This week was scary. And it wasn’t even a full week. I spent three out of the four school days on campus from at least 8:30 – 5:00. School is a full time job. Well, school and shifting heavy books. The British have HEAVY books. Chris and I have been shifting stupid Parliamentary Records for […]

Are there some foods that you really just don’t understand? Food that just tastes blah and you don’t know why it exists at all? For me (since I know you all are SO curious), this would be canned/frozen corn kernels, Kraft Easy Mac, Kid Cuisines, Kix cereal, white bread, Velveeta Cheese, cheapo frozen pizzas, and […]

Today on My Fancy Tuna: BLUNDERS A PLENTY! Is that how you spell a plenty? Or is it aplenty? Or a’plenty? Whatever. Anyways, my blunders vs. winners score is 2-1 this week. Blunders are a blow to my ego when they happen, but afterward (like five minutes) I can usually laugh at my mistakes/stupidity. Except […]

So…Savannah and Charleston. Two beautiful cities that SHOULD be foodie heavens, right? Wrong. At least when said foodie likes “hip,” local, unique restaurants with cool sandwiches, salads, etc, while her family likes more mainstream fare. I’m not hating on my family’s palates by any means, but I was a little disappointed by the food part […]

Great news…I FINALLY went to a farmer’s market today! It was kind of small since it wasn’t the typical Saturday morning event, but I still bought some great local produce! Kayla and I split a loaf of organic rye bread (which is absolutely delicious and chewy), a HUGE summer squash, some interesting zucchini/squash hybrid, a […]

Sorry for the lack of updates….it’s the beginning of the month, which means studying for three tests. Thank goodness I only have to do another two weeks of psycho studying and then SUMMER!! First, apples. This is actually kind of a boring “experiment.” I’m kind of having a hard time differentiating between the different apples, […]

Okay, so making bread is definitely a lot easier when you have a good oven. You all probably think I’m using the “crappy oven” excuse whenever something goes wrong when I’m cooking, but most of the time, it’s really the oven. Oven = Bane of my Existence. Anyways, I was excited to break out my […]

Crappy ovens are a real buzzkill. I’m attempting to bake my first bread (used my stand-up mixer…glorious!) and after an hour of baking, the bread was only half baked. I finally flipped the bread out of the loaf pan into a baking sheet and now it’s baking upside down. The bottom is still all batter. […]
