Hippy Dippy

I just had a moment.

After retrieving my leftover brown rice and veggie stir fry from the microwave, and tossing out the empty shells of edamame I just snacked on, something occurred to me as I grabbed my reusable bamboo silverware.

I am eating so freakin' crunchy right now.

Dude, pass me the patchouli and let's go compost, okay?

This morning, I enjoyed my first-ever cup of Sweet Rose Tulsi tea, gifted by a co-worker. It's "tea" made from basil and though I expected it to be super-floral, it was very light and soothing. Take that, over-caffinated Folgers guzzlers!

The edamame was recommended by another co-worker and I am lovin' them - Trader Joe's makes them lightly salted in their shells and they're fun to pop open and enjoy raw.

The brown rice stir fry..well, it was an easy dinner last night and healthy, as opposed to the Five Guys & Fries meal I really wanted but was too lazy and guilt-tripped to seek out. So there.

Today I am eating very healthy and it feels great, albeit a little hippified.


  1. Love the crunching, sister bear... Just watch out, and don't get addicted to Wasabi peas they are crunchy and delish!

  2. Nothing wrong with crunchy...helps grow flowers in your hair! I just had some small feather extensions put into my hair out here in CO...I'll out hippy=dippy you anytime!

  3. Ha! Too funyy, I did eat Five Guys for dinner. Bacon cheeseburger and cajun french fries.

Friends with Benefits: Meet EV Originals

I love that feeling when a friend accomplishes something wonderful.

Maybe because I'm a only child and thus friends often feel like family, or maybe it's just because we all need a little more raising up these days.

So when I heard that a friend from the Nashville, TN area who co-founded and operates a catering business decided to share her culinary talents with the masses and create a line of bottled products, EV Originals, I did a big ol' happy dance.

Some Like It Hot -- And Toasted on Both Sides

The latest news in appliances seems to indicate there's no love for the good ol' traditional Crock-Pot.
Fictional drama aside, the slow cooker most of us grew up with is receiving some healthy competition from the new hot thing, the Instapot
But in our house, we're having a face-off with a completely different category of kitchen appliances -- it's the Toaster vs Toaster Oven.

The Best Way to Keep Cannoli Fresh and Other Baltimore Stories

My mom and step-dad were up visiting for Thanksgiving and after gorging ourselves on turkey and the sites of D.C., I took them on a day-trip to Baltimore.

After a visit to my mom's favorite museum (she's a mosaic artist), we aimed for lunch at Rocket to Venus in Hampden. It was closed for lunch, but our trip up Charles St. wasn't for naught - we stumbled onto residents of 34th St. setting up their Christmas displays! This street is Christmas at its best, or worst, depending on your tolerance/interest in all things Christmas. Erin teases me for being a scrooge, but I have to admit, lights and what-not are nice at this cold and dark time of year.

After a brief walk through Hampden, we aimed for lunch at Kooper's Tavern in Fells Point. The tavern was most certainly open, with rowdy sports fans packing the bar and even spilling onto the sidewalk for fresh-shucked oysters. (My friend Gideon would have camped out right there for their Chincoteagues!) After some deliberati…
