Homemade Caramels

Homemade Caramels


For me, weekends mean making treats and eating waaay too much sugar. Tea is constantly being made with maybe a movie thrown in. Sweatpants optional.

Who's with me??

Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Strawberry Banana Smoothie


I love being busy again!

Okay, maybe it's a love-hate relationship. I love that I am teaching and doing what I love, but I also hate that I have less time to cook and bake...which I also love. Also looking through other food blogs. If only there were more hours in the day!

Broccoli Pasta Bake

Broccoli Pasta Bake


Yesterday was my first day at my new teaching job, and I love it!

Maybe this is just the thrill of doing something you love, or if it's the students who are surprisingly respectful and eager to learn.

But what they don't tell you is that you need to drink throughout the day. ... Water I mean! I was so dehydrated by the end of the day, I was getting a serious headache. But I am looking forward to the next week!

Chia Seed Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies

Chia Seed Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookies


Do you know what is almost as fun as spending your entire day lesson planning? Taking out some cookies that your coworker made for you last week and realizing that they have gone bad.

After taking one huge bite.

Then spitting it all out onto the plate. At least I was alone at the time. They looked so good too!

Kimchi Fried Rice

Kimchi Fried Rice


Long weekends are meant to be enjoyed in the most lazy way possible. Am I right? So why is it that, after going to sleep at around 1:30 AM, I woke myself up at 7 AM without feeling even a little bit tired?

Did I want to be productive? Make an elaborate breakfast? Or was my being awoken by me blurting (out loud may I add) "AU REVOIR" really loudly embarrass me into crawling out of bed and hoping my boyfriend didn't hear.

Why I am having dreams in French, one can only guess.

Peanut Butter Mini Egg Mug Cake


Okay, well this was pretty much inevitable.

My love for mug cakes and Easter approaching? Yeah. I have no surprises up my sleeve.
