  • First Post at the Primal Challenge: Sausage, Spinach, and Tomato Frittata

    I had my first post today over at the Primal Challenge. I met Bob and Antonie, two of the people who started the site, at the FEE mansion this summer. After they graciously linked to a few of my posts, they invited me to contribute! I will post recipes and thoughts on living primally in […]

  • Homemade Primal Kits

    A few days after I started the primal challenge, I was on the look-out for a quick snack idea that could double as a light lunch. I saw that a few websites recommend Paleo Kits from Steve’s Original, so I ordered a sample pack of Steve’s products to give them a try. I was a […]

  • Eggplant Dish

    Strobist info: Canon 430EX in a shoot-through umbrella camera right on 1/4 power. Fired via a Cactus V5 trigger.

I took a stroll through the Irvington Farmer’s Market that meets every […]

  • Zucchini “Pasta”

    First off, I apologize for the low quality cell phone photo. I was pressed for time tonight and didn’t bring my rig out like I usually do. As I wrote about in the last post, I am taking the 30-day Primal Challenge, so no grains or processed sugars for me for the rest of the […]

  • Chicken and Spinach Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms

    Strobist info: I tried the Strobist method of using the ceiling as a light mod in this shot. Canon 430EX at 1/2 power bounced off of the ceiling. Fired via a Cactus V5 trigger. I’ve been doing quite a bit on diet and nutrition this summer and last Sunday I decided to take the 30 […]

We used a recipe from AllRecipes.com: Shortbread 2 cups butter 1 cup packed brown sugar 4 1/2 cups all-purpose flour […]

  • At Semester’s End, or Home, Relaxation, and Cookies

    After a semester-long hiatus away from my blog, I am back. My papers are turned in and so are my finals, so now I am home for Christmas break. I’ve been enjoying the many comforts of home, including the small things: the wind chimes outside, the fireplace, the smell of wood fire smoke outside in […]

  • Day 357 – Hummus

    As promised, I made hummus today. (Among other things, that is. I slept in, went out to lunch and shopping with Amanda, visited the Amherst Schools tech guys, ate dinner with my parents, made hummus, then wrapped presents with the help of my Dad.) My friend Dom came over to make hummus with me, as […]
