We’re baaaack

9 May

First off, happy mother’s day to all the great moms out there. An author once said, “A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.”

Second, I sincerely apologize for being MIA the last few weeks. School is nutty lately with finals, IB exams, and the dreaded Extended Essay due next week (which I have yet to start). Not to mention prom last weekend and the Stanley Cup playoffs.

Third, speaking of hockey, I’d like to give a shout out to the Flyers: it was a great season guys, you fought well until the end and I already can’t wait for next year when we’ll go even farther.

On to the good stuff! Going all the way back to Spring Break, I unfortunately didn’t go anywhere warm, but I did make a kick-ass carrot cake on Easter. It’s from the Frog Commissary cookbook: http://www.grouprecipes.com/14539/the-frog-commissary-carrot-cake.html.

In honor of the Royal Wedding on the 29th, I made these lemon cookie pies (they seemed like something you’d have at tea!): http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/claire-robinson/lemon-pie-cookies-recipe/index.html. They come out of the oven a little crunchy but after the sit for a while with the icing in between they’re nice and soft.

Yesterday, a few friends and I ventured down to Reading Terminal Market for the ultimate selection of awesome food. I started my lunch with a peking duck roll…

…and finished with some Basset’s ice cream. Guatemalan Ripple on the bottom with Gadzooks on the top. mmmm. There was also a brisket sandwich with sharp provolone from DiNic’s in between.

That’s all I have for today, but I’ll definitely post the lasagna that I made my mom for dinner tomorrow. Here’s some new tunes I’ve found recently:

I started listening to Mac Miller cause I’ll be seeing him at the Roots Picnic in a few weeks, and this is by far my favorite of his songs:

Though it’s a little weird that a character from one my favorite shows, Community, is now rapping, I do love this:

Let me just say, Adele is a goddess and I want to be her. It’s so hard to choose a favorite of her’s so I’ll just throw in a couple:


This one made me cry…


Okay, I hope this super long post made up for being off the grid lately. Have a great week in case I don’t survive my IB Chemistry exam tomorrow and Tuesday!
