¡Black Bean and Sweet Potato Enchiladas!

¡Hola! ¡Enchiladas! Alright, that’s about as much Spanish as I can think of right now and it was mostly just  an excuse to use the super fun double/upside down exclamation point. That said, today I made a delicious new recipe! As you probably already read in the title (if you’re paying attention to things like [...]

Splitting the Sea

This was taken at the Hiram M. Chittenden Locks in Ballard. The way in which the light reflections on the water framed the bow of this old fishing boat caught my attention. This photo feels calm to me, and a bit cold. That may just be burned into my memory by the freezing December weather, [...]

Three Dancers

I guess it’s maybe wishful thinking on my part, but it feels like Winter is making it’s way slowly towards the Spring. This photo was taken in a garden on a day much like today; cold, grey, and beautiful.

Chicken Curry

Hello! It’s been much too long since I’ve posted here, but tonight I am happy to say that I have been inspired to post again! A few months ago Vina, my amazing coworker, brought some chicken curry to work with her and shared. It was amazing! After I bothered her incessantly for the recipe (sorry [...]

Apple (T)art

A few days ago a friend and co-worker did me a huge favour. She’s a really great person and she always keeps us laughing, so I wanted to do something nice for her in return.What better way to repay someone’s kindness than with delicious baked goods?! I have a great recipe for Apple Tart that [...]

The 35th Annual Wooden Boat Festival and 35 little wooden boats?

Okay. Maybe just two little wooden boats, but it had a nice ring to it and I am terrible at making titles. This weekend we braved the traffic and the burn-and-melt-inducing sun and headed out to the Wooden Boat Festival in Port Townsend. Some family friends (Richard, Kathy, and their son Matthew) were also in [...]

A Visit Home

Hello everyone (or anyone), It has been an inappropriately long time since I made a new post here on this lovely blog! I apologize for my absence. Finals, work, laziness and a lack of inspiration were all contributing factors (but honestly it was really mostly laziness). I am back now though with a quick post [...]

Bad Haircut

Today I woke up early to get the worst haircut of my life. Okay, well maybe the semi-bowl cut when I was 7 was worse, but definitely the worst haircut of my somewhat-adult life. I went to Headlines Salon at University Village because I am usually very happy with their work and as an employee [...]

Chicken Adobo and Homemade Butter

This will be my first real food post, so I am excited! I have been working on culinary enrichment lightly for the last couple of weeks. With Summer quarter classes and work it has been rather busy, but I have actually accomplished and photographed TWO of these incidents (thanks mostly to my mom calling me [...]

Waiting For Inspiration (and some seemingly random portraiture while we wait)

Oh hi there. It’s been a while, hasn’t it? I’ve been pretty overwhelmingly busy over the last couple of weeks. However, I do apologize to you, Reader, for essentially being a slacker. Here is what has been going on, in case you were wondering. -Moved out of old apartment. -Moved into new apartment. -Attended concert [...]
