WIAW #36

Posted by Jennifer (the student) on December 19, 2012 


Hello Everyone. Happy What I Ate Wednesday!  I am sharing my meals from last Sunday. This day, I was busy preparing for finals so all my meals were at home. Today I have my last final, I can’t remember ever having final this late in the year. Tonight I will be celebrating! 🙂 Thank you to Jenn at Peas and Crayons for hosting the WIAW.

This is what I ate:

Breakfast (6:30am)

I started the day with coffee and it was so good I almost forgot to take a picture. My husband made me a couple of poached eggs with a little cheese.



Lunch (1:00pm)

I pick-up these sandwiches about once a week from a Japanese bakery in Tustin called Cream Pan. I love these simple finger sandwiches, they come boxed with four different sandwiches; turkey, tuna, egg salad and ham. Also, I had some homemade broccoli soup that I made earlier in the week.




Dinner (6:00pm)

I took a break from studying to make dinner. Pea and pancetta pasta, good old comfort food.


Dessert (7:00pm)

I had one of the best cinnamon rolls I have ever had. A friend of mine has a cinnamon roll business, Susie’s Sinnamon Rolls. And she surprised me by sending me a dozen, I am so lucky!  Yum! 🙂



Thank you for stopping by. I hope your day was full of healthy meals!

Ishler Cookies


Posted by Jennifer (the RD) on December 19, 2012

This is a special cookie recipe that my mom has started using about 20 years ago.  She cut out from a womens’ magazine, but I’m not sure which one.  It is a very unusual cookie, and not very easy to make because it is so fragile, but it is so good!  The trick is to chop the walnuts super fine!  🙂


  • 1 ½ cups sifted flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 ½ cups finely chopped walnuts
  • ¾ cup cold sweet butter
  • 6 oz. semisweet chocolate pieces

Mix flour, sugar, and walnuts together.  Knead in butter until smooth and firm.  Work quickly to prevent butter from softening.  Chill dough 1 hour.  Roll out on a floured surface to 1/8 inch thickness.  Cut into 2 inch rounds.  Place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees  for 10-15 minutes or until cookies are lightly browned.  Cool on cookie sheets.  Melt the chocolate in a pan over hot boiling water (double boiler).  Spread a thin layer of chocolate over the cookies.
