Another Day, Another Mass Shooting

I usually try to keep my blog posts positive and independent of the travesties and tragedies happening in our political, social, judicial systems, and all of our other systems. Today I can't post about sewing projects, the daily post, or plant-based recipes because I can't compartmentalize the terrible situation at Douglas High School yesterday. I... Continue Reading →

That cool girl Jeans Look

So I am not big into denim anymore. I used to be when I worked in a department store, and had an employee discount on all the super-high end brands. I swear the only reason anyone works in retail is because of the discount! These days, I tend to wear mom jeans and Toms shoes instead of... Continue Reading →

We haven't been to the farmer's market in a while--it heads indoors and is only 2 times a month now. But on our last trip, I got some romanesco broccoli. I love the fractal nature of...

80 Healthiest Foods

In the Spring, I bought a special issue of Time magazine entitled the 100 Healthiest Foods. There is more meat than I would consider "healthy," including chicken, pork, turkey, halibut, scallops, cod, oysters, "grass-fed" hamburger and steak; salmon and tuna are on the list, but I would consider letting those slide. Other non-plant or processed... Continue Reading →
