Delicata Squash and Spinach Salad with Dried Cherries and Goat Cheese

Next week I’m going to see Bob Dylan. I’ve already come to terms with the fact that it will probably be a terrible concert. I hate to say that – but know that I love him, obviously I’m going to see him – but his voice has changed, I don’t know a lot of his more recent music, and he doesn’t seem like the most … Continue reading Delicata Squash and Spinach Salad with Dried Cherries and Goat Cheese

Honeycrisp Apple with Caramelized Onion and Gruyere Cheddar Grilled Cheese

The past 4 months have been insane. For those who don’t know (you obviously haven’t been paying attention), I completed an 8-week yoga teacher training over the summer. At the beginning of September, I then participated in a 5-week extensions program that went more in-depth than the initial training: how to make a playlist for a class, assists and adjustments, muscle actions cues, how to … Continue reading Honeycrisp Apple with Caramelized Onion and Gruyere Cheddar Grilled Cheese

Creamy Zoodles with Asparagus and Goat Cheese

This week, I start an 8-week long teacher training program with CorePower Yoga. I’m scared, excited, mostly nervous, and feel very fortunate.

I finally decided to take advantage of the summer program opportunity for many reasons. It … Continue reading Creamy Zoodles with Asparagus and Goat Cheese

I’ve been feeling nostalgic lately, more so than usual. I miss my friends; all of them. A lot of them are in New York, New Hampshire, one in Colorado, two in South Carolina, Vermont, Connecticut, a few in California, and even Rhode Island and Massachusetts. My family is only 45 minutes away and yet I don’t see them enough. I want to be able to … Continue reading Berry Cream Cheese Danishes

Vegetable Fried Quinoa

I’m leaving for Germany in two weeks!  It doesn’t seem real. I have planned pretty much everything out; from the flights to the restaurants to the museums and the streets we will wander; the food trucks and the beer and the hostels; the buses and the tour. But it still feels like it’s not enough, like I’m not prepared or know what I’m getting myself … Continue reading Vegetable Fried Quinoa

Shrimp Crack Slaw 

Since I began reading Alice Waters and Chez Panisse, an authorized biography by Tom McNamee, my mind has been wandering to the French countryside, where she immersed herself in the most expensive foods and wines; went to the marketplace and glorified in fresh foods; through Italy and Turkey where she road-tripped through; and houses in the foothills of the Alps where she met friends for feasts, … Continue reading Shrimp Crack Slaw
