Who’s ready for Juno? Uh not me. You’d think that after three Boston winters and ten years of living on the east coast I’d be used to the winter and the snow, but it hasn’t happened yet. Josh makes fun of me since he’s from all the way up in Wisconsin so this stuff is nothing to him. Psh. Sometimes I think he just says things like that to annoy me. Anyway, so I’ve never understood why everyone goes to the market and stocks up on food like the apocalypse is coming. You know what I did? I filled my Brita pitcher and bought some granola bars. Come at me, Juno, I’m ready. Here’s to hoping my grandparents don’t read this post and have an aneurism. Seriously I remember when I was home alone during Sandy a few years back and my grandparents freaked and came over to buy me a zillion provisions. Given, Sandy was pretty awful, but I definitely didn’t need four cases of water. Continue reading
Does it make me a bad person if I refused to make anything pumpkin until the pumpkin recipe blogging phase died down? Seriously I didn’t want to be just one of a zillion pumpkin recipes online at the same time, so now that it’s 2015 and no one else is blogging about it, let’s break out the squash! Continue reading
Omigosh you guys happy holidays!! I didn’t fall off the world again, although I was in backwoods Michigan for a while so that counts right? Haha only kidding, although it was quite an experience.
I hope everyone had a wonderful whatever December holiday you celebrate! I’m looking forward to the new year how about you? However, in preparation for the new year I would like to tell you another Rebecca’s College Adventures story in hopes that maybe this will be the last one and I can start being a grown up or something? Maybe? I’ll try my best!
Guess what! I’m alive and I baked you a pie. Ok fine, technically I baked the pie for my family at Thanksgiving, but you can pretend that I love you or whatever makes you happy. Sorry I’ve been so out of commission! First off I was really sick with some virus for about two weeks, so that whacked me out for a while and then I’ve also been crazy busy with life and school and everything. Agh so many things to do and definitely not enough time. -_-. Anyway so I’ll try to stick to the food front of things, although I have another Rebecca’s Ratchet College Adventures story to share probably in my next post so there’s that. Also I found a professor to work with me on an independent study for next semester! I am going to be doing a study on the history of dessert culture! So excited! 😀
I don’t think I’ve ever felt like this much of a sleep-deprived college student. Last year I pretty much had all my sh*t together, but now with taking five classes and all the tutoring I do, sometimes I think I’m losing my mind. It probably doesn’t help that I had a midterm on Monday and didn’t start studying until Saturday and then stayed up until…not going to tell you what time cramming the night before. Let’s just say, coffee flavored candy makes a really awesome breakfast the morning of an exam. Don’t tell my mom–she always made us eat eggs or other healthy stuff before a test when I still lived at home haha. In my defense, it was my grandma who gave me the candy so clearly this is all on her XD. Continue reading
So I don’t usually apologize for desserts, but I really do need to make amends for this one. In my defense, I have a really good logic for this one that I actually came up with post-creating, but it totally still counts. What does a moderately lactose intolerant, probably shouldn’t be eating so much sugar, with a stomach that definitely does not respond well to apples person create when they’re trying to make a dessert that they should in no way be eating? Well, my friends, she made apple muffins. With ice cream. I know what you’re thinking–oh so she made muffins and then put ice cream on top of it when they were done. Isn’t that what people always do with apple pie? Good thinking, but no. That’s not what I did… Continue reading
Hello friends, time for another story about Rebecca’s college laundry adventures. So you know how they say that your brain doesn’t fully develop until you’re 26 or something? I feel that is applicable to the fact that somehow I keep neglecting to do my laundry until I literally have nothing respectable left to wear. This leads me to make some uh avant-garde fashion choices on the days that I actually end up doing laundry because I usually put all my clothes in the machine and then realize I have nothing to wear to go retrieve said clothing.
