in pursuit of more

living with just a little less

Wow! It seems insane that it's been so long since I posted, and I've not much to say other than, "really, more than a whole week since the last post?". Yeah, that sounds lame I know. And trust me it is! I've shared before that things get busy, and it's a wonder we get what we get done in a day, but the truth is,…

When it comes to food, it's amazing how tastes can change over the years.

I had a great conversation the other night about the difference between food preparation & the whole idea of elevating cooking to the status of something beyond just the everyday. I don't know if it is the fact I am reading (albeit slowly) Michael Pollan's new book Cooked, or if I've had just as many conversations about food in the past two years as I've…

Holla folks! Today I've got a snappy little meal in one to share with you as I jaunt off for another summer adventure. This time I'll combine a little work & a little play, but I am off to the islands until Sunday and I couldn't be more up for it! If you've followed me for a while, then you may already know about my…
