One Quiche is Nice, But Two Quiches are Divine

January 8, 2020

I had the opportunity to make brunch the other day, and I immediately thought of quiche. But I couldn’t decide what kind of quiche to make… so I upped the ante, and made two quiches. TWO FREAKIN’ QUICHES!

Here’s how I made them: Read the rest of this entry »


I Don’t Always Bring My Lunch From Home… Sometimes I Purchase Healthy Meals, Too

November 18, 2019

Earlier this fall, I published a post with all the lunches I brought from home during the course of a week. I still bring my lunch to work an awful lot, but sometimes I don’t, just due to lack of time or forgetfulness.

Five Weekdays. Five Healthy Lunches, All Brought From Home.

It’s now been over two months since I’ve started my new job, and it’s been going great. This office job is a lot different than working from home, but, generally speaking, I’ve adapted to it well.

Broken Glass

August 4, 2012

I arrived home from work last night and was greeted by a little present. It was a gift that I had left for myself, and, since leaving it in the morning, I had completely forgotten about it. The present was… a mess.

Colorado Biking

May 28, 2012

Today’s the day that I’m running the BolderBOULDER 10K (or, depending on when you read this, I may have already run it)! I’ll post a recap soon, but for now, I wanted to share a few other things I’ve been doing in Colorado.

On Saturday, I went biking for the first time since last September, and my second time in about a decade (read about my September experience, and my history with biking, here). I went with my sister Sarah and her friend Karen. Here’s Sarah and I before leaving:
