Blog spotlight: ECG cookies from Erica’s Sweet Tooth.

We are wrapping up the cardiology section of Physiology. We learned how to read electrocardiograms and what better way to make it a little sweeter than to make ECG cookies?

I saw these pictures from Erica’s blog and had to show them off to everyone. See all of her ECG cookie photographs (and recipe!) here.

Erica’s a genius. She is also a multi-talented dental student/blogger/baker. If you enjoy looking at beautiful pictures of beautiful foods… you need to add her blog to your feeder. Check out more of her posts at Erica’s Sweet Tooth.

And if you are thinking: aren’t you in dental school? Why cardiology? People tend to get nervous when they are at a dentist’s office. This increases blood pressure and heart rate, so we need to know how to recognize problematic heart patterns and to deal with them when an emergency arises. In addition, we need to know about different cardiac medications our patients may be taking before numbing for a procedure or prescribing drugs.

Speaking of smart cookies… I love these Rothko cookies by Mimi O Chun (found via link here).
