Do you ever feel like people are always doing typical seasonal, outdoorsy activities?
I saw my first orange leaves today and all of a sudden I couldn’t wait for it to be fall.
Moving to New England for school at the very beginning of fall is going to be something special and I couldn’t be anticipating it more. At the same time, I totally understand clinging to summer as it begins to slip away.
So why not a dessert that’s kind of in the middle?…
My first memory of Japanese food involves udon.
My dad used to take me to an Asian market/restaurant by our house that was surprisingly authentic. We would split a vegetable croquette (Think potatoes and vegetables, deep fried. I know) and each get a noodle dish. He would always get soba noodle soup (buckwheat noodles), and for some reason, I’d get zaru udon….
Peaches are kind of the ultimate summer fruit. (Sorry mango, you win almost every other time, but let peaches have this one)
So it’s kind of a shock to me that I have only one other peach recipe on this blog! Clearly I’m just an ‘eat them fresh’ kind of person. However, when I do bake my peaches, I love them with a little pastry….
Oh, kitchen fails. When your counter has been floured, wiped down, and floured again and you are slowly depleting your brown sugar supply with nothing to show for it.
Sometimes, (especially when it comes to vegan baking) things (yes I’m talking about you, crumbly linzer cookies!) don’t work out. So I like to beat the complicated-baking-frustration with simple but delicious foods….
In a month from today, I’ll be on campus at Wesleyan!
While it seems fast, it’s mindblowing to me that I have an entire month at home to just relax and prepare for college….
There are a lot of fancy-schmancy desserts I want to try, but I’m a little intimidated by.
Macarons, for one. Homemade puff pastry. Croissants. Donuts….
I’m calling it right now, this is the prettiest salad you’ll ever eat.
Raw beets just do the most gorgeous things when it comes to color, am I right?…
I need a word for the feeling when you’re simultaneously relieved and disappointed that something is over.
This past weekend, I performed my arangetram, a 2-3 hour solo bharatanatyam dance recital with a live orchestra (that included my dance teacher, who is also my mother!)…
Sometimes the best desserts are hybrids.
I’m talking brookies, donut muffins, and of course, cronuts….
