• Triple berry cinnamon swirl bread

    Lesson learned: Always trust Joy the Baker. When Joy posted a baking bootcamp challenge a few weeks ago, I was super excited to attempt the baking part, but also concerned that I wouldn’t like the result. You know I am a big weirdo with all sorts of strange food issues, and one of those issues is […]

  • Camp Pendleton Mud Run

    I was super bummed when my eye doctor told me I shouldn’t do the Camp Pendleton Mud Run with Toby and my dad, as planned, but I was still able to go and take photos. It turns out it was probably a good idea for me not to do it, because it was quite a […]

  • Orange-glazed chicken stir fry

    Because of my pickiness, my weirdness and my shellfish allergy, I didn’t really eat Chinese food growing up. But my mom LOVES Chinese food, and once I learned how to order something that won’t kill me, I realized I actually do like things like General Tso’s chicken and fried rice. You know, the healthy stuff. […]

  • An open letter to jeans manufacturers

    Dear jeans manufacturers: Y’all, I love jeans. I have dozens of pairs – from deepest indigo to perfectly distressed cornflower, straight leg to boyfriend cut – and I wear them constantly. I hate how my hands, legs and even shoes turn blue after wearing the darkest pairs, and I could do without this trend of […]

  • Karlie Kloss + Warby Parker

    I’ve always been kind of terrible about remembering to bring and wear sunglasses, but since moving to sunny California, I’ve been making a conscious effort to wear them more often — especially when driving and at the beach. I have several pairs already, of course, but I’m always on the lookout for a new pair. […]

  • Strawberry coconut milk ice cream

    Though mint chocolate chip ice cream and coconut gelato tend to be my favorite frozen treats, sometimes only strawberry ice cream (or a strawberry milkshakes) will do. This is particularly true of homemade ice cream, which is definitely better (and easier) in certain flavors — like peach and strawberry. But as obsessed as I am with all […]

  • Fab Fave Friday: What to eat at Disneyland

    If you follow me on Instagram, you’ve probably noticed that Toby and I are basically obsessed with Disneyland, and go there constantly. We also tend to eat quite a lot while we’re there. So today, I wanted to share some of our favorites with you, in case you’re hitting the park and didn’t bring your […]

  • What I’ve been reading

    Thanks to all the traveling I’ve been doing this year, I’ve been doing a bit more reading than I have the past few years, which is definitely a good thing. But I just realized we haven’t talked about any books around here for a while. So let’s get to it! The Goldfinch: It’s not exactly […]
