The tightening of my jeans tells me I definitely ate during the winter, but, as has happened many a time before, I’ve neglected to write about it. I admire food bloggers who make this their living, and grace the Internet with beautiful photography and mouthwatering recipes.

Well, it’s the end of September, I’m officially in my late twenties, and I haven’t blogged since June. Many changes have come since then, the biggest of which is the news that I’m moving out the country in June 2016 to serve with the U.S. Peace Corps. So, that’s my excuse. If you’d like to … More Creamy Butternut Squash Soup
So damn good. Like, for real, lemon chicken is amazeballs. I think that word is obnoxious, but, damn this was delicious. Of course it would be, it was inspired by Her Greatness, Ina Garten. I own five of her cookbooks. Someday I aspire to throw parties like Queen Ina. But if there’s one criticism I … More Lemon Chicken with Asparagus. So damn good.
