Things I Did Whilst Unemployed…

Happy autumn! Arguably my favorite time of year. (Like, I have to argue with myself about it? I don’t like to play favorites!) Since it’s now just past my 6 month vegan-versary, you’re probably wondering what I’ve been up to for the last couple of months. (Or you’re not… that’s valid.) I’ll tell you what I wasn’t doing: going to work. My last job ended in … Continue reading Things I Did Whilst Unemployed…

So This is the New Year…

A little Death Cab reference there… college flashback #1 of this post. I was going to take a picture of an apple and honey in the office kitchen, but upon inspection I could not find a honey bear… just three jars of organic agave sweetener. A very Los Angeles Rosh Hashanah, indeed. (You don’t even want to know what I found in the apple bin… … Continue reading So This is the New Year…

Do It Yourself: Blackberry Summer Pudding

You guys– I have to admit, I’m addicted to NPR. I guess that’s what reaching my mid-20s is all about. Less driving around listening to Britney Spears, more driving around listening to world news and This American Life. One of my favorite shows is The Splendid Table, hosted by Lynne Rossetto Kasper.

Do It Yourself: Foolproof Turkey Meatballs

Happy April Fools’ Day, everybody! This is not one of my favorite holidays, because… let’s face it, nobody likes to get fooled. (I don’t get fooled so much as I hate calling bullshit on people, because I try to be tactful.) (Unless we’re good friends. Then I’m calling your bullshit all over the place.) Don’t get me wrong. Obvious April Fools jokes are funny. Like, … Continue reading Do It Yourself: Foolproof Turkey Meatballs

Snack Trek: In-N-Out Burger’s “Super Secret” Menu

Like most Californians, I’m familiar with In-N-Out’s most popular “secret” (or– as they put it– not-so-secret) menu items. I typically order my hamburger “protein style” (wrapped in lettuce), and Cole orders his shakes Neopolitan style (chocolate, vanilla & strawberry combined) so often that I didn’t even realize it was a “secret” item. So I thought I knew it all. Then Serious Eats posted its “Ultimate … Continue reading Snack Trek: In-N-Out Burger’s “Super Secret” Menu

I Made It!

Surprise! I’m in Philly, AND I can write posts from my phone. But I don’t know how to do pictures. Picture-free post. I’m still on the plane. Apparently this was the only Southwest flight from Chicago to Philly that got through today? Or so I was told as I boarded. I’m exhausted, excited, incredulous… am I sitting on a plane, or a rollercoaster of emotions?? … Continue reading I Made It!
