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,…

buffalo chicken mac & cheese

Last week after I posted on Wednesday I had a thought: “I told them my thesis defense was on Tuesday and then didn’t mention it on Wednesday, I wonder if people think I failed?!” Cue the music: You’reeeee sooooo vaaaaaaaain. Vain, yes. Delusional, definitely. I called my mom and told her I passed so that…

Hey guess what! My thesis defense is Tuesday. Am I ready? Ehhh.. Do I care? Ehhh… I just got comments back from my committee on my document and one of them basically questioned the purpose of the entire study so I just clickety clicked “Delete Comment” on good old Microsoft Word and breezed past that…

chicken w/ salsa verde bake

Short week for me! I’m leaving on Wednesday morning for Orlando to present a poster at the American Academy of Audiology national conference. Or, as the GS refers to it, “The Ear Nerds Convention.” I’m really excited because I’ve never been before and I’m envisioning getting the Comic-con effect in full force. So many people…

homemade chicken stock & chicken noodle soup

Or, another installment of “24 Going on 75.” I know I shouldn’t complain about how long my break is but I reallyyyy don’t know how to handle idle time. I’ve been doing a lot of sewing, including these flannel Ikat pajama pants that I’m now living in because I don’t leave the house. I’m trying…

crockpot sesame chicken

Happy 2014! I’m still at home in Syracuse, where the weather is playing mind tricks on me and I’ve been doing  more sewing than socializing, as usual. We had a great New Year’s Eve out at camp, during which we played this ridiculous game that Kelly found. We each had on a necklace and if…

What are you asking Santa for this year? Kevin, in case you’re wondering, is looking for a Kindle Fire and Beats by Dre headphones. His justification is that he’ll start reading more if he gets a Kindle, and will start listening to the Rocky soundtrack before his basketball games if he gets $300 headphones. I’m…

buffalo chicken chili

As I mentioned, we moved to a new house in June. We absolutely love it and it is especially nice to be able to park if I get home after 6PM, which was not the case in Federal Hill. I’m also really enjoying that my rent is $100 cheaper every month. The trade-off for that,…

cooking with ziplock

Last Thursday was a busy day for me in the kitchen. Morgan and her BF visited us this weekend to celebrate her birthday, so I wanted to make her a cookie cake so that we could sing. I put the dough together on Thursday morning, with plans to bake it on Friday. Refrigerating the dough…

chicken lettuce wraps with peach salsa

Back, back to school! I started classes last week. I accidentally deleted my entire spreadsheet from my first statistics class, failed to purchase any of my textbooks, and got to spin around in a chair in my vestibular class. We’re off to a good start. Today was also my first day at the hospital. It…
