Sometimes, when in training, a person has days where she really needs some ice cream. For me, that would be everyday. But ice cream everyday is not a good idea, especially when trying to stay in shape. So, the Internet has given us … Continue reading
When I visited Momofuku Milk Bar at the end of June, I got a whole goodie bag full of cookies, but sadly, blueberry & cream was not one of them! This was one of the cookies I helped make, though, … Continue reading
Can you tell I don’t like wasting things? I’ve written six posts about using leftovers from one recipe as a base for another- Pancake Oatmeal, Stout and Cream(er) Cheese Brownies, Oreo Peanut Butter Cake Pops, Cheesecake-Stuffed Snickerdoodles, Leftover Frosting Cookies, and Pie … Continue reading
When I tell people I’m a vegetarian, the most common question they ask is, “What do you eat?” And usually I fumble around and mumble a little because I don’t really pay attention to my dinners anymore and I don’t … Continue reading

I’m training for a 10K!
The race is in seven weeks on September 22nd, so I have that long to get myself to run 6.2 miles straight within a reasonable time. Currently, I can do about 3.5. My training started yesterday while I was in Vermont, and I did 3.34 miles with my dad right behind me. I find it’s encouraging to have someone run with me, as it helps me to keep going and not stop for a walking break. We ran 3.34 miles in 35 minutes, which is fine with me! Running in the mountains is one of my favorite things to do, because the air is so clean and fresh, and also it’s a change of scenery from my own town. I get really bored running the same route all the time and it makes me tired, so vacation running for me is a blessing.
