Vegan Eggnog Cupcakes

I’m finally done with the semester! Whoever decided that exams could run until the 19th and then slated my last boring general education requirement class on the last exam period of the last day, 4:30 pm on the 19th, is evil. But now I have time to do more things like baking! Ok, or, if […]

Ginger Miso Soup

Baby, it’s cold outside! I knew that the 75 degree sunny gorgeous weather wouldn’t last, but did it really have to drop from 70 to 20 degrees in one day? My body isn’t a fan of that! I don’t have central heat in my apartment either, so my cats and I feel the impact even […]

Eggnog Chocolate Chunk Scones

When it rains, it pours. I wish that statement were in reference to the weather (Georgia desperately needs water), but it’s more ab0ut life right now. Needless to say, I wish I hadn’t eaten/shared all of these scones by today–I could have used a pick-me-up! Being the holiday season and all (Christmas for me), I […]

Recipe To Come

Rad and Merckx will now model elements of Ginger Miso Soup.

Pass(ive) Voice

Am I the only person disturbed by the New York Time’s use of the passive voice in a cutline?

And now back to my final […]

That Time of the Year Again

It’s that time of the year again. Time for parties for hosting, marshmallows for roasting (toasting? Can you roast a marshmallow???), and caroling out in the snow… …um, no. It’s finals week(andahalf). It’s time for stress, no sleep, too much coffee (way too much coffee, I’m getting sick of drinking it), too much typing, and […]

Winter(ish) Walking

Thanks to a bicycle accident last week, my soul has been getting a workout lately. Today I walked a total of 8 or 9 miles to and from school. Being unable to ride a bike definitely slows down life. And what I would give for a working, efficient public transit system. Ironically it takes 20 […]

Southern Biscuits & Gravy

I’m taking a Southern literature class right now–“The Rough South”–and last night while reading my last novel for the course, My Drowning by Jim Gimsley, I began to crave biscuits and gravy. This isn’t the first time. Over the course of this semester, thanks to all of the lovely biscuit filled southern lit I’ve been […]
