Dear Friend,

Hello and Happy Halloween!

I have some news to share: I've moved! Not to a new house, but to a new blog. Firstly, I want to thank you, my readers, for sticking around here and reading my posts.

I've been thinking about this for a while now and it's just time for me to start fresh. So over the past couple of months I've been working on this new blog on the side and now I'm finally ready to share my new 'home' with you. It's called Dear Friend,. Similar content, just a little different. Take a look :)
If you'd like to continue keeping up with my posts, please update your subscriptions :)

Random things.

my intentions of coming home and doing homework after work have completely failed.
a friend posted "productivity level is basically nonexistent on fridays."
and the pretty much explains my work ethic today.
instead, i took random pictures around the house.

surprise from my brother: the best macarons i've ever tasted and they're even a day old!

happy friday!

Homemade Chipotle Bowl.

cilantro lime rice • tofu • black beans • corn • salsa • guacamole

april 2012.
my apologies for not sharing this until now!
last fall, i found this cilantro lime rice recipe on one of my favorite food blogs and thought it was perfect for making our own Chipotle bowls. and it is - just add your desired toppings and voilĂ  :)

cold weather and soup.

black beans • great northern beans • lentils
zucchini • kale • carrots • celery • onion • corn • tomato • potato

i love cold weather and soup - especially when it's made with beans and veggies like this 
and eaten on a long-awaited chilly day like today.
