Looseleaf Iced Tea with Berry Lime and Pineapple Orange Simple Syrup

Looseleaf Iced Tea with Berry Lime and Pineapple Orange Simple Syrup

The heat wave has arrived. It’s going to be 107 soon, and our pool area burned to the ground about a week ago. My husband and I were lounging in bed when we heard the screaming. He was watching the History channel, and I was […]

Instant Pot Lemon Poppyseed Bread (Paleo, GF)

Instant Pot Lemon Poppyseed Bread (Paleo, GF)

My life as an escapist – I’ve moved six times in the last few years, all throughout California. I’ve moved so many times that I don’t remember the comfort of being in the same place for any length of time – having a well-worn route to […]

Instant Pot Creamy Mac and Cheese

Instant Pot Creamy Mac and Cheese

Look, I know I’m usually all about healthy recipes with lots of veggies, but sometimes you just need comfort food. And when you want mac and cheese, you want something fast and easy that (hopefully) doesn’t come out of a blue box. (: This recipe […]

Cheese Tray with Blood Orange Mimosas

Our internet and cable have been out all day, so I’ve been running around town with husband getting some fun new groceries, and sitting outside on my patio in the sunshine catching up on phone calls. NO TIME TO BLOG? The horror. I’m using this tray […]

Vegan Almond Chocolate Fudge

Vegan Almond Chocolate Fudge

The other night, husband and I went for a drive around our new town, looking for a non-chain coffee shop. Personally, I would have just Googled it or looked on Yelp, but he likes to discover things organically, which is always fun (if I’m forced […]

Rainbow Fried Rice

Rainbow Fried Rice

Things I learned yesterday: people love talking about self-care and they love seeing ugly and embarrassing photos of other people. Tazo chai concentrate actually isn’t that good and I need to learn how to make my own. There are little microanimals called tardigrades or water bears that are super […]

My Go-To Anti-Inflammatory Green Juice

Hey everyone! It’s Sunday. What are you up to today? Do you ever have those nights where you go to bed at a decent time, but you’re completely awake for a few hours, just tossing and turning? That has been me the last few nights, […]
