Welcome to my blog, where one may find all sorts of random, hopefully amusing tidbits about food & other things.

carrot cake whoopie pies.

I've been having the weirdest dreams. Usually, they're random, but lately they've been reflecting what goes on during my days ... and I have to say, it kind of worries me.

Two days ago, I was volunteering at a hospice. I chatted for a while with this 100 year old lady who was so so sweet and kept giving me life advice that was pretty applicable (except for the part where I have to marry my [nonexistent] boyfriend, have kids, and stay at home to raise them). I also chatted with and kept company to some people who unfortunately had dementia. That night, I dreamed I was losing my memory and had to be placed in a nursing home .. at age 21. 

Another night, I was reading a novel (House of God) that has to do with the psychological breakdown of a medical intern. I'm pre-med, mind you, and am not looking forward to the lifestyle detailed in the novel. You can imagine the depressing dreams I had that night. 

As a result, I decided I need to start focusing on more positive things, things I know make me happy. I would say carrot cake whoopie pies make me happy.

fortune cookies.

These fortune cookies are from forever ago. A time when I was busy applying for a Director position for RUDM 2014. Since I was applying for the Hospitality team, and wanted a somewhat creative presentation, I decided to make fortune cookies.

I feel like they're one of those things people never think to make from scratch. Like pancakes, waffles, and whipped cream. As is expected, the from-scratch version is always better .. INFINITELY better. I can barely have Reddi-wip anymore! I can't remember the last time I made pancakes from a mix .. well okay, I can't remember the last time I had pancakes.

Anyway, so these fortune cookies. I ended up eating a third of the ones I made .. as I was making them. They were that good.

magic custard cake.

This blew people away when it first entered the online foodie world. The many variations (nut, chocolate, butterscotch) that immediately followed on foodgawker showed that I was clearly not the only one intrigued by this cake.

As a side note, it's been forever since I last blogged. I had a lot going on for a while .. and now it's summer break ("break") and I have a little more time & a lot more ridiculous thoughts, so it's appropos to gradually re-enter this little blog I guess I've created for myself + whoever else may be interested.

Nothing has really changed .. I did get my interest in baking back! It'd gone away for an alarmingly long while as exams and quick meals of roasted veggies dominated my life.
