Poached Eggs in Spicy Mexican-Style Tomato Sauce

Since it’s still Birthday Week, I’m exercising my prerogative to eat all of my favorite foods. While I’ve already hit up sandwiches, some things barbecue, Doritos (seriously, my love) and all the ice cream (we’re working on 2x a day at this point- thank God […]

Peaches & Cream Tart

Peaches & Cream Tart

Today’s my birthday! #Thisis36 I’ll admit that it’s not ideal that it fell on a Monday because Mondays…are kind of the worst on a regular day, let alone a birthday.  Luckily, this weekend was relaxing in the best possibly way, and I spent yesterday floating […]

Sunday Somethings

Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday. After a week of back to normal life, and half a weekend so far to recover, I’m starting to feel like myself.  The Chicagogrammers’ party went off last weekend without a hitch and that, too, is back to a reasonable pace. I had […]

A Late Summer Soup

A Late Summer Soup

July, you left me tired. All good things, but the going-going-gone has come to an end, and I’m looking at August and the rest of the summer through a more relaxed lens.  And frankly, I’m over the moon about it. I had a whirlwind weekend in […]

The Breakfast Club

The Breakfast Club

Good Friday morning!   Let’s have some coffee, shall we?  Grab a bowl of cereal while you’re at it because it’s time to step back and catch up. As you can tell, cooking has been…not a thing in my house. I’ve had nothing to share […]

Sunday Somethings

Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday. Biscuit is here, and we’ve got donuts and ice cream and live music and all the good things happening. I’ve been mentally running like crazy while physically running not at all, and it’s all starting to build up thanks to Chicagogrammers, which is […]

Sunday Somethings

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 […]

Sunday Somethings

Sunday Somethings

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 […]


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. […]
