If only statistics was as much fun as my kitchen.

It's a problem belonging to so many blogs. Luckily, the fashion/design blogs aren't a problem simply because I don't have the money. The problem lies in the food blogs. Lately I have obsessed over the recipes. I just want to try ALL of them from the African Peanut Stew to the Channa Masala to the Cocoa Brownies. It seems that is all I can think about is, "when I can have a chance to turn on the oven, or heat up the stove? How will I adapt the recipe to be my own?" Instead of thinking of what significance p-values and t-distributions have (statistics midterm Thursday), I have been thinking about what flavors I can add to spice up winter greens, or how to lighten up these sweet desserts. To motivate myself to study, I planned on spending all of Thursday night baking. But tonight, I completely caved. I forgot about the textbooks, the stress of work, and cranked up the oven (and the music). I finished dipping the last of the truffles and tried out SK's cocoa brownies. (My goal for the month of February is to become a better bake.) I don't know if I feel any less stressed, but I will definitely have something sweet to share with my friends tomorrow.
