying? Chicken? Solo? […]Read more "Flyin Solo! Individual Chicken Pot Pies"
Its that time of year again! The leaves are turning, there are little kids and college students running around everywhere in costumes, and it rained all week. It gets dark by 6 and it is so cold and wet outside that all I want to do is curl up with a blanket and my books/needlepoint/the […]Read more "It’s Halloween! Pumpkin Carrot Muffins"
Well, I feel like we’re in the point in our relationship where I can reveal to you that not everything I make turns out wonderful and lovely. Sure it tastes good but man it can get uuuuuugly. Its sad but thats what happens when you’re not a food network star and/or a food stylist(best profession […]Read more "It’s Not Always Pretty: Yogurt Loaf and Minced Beef Over Rice"
I recently realized that every time I try to write or talk about food it pretty much always breaks down into me ranting and raving about how amazing something was and how emotional it made me. I’m not really sure why food has such an effect on me but for as long as I can […]Read more "Buns from Heaven: Garlic Knots"
Ok so I am fully aware that that is not a picture of baked eggs. We’ll get to the food soon, I promise. There will ALWAYS be food in my posts because I love food…but I was wondering if I ever mentioned how much I love crafts? Because I LOVE crafts. More than love, I […]Read more "Say whaaat? Baked Eggs??"
