Only one day left on the trail! We’ve been hiking for five days now, and finish on the West coast of England tomorrow, after hiking through sheep field after sheep field and cow pasture after cow pasture and going through kissing gate after kissing gate — I feel like I have a pretty solid grasp…

Oh haaay! I come to you from the middle-of-nowhere Northern England after many, MANY miles of hiking through sheep. And more sheep. And more sheep. And some cows. And more sheep.

Smoked Salmon Blueberry Crostini

Adios, Portland! I’ll see you in a month! Today, after struggling to pack for legitimately cold weather (the high in Iceland yesterday was 46. OMG.), I’m off! But first, a ridiculously hot destination: Denver. It’s supposed to be 97 degrees today and I am definitely loaded with sweaters and leggings and NOT summer clothing. So,…

Brown Butter Rhubarb Muffins

Oy. Are we ready for a Wednesday brain dump? I HOPE SO because here’s one coming your way. This week is a battle of the conflicted emotions. Not necessarily in a bad way, and certainly not in a dramatic way, but just in a “I need to figure this stuff out” kind of way. Mostly this…

Apple Peanut Butter Smoothie

MOOTHIE MONDAY! It’s back! At least for today. Yaaay! This smoothie is one of those “omg I’m out of smoothie stuff WHAT DO I DO!?!?!” kinds of smoothies. I say that because I always have peanut butter, apples, and bananas on hand and I’m assuming I’m not the only one. I usually throw in some…

Orange Carrot Cake Bars

Guys. I’m gonna let these bars do most of the talking today — I’m short on words and these bars are NOT short on awesome. So much orange zest! Tangy cream cheese frosting! Crunchy pecans! I’m calling these carrot cake BARS because they’re more dense than a normal carrot cake. Just how I like my…

Kale Chorizo Potato Quiche

Believe it or not, this is the first quiche I have EVERRRR MADE! Say whaaaat!? Yeah. For reals. Quiche wasn’t really on my radar for a long time — I don’t remember my Mom ever making it when I was a kid. We usually went for crustless options like stratas and frittatas. Sing those two…

Classic Spaghetti and Meatballs

Buckle your seat belts, kids: we’re taking this post alllll over the place. Mostly: I’m gonna tie a real-life experience to horror movies to blood spatter to MEATBALLS. Stay with me.

Asian Kale Edamame Salad

When I moved into my apartment last month (it’s been an entire month!! Oh my lord. No more excuses for not hanging my art…) I was worried it might be noisy. I’m in the corner unit, so I really only share 1 bedroom wall and 1 kitchen wall with two separate neighbors, but then I…

20 Minute Chicken Fajita Polenta Bowls

I’ve officially been car-free for 2.5 weeks now! That’s three full work-weeks, for me! While I’d like to claim it’s been 100% successful and awesome, I have to admit that it’s only been 99% successful and 99% awesome. There have been some … incidents. OK nothing serious, BUT: thank goodness I haven’t been late to…
