Here we are, in the final days of 2014. It has been quite a year, and I look forward to sharing some reflections with you all later this week. For now, some weekend reading, brought to you while Steven and I dance into the wee hours at my friend Gabi’s wedding. Enjoy!
Christmas is over, but this green and red zucchini pasta dish is still calling my name!
This cauliflower and avocado salad with pomegranate seeds is so gorgeously simple, yet colorful, and I imagine that the texture is fantastic, too.
Speaking of gorgeous salads, this beet, walnut, and celery salad sure is easy on the eyes.
Need to put some pep into your breakfast routine? This fig and blueberry chia pudding is sure to lift your spirits on a cold morning.
These raw chocolates with raspberry and pink salt are incredibly easy, but look at how lovely they are! Can’t wait to try them.
1. A cool article about how an older medical technology–massive blood transfusion–can be used to save womens’ lives following childbirth.
2. A sad, complicated article about situations where the wish to die is denied to those who are terminally ill. No easy conclusions here.
3. Doctors are now writing exercise prescriptions. Though of course the encouragement of exercise is only one part of a big picture when it comes to health, at least this is an advance for preventive medicine.
4. A very cool story about storybook archetypes, how and why they work, and what makes them stand the test of time.
5. I had no idea that much harm is being done to bees in the quest to investigate their population decline. An interesting examination of the research that’s in progress, and whether there’s another way.
Happy Sunday, friends!
Happy Sunday. It has been a very hot, if beautiful and sunny weekend here in New York. I’ve gotten caught up on email and work, and now I’m back in the process of cooking, testing, and cooking some more. It’s not the most ideal time of the year to have the stove and/or the oven on, but the creative juices are flowing, and that’s what matters. Lots of interesting articles this week, as well as a few beautiful standout recipes from blogger friends. Recipes…
I’m drafting this post from a room that’s only a few blocks away from where my old apartment used to be in Washington, D.C.. I’m down here because my cousin’s twin babies were baptized over the weekend, and my mom and I made the trip to celebrate them. It’s a short trip, only two nights. My hope was to come down earlier and spend time catching up with my friends here, but with all of the recent feeling unwell, I wanted to spend…
Happy Sunday, friends, and happy Easter to those of you who are celebrating. It was a long and busy week here, but the weekend has brought a lot of happiness–namely, Steven’s and my two year anniversary yesterday. It’s hard to believe that it’s been two years since we met, both in such different places in our lives and living in DC. One move, two grad school programs, one career shift, and four semesters later, we’re still relishing the experience of living together and learning…
Hi friends, and happy Sunday. I hope you’ve all had nice weekends. Mine has been busy, but I’m looking forward to a quiet, homey day of work. In the meantime, here are the recipes that have been catching my eye lately — and the articles I read this week. Irish soda bread recipes are all over the web this week, in preparation for St. Patrick’s Day, but I thought these Irish soda bread scones (vegan + GF) were a particularly creative and tasty spin on…
