It’s prime farmer’s market season, so T and I have been going wild with the fresh produce. In addition to a huge haul at the farmer’s market the other week, my friend also gave me a ton of shit from her garden. I was PSYCHED. She gave me these beautiful little chubby eggplants, and I… Continue reading Eggplant Parmesan and Being Basic
The snow situation has been out of control lately. Last weekend Harriet (my cat) and I decided to hibernate at the boyfriend’s place while a blizzard raged outside. Is there anything better than eating comfort food, snuggling inside, and watching Netflix for hours while it snows like mad outside? Yeah, actually… it gets better when… Continue reading Mushroom and Oat “Meat”balls
I did it… I retired my private pants. It would have been a sad day, except I now have 2 pairs of the GREATEST PANTS ON EARTH.

It doesn’t matter how much I advocate for loving… Continue reading Spinach Tortellini Soup and New Year’s Resolutions
I babysat some kiddos this weekend. Can you believe it? Oh, wait… y’all probably don’t know this, but I’m not really a fan of kids. I mean, as a whole… there are several kids I know personally that I love to pieces. Still, I’m not one to babysit much. Mostly just because I’m not the… Continue reading Butternut Squash Tacos and Babysitting?
I booked another trip to Hawaii. It feels indulgent and grandiose, but I don’t care. I’m allowed. As my luminescent (yes, that is the right word) yoga teacher (and friend) reminded me… I’m allowed to say yes. To life. To love. To adventure. To the things that feed my soul. So here I am… saying… Continue reading Zucchini Corn Salad and Saying Yes
