Crab Stuffed Mushrooms with Miso and Caramelized Onions

By |August 11th, 2015|

I’ve been unsure how to approach this post. “Hey everyone, I’m back!”? Or “Sorry I’ve been MIA for so long…” or “Let me tell you the amazing story of how I’ve been in the Amazon jungle for the last 10 months!”

Of these approaches, only the first is true. I’m not going to apologize for my […]

House hunting during the winter is a real drag.

If the house has already been vacated, it’s super cold inside and I am seriously put off at the request to remove my shoes and view the house with hardwood floors and tiling in my socks.  My frozen feet will never forgive those realtors.   Plus, you can […]

This day seems to have taken forever to get here.  My school is on April break next week, and it couldn’t have come at a more needed time.  I feel so burnt out, so emotionally ragged that I might just stay in bed for the first weekend and refuse to come out until my batteries […]

My first thought to […]

Yesterday during my last class of the day, I was in the middle of a detailed explanation of a section of a review sheet we were going over, when a male student raised his hand.

“Yes?” I asked.

“Your belly,” he replied quietly.

“Excuse me?” I retorted, not understanding his comment.  He then raised his arm and pointed […]

Curried Chicken Dumplings

By |December 12th, 2012|

It seems to me like the hardest part of my job is about to begin.

Lesson planning, teaching, grading, building relationships with students, and managing classroom behavior: all these daily tasks pale in comparison to what I have to do this week—parent teacher conferences.

First of all, you guys should know that I have an irrational fear […]
