I feel like spring was very well timed this year.
From the day I landed in DC for spring break, the temperatures rocketed from freezing to mid-70s. The only problem? I’ve gotten comfortably used to the warmth….
You know it’s midterms week when you let a post publish without writing, well, anything.
For those of you reading these words, this won’t make much sense, but earlier today, I woke up to realize that this post had been published, but only the pictures and recipe!…
There are two types of sick.
There’s the omg-I-literally-cannot-move-and-liquids-are-coming-from-everywhere-help kind, and then there’s the ugh-I-have-the-sniffles-and-my-head hurts type….
This smoothie might be the easiest recipe I’ve ever posted, and there have been many.
This smoothie is a no excuses kind of smoothie. If your resolution was to eat more fruit, get more calcium, or boost your metabolism in the morning, this smoothie is totally your answer.
You know that college student trope of living off ramen? Yeah, I never really got that.
No, no, it’s not like I’m saying I’m the health queen at school (I think the lady at the late night falafel truck definitely knows me by face…), but noodles and noodle soup are definitely something that I like to make myself.
My first memory of Japanese food involves udon.
My dad used to take me to an Asian market/restaurant by our house that was surprisingly authentic. We would split a vegetable croquette (Think potatoes and vegetables, deep fried. I know) and each get a noodle dish. He would always get soba noodle soup (buckwheat noodles), and for some reason, I’d get zaru udon….
Peaches are kind of the ultimate summer fruit. (Sorry mango, you win almost every other time, but let peaches have this one)
So it’s kind of a shock to me that I have only one other peach recipe on this blog! Clearly I’m just an ‘eat them fresh’ kind of person. However, when I do bake my peaches, I love them with a little pastry….
Oh, kitchen fails. When your counter has been floured, wiped down, and floured again and you are slowly depleting your brown sugar supply with nothing to show for it.
Sometimes, (especially when it comes to vegan baking) things (yes I’m talking about you, crumbly linzer cookies!) don’t work out. So I like to beat the complicated-baking-frustration with simple but delicious foods….
There are a lot of fancy-schmancy desserts I want to try, but I’m a little intimidated by.
Macarons, for one. Homemade puff pastry. Croissants. Donuts….
I’m calling it right now, this is the prettiest salad you’ll ever eat.
Raw beets just do the most gorgeous things when it comes to color, am I right?…
