Chipotle Shiitake Tofu Bahn Mi

It’s been a while since I posted an explicit recipe post, but as I was going over things this weekend, for Tova & Wild, I realized the one thing that I miss most about eating animals was a good old-fashioned Bahn Mi. When I decided to go vegetarian, it wasn’t a decision that just cameContinue reading “Chipotle Shiitake Tofu Bahn Mi”

A Case Against Cheese

This story begins as most stories begin, sitting at a coffee shop, fiddling between the occasional notification on my iPhone, scrolling through Instagram feeds, and attempting to drink my coffee while it’s hot. Most of my stories begin with this same introduction, and yet, this one feels different. Why does it feel different you ask?Continue reading “A Case Against Cheese”

I Don’t Want to Subscribe to Instant Gratification Anymore.

I think the most difficult thing about being a writer is actually writing. For any writer, but mostly just myself, the task is something I thoroughly enjoy and loathe with my entire being. It’s like pulling teeth, literally—because the process is pain and torture, but in the end, it’s good because the pain goes awayContinue reading “I Don’t Want to Subscribe to Instant Gratification Anymore.”

How Does One Make Friends As An Adult?

The other day, I was hanging out with a good friend and she told me, “I need to introduce you to my friend. You two are so alike, you are going to love each other!” This exact scenario has happened to me several times, and each and every time it’s usually correct. I do loveContinue reading “How Does One Make Friends As An Adult?”

Hi ppl! How’s it going? Will you be my friend? No. That’s okay, I understand. Either way, I’m going to make October  Friendship Month because all my fake friends can ‘f’ off, it’s time to make way for the real ones in your life. The ride or dies, the go big or go home typeContinue reading “The Friendship Issue”

So You’ve Answered the Call, Now What?

September is wrapping up, literally, in like, two days, everything will be shut down and we will be fully embracing October like the basic bitches we all are, pumpkin spice latte in hand, trenchcoats for days. Or, if you’re like me, you’ll probably still be clinging onto the last moments of summer, wishing the daysContinue reading “So You’ve Answered the Call, Now What?”

Who Is Your Style Icon?

Recently, I’ve never wanted to raid someone’s closet as badly as I do Giotto Calendoli’s. He plays around with different textures, materials, characters and does it looking like the Olsen twins ended up staying in Rome, marrying his cousin, and influencing his personal style while smoking long stem cigarettes and dreaming of world domination. OnContinue reading “Who Is Your Style Icon?”

I Started Hang Drying My Herbs and Oh My God, Why Wasn’t I Doing This Earlier?

I have gone to the store a number of times to buy fresh herbs and have found myself throwing them out immediately after they wilt. Why, oh, why have I literally never thought of hang drying them? Not only is it the easiest thing in the world, but it also is like, hella beautiful andContinue reading “I Started Hang Drying My Herbs and Oh My God, Why Wasn’t I Doing This Earlier?”

Tell Me What You Want, What You Really, Really, Want.

I was listening to a podcast the other day about artists being honest with themselves and answering the question, ‘what do I want?’ At first, I was completely thrown off by the question because the host was talking about it in such a narrow way. He basically was saying, if you’re not working on yourContinue reading “Tell Me What You Want, What You Really, Really, Want.”

Self Discovery of A Newly Minted Hat Person

I‘ll admit, I have always been interested in hats. I loved wearing bucket hats when I was little and walking around in my Osh-Kosh overalls. I love a good fitted cap and letting my inner bro shine. I love baseball hats, and beanies, but what I love more than any other hat is a largeContinue reading “Self Discovery of A Newly Minted Hat Person”

Sage & Bay Potatoes

The other day Morgan and I were talking about how lucky we are that Austin is finally cooling down. By that I mean it literally has gone from 100 degrees on the daily, to like, 90 degrees. So, not that big of a difference, but honestly, it feels a million times better. The only problemContinue reading “Sage & Bay Potatoes”
