Everything’s (Not) Happening

Hi everybody. Wow. It’s been a minute. Well, it’s been a few months but it might as well have been a few decades. Every day is a long time lately. My job wrapped up right before Thanksgiving, and Sam and I decided to take a quick post-turkey trip to Maui. Right before we left, Sam Adams took a real turn in the kidney department. On … Continue reading Everything’s (Not) Happening

I Went Blond, Among Other Things

And yes, I chose to spell it “blond” over “blonde.” Anyway, yeah, hi, it’s been over a year since I last posted. I assure you I have been writing, just not here. Would you like to know what I’ve been up to? In no particular order — -As mentioned above, I went blond. I was reluctant to do it, because being brunette felt like an … Continue reading I Went Blond, Among Other Things

Paris, J’Barfed [Travel Recap]

I was going to call this post something like “C’est La Vie, Paris,” but let’s be honest, “J’Barfed” is a hilarious turn of phrase. I really did barf — multiple times — on our second-to-last night. But no hard feelings, Paris. So it took me a few weeks to hit the blog with news of our trip, because I was still processing and feeling unwell. … Continue reading Paris, J’Barfed [Travel Recap]

A Pop of Color (For the End of the Year*)

One last thing I wanted to say in 2016 is that this was a momentous year in one respect — I figured out my new power color! For many years it was probably purple, maybe blue… there was some waffling. But this year I realized that in this phase of my life, it’s definitely teal… or aqua? Or whatever you call it. I didn’t realize … Continue reading A Pop of Color (For the End of the Year*)

Remembering 2015

You guys! I kind of forgot to blog for, like… over a year. Okay, I didn’t forget. I’ve just been Instagramming, because Instagram is like tiny little photo-blogs throughout the day. If you’re me. On the vegan-ness front, this is what happened, in case you’re curious (and even if you weren’t): I went to a nutritionist and we agreed I’d eat less salt and sugar … Continue reading Remembering 2015

Happy Birthday to Me

It’s my birthday! Which, for me, signals a time of great eatin’s (and reflection). It has been a quick year, filled with various food adventures and calamities. I found out I was (sorta) lactose intolerant, I was told to stop eating red meat (among other things) for my cholesterol, I fell out of shape, I tried to get back into shape, I cooked spaetzle, I … Continue reading Happy Birthday to Me

Do It Yourself: Spice Cake (BETTY CROCKER)

You guys– I am SO BEHIND on blogging so much stuff. Cakes. Puddings. Cheeses. Food trucks. Home-cooked dinners. One of the things that deters me from blogging is the time that it takes to add “www.thedailybinge.com” to all the pictures. So guess what? I’m going to stop doing that. I have mixed feelings about throwing the pictures up naked, but whatever keeps the posts coming. … Continue reading Do It Yourself: Spice Cake (BETTY CROCKER)

Snack Trek: TASTE OF THE EASTSIDE

Okay, I’m obviously a little bit behind here. Taste of the Eastside was on May 15th. Back when I was in a nail-polishing phase (they come and go as they please). Sometimes I take a long time to blog things. Sometimes I NEVER GET AROUND to blogging things. It’s part of the delicious suspense of being a reader. (You can always refer to my Flickr … Continue reading Snack Trek: TASTE OF THE EASTSIDE
