Thanksgiving break is such a tease. I love it before and while it happens, but when it’s all said and done I start to wish we had just gone to class all week. I’m sure many of you are in the same boat as me, but I have SO much work to do over the […]

Ah, Thanksgiving. Such a glorious time! In the past, I didn’t really dig Thanksgiving. My young taste buds weren’t crazy about sweet potatoes, dressing, pecan/pumpkin pie, or cranberry anything. Thank goodness they’ve matured because Thanksgiving food is the bomb! And I love the family time! We spent a good portion of the meal discussing the […]

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 […]

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 […]

So ever since I started eating oatmeal, cereal totally lost all of its appeal. I HATE soggy cereal, so I always felt rushed to gobble up the cereal in 2.4 seconds. Cereal also doesn’t fill me up like oatmeal does and I USED to think that you couldn’t do toppings with cereal. The only two […]

APPLES APPLES APPLES!! I feel like an apple nerd. All I do is post about apples. And today I have two apples to discuss. Actually three. 1. Macintosh appleOkay, on a side note, I just realized/connected that Apple’s Mac computers = Macintosh Apple. STUUUUUPID!Uh, anyways, I had one on Tuesday. I could have sworn I […]

First order of business = Great Apple Experiment. After eating another Pink Lady, I’ve decided that they have a floral taste, not exactly like honey, but it has that same flowery kind of taste to it. That makes no sense. Lately I’ve been debating whether or not I want to do a new style of […]

Before my ode to oatmeal, I want to share a (stupid) little experiment I’ve decided to indulge in – try every kind of apple available in the Athens area. Shouldn’t take too long, but I want to do it anyway. I realized while reading through other food blogs that I’ve been fairly conservative in my […]

I’ve only recently started to like bananas. For a while, they were a nasty smelling fruit that I had to eat 4 times a week to ward off leg cramps, toe cramps, foot cramps, etc. at swim practice. I hated bananas. Dislike by association, I suppose. Once I began college and started eating on the […]

3 Fruits, 3 Recipes

So, today ended up being a really eventful day, in that I tried out three new recipes. One was from a random blog comment, one was from Sunny Anderson (Cooking for Real) and the last from my favorite, Giada DeLaurentiis (Everyday Italian). Hopefully one of these days I’ll start making my own recipes for a […]
