Crafty Bastards happens just once a year in DC, and I was thrilled when my schedule actually lined up to allow me to spend a solid few hours there back in late September with my friend Jessica (see her recap).  Also, almost as key, it was not pouring and freezing as it was back in […]

Raw Pumpkin Spice Latte

IMG_0471

Did you know the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte is 10 years old this fall? It sure feels like it has been around longer than that, probably because I have a vague recollection of having a pumpkin spice latte when I was in college –  maybe at Trident’s though I suspect, more likely, at  a coffee […]

It’s been a while everyone – since we last spoke, I have done … a lot, maybe too much, seeing as there’s been no pause button. And I have lots of tell you about  – I made it to  Crafty Bastards, GreenFest, and DC VegFest, but also took a jaunt to Taste of DC.  I […]

Looking forward to Green Festival, DC VegFest & Crafty Bastards

Weekend Oct 027

As is often the case when shootings or other terrible things happens, but I am lucky to not be directly affected, I compartmentalize.  And disconnect from the newscycle, limit FB newsfeed reading, and mostly avoid Twitter. Mostly, though, I think of things to look forward to. Fortunately, this month is good for that.  Three of […]

Sauteed greens quinoa black beans sweet potato tahini sauce

It is September 15, and back to school season has already been replaced with Halloween marketing. It has been just about 10 days since I got back from almost 2 weeks of travel, which was on the heels of almost another week of travel earlier in August, and life feels on warp speed.   There has […]

On Infusing Some “New” Into My Yoga Practice

July 23, 2013
Epicyoga

Happy Monday! Yesterday, for the first time in a long time, I went to yoga at 11am, which is late in the day for me. Usually I go to 7am classes, and occasionally to a 9am class on weekends. I always think I am not that flexible (despite going on a dozen years of yoga, […]

Not like Google Reader

June 30, 2013

Happy Sunday! I just wanted to pop by and remind you that Google Reader is closing tomorrow.  Considering that Google Reader graduated out of Google Labs around the time I started blogging regularly, almost six years ago, this is all kinds of odd.  I spent the last couple of months mulling what post-Reader alternative I […]

One Week to End Fistulas

OWEF Horizontal

Happy May – rather than say how-is-it-already-May-and-yes-I-miss-blogging and my usual beginning of month/end of month intro’s, let me tell you about my friend Olivia. I met Olivia through blogging a few years ago, and we eventually met in person in DC, and then I saw her when I was in San Diego, and now she […]

Top 6 Favorites for 6 Years

April 11, 2013

Somehow, this blog is now six years old. I am not quite sure how that happened (oh right, time passes and we all get older), but I do know that over the years, I have enjoyed being part of the blogging community, getting to know many of all of you and just generally exploring life […]

Gluten-Free Vegan Eats at Rosa Mexicano

March 29, 2013
misc 005

I love guacamole. I also love fancy vegetable tacos. I was very, very sad when I started getting sick eating at Oyamel and feeling like somehow I was reacting to gluten.  By some serendipity, I had a work dinner at Rosa Mexicano over the summer, which means I had to do my usual due diligence. […]

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I had a green hummus recipe for you all today, but (1) I have not yet taken pictures and (2) I made this hash last night and it is so so so good, that I did not want to wait any longer to share it with you. Also, the recipe has […]

Every time I go to DTDC (DanceTrance DC) at Balance Gym, near Thomas Circle, I walk by the recently opened second location of Chix DC, a local responsible eatery with a commitment to organic ingredients, and keep meaning to check it out.  In addition to the second location being terrible convenient, Chix also happens to […]

Strawberry Almond Macaroons

About the same time as the Hail Merry strawberry macaroons I bought for Christmas ran out, I had some almond pulp, left over from making almond milk.  Seeing as my local Whole Foods and health food stores are generally the last to get the new fancy delicious products (yes, #firstworldproblems) I decided to put the […]

Snowquester –> More Like Rainquester–> Noquester

March 6, 2013

So Happy SnowNoquester – these last couple of days have been bizarre. Washington, DC is just odd about weather events, but this one may be the weirdest – there was never actually any snow that stuck, yet most of DC was shut down and everyone I know was working from home. Truly bizarre. So yes, […]
