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

As much as I’d like to start this post off with the typical apology for how absent I’ve been as of late, I won’t. I don’t want to lie to you, readers, and I am not sorry! I’ve spent the last couple of weeks busting my butt with school, which is paying off tremendously by … Continue reading

A Long Absence Pt. 3: The First Week

IMG_1518

Here are three things I’ve learned since leaving Florida: 1) Parallel parking is difficult. The Florida driving test doesn’t require it because there isn’t much street parking in the state, but there are almost no parking lots up here! Everyone parks on the sides of the streets.

A few months ago I made Quinoa Stuffed Beefsteak Tomatoes for Nick and I during one of our health kicks. Neither of us had ever eaten the strange grain called quinoa (pronounced keen-wah) before, but we loved it.
