I always keep a small bag of almonds in my purse/bag for those times when I need a snack. They especially came in handy during SXSW. Just picture me standing in a bar, sipping water and snacking on my almonds and the occasional fruit snack. I totally fit in. Anyways, I usually just eat raw almonds but … Continue reading

There’s a belief that if you say something out loud and put it “into the universe” it has to come true. Or at least partially come true, eventually. So, of course, I’ve been doing this. Sometimes when I’m home alone, or I’m walking down a semi-empty street, I’ll whisper something very quietly, just so that … Continue reading

Oven-Baked Risotto

Oven-Baked Risotto

I’m all about making things simple when it comes to cooking. Traditionally, risotto is not a simple dish. Cooking risotto involves stirring (note: constantly stirring) hot stock into the uncooked rice a ladleful at a time and cooking slowly as the stock is absorbed. So naturally it is not a dish made for the busy … Continue reading

Greetings! As a recent college graduate, now part-time employee/intern/consultant/retailer, I have gone through many jobs over the last eighteen months. In fact, at this point I’ve probably held almost as many jobs as I’ve baked desserts…. Okay, not quite, but I’m still really excited to be guest-blogging for Latte Issues! I’m Danielle, by the way. … Continue reading

So from the texts, photos, and Instagram updates I’ve been getting from Taylor, it looks like she’s in full swing at SXSW, which means this week I am officially in charge of the blog. Muahahahaha! Usually when I’m left unsupervised I will watch cat videos until my eyes bleed, but I’m going to take this … Continue reading

Updates!

Updates!

For the next 10 days I will be taking a little vacation from Latte Issues because of a lovely little thing called SXSW. I wish I could say I was going for fun but it will be all work related. Part of my job includes going to live shows/interacting with artists and I am getting paid … Continue reading
