Devil’s Food Cake with Strawberry Buttercream

28 May Processed with VSCOcam with a6 preset

I’ve realized important two things.

First, I don’t eat enough bagels.  From a health standpoint, I’m sure I eat enough bagels.  There’s probably not a daily recommended allowance of bagels, although there should be, and it should be 5.  When I got home from the hospital Sunday morning, I stood in front of my fridge for far too long, trying to figure out why I didn’t want to eat anything that was inside (aside from the fact that there’s basically just eggs and string cheese in there).  Continue reading

Double Chocolate Ice Cream Sammies

Sometimes you wake up and heat up day old pizza in your cast iron skillet and eat it for breakfast.

Sometimes you just go to Whole Foods and buy apple cider vinegar and a single coco La Croix and a pint of Jeni’s ice cream. And that’s it.

Sometimes you go to Trader Joe’s before work on a Wednesday and buy a single greek yogurt, an apple, chocolate & sea salt almonds, and peonies. Because how do you show up at the office without those things?

Sometimes, you just do the things that you want to do. Because you’re an adult and you can.

Spring (slash really it’s just Summer-Lite in Texas) is here!

The Accountant and I have already had to turn on our A/C. Because apparently our apartment doesn’t believe in insulation. The weather outside is the weather inside.

Anyway, even though spring/summer brings things like heat and AC and sweating, it also brings super awesome things like baseball and sundresses and fruit pies and like one week of weather where you can do activities outside and bluebonnets.

The funny thing about becoming a physician is that people never stop asking what you want to be when you grow up.  It’s a normal question in high school and college – everyone gets it.  Then you get to medical school, and you think, “Finally here!  I’m gonna be a DOCTOR when I grow up.”

Chocolate Whisky Bundt Cake with PB Glaze and Chocolate-Covered Potato Chips

9 Mar IMG_20140304_212844

Whew. What a title, right?!

I made this cake for my old Roomz and another good friend from law school after they reminded me that it had been a really long time since they had eaten anything “Kate baked.” So, like, maybe I went overboard trying to impress them is what I’m trying to say…

Isn’t it weird how things happen like that, though? You spend three years seeing a person every day and sharing fridge space and borrowing eggs and telling each other to “PLEASE EAT SOME OF THOSE COOKIES SO I DON’T EAT THREE DOZEN BY MYSELF.” And then, one day, you stop doing that. And suddenly, it’s been six months since your old Roomz has eaten anything you’ve baked.

Ugh, change. Amirite?!

Peanut Butter Cupcakes

There are a LOT of things on my to-do list and practically none of them involve studying.  (By practically none I mean…one of them is studying.)

I need to paint my nails in the spirit of Valentine’s Day.  I spent >30 minutes at CVS tonight choosing the PERFECT sparkly pink nail polish.  Also buying new mascara (other tube only has 75% left, clearly need more) and trying not to buy candy because obvi it will be on sale in 2 days.

Blood Orange Quick Bread

What’s funny is that everyday for the past month I’ve said, “Yeah but TODAY I’m gonna write a blog post.”  And then everyday there’s all the studying, and the working out, and the errands, and the Bachelor…and then it’s bedtime.

And now here we are.  In February.  I can count on NO hands the number of posts I’ve written since December.  Because it’s zero.  And because I’m the worst. Continue reading
