2014 IN RETROSPECT + THOUGHTS ON 2015

2014-2015 Happy New Year! I know I’m about a week late with this post, but I figured better late than never, right? I’m not a big fan of New Year’s resolutions: I believe that every day is a good day to make a change in your life. Having said that, I do like the collective positive mindset that the new year seems to bring around. I find January is always full of promise and possibility.

I can hardly believe it, but I’m thrilled the holidays are coming up, and I’m looking forward to next week when I’ll start making my home a little more festive. For now though, I’m looking forward to Thanksgiving weekend, as we’ve been invited to dinner at a friend’s house. It’s a potluck aff ... Read More





        

PASTA WITH CHICKPEAS AND CHERRY TOMATOES

pasta with chickpeas I love pasta. And not because I’m part Italian (although I suspect that does have a little bit to do with it), but because it’s so simple—and quick—to make. You can take the humblest of ingredients and transform them into a meal that’s both filling and delicious, and most importantly: much better for you than ordering takeout because you’re too tired to cook (or don’t have the time to). This particular pasta has made a regular appearance on our dinner table these past few weeks. I originally made it out of ... Read More
