Hi everyone! It’s been a heck of a break. And even though everyone, everywhere–including me–will tell you that taking an 8-month break from your blog is an awful idea, I think it actually turned out pretty well. To recap, Dressler Makes Things became the topic of my honors thesis for Barrett, The Honors College at […]
Happy March, everybody! First and foremost: if you’re looking for a new book to fill your idle hours, please please please read The Brief History of the Dead by Kevin Brockmeier. I made the mistake of reading it in a public place (I got all sniffly), AND I made the mistake of thinking I could […]

Welcome to Scratch That! This is where I, a real, live 20-something with minimal cooking experience, test out “quick-and-easy” recipes, food-related lifehacks, and other outlandish culinary claims. This installment quickly explores the technique of removing eggshells from a bowl by wetting your fingers first. Spoiler: It doesn’t work. I was hopeful. I thought it might. […]
The 11th of February is upon us! Whether or not you care that Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, links abound! Here’s what my brain has been happily munching on, all across the internet.

Read below for the week’s meal-plan related trials and tribulations. Dressler’s Confessions of a Meal Plan MONDAY This was the […]
Hello, sweet readers! Is it just me, or has this week been…ridiculously long? But great things have happened.
