Taking a break

Hello loyal readers.

I've been working hard to post 2-3 times a week.   Some of my friends have told me they can't keep up.  I thought I would give you some time to peruse.

I'm in Chicago spending time with family and friends this week and then off to Dallas to look at housing this weekend.  I bought a wedding dress yesterday and planned my upcoming trip to Mexico.  I'm having other people cook for me or eating out and enjoying the time I have with the people I love. 

I may post once this week, but I thought this would be a good time to put some of my favorite posts thus far if you feel like you want to look back.  Hope that all is well and that the sun is shining wherever you are.

I'll see everybody next week.


The big bad brussel
One of my first posts, but also one of my favorites.  The genetics behind why some people hate bitter foods

And the Beet Goes On
Why some people, including me, pee red when they eat beets.

A Shout Out to Kraut
Reminiscing on a microbiology lab disaster making sauerkraut and why I still love it.

Why Chai--Caffeine as Medicine
A recipe for fragrant homemade chai and a discussion of the therapeutic uses of caffeine including a cure for headaches. 

Maple Syrup Pork Roulade--homage a Maillard
A recipe for a beautiful spicy marinated stuffed pork roulade and a gracious thanks to my college adviser for all he did for me.  Thank God I never have to use a test tube again. 


  1. Good luck in Dallas! Let me know if you need any pointers!

  2. Thanks for the great posts, and bon voyage(s)!

  3. Thanks ladies! Had a great time in Chicago and in Dallas and I think we found an apartment.
