Tripping At The Finish Line

It's that time of year. Everyone is counting down the days until school is over, and trying to pretend that exams will just disappear. I look back on this past week and I can honestly say, I don't remember it. I feel like so much is going on all at once, that my brain is spinning! Not only am I stressing out about my classes and making sure I have everything in place to graduate, but I'm kind of freaking out about how to finish off my independent project. I want it to be really good, but I don't have anything to measure it by since I'm the only one doing it. So I have been trying to brain storm some ideas and these are the two i've thought of as a final for my project:

1. Create 1 more meal and 1 more dessert. Then create a powerpoint of my trials and what I've learnt from each. With this presentation, serve either an medium sized appetizer platter (with three options) or a dessert platter (with 1-3 options).


2. Create 2 more meals and 2 more desserts. Then create a powerpoint of my trials and what I've learnt from each (No food served).

I think personally, I prefer option one. Mainly because I like sharing the food I make and getting my classes feedback (no pun intended!).

So what should I serve my class with my powerpoint? Desserts? Or Appetizers? Leave a comment with your thoughts!


  1. Desserts. Like Cupcakes, cake, cookies, anything with sugar. :) So I like option one. Not just cause I will get fed. lol

  2. I like option one. I would prefer appetizers, but it might not be a bad idea to do desserts too.
    (I have a sweet tooth too but not as bad as Corrine) :D :p

    1. Ok! So you're thinking a mix of both appetizers and desserts? (:

  3. OPTION ONE... possibly because i want food and i enjoy your cooking. oh yay, and i think a mix of one or two appetizers and one or two mini desserts is a cool idea.

  4. Whether you choose dessert or appetizers, the key determining factor for me would be variety. Not that you have to make one of everything for everyone, but a variety will offer vivid presentation opportunities and will generate more discussion.
