YOU GUYS! If there is one thing I will absolutely miss about Bali (um, let’s be real there will be MANY things) when/if I eventually leave, it’s the TEMPEH! It’s a huge part of the local diet here, and ridiculously affordable — and delicious! One of my favorite ways to get it is cut into…

Would you believe me if I told you I’ve been wearing my (one and only) sweater here in Bali A LOT!? I really have. It’s been dipping below 80F and that means I’M CHILLY! I think that also means I’m completely ruined for winter in the USA… I look at snow as a novelty these…

My newfound obsession with Indian food is NO JOKE. Literally every day, as I ponder what I’ll eat for lunch or dinner, my stomach SCREAMS at me: “INDIAN FOOD INDIAN FOOD INDIAN FOOD” over and over and over again. I can almost smell the butter chicken as that voice gets louder in my head! I’ve…

PHULKA! Have you hear of it? It’s my new fave Indian vehicle for butter chicken. YU-UM. Should we tell naan it’s been replaced? Naaaah(n). As you can see, I have little of substance for you today in the word department. Who makes those kinds of jokes? ME. I make those kinds of jokes. Not at…

TOAST! Toast + poached eggs + flavorful toppings = my dream come true. I’m so excited toast has become a trend in the last few years (also, is that not semi-ridiculous? it is. it totally is.) because NOW I CAN JUST EAT MORE OF IT! If you follow me on Instagram you may have noticed…

Cinnamon Peanut Butter Maca Power Balls

Cinnamon Peanut Butter Maca Power Balls | thekitchenpaper.com

I MADE COOKIES!! Kind of. These are like “I want to be cookies when I grow up” or “I’m the healthy alternative to your cookie” or “I’m simply a substitution since my creator (ha!) doesn’t have an oven.” Take your pick. I’m going with #2, personally. Healthier cookie balls that are full of energy and…

As much as I love eating vegetables and healthy stuff, it’s much more common for me to really want something comforting — bean & cheese quesadilla, mashed potatoes, burgers, and pasta. Mashed potatoes and burgers usually require too much effort (especially when I’m like I NEED COMFORT FOOD…

Hi friends! Let’s play a game! It’s called “help Mary feel like she’s in the land of Christmas.” I’m imagining myself in your place at home, probably surrounded by warm eggnog and plates of Christmas cookies. That sounds really awesome right now. I’d probably have slippers on, and the fire going, and perhaps even a…
