Blood Orange Vegan Bundt Cake

This Saturday, Kevin and I left the city for the afternoon. I've been craving the road in some way or another. This was just a short trip down to Providence for lunch at The Grange and dessert at Wild Flour bakery. The restaurant, which calls itself a vegetable restaurant, was just the right escape from Boston that I've been craving and the bakery was everything that I wanted - soy cream next...

Broiled Grapefruit

“Possessing by letting go of things was a secret of ownership unknown to youth.” - Yukio Mishima - Grapefruits are one of my obsessions this month, from warm grapefruit sake made to broiled grapefruit for breakfast or dessert. I'm skeptical about warm fruit, but pears and grapefruits have taught me that fruit actually tastes great when warm. Fruit sugars caramelize while cooking, which...

Champagne Cookies + Happy (Belated) New Year

The other night, I went to a new running group in the city and it was one of those nights when my snack was freezing in my hand on the way to the run.

Vegan Apple Pie Recipe

I grew up in a town that's known as Apple Hill. It's where all the people from the valley go to pick apples in the fall and Christmas trees in the winter. It's a tourist town. I can't count the number of times I heard people describing Apple Hill as adorable, rustic or earthy. I guess, it's all of those things & more. Every town has its own history & heartache. There is something...

Pistachio & Cashew Chocolate Cake Recipe

I've been needing my own battle cry of sorts these days. It seems like I'm great at making plans in my head & not the best at making them happen. I have ideas for my blog, side business or activities with my friends that always just slip through my hands. Time feels more like sand than ever. I've been running long distances & spending more time on my mat. In yoga last night, my chest...
