cucumber feta salad

Yesterday was a rough day. I won’t give you the nerdy dirty details of my life as an audiology intern. We’ll do an analogy instead. Let’s say you go to your pediatrician, or perhaps a primary care physician given that you are likely over 18. He/She is doing a routine test, and goes to tap…

mahi mahi with mango salsa

Before I get to this fantastic recipe, a quick public service announcement. Did anyone see The Today Show earlier this week when they had a guy on promoting his new “Six Weeks to OMG” diet? (Really, you chose that name?) In case you missed it, here’s a rundown of what he recommends: 1) Skip breakfast….

oatmeal raisin cookie dough dip

It hasn’t even been 48 hours and I’m already struggling with the absence of chocolate in my life. Sad. So let’s talk about things I love other than chocolate. Or rather, I’ll babble on and you’ll read reluctantly. FUN! Ready set go. 1) The Bachelor. I’m not even embarrassed. I can’t get enough. Not a huge…

ritz cracker cod

I have a few things to get off my chest. I dislike when people walk slowly. You’re/your and their/there/they’re misuse drives me up the wall. Girls who exercise with their hair down don’t belong in a gym. Or anywhere. I gag when couples communicate via Facebook, because no one is interested in that information. Shorts…

cheesy potatoes

Hello friends. Like Sheila, I am also experiencing a week in isolation. I came back to Salty Balty for our alumni weekend, but my classes don’t actually start until next Monday. So this week while Molly and Kelly are at work during the day, I’m sleeping for 12 hours a night, drinking too much coffee,…

silom thai cooking school

Okay, jet lag sucks. I haven’t been able to stay up past 10:00, and last night I actually fell asleep while watching Revenge. Who does that?! But I just caught up on 2 weeks of How Sweet It Is and that breathed some life back into me. I want to make her latest crock pot…

what i ate in thailand

I’m BACKKKKK. Did ya miss me? I’ve been home for less than 2 hours after traveling for 36. Part of me feels like a zombie and part of me is bouncing off the walls to eat pasta and Italian bread for dinner after straight Thai food for the past two weeks. I loved it though-…

spaghetti squash

Thursdays are my favorite day. It’s the only day of the week when I don’t have to go to Towson. I sleep in (until 8:30 am.. wild), stay in my pajamas all day, do laundry, get homework done, and get to watch Live with Kelly! All very exciting. Does anyone else think NPH should be…

ratatouille

Forgive me Sheila, for I have sinned. It has been 5 days since my last mug cake blog post. I had a surprise visit from my friend Connor who has been living in Thailand, who came home for two weeks because of the flooding in Bangkok. So exciting! Connor’s visit, not the flooding. Then I…

pumpkin bread

I think I would have thrived in the 1950’s. I’m at my prime in housewife mode. On Tuesday I got out of clinic early and hustled right over to Target/Walmart/Michael’s to begin the Halloween assembly process. Usually I keep my Halloween ideas under wraps, but this is a sneak preview of my costume… Yes, that…
