Madame Vice President

Madame Vice President

Kamala Harris is the first female Vice President of the United States and the first person of color to hold this office. This is a prime example of Yin and Yang. When Trump was elected in 2016, I was devastated. Now, I’m truly elated. The […]

[Con] Artist

[Con] Artist

I’m thinking of plagiarizing my cousin Joe’s work. Joe is a famous artist, if you live in NYC or are well-versed in contemporary art or pretend you like obscure things, you might know him. We have the same initials, so I feel like it’s an […]

Customer Service

Customer Service

I’ve decided that I don’t like the term ‘customer service’ in relation to my profession. In my experience, customer service is where you end up when you’re frustrated and need help or you’re not sure what you want—that’s not my clients and it’s not me. […]

Gratitude & COVID-19

Gratitude & COVID-19

I received an incredibly thoughtful email from a wonderful human named Mary-Anne today. Mary-Anne got in touch with me because she and her Girl Scout Troop stumbled across some of the resources that I shared while working on their Go Green badges, which they’re currently […]

Home

Home

I hung all of our wall decorations this weekend. Family photos, framed dictionary pages, the print of the great white rearing back out of the sea in a hail of pepperoni pizza slices that Eric gave me [because he has exceptional taste]. I want everything […]

Precision

Precision

Baking is about precision absent of stinginess. Allow enough butter for the bowl, molasses for the spoon, flour for your hands. As you work, keep in mind that there’s possibly nothing in the kitchen more beautiful than softened [vegan] butter mixed with sugar forming sandy […]

Why I’m Not Vegan.

Why I’m Not Vegan.

I am not a vegan and I’ve been thinking about it a great deal lately. I love animals, I hate factory farming, I’m dairy free, so why not? Three reasons: eggs, oysters, and my husband. Eggs Chickens are believed to be resultant of the ancestral […]

Hurricane Florence & Spaghettios

Hurricane Florence & Spaghettios

Last week, I baked for the first time since we moved to the low country. I was feeling, centered, peaceful, good—FINALLY. Then, Charleston announced a mandatory evacuation due to the threat posed by hurricane Florence. We’re New Englanders, we can handle feet of snow and […]

Low Country-Bound

Low Country-Bound

A week ago today, we officially (and unexpectedly) took up residence in Charleston, South Carolina. Just five short days after my Amazingly Significant Other became my husband, we packed up the car, cats, and made the 16+ hour trip to SC to pursue a new opportunity. I’m […]

The NoMad Hotel

The NoMad Hotel

This past week, Eric and I had the great pleasure of visiting some of the best food and beverage spots that LA and Seattle have to offer, the most notable being The NoMad Hotel. The NoMad was especially memorable for the excellent food but also […]
