Yummy Mistakes

Every once in a while, mid-task, an idea will pop into my head along the lines of “ooo what if I do it THIS way instead”. Such an idea took place on Sunday night, on a hot griddle, while preparing protein pancakes for the week. What if I just made a big-ass pancake all at…

A Little-Big Breakfast

There’s just something about food that makes me feel…magic. Sure, the human body is programmed to react in certain ways to certain things so that we can sustain ourselves etc……but there’s something different there for me. The way things are put on the plate, the shape things end up being by the time they make…

La Croix

Reliable. That’s what I’ve come to know it as. It started with a text, I suppose, the day I wrote a piece about moving on from soda and trying to cut back on Monster. A few hours after it published I saw, while scrolling through Facebook, that yet another of my friends was going to…

Adventures in Macarons

I love baking during the holidays. It’s just one of my things. Chocolate chip cookies are my go to but I can never turn down a good Pumpkin Pie, my Mom’s “World Famous” Brownies, or my Dad’s Icebox Cake. But this year I’m hit pretty hard by the “Baking Bug” so I decided to try…

1 A.M. Cookies

If there is one thing I “resolve” to do more of this year, it’s working with my hands. It’s how I grew up, spending most of my young life up until Junior Year of High School without a cell phone and with very little TV or Internet exposure throughout the day.  Over the years all…

The F. Dick

The cornerstone of your kitchen is how you work. Your process is key to how you use the space available, how you have everything set up. Key to how you set up is what tools you use. Aside from the stove/oven, perhaps no tool is more important than your knife. And I do mean “knife”…
