Brussels Sprouts

As we find ourselves on the verge of this brand new year, I’ve been reflecting, a lot, on many things: the different jobs/internships I’ve had this year, the dates I’ve gone on, the new friends I’ve made, and of course, the food I’ve eaten. But somewhere between reflecting on what I’ve accomplished this past year … Continue reading

Spaghetti Squash and Cherry Tomatoes

While Caroline has been on an amazing vacation with her family, I have been enjoying a week full of 100 degree temperatures. Seriously Texas, let’s cool down a bit ok?

Farmer’s Markets and Babies

Farmer’s Markets and Babies

How is July already over? This summer has been going by so quickly and I feel like I’ve been spending lots of time in air conditioned buildings (100 degree weather is not my thing). One of the things I do venture outside for is the farmer’s market. It has become one of my Sunday morning … Continue reading

Pomme Frites

This post was inspired by the great city of Washington DC. During my job search, I made a trip to the capitol to go on some informational interviews and spend time with my cousin. We went to¬†Granville Moore’s¬†where they serve frittes, ales, and moules. Since they only have a limited menu to focus on, everything … Continue reading

The Perks of Being Underemployed

Yesterday when I was on the train on the way into work I ran into one of my friends from high school. We hadn’t seen each other much in the last few years and even though everything’s changed…nothing had changed.

I admit I have a slight obsession with french fries but I love potatoes in all of its forms: baked, mashed, roasted etc. Sweet potatoes are even better and better for you. I made these particular sweet potato fries this weekend. I’m trying to get as much baking out of my system before the heat … Continue reading

This point usually comes after you’ve been avoiding looking at your bank account, because you know you’ve been spending a lot of money, but have somehow managed to convince yourself all your money would still magically … Continue reading

Bruschetta

I’ve been known to drop a few platitudes in my day. “Everything happens for a reason,” “Living well is the best revenge,” and ” What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger” were all coined by me. (Just kidding, Kelly Clarkson did the last one.) So let me drop another genius truth on you: “Life is … Continue reading
