cleansing again

Hey friends! My supervisor just said “One Thursday a month we have business meeting. You’re not invited. Go do something else.” Why, good morning to you too! So I thought I would share some photo evidence of my fooding this week. As I mentioned I’m doing the cleanse again, but I modified it this time….

aunt pat’s oatmeal cookies

I’m already sad that I’ll probably have to leave Rochester after my residency is done in a year. That’s stupid, I know. But I love it! Here are some highlights: 1) Everyone at my job is so nice. They love each other and seem like they are friends outside of work and I want to…

whole wheat Greek flatbreads

I talk about a whole lot of nothing in these blog posts. Somehow I failed to mention (almost four months ago) when I found out that I’ll be moving back to the CNY in June to do my fourth year residency at the University of Rochester Medical Center. I think it’s somewhat ironic that I…

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…

sour cream & onion dip

This weekend my family and most of the Hilton Head crew was in town visiting! I cooked a boatload of chicken riggies on Friday night, and yesterday we went to College Park for the Syracuse/Maryland football game and some tailgate fun. I love having guests! Let’s talk about being a good hostess. First, we need…

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…

peanut butter cup crunch ice cream cake

Yeah, that’s a mouthful. When I told people I was making myself an ice cream cake for my birthday they all said some variation of “Wow, that sounds ambitious!” Of course, that was after the brief moment of being judgmental that I insist on making my own birthday cake every year. Store bought baked goods?…

new kitchen & copycat chicken salad

Whoa this has been a crazy start to June. I started a new clinical rotation last week which I LOVE, but it has made my commute extremely long which is throwing off my schedule. And I’m a girl that likes her routines, to say the least. What’s even more exciting is that we finally moved!…

loaded turkey burgers

True life: it’s 9:30 on a Friday night and I just got home from school. I put on sweats and now I’m allowing the Real Housewives of Orange County to educate me on the true definition of bullying. Speaking of television, those AT&T commercials with the kids have not gotten old at all. Especially the…

best of baltimore: between bread

I just gave the most painful tour of my career. This includes 3 years of tour-guiding prospective students and crazy parents at Loyola, and about 14 months of food tours in Federal Hill and Little Italy. I felt like I was carrying on a conversation with myself- these people were ROUGH. I didn’t think it…
