Do you ever find yourself zombieously wandering around your kitchen, scanning the pantry inventory for dinner: wild rice, lentils, oats, cob webs. WAIT, oh ew. And then you drag yourself out to the garden, squinting into the blinding sun to check out what’s left of the season: kale, some herbs, a few tomatoes, weeds. WAIT, […]

Soy Chorizo and Two-Bean Chili

Print Friendly

You’re probably reading the title of this post, rubbing your eyes, re-reading it and thinking, “The girl’s gawn coo-coo. Who eats chili IN AUGUST?” Well hold on now! I need to explain something. For the most part of yesterday, it felt like fall. Delicious, crisp, I-can-go-outside-and-not-die-from-the-heat fall. The temperatures stayed right around 66, steady rain […]

Obsession

Print Friendly

I have a problem. A teensy, tiny, itty-bitty problem. I’m obsessed with glasses. Glasses and vases. Lovely, thrifted, vintage glasses and vases. It’s a little frightening to tell you the truth. Once I find myself in a thrift store, it happens. Like, out of nowhere. My eyes glaze over, I foam at the mouth, and […]

Chicken. It’s a win-win. No matter what you do with it, you’re sure to wear giddy pants while eating it. Grilled, seared, stuffed, shredded, poached, baked; honestly, the world is your oyster. I mean chicken. The chicken is your oyster. I mean, the world is your chicken. Wait, the chicken is your chicken! . . […]
