A Lack of Colour

I’ve been feeling heavily uninspired in the kitchen lately. We’ve been eating a lot of pasta, a lot of Marcella Hazan’s 3 ingredient tomato sauce on top of said pasta, a lot of bread-based meals and boring grains. Whether it’s the grey cast days we’ve been having lately or the general lack of colour in […]

life is good, I am happy

Sweet jeeze and peas. I’m back…. or am I? It’s been a long time. After my last post, as I struggled my way through post-partum depression/anxiety, I realized I needed to put all my focus on my family and my health and let everything else fall to the wayside. It’s been hard finding my way […]

And in making them without thinking, I often forget that everything can […]

Soup and Stories [Tom Kah Gai]

Let me first start by telling you my laptop mysteriously shut down just as I was about to click “post” on a completely finished entry.
