It’s Marathon Sunday in New York! Otherwise known as, one the greatest, if not the greatest, day of the year in New York. For years I stood on the sidelines of First Avenue near mile 19, along with my running team, cheering on marathoners and handing out bananas and oranges. For years I also swore I’d […]

Vegan Pumpkin Mousse

It’s time for a big dose of dessert today. Because, it’s been far, far too long since we’ve been down this road. I’m honestly a little puzzled how this happened. There were cookies back in September, I bombarded you with ice cream and sorbet all through the summer, but the last time I shared a […]

Yesterday I went to my first Pilates class in about, oh, six years. I used to go all the time (six years ago). Then I discovered triathlon, and in between all the sim, bike and run, I had all I could do to fit in some strength training, let alone fit in Pilates.  So, it […]

Braised Chicken Thighs with Olives and Lemon

Olives and I haven’t always gotten along. They were definitely an acquired taste. I’m pretty sure it was the saltiness that deterred me all those year. Ironically that’s what I’ve come to love about olives these days. I’m not exactly what triggered my change of heart, or even when it happened. And it started slowly. […]

For a long time one of my biggest frustration with living in New York City was the cost of living. In particular, groceries. Somewhere along the way I found a happy medium between feeling constantly annoyed by overpriced grocery stores/lack of inexpensive options and accepting it. Mostly because I didn’t have a choice.

Weekend Things + pumpkins

Hi, friends! It’s kind of hard to believe that last week on Sunday morning I was paddling around Safety Harbor in Florida, making friends with manatees and reveling in the 80-degree sunshine. This morning I’m reaching for a sweater.   * i’m finally reading this book, and I cannot put it down! It is soooooo […]

Harissa Roasted Green Beans

It was totally unplanned, but apparently I’m on a side dish kick this week. I love green beans, especially Roasted Green Beans, though I don’t make them nearly enough. A while ago when L and I were shopping for dinner groceries I suggested green beans. He claimed mentioned he didn’t like them. What’s not to […]

Hello from sunny Florida! We’re spending the weekend in and around Tampa for a friend’s wedding. In addition to tearing up the dance floor, we also managed to take advantage of outdoor lap pools (I really need to live in a place where these exist!), running near the water and some solid beach time. It […]
