All Things New & Good

January 9, 2014

Holy moly it has been a while!  I hope everyone (still reading) had a wonderful holiday season and end to 2013.  The month of December was a very hectic time for me – full of change!  To name a few: I moved.  During the first week of December I downsized to a carriage house apartment [...]

In Transition

December 5, 2013

Not only am I in the process of moving, but my new place won’t have a functional kitchen for a couple of weeks.  That being said, I have been living off of Ellwood salads, brown rice wraps with almond butter, Larabars and sushi. For school, I recently had to watch the video below.  Rockstar.  Enough [...]

Thanksgiving in Leftovers

November 29, 2013

I’m a horrible blogger in that I took no pictures during my Thanksgiving dinner.  I had neither my phone nor my camera anywhere near by, as all I wanted to do was sit back and enjoy the time with my family.  Yet a lot of what I ate was made by me, and therefore kept [...]

Kale Sweet Potato & Black Bean Soup 1 small sweet onion, diced 2 red bell peppers, diced 3 stalks [...]

Pumpkin in Sweet & Savory

November 22, 2013

I wish I had one of those blogs with beautiful photography to do the food justice.  Although I have taken a couple of photography classes in the past, I just don’t have the time, space, lighting and energy for that matter to devote to taking amazing food porn pictures.  The new apartment to which I’m [...]

Creamy Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal

November 20, 2013

Good morning! After a long, early morning walk with Charlie in 30 degree temperatures, the only thing I could think of when I returned was a warm bowl of oatmeal.  Normally, I pair my oats with either berries or banana, but since the former is too expensive these days and the latter negatively affects my [...]
