Last week, I mentioned to Ben: “Remember what we were doing this time last year?” He paused. Then, “Whoa.”
This time last year, Ben was still working at a real awful little company that had sent him on a seemingly never-ending business trip to Oceanside, on which
So. We planted kale. Just some little innocent kale seeds from a little innocent kale seed packet; thoughtlessly, naively. Kale. It just sounds so healthy. Like, you know, a super food. Like acai (how the eff do you pronounce that word) and salmon (secretly I hate salmon, shut up). We’ll plant kale! And shove big handfuls [...]
Beets. They’re kind of my thing these days. Well, not just these days – for a lot of days lately. We planted a bunch in our community garden last year, which was probably the first time I had ever eaten them; definitely the first time I had ever cooked them [...]
Oatmeal. Oh, oatmeal, my long-lost friend! A warm comfort on foggy winter mornings. An oft-touted “hearty” and “nutritious” breakfast meal, despite your insanely high carbohydrate load and literal spoonfuls of sugar. Oatmeal. Just… sigh.
As an advocate of real, natural food, I try to err on the side of eating breakfasts laden with [...]

bananas - for quick snacking, these [...]
So we’ve got this old DSLR that we bought on Craigslist to make a photobooth for our wedding. This past week I dusted it off, charged up the batteries, and started to play. I’m really not much of a photographer – and I’ve honestly got very little interest in trying to become a good one [...]
Anyone who wants to try a recipe found on this blog should only be allowed to do so after first being given access to this small but important disclaimer.
I am horrible at recipes.
The knob on my oven is very, very off. I’m guessing it’s about 100 degrees [...]
This was a quick and fancy dinner we enjoyed last night. I think it was only about 30 minutes from the fridge opening til plates were on the table, and it still felt classy and was full of micronutrients + vitamins + healthhealthhealth. The halibut had a sweet shiny glaze (+ it’s paleo!), and the [...]
