Updates, updates, updates!

Well, hey there blog! Sorry that I have been so neglectful of you, I truly do feel like a terrible failure. Early December was filled with non-stop studying and finals, which was followed by several days of cleaning, doing laundry, packing and being giddy with the anticipation of getting back to Colorado for a few weeks. Naturally, when I'm home I love to cook lots of meals for my family - I guess it's my favorite way of saying, "I love you." And of course Christmas means lots of baking with my mother and sister. Unfortunately, that wasn't in the cards this year, as this is what my mother's kitchen looks like:

My parents had an addition put on their house and the rest of the construction is still going on, so currently my mother has only a a sink and a stove. The dishwasher has been unhooked for quite awhile and the refrigerator is sitting in the living room - it has kind of been like camping without the marshmallows or cheap beer.

So, I guess all of this is kind of my weak explanation for why I haven't really updated in awhile. Although the last few weeks have mostly entailed frozen pizza, grocery store sushi and eating out I have managed to do a fairly minute amount of baking, which means that I do have a few exciting recipes to share with you.
