CCK Goes to College: Part 1

Pin It!

CCK Goes to College Even from those of you who have followed my blog all along, I’ve kept much of my personal life a mystery. Partially, I was worried about privacy. However, I also simply didn’t think anyone would be interested in hearing about my daily life. But since I seem to be wrong (I […]

NYC never Sleeps

Pin It!

I think last night was the worst night of sleep I’ve ever gotten in my life. Even though I climbed into bed at 10ish, I didn’t fall asleep until midnight… and I woke up at 1:45, wide awake! At around 3, I gave up and grabbed a book to read, hoping it would make me […]

Hello from CCK (again)

Pin It!

My blog is going through a change. (No, not that change!) I started this blog for fun. As the number of readers climbed, it made me a little nervous. I became much more cautious about privacy; I stopped posting friends’ photos and shared much less of my own personal life as well. But I’m afraid this […]

The difference between Girls and Boys

Boysenberries, that is Chocolate-Covered Snack: Fresh-from-the-garden boysenberries and High-Protein Chocolate Cake Every year since I can remember, we’ve grown a few fruits and veggies. Tomatoes, strawberries, peppers, and zucchini are favorites. But I definitely wouldn’t say I have a “green thumb.” Once, a cactus even died on me. How do you kill a cactus?! And often, wild […]

Easy Homemade Ice Cream Trick

Pin It!

Every chef has a few tricks up her sleeve apron. One of mine is the Voluminous Oatmeal Trick. Or the plump-up raisins trick, the melted-banana trick, and now: the “Sir Mix A Lot” ice cream trick. It might seem like making Vita-Mix ice cream is simple. Just throw a bunch of frozen fruit in the blender and […]

Things I love about running outside: It really wakes me up Two words: second breakfast I get a chance to play my favorite “Running and Imagination” game It affords me the chance to clear my mind It’s a great way to take in the scenery I feel like a warrior (especially when passing other runners) […]

Just Like Carnation Instant Breakfast

Pin It!

Only better. In middle and high school, it was always difficult for me to fathom when one of my friends would say, “Oh I never eat breakfast.” Wha?? How on earth did they find the energy to churn out essays, listen to interminable lectures, and just function in general? I ate breakfast every day, yet […]

Can I hug a What?

Voting for the next Hug-a-_____ Month is still going on. As of right now, it looks like Hug-a-Fruit is winning. But even if the one you want doesn’t win this month, we’ll probably get around to all of them at some point.
