Last of the Summer Soups

It has been a strange year so far. Work made me insane through the spring, then the BF and I took a trip to Japan to visit a childhood friend. As soon as we returned, my mother passed away. And since then, the summer has moved quickly and yet slowly. Now, the rains have come […]

Addicted To Hash (It’s Not What It Sounds Like!)

Hi. My name is Leah. And I’m addicted to hash. Nooooooo, not the kind you get in Amsterdam. The kind you eat. Wait, that came out wrong.

Bye Bye American Election Pie

IMAG0677

Election night is exciting for me like the way the SuperBowl is exciting for others. The BFF is really into politics (“junkie” doesn’t begin to come close to explaining his fervor) so watching election coverage is made all the more enthralling when a 34-year-old man is jumping up and down, skipping in and out of […]

Travel By Taste

087

Everyone needs friends who like to travel. Everyone. Especially if you’re like me and always have a bad case of wanderlust. It’s hard to believe that I only just got my passport a year or so ago. And a bigger shame that I used it for the first (and only!) time about six months ago. […]

Insert Zucchini Joke Here

db3ab8bcf7cc40349069763185a6014e_7

Now that is a zucchini. It’s massive, I know. You can make jokes about how it compares to the BF’s, um, arm, which is pretty much all I did when I pulled it from the garden. Typically I like to pluck the zucchini when they are small as I tend to think they taste better […]
