I’ve discovered that it is quite difficult to have a full-time job, plan a wedding, and keep up with regular posting for a food blog that has original illustrations for each post. I have no plans to abandon this little project of mine, but I’ve also come to terms with the fact that I need to let it chug along at its own speed. I want this space to always be a place of joy for me, rather than a cause of stress. So I’m just letting you know, my dear and lovely readers, that this blog might slow down a bit more than I would like it to over the next several months. Thank you for riding along with me. Here are some things I’ve been loving this month: [Read more…]
The summer before my senior year of college I did this crazy thing where I commuted from Philly to NYC for an internship, Monday through Thursday, for 10 weeks. Also, even though it was the hottest summer of my entire life, I did this other crazy thing where I had hot chocolate every day.

I pin a lot of recipes. I get irrationally sad and frustrated sometimes because I know I could never make all of them. These “Wish List” posts are a way for me to highlight some of the amazing recipes I would like to make, with each one focusing on a specific ingredient or type of food, etc. If you make something from here, please let me know! I will live vicariously through you.
Some of you may be sick of pumpkin, but Thanksgiving isn’t even over yet, so please excuse me for this.
I used to steer clear of pumpkin things, because all I ever really had it in was pumpkin pie. Well the thing is – I don’t really like pumpkin pie. Surprising, right? I know, I’m weird. Once I started getting really interested in cooking and following food blogs, my eyes were opened. Food bloggers are crazy! They’ll throw pumpkin in anything. I’m convinced that food bloggers look at the year in food seasons instead of traditional seasons. It’s not fall or autumn, people – it’s PUMPKIN SEASON. But I’m totally okay with that. I feel like the food blog world really outdid themselves this year with pumpkin, so I went a little crazy with my pinning as well.
