2012: Most Popular Posts on Bunsen Burner Bakery
2012 was a huge year around here!
I finished my Ph.D.! It’s official — Dr. Julie! And with the end of my indentured servitude to my grad school lab came a move from D.C. to Philadelphia to start in a new lab for my postdoc research. After many years of long distance marriage, my husband and I are living together again (…for 6 more months, until he moves for fellowship in July…).
We bought a house! With air conditioning in the kitchen! And we just adopted a dog!
It’s been a big year of changes.
These really big changes also explain my (long) absence over the past 6 months – our life has been boxes and moving and unpacking and adjusting.
But hopefully I’ll start blogging again soon.
And in the meantime, I couldn’t resist popping back in for another annual update of my most popular posts of the year.
What can I say — as a scientist, I’m a data nerd!
5) Blackberry Peach Galette
A rustic fruit galette, filled with freshly picked blackberries and peaches.
4) Asparagus & Walnut Pasta
Crunchy asparagus and walnuts, paired with al dente pasta and green onions, garlic, and Asiago cheese.
3) Candy Cake
Simple yellow cake covered with simple chocolate frosting… but there’s nothing simple about this M&M and Kit Kat covered candy cake!
2) French Macarons
French macarons: not as hard as you think. Relax, don’t stress, and maybe you’ll be really lucky, too.
1) Homemade Cannoli
Traditional homemade cannoli with deep fried shells and a smooth ricotta filling. It’s like having an Italian bakery right in your own kitchen!
