Recipes...

I've been making a bunch of yummy stuff lately so I thought I'd share.

These almond cookies are delicious. I usually use the pulp that comes out of making almond milk. So, usually that comes to about a 1.5 cups of almond pulp and then I add 1 cup of whole wheat flour. I also used gluten free flour once and it turned out yummy! No dry and crumbly like the usual gluten free.

The future of style is in the past


Yeah! That's me, wearing a slip! Anyone watch Feud?? The story of Joan Crawford and Bette Davis. It was a good series but what I loved most about it, was the fashion. I loved that Joan Crawford always wore a slip under her dresses. Well, yea, that makes sense. Wear the slip and you won't have to wash your dresses so often. Plus, I happen to feel that slips are so sexy! I'd like to ramp up my slip selections...now if I can just find some that are sustainably made.

Please don't grow up

My friend was over the other day. She has a 12 year-old. She shared how her daughter has gotten her period...and there's a boy in her class that she likes and he likes her. And this summer, his mom asked for their address and the boy sent her daughter a note and a bracelet!

Foodies

The babes announced a few weeks ago that she's vegetarian. And since then has really not eaten any meat...except for once when a friend put sausage in a dish. We are trying to be more conscious about our eating, for sure. But again, I'm not labeling ourselves. Since this decision, we hadn't seen one of our really good friends whom we often get together with to have dinner. Last night was the first night she and I were getting together and then a thought occurred to me, "Well, now how are we going to get together to eat?"

Pasta

The other day I got a hankering for pea pasta. Yea, pea pasta. Weird, right? Maybe, but I stumbled upon this delicious recipe from Cookie and Kate and not only was it yummy, it was eye-opening! How? Well, I have always tried to make simple pasta dishes, like pasta with maybe roasted tomatoes and some grated cheese...or some other plain noodle with a veggie or two and getting the pasta not to stick has always been confounding!

Kundalini yoga is my jam

Oh yes. I am a big fan of Kundalini Yoga. It is definitely what I've been searching for with yoga. I'd never been a big fan of yoga. Ever since I took a class and fell asleep at the end during shavasana. Mortified.

Road Trip

The babes and I just went on a road trip. We drove from LA into Sequoia National Forest, Kings Canyon, to be exact. This trip was sans daddy because he couldn't make it up until a day later. I have to be honest - I'm glad to have these long road trip moments without him because he's uncomfortable with silence. And I appreciate silence. I relish it. A lot happens when one allows silence to happen.
