this week,

crimini mushroom omelette w/ parmesan and chives
a wholesome breakfast to start off the semester right
nutrients much needed to kick start my brain after a month of keeping it on the shelf 
as you can see, it snowed the first day... the first few days the high temp never broke freezing :/

and now, for my favorite!!

i've seen a few pictures of these floating around online, and decided to attempt it for myself.


cream puffs are surprisingly easy to make, 
the pastries are basically water, butter, salt, eggs, and flour.
i halved this recipe, and piped the dough into totoro shapes

light, crispy shells filled with hand-whipped vanilla cream. 
decorations of royal icing and dark chocolate.
delicious, and cuuuuute!

the whole gang
