This weekend was perfect. After days of being in the house, classrooms, and laboratories, the weekend just screams go outside! On Saturday, my friend Erin drove to Davis to visit me from San Jose. We went to middle school together in Austin and I hadn’t seen her in years! She happens to be doing an … More go outside!!
I know I keep making paleo recipes and most people aren’t paleo, but I just can’t stop! I am not full blown paleo, but I have always eaten fairly low amounts of grains. Lately, I have just taken it up a notch by reducing grains a bit more and eating less cheese and sour cream. … More what you thought you couldn’t have… paleo ice cream!!
Health is such a fickle thing. You can feel strong and so good for so long that you start to think that you will never get sick again. That you are just above getting sick. Then, midterms come around, you stay out late a couple times, you work out because you miss it, and BAM … More a remedy for the hard days
I have been on a ridiculous ice cream kick lately. I literally just can’t get enough – I like to think that all the calcium is seeping into my bones and I am now indestructible.

Twice now I have asked readers to divulge what recipes they would like me to post. While I have fulfilled many of the requests, there has been one that has been haunting me. More than any other baked good, dessert, entree, drink, or snack, you people have been wanting… cinnamon rolls. you would never, ever … More Light and quick… whole grain pumpkin cinnamon rolls
Life has this weird ability to speed up slow down simultaneously. I finished summer school on Friday after taking my Genetics final, but I don’t really have a break before school starts (in just a week and a half!) because sorority pre-recruitment has begun. It still creeps me out that I joined a sorority, but … More I baked my first cake (and I accidently made it gluten free).
Chelsea’s boyfriend (and my temporary room mate) Tommy has been on a juice kick lately. He has been juicing everything, from normal things like carrots and apples, to failed attempts at banana and persimmon juice. He buys carrots in 5 lb bags from Costco and so I’ve had mountains of carrot pulp tempting me with … More What to do with your leftover juicer pulp!
Happy 4th of July from Lake Tahoe! This weekend has truly been a blessing. Carlyn and I drove to Tahoe early Friday morning to her parent’s new home on North Shore. It is the longest period of time I have been able to spend with her throughout our entire friendship. She is the busiest girl … More Happy 4th of July!
First of all, I just want to thank you all for the sweet comments on my last post. Y’all are truly the best. * You know that biochemistry lab I have been bitching about for the last 9 weeks? Well, it is finally over. Completely. No more labs. No more lab reports. No more mid-protein-assay … More Finals: Survival Mode
Happy Saturday everyone! The week really flew by. Between class, lab, internship, meetings, baking up a storm, and my car breaking down, I finally feel like I can breathe again! The car issue was pretty embarrassing. It has been making screeching noises for months now, but I haven’t quite had the time to take it … More Whole wheat pasta and shrimp tossed with wasabi sweet potato & ginger sauce
