National Chocolate Cake Day 2012

Image
Friday, 27 January is National Chocolate Cake Day in the U.S.  Why, I have no clue.  There appears to be no corporate sponsorship (unlike the Pie Day earlier in the month).  I brought mini chocolate cake donuts to volunteer-work.

Pancakes, as American as Walt Whitman

Pancakes!  I have a well-formed recipe.  Been reading Whitman, hence the "well-(past participle)".


Quickbread for a Quick Post | Apple Butter Chocolate Chip Muffbars

Image
Snowed in today.  Much thesis-ing, besides making sushi filled with a rice-and-lentil moosh, blending hommos, and baking & chilling coconut cream pie.   At this point, I still owe a "how to frost a cake" post and a "bread pudding" post.



Good bring-to-work/class fare: I made these bars many times in spring 2011 since these are a convenient way to use up bananas fast going south or a third of a jar of apple butter or a bit of pumpkin...you get the idea.

A Bouquet of Shout-Outs | Rice Pudding

This being the month of January, it’s time I took stock of a few things.  Some people (who are not related to me) have been incredibly good to me in the past few weeks whom I’d like to recognize.



Pound Cake

Image
Pound cake!  Without a pound of anything in it.  I’m probably not the best judge of taste since I have a cold, but it tasted pretty darn good.  



Quinoa and Chix Kickasserole

Today, besides thesis work and figuring out my operations here (laundry, organizing my food in the pantry and freezer), I made a big entrée to portion out and freeze for munching throughout the year.  I ate some soup on Thursday that I made in May, hence why I say that I will eat frozen entrees throughout the year.



Transition Week | Banana Sour Kream Cake

Image
O hai!



It’s Caturday, and I remembered I needed to make a blog post for this week in order to keep up my minimum.  It’s been a transition week as I’m living in Alexandria and volunteering in D.C. for the month of January.  My health is in transition too; I picked up a cold as I adjusted to the early hours I keep while volunteering in the city.
