Yesterday was a whole month since I have been back in South Africa. That means that my whirlwind circumnavigating-the-world experience has been over for over a month! And I have written painfully little since I’ve been back. (What, I did have good reasons – namely exams and clinical rotations, wham-bam-thank-you-ma’am.) I spent a lot ofContinue reading “Semester at Sea: Happies and Crappies”
This week’s theme for The Daily Post’s Photo Challenge is “Foreign”. I’ve had two opportunities to travel beyond the borders of South Africa – once to Canada and Connecticut/NYC, and the other to China. For Canada I was in Montreal, and the French certainly made me feel relatively non-local. But China? In China I wasContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge : A Foreigner in China”
While Little Sister was job shadowing at the local rehab, they spent a day helping patients find their way around the kitchen. One of the patients had to make scones, which he then gave to the nurses at the ICU. Anycase, the recipe seemed so amazingly simple that we had to give it a try.
Yvonne at Trials in Food posted this wonderful recipe for Peanut Butter cookies. As you might recall, while on break I tend to unleash my ill-formed powers upon the kitchen, and this seemed an easy enough opportunity. The recipe calls for a mixer, I mixed by hand. It’s notably tough, but manageable.
As a rule, I do not review non-medical books on this blog, unless it forms part of a Top Ten Tuesday. However, since my recent discovery of the myriad of book blogs, Goodreads and the ability to read while maintaining my schedule has led to me rather bravely attempting a bookish challenge, I have decidedContinue reading “Book Review: Kitchen Confidential”
Since my last post regarding the delicious names doctors tend to give medical morphologies elicited such a nice response, I decided to share some more. Warning: the following post may or may not result in a loss of appetite. (Lindt) Chocolate Cyst – I just added the Lindt by myself. Chocolate is my vice, and so especially is expensiveContinue reading “More Proof of Doctors’ Lack of Imagination”
Sometimes, I like finding like-minded blogs. Blogs that may teach me something new about my field. I like health, and I don’t think health is just about the sciences. But I am not in support of this world-wide frenzy to be “healthy” to such an extent that people are pushed towards eating disorders. Exercise is GOOD. LeadingContinue reading “Weekly Whine: “Health” Frenzy”
…yes, I really did just start a recipe-post like that. The recipe is great, promise. I myself, perhaps not so much. FriendAtMedSchool and I decided to bake cupcakes with nutella icing. This is the Cupcake recipe:
A while ago I wrote about baking, cooking, and my awesome banana bread. Yesterday I made it again (the boy said it was the best he had ever tasted) and I realised I never posted the recipe. So here it is. I think the original recipe is from a South African cookbook called “Kook enContinue reading “Banana Loaf Recipe”
