The Search for the Perfect Yellow Cake: Part 1

The Search for the Perfect Yellow Cake: Part 1

My friend and I have decided to search for the perfect yellow cake. The idea for this search started when my friend told me that she was craving a yellow cake with chocolate frosting – the prototypical cake in my mind. She asked me if […]

This Sunday, I went to a Brazilian-themed party that I later found out was a party in honor of the World Cup game with Brazil playing against the Ivory Coast. I arrived just in time to see the recap of the game, but since I’m […]

Sunday, February 7th, was….*gulp*…my birthday. Whew! There. I said it. I know my mom’s proud and shocked. It has taken me years to admit my birthday publicly to friends, students, and strangers. Usually I don’t tell anyone and don’t even celebrate the day of my […]
