In which we embrace the plant-base
(Oh hi, it’s been a while, we’re changing things on the blog, etc.) We’ve been cooking a lot of plant-based dishes lately. This summer, we had a big scare when Justin’s dad had a heart attack. He’s doing great now (walking a lot, eating better, and losing weight!), but at the time, we just didn’t […]
Evolution of Blog Post Titles
I’ve been blogging for over 10 years. Actually, it will be 11 years next month! So much has changed in the blog world since I started.

This photo was taken in the spring, when it was cool enough to sit out on the patio and drink rum and read The Hobbit. Right now it’s 100 degrees out there, and the only way I’m sitting outside is if I’ve just jumped in the pool. I always wonder why I’m still in Austin. […]
I’d like to say that I love smoothies. I mean, sometimes I do. I made this lovely little number a while back, with layers of mango, banana, and strawberry. And then I pretty much didn’t make one for months. In other news, I’m feeling a bit creative again. It’s been quite some time since I’ve […]
Time just flies by, doesn’t it? A quote that prods me forward: The trouble is, you think you have time.
