The Student's Lament

I know. I have not blogged in almost two months. But I am not going to apologize...I have been spending a lot of time in the kitchen! Just...not cooking. Ryan and I bought a house and it needs a lot of work. So along with that, we got the marvelous task of redesigning/decorating a kitchen! Our black granite counters went in today!

I have also been spending a lot of time studying. Yes, I am a student. And that means I have exams and papers and group projects all fighting for my time. Not to mention the fact that I am trying to fit in my remaining required volunteer hours before my internship starts in January, while maintaining my roles as wife, daughter, sister, friend, accompanist, and president of the Student Dietetic Association at UK. I am grateful that I have the strength to do all of these things, but I am looking forward to the holidays when I will (hopefully!) have lots more time to cook up my new kitchen!

Here are some pictures of things I've made, but not posted about. If you take a liking to any of them, just holler and I will direct you to the recipe.

Fried Nutella Wontons

Stuffed and Grilled Jalapenos

Pappardelle Pasta with Steak and Parmesan

Bourbon Glazed Peaches with Homemade Vanilla Yogurt

Chocolate Chip and Brown Sugar Bundt Cake

Sauteed Toast and Vanilla Apples with Whipped Cream

Baked Apple Donut Holes


  1. I can't wait to see pictures of your finished kitchen! That has to be so exciting (:

    You can't leave us hanging with these scrumptious pictures and no recipes. I'm interested in the chocolate chip & brown sugar bundt cake and the pasta (did you make the noodles?!).

    I just tried Nutella for the first time last week and it's SO yummy. Your wontons look so good right now (:

  2. I need those apple donut holes! Those look amazing! I can't wait to see pictures of your kitchen, please share :)

  3. I want the recipes for the first three! :-)
