corn & poblano wrap

This is not an adequate title for all the lovely things in this wrap. It is, however, what the Real Deal Deli in Dedham, MA called the wrap which inspired this creation. I had this for lunch one day about a month ago when I was training in Massachusetts and I loooooved it. It’s always…

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…

pasta squarcierella

I’ve got a bone to pick with Barilla. First of all, Kelly and I recently discovered the conspiracy behind their veggie pasta. It’s sold in boxes that are the same size and price as the regular pasta, but they only give you 12 ounces instead of 16. The nerve. It’s like how potato chip bags…

whole wheat apple crumble cookie cake

I’m back in Baltimore! This is exciting because I was really missing my gym. I taught Body Pump on Wednesday night when I got back and I had SIXTY FIVE people in my class and 12 on the  wait list. This has never happened before. Usually I have about 30 or 40 but the room…

butternut squash and couscous stew

I think I had lost sight of how ridiculous group fitness music was until the other night when I was in a Body Attack class and we warmed up to a techno remix of “Bridge Over Troubled Water.” I later told the GS this and he told me HE’S NEVER HEARD THAT SONG BEFORE. Mind….

single serving vegan cookies

Sometimes I think I need to get off social media. Even though the election nonsense is mostly over (Hey, Texas- no one is letting you secede from the union), the things that get put on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. just make me want to hurl. Real tweet: “OMG! People need to STOP telling me I look…

river wraps

With the Olympics starting and all this Phelps/Lochte rivalry, it’s made me start to miss swimming. I think Sheila and/or myself have mentioned several times that we were on the swim team in high school. Senior year, though, we both had the unfortunate circumstance of being injured. She, with shoulder problems. Me, with an ovarian…

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…

whole wheat pasta with sausage and kale

I have a neuroanatomy midterm tomorrow. Why am I blogging? Perhaps because Sheila has seemingly forgotten about the blog and abandoned us all. Auf Wiedersehen. Perhaps because I’m so giddy about going home to Camillus tomorrow for spring break that I can’t focus on the cards I’ve been flashing since Sunday. Or perhaps because I’ve…

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…
