Our Second Date

Yup, the boy and I had another date! This one didn’t involve a meal, unlike our first date. SSH usually works all day. (It’s a summer job. More about that later.) But he took off a few hours (just for me!!), and we went down to the beach. Don’t worry, y’all: as romantic as it […]

Speaking of guys…

There’s another guy in my life, and his name is: Dad! Because our family was apart for my dad’s birthday in June, we waited to have a big celebration. Said celebration finally took place yesterday. And it began with a stack of vegan German Chocolate Pancakes. (The above photo is from last year’s Father’s Day […]

Smashing Chickpeas (serves 1-2) This recipe is one of my go-to ideas for when I don’t have much time to cook. 1 cup canned chickpeas a little under 1 cup spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce (about 200g) salt, if desied Combine and smash with a fork. Looks weird, tastes terrific!

About the Boy

The other day, I walked into a local sporting-good store, intent on scouting out the Nike running gear. But when I chanced upon the clerk in the shoe department, said running-gear-scouting was forgotten. We talked for over an hour—first about running (which, it turns out, we both love), and then about basically every other topic under the […]

Chocolate Cookie Dough Product Review

The other day, when I spotted the new Larabar flavors at the store—chocolate chip cookie dough, chocolate chip brownie, carrot cake, and peanut butter chocolate chip—my hand involuntarily reached out to snatch them. (Well, I only got these two, so I did manage to not buy all the newest Larabar flavors.) I love to make […]
