Green Enchilada Sauce

Green Enchilada Sauce |

My love for all things green runs reaaaaaal deep. Like, REAL deep. Super deep. It’s been my favorite color for at least 22 years now (I remember very consciously deciding, around age 5), and I’m sticking to it. Chile verde! Spinach! Green smoothies! GUAC! They all have my love. Trees! Shrubs! ANYTHING WITH CHLOROPHYL! Yeah,…

Rhubarb Grapefruit Custard Pie

When is the last time I made pie? Seriously, I can’t remember. I feel like I used to make pie ALL THE TIME, but honestly: I think it’s been nearly two years — maybe even since Thanksgiving two years ago! Living in Asia didn’t inspire any pie-baking, nor did the hot hot summer here in…

It’s Saturday! And apparently it’s National Pancake Day! And for me, it’s kind of a work day. OOF. Not that I’m complaining — you guys know I love my work — BUT: something about “working” on a Saturday feels a bit wrong to me. But, given that I took the last 2.5 days to camp…

Roasted Tomatillo and White Bean Soup

Does anyone else feel like no matter how much you sweep, you immediately need to sweep again? I swear I swept my apartment at least 4 times yesterday… and it’s not like I’m flinging dough and particulates all over the dang place — but it accumulates so quickly! I am by no means a neat…

I’m having a serious maple moment. As in, I frequently find myself thinking “What would this be like with maple syrup on it?” or “what would this taste like if I swapped ___ for maple syrup?” or “hey, nobody is here to judge me, I’m gonna drink that maple syrup straight from the bottle!” ……
