picnic food

I’ve been fortunate enough to have grown up and lived my life having a fairly healthy relationship with food. I love eating, love cooking, and basically get high off of having a really good meal. Who needs chemically-induced highs when I can have one just by having a great dinner? (Although I suppose a food […]


Normally, I like doing a nice reflection on the past year and really mulling over the things that came and went. However, I’ve been putting off this post long enough and if I keep dragging it out it’ll never get published so I’ve come up with another way to do a year-end review. They do […]
