mini-meal prep

As much as I love reaping the benefits of meal prepping, I don’t always have the time/energy/motivation. But that doesn’t mean I’ll be happy with myself later if I don’t pack any food at all before a 3-day trip. The solution? Mini-meal prepping, where I still consider how I can

weekly veggie boxes

My sweet neighbor upstairs works with a local farm, Kirsop Farms, here in Washington, helping them partner with farmer’s markets around town. Back in May, she told us about weekly vegetable boxes they offer for only $25. Local, organic produce left at my back door like a gift from Santa?

chemex brewed iced coffee

I shared this the other day on my Instagram story, but wanted to post it here too in case you missed it. Bon Appetit’s Sarah Jampel shared her method for iced coffee in a Chemex, so this is my go at it. I can already tell it’s going to be

make-at-home: vinaigrette dressing

Our culture is one of ultimate consumerism, where convenience consistently trumps quality.

travel through the kitchen: italy

Italy is one of my favorite places in the world. After studying the language in Tuscany during college, I fell hard for the people, the landscape, and yes of course, the food. Not that I hadn’t already loved Italian food (like any good American), but my love for the cuisine

Meal prep for flight attendants is more important than ever right now, with food options on layovers and in airports being limited due to COVID-19. I’m on-call for the next 3 days, and woke up to a call from scheduling, telling me I would be gone for all of them.

poor man’s latte

Matt and I love to go to a coffee shop or bakery on the weekends for pastries and lattes. We love the ritual of sipping them together at a coffee bar, comparing whatever we were currently drinking to lattes from different shops. If we ever wanted coffee at home, for

green smoothie

All this extra time at home has given me ample opportunity to let my good eating habits of yesteryear fall by the wayside. I’ve been craving my beloved Arden’s Garden smoothies & juices from Atlanta to help balance me out, but, as I’ve previously lamented, it isn’t available in Seattle.
