A Birthday Activity

Remember how I said the chocolate covered strawberry pie fueled my birthday activities? Well this is what I did on my birthday... 24 miles for my 24th birthday! A few weeks ago, some friends were half-jokingly saying I should do it because they knew of people that did. I had been thinking about it ever … Continue reading A Birthday Activity


Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie

This year I made my own birthday cake. How else are you supposed to get exactly the cake you want if you don’t make it yourself? Having returned from Puerto Rico that week, I wanted to keep up with the vegan deliciousness. Also, after eating so many whole foods and no processed sugar, cake and … Continue reading Chocolate Covered Strawberry Pie

Snowflakes, Super Bowl, and Smoothies

Most upsetting to me was that I had no leftover … Continue reading Starring: Apple Berry Pie

Then we brought them to Vesper Rowing Club potluck dinners, team gatherings, created a Facebook page … Continue reading A Cake Pop Reunion

It’s late enough in the morning that you can work up an appetite and early enough in the day that you can digest afterwards. We always ate brunch on … Continue reading Fall Brunch–Vanilla Bean Fig Scones

City Life

For the past two weeks, I have been “plant sitting” for my uncle and (now) aunt while they are on a beautiful honeymoon in New Zealand. This mostly means I get to live in Boston in an awesome apartment, with a roof deck and well-stocked with chocolate. I have not had much time to post … Continue reading City Life
