Goodbye, 2016!

sparkling trails of light drawing out the numbers 2017 in glowing light to welcome in the new year

Yesterday I spent almost an hour writing a really long, heartfelt post about my 2016, believing that being positive in the face of all the negativity of the year would start 2017 off on the “right foot”. After typing paragraphs of what I’m grateful for and have accomplished this last year and then scouring every … Continue reading

Recipe: Chickpea Salad Sandwiches

Processed with VSCOcam with m3 preset

Many, many months ago when Sinéad visited me, we had lunch at a vegan restaurant where she ordered a chickpea salad sandwich. I love chickpeas in every form that’s ever entered my mouth, so I was immediately intrigued (but not as intrigued as I was by the “All-American vegan burger” I ordered that really did taste like … Continue reading

First, I need to let you know that my inaccurate cutting led to these being more rectangular than the title of this recipe would lead you to believe, but we’re going to pretend that isn’t the case – may the odds of even cutting be ever in your favor!

Recipe: Butternut Spice Bisque

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

My lovely friend Natalie sent me this fantastic recipe by Martha Stewart for Butternut Squash Bisque that set my heart ablaze with desire for this soup.

I love goals and lists and am too ambitious for my own good, it’s true! Every December I make a list of goals for myself for the new year, and every year they’re forgotten by March! To break the cycle, I’ve decided to start my “new year” immediately following my birthday — I personally think … Continue reading

Last Tuesday was my younger brother’s 15th birthday! It’s crazy that he’s already so far into being a teenager — I still remember him being in diapers and dancing around our house to Blue’s Clues whilst talking to our picture frames. (It was cute, even if it sounds kind of creepy, I swear!) Our mom … Continue reading
