Thursday Things

1)     I didn’t have my 9am class today, so what did I do? Got up at 5:40 and went to spinning class of course!
2)     Then I came back and made this bread. It failed. The middle sunk. But it tastes delicious!
3)     However, I did successfully make 2 dozen chocolate cupcakes, vegan peanut butter bars, and sugar cookies for a social event tonight.
4)     Remember that Top Chef competition? WE WON! My team’s entry of Citrus Crusted Tilapia Tacos was a huge hit with the judges! It was such an amazing experience, and such an honor to win! One of the chefs there said I had professional knife skills! That still makes me beam.
5)     This is a sad, sad sight.
6)     But this makes me happier. Powdered Peanut Butter?! Wha?! This is only further proof that Pinterest is not a complete waste of time.
7)     The fact that I am going to be on my way home in 24 hours is also making me happy. Very, very happy!
8)     I’ve got big plans for Saturday. Aww, yeah. 
Happy Thursday!


  1. I read about powdered peanut butter a few weeks ago. I'd love to hear how it tastes and works in recipes.

  2. It tastes fantastic! I haven't really used it in baking recipes, I actually bought it for my morning oatmeal – it's a bit healthier than regular peanut butter (less fat, more protein). I plan on sticking to regular peanut butter in recipes for the time being because the fat and oil in it is actually ideal for baking with! But, if I make something, I'm sure I'll post it 🙂
