Jelly and Jamming

JAM-featured

I think dieting is bullshit. I am under the belief that my body knows what it needs: I crave it. Then I eat it.

Things We Love: “FRENCH PRESS COFFEE”

COFFEE_FEATURED

Today is a snowy snow day. I thought….what better way to warm up then with a good ‘ol cup of Joe! Except making coffee in my house is not as simple as opening a new can of Maxwell House, but it’s a well worthwhile journey.

Curry Puff Pastries? Yes Please!

One night, after walking home in the icy cold rain, I came home to a lovely smell. My wonderful husband was already in the kitchen whipping up another fantastic dish. This one was so good, I had to share it with you all! He was making curry puff pastries with saffron rice and sweet chiliContinue Reading

The WHALE is Back

So, if you’ve been following our blog, you know the story of the infamous “Whale Hat.” If not, read: Whale of a tale before continuing. Brian and I went to the store last night to pick out some non-100% wool yarn, to make his new whale hat. (See, I learn – I am not evenContinue Reading

Yarn Balls and Christmas Joys

The bummer thing about living in an apartment is the lack of space for holiday decorations.  No place for a tree or even a place to store any decorations.  Last year, Brian and I hid Christmas presents from each other by putting them on the couch and covering them with a blanket – promising eachContinue Reading

Love that Hate Bread

Sometimes when things seem rough, people have different coping strategies. Some turn to food or chocolate, some hide away in bed in the dark, some go for a long run…and some bake while listening to very loud music. Welcome: Hate bread. My very good friend at work came in one afternoon with the most amazingContinue Reading

Easy Pumpkin Black Bean Chili

If you’ve read any of my food blogs on NonLinear Knitting before, then you know my HB, Brian, is the cook in our family. I love to bake but he took over making dinner about a month into dating. I know “how” to cook, but it always tastes better when he makes it.Continue Reading

I got 99 problems, but a Stitch ain’t one.

Along with the wonderful feelings the Holiday’s bring, they also bring the not so great: Stress, Dealines, Travel, Expenses…. This past month has been very stressful.  So much to the point, I can’t even BELIEVE that Christmas is one week away.  I’m actually in shock.  It’s so much to the point, that I have beenContinue Reading
