What I’m Thankful For – Life Update

November 22, 2018

I’m sitting here, in my new apartment, surround by all the things I’d packed away a month ago. I’m sipping coffee from my infamous “dad” mug, with the Macy’s day parade on mute and my chill playlist streaming from my Spotify. All I have to do today is pack a bag for the weekend. All I have to do today is pick out cute outfits, board the train and head to see my family for Thanksgiving dinner. I cannot tell you how thankful I am for today. Continue Reading

Gluten-Free Halloween

October 25, 2018

A typical Halloween: I’m dressed as Oscar the Grouch, sitting on the counter in my friends’ kitchen with gummy worms in my punch. Batman is blowing cheese balls out of his mouth and cookie monster is chugging a beer – wait, what? Did I mention I’m almost twenty-seven? Halloween, man, it’s one of those holidays that gets weirder with age. And I’m not just talking about the costumes. Instead of trick or treating, we’re chugging and icing, and keg-standing and Jell-O shot making. And all I’m sayin’ is… what happened to the candy?  Continue Reading

On-The-Go Breakfast Sandwiches… For Beginners

April 18, 2018

Yes the title of this post is supposed to make you laugh, and yes, believe it or not this has been one of my most requested posts since I started blogging. That and a meal plan, but first things first! Let’s start with the most important meal of the day, shall we? Breakfast- it can make or break your morning, and I’m not talking about leaving you hungry. I can’t tell you how many times rushing to get out the door has caused me to burn my eggs, crack eggs on the floor, and say “screw it” to eggs and grab a granola bar or even worse… nothing at all. Then there are those other mornings that #workfromhomelife reminds me that I can indeed whip up something delicious and nutritious in a matter of minutes- it just requires a little patience and a little rhythm, something I tend to lack early in the a.m., or when I’m running late.

So friends- the solution? Prep. Yeah I said it, and no you’re not going to want to do this Sunday afternoon, but will you thank me, and the gods, when you’re munching on a warm bacon and egg breakfast sammy on your way to work Wednesday morning? You betcha. Alright, let’s do thissss- Continue Reading
