Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday. We’re weekending over here like champs. Laziness combined with a good ole fashioned country music festival. Me and Tomato, doin’ what we do. That just means that things are going to be a little spares here on THB. Too much street cart food, […]

Karnabeet: A Cauliflower-Tahini Salad

Karnabeet: A Cauliflower-Tahini Salad

I’m getting a bit of a taste of my old social life these days with a few things dotting each week day eve and guests each weekend for the next few. It’s all fun stuff, but it means that all too often I’m reverting back […]

Hello, Sunday. It’s been a lovely weekend here with Grape paying me a visit, the first guest to visit the Buddha Bungalow. It’s weird how much you don’t realize how much you miss someone that you used to see literally every day (we used to […]

Palmiers

Palmiers

(A lot of) years ago when I was in law school, a group of classmates and I hit up all the EU hotspots on a ten-day trip right before Christmas. As Lettuce and I, roommates for the trip, entered our hotel room, we were greeted […]

Vodka-Rosemary Barbecue Sauce

Vodka-Rosemary Barbecue Sauce

Did I ever tell you that barbecue is one of my favorite things ever? Well, it is, mostly because it involves meat, usually some sort of fried potato thing and also some bread of sorts. All my loves, rolled into one. I don’t much make […]

Hello, Sunday. Well, this short week really screwed with my head. I woke up Wednesday to go to work, forgot it was Wednesday and found myself sort of scrambling all day! Then, I guess knowing it was just a three day week, those three days […]

Brown Sugar Pound Cake

Brown Sugar Pound Cake

One of my favorite things to do when I go home is to page through Mom’s old, decrepit recipe box.  I don’t do it more than maybe once a year, but sometime I’ll go home and she’ll need something from it and I’ll find myself looking […]

Burmese Iced Tea

Burmese Iced Tea

I hope you all of you stateside enjoyed your long weekend that wasn’t really a long weekend, I, too, had to work on Monday, but I think I made up for it sufficiently my other three days and I’ve got the tan to prove it. […]

Hello, Sunday. Well, we’re at the halfway point for summer. How are you doing on your bucket list? Did you have one? I did not, but I think I’ve done an okay job of taking advantage of June. July and August, here I come. Crawley […]

Nanaimo Bars

Nanaimo Bars

Canada, this one’s for you. Tomorrow, ICYDK, is Canada Day! And, being half Canadian myself, I like to commemorate the day with a little themed treat (see this Maple Walnut Dip and this Bacon Infused Caramel Coffee Sauce). This year, Nanaimo bars, which I always […]


Oh, The Places You'll Go

See the World: A Day in Delft

See the World: A Day in Delft

I hope you enjoyed our little walk through the tulips.  I’m still having a hard time deciding which picture to enlarge and frame (because, how could I not?).  What do you think? Anyway, continuing with our travel tale, we left our bikes in Edam and […]

See the World: Our Dutch Tulip Trip

See the World: Our Dutch Tulip Trip

After I don’t know how many years of getting bypassed on the trip wish list, The Tulip Trip actually happened! For years, Lettuce, Tomato and I talked about repeating our Oktoberfest2010 biking Bavaria through the tulip fields of Holland, but boyfriends and jobs, and hiking […]

See the World: Toronto Layover

See the World: Toronto Layover

Trip recovery is hard, and I made it harder with a quick day trip to Chicago on Sunday because I really know to go get over jet lag. With an 8-hour round trip road trip, obviously. Getting back into the swing of not having the […]

Eat the World: Chicago

Eat the World: Chicago

Chicago is a great city for so many reasons, but I think it really stands out on dining. It’s the reason that I left 10 or so more pounds (let’s be real, 15) heavier than when I arrived. Some of it is no doubt age.  […]

See the World: Québec City

See the World: Québec City

Hello!  Let’s take a walk through Québec, shall we? Mushroom and I decided to spend a couple days away from Montreal, and so really early one morning we took the three hour train, and ended up in what only can be described as a fairy tale. […]
