in pursuit of more

living with just a little less

Well, I have to ask, how the heck did THAT happen? I don't think there has been a time since I started posting here that I've gone more than a month without sharing a recipe, or a few words, let alone two whole months and counting.

This recipe is another goodie from Bon Appetit a few issues ago, and it's a perfect example of what I need more of in my life: tasty, easy, cold noodle salads. It's also a great example of how much I appreciate my ever-evolving 'recipe selection system' which over the years basically amounts to clearing the fog on what I daydream about making, and what will…

First of all, I can honestly say I've never met a bowl of lentils and rice I didn't like. Last year, I spent quite a bit of time thinking of new creative ways to cook rice and lentils together, which culminated in this delicious meal that has been a popular one on the blog (even if it is just for that delicious sauce).

As I mentioned in my last post, podcasts are my new normal, and as the somewhat type A being that I am, I'm happy to have this opportunity to open my mind beyond reading (sometimes my eyes are not up for this), and those miles on the treadmill or steps on the stair master (my cardio of choice at the gym) definitely pass easier with…
