lost in reverie

Hello, I haven’t been annoying you all as much.  I apologize for my lackadaisical presence.  A few crazy things have been in the works over the past few weeks and I’m about to share them with you all: I’ve been going through some changes, lately.  They’ve taken hold of my life and center around balancing this thing we … Continue reading

Coconut Mojito Popsicles

The World Cup. I’m super excited about it. World Cup athletes?  I’m even more excited about that. Soccer players equal muscular lean bodies, foreign accents, and rugged handsomeness.  What’s not to like?  And booze.  That’s something I like, too. Alcohol:  It’s been happening a lot around here.  With the backyard bash last week, bonfires, eating … Continue reading

grapefruit cocktails

Grapefruit Cocktails

Grapefruit.  It’s never been my thing. When I was young I would watch my mom eat grapefruits all the time.  Whenever she offered me a bite, I’d hesitantly say yes even though I knew exactly what my reaction would be. Grapefruit.  It was a grown up thing.  Totally ick. Fast forward to now…  I can’t get … Continue reading



this weekend I was able to visit one of my closest friends in jacksonville, florida.  i met JP during my senior year of high school at a gathering of recently-accepted Elon University students.  when i first met her, i thought she was nice, albeit sorta quiet, pretty innocent and frankly a little weird. we ended … Continue reading

Fried Cauliflower Rice

I get it. My sense of humor is an acquired taste.  I’m sorry if sarcasm is a foreign language to you, but it’s my default status and it takes a lot to get me excited about something. But right now, I’m not being sarcastic and I’m actually super excited.  This is better than rice.  Totally … Continue reading

Whole Grain Buttermilk Waffles with Cocoa Nibs & Sunflower Seeds

Failure. I do it all the time.  It’s quite true.  I set expectations for myself but the noise of others’ opinions and my own fears and insecurities drown out my own inner voice, and I constantly fall short.  Failure is hard work, but it’s part of life and I’m learning it’s a sign of experience. … Continue reading

Spicy Roasted Red Pepper & Cheddar Skillet Scones

Nine-to-five. The nine-to-five life isn’t for everyone and I’m beginning to question if it’s the life for me.  It has meant a lot of change in my day-to-day interests.  For example, wearing a bathrobe outside of the house is no longer acceptable. I’ve started doing things, you see…  Things I never thought I’d do.  I feel … Continue reading


News Weekly

News weekly 1.  Decisions, decisions.  I make them all the time, especially when it comes to cooking.  Olive oil or canola?  Chocolate or lemon?  Healthy or cheesy?  Both, maybe? Ukraine.  Let’s talk. I feel a bit like Ukraine.  Not like “Oh, part of me wants to be Russian and the other part wants to remain … Continue reading
