Epic Meal Or Epic Fail

Sometimes, a recipe just calls to you. Yet, you may be too busy or even reluctant to heed its call. Perhaps, the ingredients seem a little too off the wall, yet the intuitive part of your cooking soul knows that they would taste heavenly together.

I run into these situations a lot. However, I have learned over the years to follow my culinary instincts because they generally lead to yummy meals.

I started created meals with lavash bread back in 2009. It was on sale at Trader Joe's and it looked interesting enough. What transpired shortly thereafter consisted of thin crust pizzas being baked in my toaster oven with 2  light brush strokes of marinara sauce, a bit of grapeseed oil, chopped shallots and topped with prosciutto. I also managed to use lavash bread for breakfast burritos and quesadillas.

Alas, lavash bread has let me down a time or two. For example, it has a nasty habit of burning easily and becoming too crunchy to consume. Fortunately, it only took me a couple of mishaps with a too hot oven for me to realize this.

I am willing to cook just about anything once because each time I am successful, it adds another meal to my repertoire.

Divatosity: Writer's Nook Envy

I am in the process of creating a Writer's Nook for my townhouse. This task is so  Gen X/hipstery that I feel a little sheepish about even blogging about it. Yet, it must be mentioned because this simple task has turned into a huge undertaking.

My new townhouse has a spacious basement which upon first glance seemed like a great place to set up an office and a workshop. Setting up the work table and supplies went pretty smoothly.

However, the drafty basement has proved to be a not so great location for my writer's nook. Also, it is a windowless space which after awhile made me feel as though I was in some sort of lock down situation.

So, I moved my writer's nook upstairs and this space is definitely more conducive for working. Though, my makeshift printer tables pushed together a long with the dining room chair screams "first apartment out of college chic".

At age 41, I would like to move past that decor and into something a lot more sophisticated.

Alas, cash flo…

Lots Of Irons In My Fire...

The past few months have been hectic in a good way. Years of personal growth, soul searching, and planning have come to fruition. Though, everything is not completely in place yet. I am definitely moving in the right direction.

I know this because the obstacles which were firmly in my way before seem to be stepping aside for me. The Universe seems to have given its blessing to this more evolved path that I am walking. Of course, this is not to say that there will not be challenges along the way.

But, I have learned over the years how not to allow challenges to become permanent barriers. Challenges are meant to guide us in the right direction. Unfortunately,they can occur without prior warning and despite having a solid contingency plan in place. Been there. Done that.

It has only been within the past few years that I have truly learned to embrace the wisdom which can come from challenges and unforeseen delays. A few years ago, several challenges swept into my life and seemed to take …
