An Office/Kitchen Storage Before and After


This is a little tale about a reorganization we did at the beginning of September. You know that first week of September when everything needs to be in its place? I only wish it lasted all year long. Our office had been a disaster zone for months and the current black buffet table wasn’t helping […]


The Weekend Snapshots : Food, Food, Randomness, and more Food


You know a weekend was fun when you wake up on Monday morning feeling like you need to sleep for 53 hours. (That’s also the sign of a good vacation!) It’s the classic weekend hangover and it often lingers well into Tuesday. My solution is to relive random phone photos, creep other people’s weekend on […]


Rooms & Random Ramblings


Sadly, the super tidy “after” living and dining room didn’t last very long! Real life happened. Or should I say I happened. I always have good intentions when it comes to cleaning up clutter, but often, more important things just get in the way. I’m trying to start a daily habit to tidy up clutter […]


A Few Screws Loose


Good morning! My morning started off a bit sluggish, but it was nothing a Green Monster couldn’t handle. In the GM: 2 handfuls spinach, 1 cup almond milk, 1 scoop Vega choc-o-lot, 1 tbsp chia seeds, 1 frozen banana, 1/4 cup oats. After breakfast and a bit of digesting, Eric and I headed out for […]


Lessons from a New Gardener


My green thumb came only as a result of the mistakes I made while learning to see things from the plant’s point of view.  ~ H. Fred Ale Since I started my garden the third week of May, I was sure that everything would die. Every flower or plant that I’ve tried to grow in […]


Blame It On The Rain


There’ s no better way to start a summer day… Man oh man was this morning’s Green Monster good! Guess where this kale came from?   Just my veggie garden, that’s all. No big deal. ;) I’ve clearly advanced from a Black Thumb to a Brown Thumb. Milli Vanilli Green Monster Ingredients: ~ 1 cup […]


Happy Heart, Happy Belly


Sunday was a great day. Well, aside from finding out that my ‘vertically growing spinach’ had gone to seed and BOLTED! Nooooooo. After reading up on it, I guess it is quite common. I had no idea this was a risk-factor for spinach! Gardening is a practice of trial and error I guess. There was […]


From Dirt To Cake


Yesterday, the rain actually held off for most of the day which was nice. We got a lot of gardening done and hit up the nursery for some flowers. I bought some Impatiens, Geraniums, and Bellflowers to plant in the front garden. Before this, mom and I did a lot of weeding and prepped the […]


Blueberry Banana Pie Vegan Overnight Oats


There’s nothing more entertaining than a grown man wearing a pair of Crocs, a coordinating Mastercraft tool belt, while using power tools. He’s a keeper, for sure. :) heh We’ve been plugging away at the deck each night this week. By the time I pick up Eric from the train station and we have dinner […]


Vegetable and Edamame Pasta with Basil Cream Sauce


Yesterday morning, I spotted a pack of squirrels throwing a Sunday brunch around my compost bin. The nerve! One of the squirrels was eating an apple core and another was feasting on a piece of burnt toast! Those crazy little buggers. It appears that the animals in our backyard do not want my compost waste […]
