My camera’s memory card has felt like a deeply neglected laundry basket. Overflowing, and the further I dig back, the less and less I remember what’s in there. I won’t even tell you how old some of these pictures are, I was never a dates and number person anyway, just know that these are some [...]
Last night, Georgia and I went to the restaurant Vedge, which just opened in Center City. The owner/chefs of Vedge had another restaurant that I regrettably never made it to before its closing over the summer, and I was determined not to make the same mistake twice. The entire menu here is vegan.
Our meal [...]
So lately I’ve been finding myself putzing around the kitchen more often than usual. I made my first (!) apple pie a few nights ago, and it was consumed in record time, leaving me no time for documentation. Last night, I decided to a small pizza for Kathryn and myself. To my dismay, the bell [...]
My friends hosted a Thanksgiving themed dinner last night. Some of the dishes served included: a lemon & rosemary roasted chicken, couscous with almonds, two casseroles, coconut rice, sweet potato/chickpea/peanut stew, butternut squash soup, butternut squash risotto, several salads, two macaroni and cheeses, homemade pizza, collard greens, and at least five desserts!

I like food photography because it takes an [...]
My friend Zeolite bore 5+ hours of traffic to come to Philly for the weekend. On her way over, she found out that she was selected for a 2-week arts residency in Helsinki this summer! We took Hugo for a walk, and celebrated afterwards at the tapas bar Valanni.
He is so loving [...]
Every morning, I miraculously get the coffee machine to start brewing before I can blink my eyes fully open. I eat a bowl of steel cut oats with berries and nuts, the kinds of berries and nuts being the only variables. Sometimes I’ll have toast; other times, I’m too lazy to toast the bread. The [...]
I wanted to get my roommate some macarons yesterday. The pastry shop usually has many to choose from, but there were only three kinds. I got one of each.
(Pistachio, chocolate & mixed berry)
Kathryn & I took advantage of the warm weather last night & went out for dinner instead of staying in. We tried a Korean restaurant pretty close to home. It was her first Korean meal! Everything was delicious, and the portions enormous.
On the way home she bought some flowers [...]
