Cooking Project: Ramenish

Let me start by saying that this is not Ramen. This is a quick substitute for when you need something warming for your body and soul after working a long day or you’re not feeling well and you can’t invest hours of cooking time. Or if you’ve been trapped in the house due to the…

Be Kind To Yourself

Congratulations, you have made it through January -I hope it wasn’t too rough for you. In the risk of sounding really annoying, I actually thought this was one of the better Januarys I’ve ever had.  I’m trying to put my finger on exactly why: work was extremely busy,  I was flat broke and the weather…
