What I’m Reading April 2017

Reading and writing are two of the biggest de-stressors in my life. In fact, the whole reason I started this blog was because I was on a hiatus from novel writing after I decided not to pursue publishing my first book (I was nineteen when I wrote it and it was...lacking.) In spite of the fact that I wasn't writing books for a ...

Feeling Spring In The Air

I'll be honest with you guys. I didn't leave my house much this winter. Besides Moosie's daily walks or work, I was basically homebound. That's probably part of the reason why this winter felt like an eternity. In the summers, I spend most of my time outside. So when winter hits and all of the sudden the pendulum swings the ...

Staying Entertained While Cooking

I spend a lot of time in the kitchen. Not only do I cook there, but I also use the countertop as a standing desk because I'm broke AF. But honestly, even if I wasn't, I would probably still use the kitchen as my base of operations. This would be easier if I didn't have a tiny galley kitchen, but hey, we'll have that mansion ...

Mainly because I couldn't afford to travel as much, but also because I had this crazy notion that ...

A Love Letter To Deviled Eggs

They'd wag their fingers at the irresponsibility of such a statement during the current obesity crisis in our country. How dare I equate food with emotion when society has worked so hard to equate ...

On Savoring The Good Days

Winter is hard. Perhaps this is a blanket statement, all too assuming about how other people feel at this time of year. Some people love winter. The holidays, the snow, the ice skating. It's all so romantic. But for most of us, there hits a point where that magic ends, and it's difficult beyond measure. Waking up early to ...

Cooking From Scratch: Week 5

How, you may ask, does a person go about cooking from scratch after having the nether regions of their mouth pilfered? What does a person who can barely open their jaw enough to suck down their Vicadin consume to stay alive? How does one survive after wisdom tooth surgery removes their precious chompers? I'm sure you've ...
