Hello Friends! I am officially looking for jobs in the Twin Cities.  The original plan was to start school at the university here in January, which meant re-taking that awful Chemistry II class in Nebraska for the next five weeks (one of those intense Monday through Friday, three labs a week, homework daily, a test…

{Recipe Round-Up} What to Take to Thanksgiving

 Hello Friends! Are you a host or an invader? This is the question I overheard someone asking at school the other day while talking about Thanksgiving break.  I’m assuming it was a cheeky way of saying “Are you having people over for Thanksgiving or going over to someone else’s house?” If you are a host,…

Whole Wheat Chocolate-Peanut Chip Oat Cookies

Hello Friends! Now say this 10 times fast! Yes, it’s a long name for a cookie, but I have so many cookie recipes that I really need to get more specific.  I wanted to name them semi-healthy delights, but will I remember what exactly that means a year from now when I’m looking for the…

Banana Spiced Muffin Top Cookies

Hello Friends! Sometimes an accident can be a wonderful thing.  Take these Banana Spiced Muffin Top Cookies, for example. I was going for cookies, but the texture and taste were so close to that of a banana muffin that I couldn’t just call them a cookie.  And of course they don’t really look like muffins…they…

Happy Friday Friends! Well I was going to run 6 miles this morning.   Then when my alarm clock went off I convinced myself I should just run after class…and therefore right before work. We will see how that goes huh?  With warm temps and little time to run a distance that I’m not sure I’ve…
