Oatmeal Obsession

The other day I was filling out an application for a flash fiction writing fellowship (it’s here, if you’re interested!) and this was the last question: Tell us one other (non-writing-related thing) about you. This could be anything–a greatest fear, an unusual hobby, a favorite song or movie, or what you had for breakfast this morning. Oh man. I had…

The State of Grocery Shopping in 2017

When one of my coworkers told me about Good Eggs, I knew it was something I wanted to try. She explained during lunch that Good Eggs is an SF-based company that does online grocery delivery. They promise to deliver produce within a day or two of harvest and have all of the Bay Area favorites (Cowgirl Creamery, Acme, Tartine, Full…

Chicken Soup for the Soul

I remember those Chicken Soup for the Soul books I used to see all the time when at bookstores or the library. I looked at the covers again and they seem very 90’s and early 2000’s to me, which is probably around the last time I picked one up. In case you haven’t heard of them, the general idea of…

How to Wing It: Cooking Black-Eyed Peas

I’d like to introduce you to my friend, the black-eyed pea. Actually a bean, these guys are packed with protein and fiber, as well as magnesium, iron, and calcium, and they taste awesome. I’m not trying to Columbus black-eyed peas: to people in the south and African American communities across the country these legumes are old news. But I know…

Satisfy Your Inner Bunny With This Carrot Cake

Though Easter wasn’t my original inspiration, it is a wonderful excuse indulge in this carrot cake. Everyone is so thoughtful about making Santa cookies, but who ever leaves a piece of cake for the Easter Bunny?! Mhmm. That’s what I thought. The first time I made this cake was for Bianca’s birthday, during the semester Abbey went hopping down to…

Birthday Pie

My boyfriend is one of those strange creatures who doesn’t like cake. It’s not even a feeling of dislike, more of vague indifference. Which is not exactly what you look for as a reaction to a birthday baked good. So, mud pie (what’s not to like- chocolate? coffee ice cream??) came on my radar three years ago, back in the college…
