The Canary


On our way up to our friends' wedding in Cambria this last weekend, we stayed in Santa Barbara for a night.  We searched for pet friendly hotels after our puppy-sitter fell through and luckily stumbled across the Canary Hotel.  The hotel is amazing!  One of my besties had her wedding reception here a few years back, which was even more fitting because we got to see her this trip with her new baby boy!  





good idea?


Do you ever have those moments when you just need to get rid of things in your fridge, so you come up with a meal that kind of scares you?  But you really need to eat those brussel sprouts and soy sausage patties before they go bad?  Well, that was me today, and I don't know if it's because I was expecting the worst or because I actually came up with a somewhat brilliant idea, but I have to say... my brussel sprout, garlic, and soy breakfast sausage stir fry dish actually satisfied my taste buds... even though I would have rather used bacon... real bacon.


pesto + goat cheese = ♥





Layers of pesto, sliced peppered turkey, mixed greens, onion, tomato, sprouts, garlic and herb goat cheese sandwiched in toasted garlic bread.

wish list


So when the day comes that I am ready to trade in my one-button electric rice cooker for the real deal, this is what I want.  So pretty!

I dream of one day being as crafty and coordinated as Martha Stewart.  I will make these cupcakes!  And I will eat them with glee!
