Make the most of the dwindling summer fruit: breakfast crumble

Seattle’s been weird this week; wildfire smoke clogging the city, everything hazy and unclear. I just got back from a fun little mini-holiday, both here and in Montana, following Pearl Jam (my long-standing beloved and most favorite band ever) for a few shows. It was […]

Meal plan: week of July 30

Well! Please accept my apologies for the unannounced hiatus. Life sometimes has a way of getting in the way, does it not? Turns out going on holiday for two weeks – and not being asked to cook a single meal while away – and then […]

Meal plan: week of June 25

Yes yes I know that it is in fact June 26, which makes the posting of a meal plan for the week of June 25  questionable at best, but I tell you what, it has been a week. A great, super fun week with beloved […]

Meal plan: week of june 18

Ok, so now it’s somehow properly summer. We had a little false alarm a few weeks back, but now it’s really here. We hit up the Fremont Solstice Parade this Saturday, which is quite a way to ring in the summer if you have never […]

Peppy – and peppery – quick lunch (or dinner): Cabbage and eggs

Peppy – and peppery – quick lunch (or dinner): Cabbage and eggs

Meal plan: week of June 4, 2018

What in the world, JUNE. How did that happen? This last week was a total blur of school functions; turns out, if I lose a productive Monday to sunshine and fun with the family, the rest of the week is kind of a shambles. House? Disaster. Refrigerator? […]

This weekend has been a baking bonanza for me, which is always a delight, until you realise you inadvertently presented your gluten-free host with lemon bars, confidently pronounced the curd gluten-free, and then later that evening broke out in a cold sweat remembering you added […]

My favorite, perfect lunch: eggy avocado toast with Vegemite and sambal oelek

LUNCH. I shake my fist at lunch, because I am always in a bit of a shambles trying to come up with something  healthy and sustaining to eat. Tell me your tricks, because of all the meals, lunch is the one that is most likely […]
