Is my age showing? I constantly feel like I discover new things that make me feel old (for the record, 26). Waking up today after going to a concert last night and not getting home until 2 am? Old. So old. Not because I slept in until noon (because isn’t that such a 17 year old thing to do?) but because I feel SO bad about sleeping in until noon. And my feet hurt from standing in one place for hours. Ironically, seeing the band that’s been my favorite since high school made me feel so incredibly young last night. Like I’m gonna stay 18 forever. My friends know that I swear by a glass of chocolate milk the morning after a rough night, but I wanted something more refreshing...

Summer seems to just be slipping away — I feel like it used to last forever when I was younger, and now I’m lucky to have maybe 2 of my favorite summer outings a year. Let’s not even talk about all of the adventures I’ve never even had yet (tubing lazily down a river? Yup, have the tubes in my garage but have never made it to a river!). I was having friends over for a wine tasting over the weekend and wanted to feature foods that were a little more picnic-y because oh hey, picnics are another thing I just never manage to have time for. I’ve seen many a blog/instagram post featuring whipped feta on crostini with some kind of drizzle and some kind of fruit, but that...

First, I took an embarrassing amount of time to get this post up.  While I was in Seattle (yes, that was in April) I took a tour of the Field Roast factory and I have to say it was a lot of fun. The pictures aren’t going to show just how cool it was, because they don’t allow photos of the actual manufacturing process. Takes all the good photos out of a factory tour, right? But at the very least we got to see how (vegan) sausage is made, even if we can’t show you, too. Tours are not something they regularly do, so we were extra appreciative of our tour guide Kiley who took time out of her day. When we walked in, this is the first thing we...


I’ve had the strongest craving for zucchini lately – I’ve fried it, thrown it in soup, sauteed it, just can’t get enough of it. I couldn’t find any at the grocery store on my last trip, so I was beyond stoked when we popped into a bulk store and I get 4 HUGE ones for $2. I obviously bought way too many, and then had to quickly prep and eat them all. Quick sweet breads are my favorite way to use up produce. And I knowwww that I have like 8,000 sweet bread recipes already, to the point where half the internet probably thinks I only eat sugary bread. #InMyDreams <— ugh, why would I hashtag in the middle of the post? Josh tried to buy a shirt at Banana...

Hope everyone had a long, fantastic weekend. Mine was a little bit of a mixed bag — lots of fun, but I broke my freaking YOGA 3. I’ve never before cracked a screen on any electronic device (knock on wood that I don’t break anything else now!!), including when I accidentally threw my old Dell (what I’m currently on) across the room and hit our coat rack treadmill. How’d I do it? It fell, closed a whopping 5 inches to the floor. And we’re not talking a little baby crack, the screen totally shattered. All because I wanted to watch Pretty Little Liars in the bathtub. Have you seen that show? I know in my heart that I’m a 26 year old woman and I should probably just say “No...


I probably say a lot of sandwiches are my favorite, but if we get rid of the basics (PBJs and grilled cheeses) then I can pretty confidently say that a Reuben is my most requested, most ordered sandwich. I always forgo the meat and occasionally swap in sauteed mushrooms and peppers or even just slices of tomato. Josh, on the other hand, is not really into sauerkraut and will kick and scream over eating a Reuben until he’s actually eating it — at which point, he remembers that sauerkraut + thousand island dressing = pure bliss. In a random twist the other day, I was craving some kind of smoky meatiness on my Reuben, which is very strange because I’ve never actually had a Reuben with meat on it over...
