Indian Grocery Store Haul and September Intentions


This year has absolutely been insane.

Things have happened this year that I never thought would. Good, the bad, the wonderful.  Now it’s September and we’ve completed 8 months out our 12 and it just feels crazy! It has all gone by so fast.

The last month has been interesting because it recently dawned on me – I work too damn much.  Continue reading

Recent Thoughts and Tiny Food Haul

Let’s all aspire to be as excited about life as my Maxie!

Hello there, friends!

I have a small confession – I’m not the best.

Too often, I am angry, bitter, regretful, and full of spite and pettiness. I am ungrateful and unkind. However, in the small moments that I am afforded an easy and slow breath and silence is unusually abundant – I remember that the life I live is an utter gift.  Beyond all the bills I have to pay, my hectic schedule, my job that feels less like a life path than I would like and the slow come-up that my blog is creeping on – I have so much to be thankful for. I look at the faces I’m surrounded with and find myself wealthy in love. There is such compassion and connection in my world. Other people can’t say they’re nearly as lucky. Continue reading

Figgy Streusel Breakfast Cornbread


Yes. I know. I JUST made some corn-based baked goods the other week.

What can I say – I’m obsessed! Also, breakfast foods are everything to me. I’m one of those people who can spend an entire grocery budget on just breakfast foods and never realize it until I try and make dinner the next day.

But. For real, though – this cornbread is NEXT LEVEL. Throw out that Jiffy pre-mixed stuff (not hating because I lived on that stuff at one point) and check this recipe out. Continue reading

Speedy Weeknight Nori Rolls


Hello beautiful world!

Do you guys love sushi? I’m sure you do. I’m basically obsessed with it. I’ve always loved nori too – the dried seaweed sheets that are used to make the sushi rolls. It’s pretty common in Asian households to have dried seaweed as a part of your snack time. I had it a lot when I was younger. My father also loved putting it in miso soup and on special occasions he would make sushi for all of us. Continue reading

Daily Gluttony


Literally every vegetable under the sun. Roasted broccoli, pinto beans, brown rice, avocados, salsa, roasted potatoes, carrots, sauteed spinach and mushrooms, bbq sauce and hot sauce drizzled on top with some dairy-free cheese shreds. I ate ALL of that in one sitting. Yessss.

I’ve always been an avid food blog reader. I have also always wondered, “do these people actually eat this stuff on the reg?

Since I’ve started this blog, I’ve had a few people ask if I actually eat all of the food I make or if it goes to waste.

Well, the truth finally comes out. Continue reading
