A BATTLE ON SACRED GROUND

If you ask a woman what she loves about her body, she will likely name one or two minor things – she has long eyelashes or shiny hair. If you ask a woman to name what she hates about her body – well, the conversation can go on ad nauseam. Let’s end that. Let’s stop the negative chatter about our bodies. Let’s change the conversation – because there are so much more life to live than what we limit ourselves to.

PLEASURE IS A PANCAKE: BUCKWHEAT PANCAKES WITH BANANAS & CHOCOLATE CHIPS

Chocolate chip pancakes remind me of college brunch with my friend Val, whereas I can never eat banana pancakes without listening to Jack Johnson. Put them together and, well, it makes the best weekend breakfast (or dinner!). The addition of a few interesting ingredients make these pancakes super special. Whip up a batch yourself and see.

CHOOSE YOUR OWN ADVENTURE: RAMEN BOWLS TWO WAYS

When I was a child, I had an undying love for those little packets of ramen that filled your belly so cheaply and (to me then, at least) with such satisfaction.

A (VERY INAUTHENTIC) CARBONARA

As a vegetarian, my carbonara will never be by-the-book authentic, but it’s pretty damn good in its own right. Buon appetito and enjoy.

LOVE AND GRATITUDE (AND PASTA)

I have always had an affinity for love stories – and I undoubtedly always will. Little did I know that the more experience I had with those moments of romantic love the more I would appreciate their complements – the love found in family, friendship, and, perhaps, greatest of all, that elusive love of self.
