Or, “How we ate our CSA this week when it was far too hot to make a galette!” We’ve been enjoying the fruits (or shall I say veggies) of our CSA this summer. Each Friday we get a box full of reasons not to go anywhere beyond our kitchen or do anything beyond craft new… Read More


I’ve been meaning to write this post since we returned but I wanted to make sure I had the time and photos to do it justice! Without further excuse, here’s what we did on Independence Day 2016. My best friend of 30 years lives with her husband on the side of a mountain in Vermont… Read More


I’ve been working on streamlining my life for a while and I’m learning it’s going to be a work in progress forever. It’s not just about a one-and-done cleaning marathon a la Marie Kondo, but an ongoing self-care check-in to ensure I’m focusing on what’s truly important to me. I just finished coursework for an… Read More


Last spring I signed up for a memoir class at the local college that started in June. I’ve been working on my book since I was living it but haven’t done much in the way of formatting, editing, or adding to it since I finished the Arizona sections upon completion of the list. I know… Read More


I can’t believe I’m posting this recipe. Actually, I can’t believe it took me three days to post it. I’ve been too busy devouring the entire batch of my brand-new Protein Cheesecake Cupcakes. I saw this post on Chocolate Covered Katie for Cheesecake Cupcakes a few weeks back and bookmarked it to try. I love cheesecake… Read More


We decided to join a CSA for the first time this summer. Since we’ve both been living alone for so long it didn’t make sense to buy a subscription to a massive box of produce for just one person. But now  it does! So we joined up with Summer Wind Farms in NJ and anxiously… Read More

However, I’ve continued to have adventures, so here’s a short recap on our recent weekend in the Catskills –… Read More

Last week I mentioned how I used to be considerably less involved in creating what I ate. Although I mentioned how simple healthy food prep can be, I forgot to mention it’s also pretty inexpensive. Being a vegetarian means I’m never ordering the $46 steak at a restaurant, and it also means I eat a… Read More


It’s finally here…my first recipe posting! This isn’t a recipe I created – that credit belongs to the Lean Green Bean – but I did make some changes and they are a hit in our house!   First, the obvious: why “wanderings, writings, and recipes?” Shouldn’t I just pick one thing to focus on – whether… Read More


I have a spare 20 minutes before I need to head to my piano student but I’ve already left the office for the day. Not enough time to go home, I can’t go get a snack with my Invisalign in, the weather is threatening another thunderstorm, so what’s a woman to do? I’m reclined in… Read More
