Baking the Weekend away

Well even though I had a crazy busy weekend, I don’t have many good photos to show for it!

I managed to squeeze in some baking, it reminded me how much I really love a little baking. Maybe I can squeeze it in once a week?

May I present some Pumpkin Biscotti.

Recipe is from the amazing Simply Recipes, found here.

I like this recipe because it makes the biscotti a little more moist, and chewy. I’m way more of a chewy cookie person then a crunchy cookie person, but I love biscotti because it’s so dippable!

(sorry for the blur!)

With the left over pumpkin I made myself a little pumpkin oats!

Ate while doing a little reading (not for school though!)

My weekend was definitely full, mostly with fun stuff, and it wasn’t nearly long enough…

Well I’m off to get more prepared for the day.

One Week In

And I already feel behind! Wow, Friday already?! Time flies.

Most of my courses are the usual run of mill sciences courses, but there’s one I’m excited for. Can you guess what it might be?

Let me give you a clue…

Still not sure? ok ok, here’s one more clue…

1stweek 006

Think you got it?

Yep, I’m definitely in an Intro to Wine Science. aka, wine tasting for labs. 😀
Guess the alcoholic foodie in me is coming out. I wasn’t originally in this class, but the elective I did have didn’t count as a restricted elective. Instead of fighting it I decided to just find a different course (if one interested me) that would let me in. This one did, and I got in! yay!

My weekend is looking pretty busy… with HOMEWORK. EGAHDS?! is this term starting quickly or is it just me?
I am going out tonight, but just for dinner, and maybe I’ll study up on my wine tasting. 😉

Hope you guys all have more exciting weekend plans then I do.

Sometimes I like to get ahead of myself and be ready for later on:


A beet x 3.

Some toppings":

Tossed, stirred, onto a baking sheet, into the oven for 35ish minutes.

A little crispy maybe, but ready for a salad or for heating up and eating! Or just munching straight from the container. 😉

My weekend has been good, haven’t done much homework, but that’s what Sundays are for! I had a volunteer session yesterday, cooking for families at a neighborhood house. We made a curry squash soup, and a delicious salad. Plus there was some super good bread.

I also went to a little social held in Res this morning staring oatmeals and smoothies! So blog appropriate, but I forgot my camera at home! 😦 Oh well, next time!
