protein-packed overnight oats

I’ve mentioned several times that I have ritualistic eating habits. Cereal every morning (lately I’ve been back on my Raisin Bran Crunch kick, though when I was in Rochester I made muesli almost exclusively). Lunch is always Greek yogurt and a PB&J. I get excited for both every day, and it has made for easy planning…

slow scrambled egg sandwich

Today I’m writing from Atlanta! HOT-Lanta! Actually I haven’t been outside yet today and it’s freezing in my hotel room, but it was hot yesterday. I had a somewhat uneventful trip down here, which was a welcome change from my travel experience to Iowa last week. We left Baltimore late, so I missed my connecting…

sweet & savory waffles

Happy long weekend everyone! I hope you all enjoyed your 4th of July celebrations, I know I did. My cousin Jamie got married yesterday and was THE most beautiful bride. I know people say that about every bride but really, she could be on a magazine cover. The GS came into town for the wedding,…

how to: cold brew iced coffee

This is going to be my newest summer thing. Brew a gigantic vat of iced coffee and have it in the fridge and it will be MINE ALL MINE because pretty soon I’ll be living alone with no one to share it with. I started drinking iced coffee when I was on the orientation staff…

blueberry muffins

I made it back to Baltimore safe and sound! Usually I get really sad when I leave home, but luckily I’m going back in about 2 weeks for Labor Day Weekend so I haven’t seen the last of camp for the summer. Some highlights… Lots of cooking. Obviously. I made two batches of orzo with…

birthday muesli

Happy 25th Birthday to my favorite older sister, Kelly Christine! Mid twenties. Phew. Getting old. I’ve discussed several camp foods before, but I failed to mention a staple- my Aunt Pat’s muesli. There’s always a bunch of it, and it’s always in a big Pennysticks container. It’s a really filling breakfast that is perfect for…

whole wheat roasted peach muffin tops

Who doesn’t love a title that includes “muffin tops”? Don’t worry, these are for eating, not for squeezing into your jeans. And ACTUALLY, they’re (slightly) healthy. Fruit, whole wheat flour, Greek yogurt. Nutritious for sure. I made these last week after a borderline heart attack incident that could only be solved by a little time…

whole wheat cinnamon raisin walnut bread

Last weekend was a crazy one of movin’ and shakin’. Emphasis on the movin’, not so much on the shakin’. Molly moved back to Philadelphia for an awesome job, so our friend Meghan moved in! Yay! I helped her move stuff on Friday, and we ended up rearranging our entire first floor. Then I helped…

veggie egg tower

If you’re ever in Baltimore, have breakfast at Miss Shirley’s. It’s a Baltimore establishment. They have some ridiculous things on the menu, such as key lime cheesecake stuffed french toast. Yeah I said it. As a Loyola student, it’s the place to go when your parents come to visit and will pay for it. One of my…

scallion pancakes

I probably shouldn’t admit this because it’s weird and embarrassing, but I have this fantasy that I’ll someday meet a handsome Prince Charming in the grocery store. I even told someone once that I think it would be so romantic to be proposed to there. Like casual Sunday shopping with your BF and he spontaneously…
