After my calculus quiz tonight, I attempted to draw myself to the best of my ability, trying to capture the deep, deep frustration I was feeling.

SIGH. I gotta move, I end with something more comforting:

Can I have a drum roll please?

A Parmesan Chicken DRUMstick Roll that is...


12 chicken drumsticks
2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
In a shallow bowl, mix together salt, pepper, and cheese. In a separate bowl, beat egg until lemon colored. Dip chicken in egg, coating well. Roll in cheese.
Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 45 minutes, or until brown.

Reviewers said to dispose of the chicken skin. I figured it was because it's fattening. So I thought to myself "fattening sounds good," and left it on this time around. Compared to the first time I made it, I would say, get rid of the skin. It's a bit soggy, or at least that's how it turned out for me. Nonetheless, tasty and so SIMPLE! Eat it with a Caesar Salad....Oh, and as for reheating leftovers: microwave for a minute or so, and then place in toster oven. Good as new.

About a month ago, my sister bought a cookie press that includes cake decorating accessories. I told her I wanted it, and so she gave it to me. She spoils me. hah :) Thanks buddingcook. Anyway, I've been just dying to use it! And today, I got my chance.

Equipped with my new toy, I baked a box of Betty Crocker Carrot Cake Mix as mini and regular sized cupcakes, and filled the cookie press with a tub of their cream cheese frosting. I started to squirt the frosting all over the tops, and after I was done, I realized that the press requires skill and creativity! :( Needless to say, it was not a pretty sight. So I just ended up using the tip of the gun to swirl the cream around. And thank goodness for sprinkles; they made the cupcakes so happy.

Yum! They're really delicious!!! I ate four or five of them.

Calculus Illustrations

Just to let you know, I am still alive! I haven't had the time to blog, even though there have been blog-worthy moments in my life (like these really easy chicken parmesan drumsticks I made...yum!) just because school has been really, really, really exhausting, disappointing, and painful. Anyway, my calculus professor saw one of my illustrations on my notes. He said he liked it. :)
