Soft Pumpkin Cookies

pumpkin cookiesThe past two weeks have been the most challenging so far during the entire 3 years of pharmacy school. The days have been long, the service I’m on in the hospital is fast-paced, and the cases have been very challenging….but I love it! Ending my second week on this rotation, I was reflecting upon my work and realized I have never once looked at the clock and thought, “When will the day be over, when can I go home?” I truly enjoy spending the day working for my patients and making sure they are safely getting their medications. I am getting used to the long hours, but I still really miss having more time in my kitchen and working on new recipes for MSFK. I have always tried to balance my love for cooking/blogging with pharmacy, but for the next 4 weeks I will be more focused on learning as much as I can for my general medicine rotation. It is taking up all of my time right now, but I am loving the work I am doing!

Here is my latest creation from my kitchen: soft, thick pumpkin cookies drizzled with a little glaze. They have a hint of spice, and are perfect for tea time! The weather has been getting cooler in San Francisco, and it is starting to really feel like fall lately. Time to break out those boots and scarves!

    First of all, I don’t know how you can manage a blog AND pharmacy school. What a brutal schedule (my oldest was a pharmaceutical science major and didn’t want to go for a PharmD). Second, these cookies look perfect for fall…soft and yummy!

    I agree with Liz and Jennifer – your current rotation is more than a full time job, and you’re blogging too? We certainly appreciate it, but wowzer, you’re one busy person at the moment. Anyway, great cookies – thanks for taking the time to share with us.

    First of all completely second what Liz feels, can’t imagine how you manage a blog and job. It is a lot of work. But keep it up and kudos to you and all the best.
    The cookies are perfect cushions and love the use of pumpkins.
