As for food, this week has presented TOO many sweets & treats...and not all dairy-free at that! Yikes...and of course I am required to taste everything...not really, but I do. I want the full experience. However, one bite of everything sure does add up. Biscuits, scones, souffles, empanadas, samosas, quiche, vegan pot pie, spanikopitas, cookies, brownies, etc...in a nut shell (or in a pie crust ;-)), it has been a rich week of food intake. But I am in culinary school, so what should I expect, right? It's not very often you are presented with the opportunity to partake in fancy & delicious food free of cost...just kidding on that free of cost part. :-)
At my sister's request, I have posted pictures with me in them! I'm at the mercy of my classmates for photos as I do not have a camera at the moment...in due time though...

We also had the treat to learn from a gluten-free baker the past two days. Karen Morgan at Blackbird Bakery is quite talented at what she does. She made so many different treats for us to enjoy and all were gluten-free friendly (not vegan though, that is for sure)! A lot of eggs and dairy are used in the recipes, but what she does truly comes down to chemistry - it is absolutely fascinating! Karen has definitely found her niche and I am very much looking forward to finding my niche in this journey as well. :-)
What are you all doing this weekend? Anything fun? Give me a snap shot of your weekend...I like to hear from my followers & readers too!
