This week, I actually had two midterms. I was feeling a little anxious but I had some free time so I decided it was time to bake. At home, I cook and bake almost every day. I absolutely love it. But, while at school because I don’t have a kitchen of my own, I often forget to do what I love. This week, though, I was determined to make a change.
Because Kissam Quad was knocked down this past summer to make room for the new College Halls, (which will be ready for the Class of 2017 when they are sophomores), a few more students than usual were allowed to move off-campus. One of my good friends, Katie, lives across the street from campus in an apartment. Thus, she has a beautiful, fully-equipped kitchen. I begged her to let me use it, and happy for the company (and the leftovers), she graciously agreed.
It really had been a while since I had been in the kitchen, so I went a little crazy. I made snickerdoodle and chocolate chocolate chip cookies, funfetti cake balls dipped in chocolate, and red velvet cupcakes with yellow cream cheese icing. Let’s just say my friends were extremely excited about my baking binge. They were also surprised that I knew how to work the oven, let alone bake things from scratch. I guess I don’t come off as the most domestic of my friends. Since when can a person not have simultaneous dreams of becoming a doctor and a chef?
I suppose that my cooking craving has been satisfied for now. I will home in just 10 days for spring break, and I am planning a cooking class at Whole Foods for CityVU. Stay tuned for those adventures!
