I have the week off of work so I will have time to dedicate some new recipes for my sweet little corner of the internet. They will mostly be plant based but the following week I will start including work meals into the mix. Feel free to leave requests or have a favorite dish you would like a healthier version of. I love those kind of challenges. When we know better we can do better. Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! 💗
Recently I helped my friend move into her new apartment. I think I read once that moving is one of the most stressful events that can happen to someone. I should know, I’ve moved 12 times since I was 18. … Continue reading →
Baking is not my forte. It never felt like there was room for innovation unless you are advanced. I never cared to be advanced because baking can get so unhealthy, and let’s be real- if it’s a bad day you … Continue reading →
This afternoon I was doing my hair when I saw one of my best friends was calling. I debated letting it go to voicemail and calling her back later. You know, since I couldn’t blow dry my hair and talk … Continue reading →
I’ve always had a weird relationship with soups. How much oil is in you? Salt? Dairy? I do like them, but I am too suspicious of them to order them out. Rarely if ever, were attempts made to make them myself … Continue reading →
I hate the title, it sounds so elitist and weird. Like someone who just left soul cycle decked out in lulu lemon and is headed to brunch for bottomless mimosas. “Um, I only consume cacao, cocoa is so 2015.” (We … Continue reading →
I love living in San Francisco, I really do. It’s like living in a postcard. However, it’s freezing a lot of the time. (I will always be an LA lady at heart, and that includes so much sunshine.) My diet … Continue reading →
Hello old friends!! I’m not entirely sure where to start considering I abandoned this blog years ago. I should have brought it back last April when I moved to San Francisco with Ellie and started cooking for work. In my defense I was in a new city seeing new things, trying new things, feeling new things. I’m lazy and full of excuses.
But some stuff has remained the same! I am still a health nut obsessed with dogs and cooking. I still dislike mayonnaise, jumping jacks (ah the aftershocks), and cloudy days. Some things you can always count on. Those are a few of them.
I’m not really sure what the future of this blog holds, and I will do my best to keep adding content. I haven’t decided if I will only add recipes I personally eat (gluten free, dairy free, meatless) or if I will include some of the “normal” meals I make for the family I work for. (Such awesome people!) My plan is to let it develop organically.
Last night I reread all my old posts and aw, the musings of a 22 year old. I laughed at all my own jokes, cringed at some of the recipes (hi kimchi tacos), but I am going to keep some of them. I started from a minimal perspective and maybe that simplicity could help the beginners here. But I assure you I have grown personally and professionally.
Also thank you to the random Italian guy who emailed me recently about polenta. I read the email half asleep and was shocked that this website was still up. It’s funny how the universe is always sending us signs.
I’m addicted to mint. I can’t help it. I don’t want to help it. It all started at my family’s annual decathlon which coincided with Derby Day, in which my mother decided to pay homage to with Mint Juleps. (Barf) … Continue reading →
Aka the breakfast of my childhood. If you are british, or have a british parent like I do, you know what I am talking about. Breakfast is all about the eggs and toast soldiers. Obviously I have omitted the rasher … Continue reading →
