For the past three weeks, morning, noon, and night, I have been obsessively eating watermelon. For dinner the other day I made myself a Watermelon and Feta Salad. With a side of guacamole because, guacamole.
Crumbled Feta Cheese
It’s pretty straightforward. Since my watermelon is already pre-cut I usually do two scoops of watermelon chunks. About 10-15 chunks, depending on how large or small you cut your watermelon. Before I add the basil and mint, I like […]
My friend had scored a great dress at an estate sale. Unfortunately, the dress had random stain spots that wouldn’t budge. She had asked my to dye the bottom portion of it. I dip dyed it with madder root. First, I prepared the dress by using vinegar as a mordant. You mordant your fabric to help the dye stick. Different mordants can be used for different fibers. That is a whole other post. I didn’t […]
Sometimes I go overboard and buy more fruit and veggies than the household can handle. A few mangoes were getting pretty ripe and I can only make so many smoothies. I baked some salmon, lightly seasoned with sea salt and pepper and topped it with a Mango and Avocado Salsa: avocado, mango, tomatoes, olive oil, chopped garlic, and cilantro. Served it over a bed of quinoa with roasted corn on the side.

I am still adding things (and will continuosly) so for now there are only a few things. If you are local, you can catch me at Soda City this month on the 6th and […]
Sunday Night I headed to the Nickelodeon to see Cotton Road. I was really interested in seeing this as I try to continue to practice ethical fashion. I won’t go too much into detail about the movie (Because you need to see it for yourself!) but I will talk about what stuck out the most to me. In past conversations I have heard people get upset about items being made in China (or other countries). This […]
Last week was all about food but I have still been making. Right now I’m turning this:
To make this:
I wasn’t happy with how the second one was looking so I’ve been (sadly) doing a lot of this as well:
More to come.
I have been on a frittata kick and wanted to switch up how I made my eggs. I do love baking my eggs in avocados but unfortunately there is not enough space to stuff in all the ingredients I like to add. So I found some extra large bell peppers and made some Pepper Cups (makes four):
In my mix:
2 large bell peppers
4 Eggs (I used four)
1/2 large tomato chopped
Handful of spinach roughly chopped
Handful of kale […]
