When Voles Take Over the World

You were wanting another rodent post in your life, weren’t you? Don’t worry though, it’s not as traumatic (or hilarious) as last time. For the first time ever we decided to sign up for a farm CSA through WSU Organic Farm. Our first pick-up is this Friday, May 29th and we are very excited! I …

Be the Good…

Believe there is good in the world. Jeremy picked up this piece at an artisan collective in Idaho over the summer. We having it hanging in our bedroom on the wall behind our bed. It’s gorgeous with alternating shades of reclaimed wood. More importantly it’s a nice proverb to wake up to in the morning. Believe There …

Happy 2015!

Happy 2015! We celebrated the New Year yesterday with Champagne, Dominion (a card game), and binge watching Twin Peaks. It was awesome. Over the break I’ve been sorting and organizing ALL of my photos. So many of them food/recipe photos. I was prompted to start this painstaking process when I received notifications that my hard …

  Don’t write the entire time. The inn sits back and up from route 12 situated at the bottom of an old logging road with the owner’s residence directly across the gravel driveway. I cracked open the door as I turned in my seat, preparing my stiff legs for movement when the fresh forest air crawled …

I can’t tell you how excited I was to randomly learn of this opportunity. A chance to hunker down, stare at …

Can Vegans Donate Blood?

Absolutely! I still remember the first time I gave blood. The City of Batavia, where I worked at the time, was hosting a blood drive in the council chambers. I thought I had discovered an absolutely legit way to get out of work for an hour. I recall being so nervous I was trembling. I had no idea …

Looking for Changes and an Early Paul McCartney Crush

We just finished watching this past Sunday’s episode of Mad Men and I was flipping through the cable guide when I saw a Paul McCartney and the Wings concert was playing on Palladia. Yes. Something about me you might not know, but when I was in 6th grade—in 1993—I was in love with Paul McCartney. Beatles …

So You Forgot to Start the Crock Pot

It happens. It happened to me yesterday. I woke up a little earlier than normal, headed to the kitchen and pulled my already-sliced eggplant and already-made tofu ricotta from the refrigerator and loaded the crock pot. I made Kathy Hester’s to die for Italian Eggplant Casserole with Cashew-Tofu Ricotta [recipe]. I’ve made this several times and always wish …
