Long time no post!

Well, it's September, and I'm back in school - so for those of you who think I'm done neglecting my blog, think again. Back to school means pumpkin everything (!), and to me, delicious quick breads and oatmeal cookies (and molasses cookies, and BOURBON BALLS OMG.) Unfortunately, back to school (for me, at least) means cutting back on the booze and baked goods. So pretty much the entire premise of this blog. However, I will be posting (hopefully) from time to time some modified fall recipes that fit into my 24-hour study cycles. Yippee.

I've been playing around with agave nectar and wheat flour, and I have to say, I'm a fan of both. Granted, the nutritional benefits are only marginally better than the good stuff, but agave has a much lower glycemic index, which means I can eat something in it for breakfast and not crash at 9:30 am. I've tried such healthier things in the past (using applesauce instead of half the butter, using pumpkin in chocolate muffins that really should not have had pumpkin in them) so hopefully I'll be able to come up with some good ideas. In the meantime, I'll be hibernating in my little law school hole - see you in the spring!
