Brunch on a Wednesday: Making A Thousand Pots

Join me for Brunch on a Wednesday: the b&b biweekly and get this stuff straight to your inbox! I met with a client last week and one of my favorite stories came up during our b&b. A pottery teacher split her class in two. One half of the class was tasked…

Brunch on a Wednesday: On being treated like a person

We had Rus Garofalo of Brass Taxes on the b&b Bondfire Radio show a few weeks ago. He's an accountant who talked about accountant-type things, like what you could write off (and more importantly, not write off!), whether or not you should pay estimated taxes, all that good stuff. But…

Post-Detox Hangover & The Power of Habit

Last night, I broke Day 30 of Whole30 + my two week Money Detox by going to Joe's Shanghai and having soup dumplings. My boyfriend and I were in Chinatown and in a fit of oh-fuck-it, we went! I had exactly two soup dumplings (normally, I can eat all 8…

Spicy Cinnamon Curry – $1.98 per serving

Can I just say that sweet potatoes make everything better? Seriously. This was definitely a dish I made up based on what was left in my house before the next grocery store trip. I almost didn't make another curry because I didn't have any cauliflower to make "rice" with. Then…

Paleo Filipino Crockpot Adobo – $3.51 per serving

Comfort food. That is what I wanted when I googled "Paleo Filipino Adobo." Something familiar that felt like home. Of course, one of the main ingredients in Filipino Adobo is soy sauce. So I was even more curious to see how anyone pulled it off. Enter coconut aminos. Just like…

Savory Coconut Flakes – $.041 per serving

I'm just going to let the picture speak for itself in this case: I took the recipe from this Paleo recipe blog and actually followed it pretty close to the letter, except I doubled the batch. (Also don't pour hot coconut oil down a plastic bag. Learned that lesson the hard…

My Money Detox (so far)

I'm 22 days into my Whole30 challenge and have been having a blast tallying up the cost of my meals. This has definitely felt like more of a detox than a diet and not something I plan to sustain forever (in fact, the whole30 guys don't think you should do it…
