roasted bell pepper toasts

i haven't posted in forever. i'm so terribly sorry. life gets hectic when you're a full-time student, you work part-time, and are preparing for auditions and lessons with other professors. however, last night jake and i made this delicious recipe and i just had to share it with you all!
how our batch turned out.
these are roasted bell pepper toasts and they are to die for. 
seriously, they're delicious.
we were looking for a bruschetta recipe but decided to go with this instead. 
good thing we did.

click that link, roast some peppers, and you won't regret it.

til next time...

the swing of the things

i have been gone from my blog for far too long! i think i have some pretty good excuses though.

excuse #1: school started
excuse #2: i'm teaching every night
excuse #3: house/dog sitting for some friends
excuse #4: nothing too interesting has been happening

they're good, right? maybe i'm not cut out for the whole blogging thing; i'm definitely not going to make it a full time job.

school started last week and though i'm only taking about 14 credits, it still feels like a lot. it helps that one of them is a graduate course and the other two big ones are gen eds that require way too much work. not only that but with the addition of a few more students to my personal little studio, i manage to keep busy during the day and at night. i have about 16 students now? something around that number. it's all fun though, except for the school part. 

i've been watching this handsome fella...
poor quality, i'm sorry.
for the past half week and it's been pretty delightful.
i can count on him to wake me up every morning from around 7:30 - 8. except i won this morning and woke up before him. i think he was kind of confused by it.

just gettin' back into the swing of things. here's to hoping it won't be too long before i post again.
