raw, sprouted, cinnamon almond milk — life’s good alright

  • 2 cups raw almonds
  • 3½ cups filtered water
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 Tbsp raw honey
  • 1½ tsp gluten-free vanilla extract
  • •••
  • simple tool:
  • 1 sheet of fine-weave cheesecloth, enough fabric to cover the mouth of a big bowl

This is my favorite recipe so far, honest as dirt.

sprouted alright


For those of you who also cook at home, I know there are considerable reasons for doing so — saving money, watching what goes into your food, catering to cravings — but ultimately, there’s the inherent satisfaction behind creating something from scratch.


Rhubarb in all its glory

rhubarb sweet iced tea, then vanilla-roasted with cherries — hello, brooklyn

  • rhubarb sweet tea
  • 8 pretty stalks of rhubarb
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 8 cups of water
  • honey to taste
  • dash of salt
  • •••
  • vanilla-roasted rhubarb
  • 4 pretty stalks of rhubarb
  • 2 cups of cherries
  • 1/4 cup water — or bourbon
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • handful of pistachios

So I moved to Brooklyn. It’s beautiful here.


Every corner has a crazy detail that draws you in, either to admire, inspire, or even laugh at. Bushwick Campus Farm on one end, bleach blonde punk in a kimono on the other, but in the middle you make it fit and appreciate it all. I accidentally crashed a Jewish wedding on our rooftop the other night, and walked through a 60 year old’s spraypainting session (she was very sweet about it). Gotta love the quirkiness. Some people are trying real hard, and some aren’t trying at all.



cantaloupe, fresh!

cantaloupe lime smoothie — quick fix for a ticket home

  • 1 medium cantaloupe
  • 1/2 lime’s juice (about 2 Tablespoons)
  • 1/3 cup of greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tsp minced ginger
  • 5 large ice cubes
  • 1 Tbsp honey

I have no idea why, but these wisps of summer heat here in New York have been making me crazy homesick! Maybe it was missing SXSW, or hearing of UT’s student rally against sweatshops, or reading tweets about breakfast tacos, but hot dang. I’m missin’ my home state.
