burnt cauliflower soup + poms

I crave veggies all winter long.

Our bodies need the nutrients from veggies to build up our immunity during cold months. This burnt veggie soup is basically a pro-tip for how to get tons of veggies in every spoonful, in a sneaky delicious way. I almost want to call this February Soup because it's perfect for this time of flu/cold season.

winter roots + radicchio hash

January: the time of year where you renew your commitment to eating healthy while simultaneously covering your body in thick coats, wrapped scarfs, and boots. It can be tricky to stay away from indulging during the cold season! I'd love to see the stats on my hot cocoa and latte purchases over the last month. 

Thankfully, this is also a time of year where roots, kept warm in the ground are fresh and flavorful.  I have a hard time eating single serving of veggies (raw or cooked), but I can't stop loving on a mixture of vegetables with grains, fruits, and tasty dressing on top. Thereby, this little guy was born. This recipe is as versatile as your farmers market. I'll include flavor pair substitutions in case you'd like to mix it up.

gift guide 2017

Over the last year, I've made a point to find products and brands that promote creativity over consumerism, encourage me to slow down and simplify rather than accrue more clutter, and enable me to feel I've made intentional choices rather than swept up by circumstances. 

Until recently, I would have turned to bigger stores for my gift giving. They offer plenty of diverting and lovely things to give, however, since discovering the world of small and simple, handmade and homegrown businesses and makers, I've reworked my opinions and tastes on what makes a thoughtful gift.

dumbo guide

Maybe the most picturesque part of NYC (I should know, I carry a camera everywhere I go ;), is DUMBO on the water's edge in Brooklyn. "DUMBO," an acronym for "down under the manhattan bridge overpass," is a tiny area of Brooklyn between the Brooklyn and Manhattan bridges. Flanked by these two giants, and facing the entire skyline of Manhattan, DUMBO is home to some of the best businesses, shopping, and events in Brooklyn.

My sister, Alyssa, and her husband Jackson, are moving to New York City! This is a dream come true. I can't count the number of times in the last few years, since moving to NYC, that I either silently or out loud wished that I could have a sister near. This solves practically the only problem I have with New York! (now if I can get a decent mountain to snowboard on, I'll never leave!!!)
