I didn’t mean t’do it but I just can’t help myself … comfort food has been callin’ me, big time. And there’s no better thing than a warm, creamy, cheezy sauce to make your belly all snuggly, am I right or am I right? 😉 I really do think that it’s smiling right now, this […]

Isn’t star anise so pretty? Confession: When I used it purely for decoration this time, after I finished eating I washed it and dried it and kept it for later. Is that bad? I mean come on, could you really toss this cute little thing into the garbage can after breakfast? I didn’t think so. […]

Meet “Oscar.” As is so often the case, the story of how he came into the world is both about painting and about life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What else is new, right? 😉 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The theme is letting go and making space. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Art (and life) is about choosing the things that are important (or beloved) and […]

So I promised you guys some healthy comfort food, right? This is so warming and creamy, it’s like a fluffy blanket for your soul! 🙂 This recipe is based on a dish made by one of my favorite vegan comfort food chefs, Lauren Toyota of Hot for Food. Her meals are rich and full of […]

This was painted a few years ago, inspired by a friend’s visit to the Galapagos Islands and her fascination with the sea turtles she saw there. My paintings almost always come with a story or a theme. This one is about all of those times when we feel there is so much undone … and […]

Have y’heard about sweet potato toast? Yeah, me too. Well I just had to find out what all’a the hullabaloo was about. After all, something as healthy and eeeeeeeeasy as that would be right up my alley, right? Oh yes! When I saw people posting yaays and naays, the biggest naay was not “it doesn’t work” […]

This recipe was semi inspired by Super Jed Kobernucz. What I mean is … If it were *fully* inspired by that guy it would be, well … bacon. Or it would at *least* be made from stuff that’s already in his pantry. But this time I temporarily don’t care 😉 and here’s why: Jed told […]
