Customizable Dinner Salad

What do you eat when you’ve had pizza for three meals in a row? According to my lovely farm lady friends in Montana, this delicious (and surprisingly healthy) salad! It has a kale/spinach base and is tossed with a dijon dressing. As with any salad, the toppings really pull it all together. Ingredient options: choose the ones you like and…

Visual Diary: Baja California Eats

I am pretty sure my parents live closer to Mexico than LA, so it seemed reasonable that after 13 years of living in San Diego, they decided to go on a weekend trip to Baja California. This was my parent’s second time driving there and my first time joining them. We left San Diego around noon, drove through Tijuana, then…

Looking Forward to the Weekend

Since you’ve got time to kill before Sunday night: put the Game of Thrones characters on this chart of ugly, beautiful, bad, and good. Would President Trump let you move to America?

I Was Busy Thinking ‘Bout Boys

Retreat Recap + Playlist

This past weekend, four of us hopped into the car and bypassed the Gilroy Garlic Festival (though not its traffic-*sigh*) in favor of a weekend in Santa Barbara. It was three days of lounging on comfy white duvets, munching on homemade bread topped with TJ’s everything bagel spice, slurping up espressos, boogie boarding, snapping photos (in my case, endless amounts),…

My New Favorite Banana Bread!

Heads up the following Banana Bread recipe is VEGAN! But I am not…I promise you that this is the holy grail of banana bread recipes. Give it a chance, because I have made it three times in the last ten days and it’s never lasted more than four hours on the counter without being completely devoured. If that doesn’t sell…
