Taking a hiatus

Lisa

Hello friends. Lately it has been a chore for me to post. There was a time not to long ago when I was bursting with ideas and recipes that I couldn’t wait to share. Now other things are on my mind so I am taking a short break from blogging. I know we are in…

Pairing wine with food when you don’t eat meat

Amazing wine

I love wine, it’s a huge part of my life. It’s the one part of my foodie past that I never want to let go of, it’s too important to me. Drinking and talking about wine is a huge part of what my husband and I do as a couple and with our friends. What…

Random meals

Hummus

I’ve had a slow start to Vegan MoFo, hopefully I’ll pick up steam as the month goes on. I’m eating vegan this whole month, which is not a huge departure from my regular diet. I eat vegan most of the time anyway.  I had a few days in the beginning of the month where I…

Unintentional Hiatus

Dear friends it’s been a long time since I’ve posted here. I’ve missed writing and posting new recipes I just need some time off from blogging. I hope to get back on track soon, in the mean time keep drinking green juice. XO

A day in Austin and a memorial service

This past Monday I attended a memorial service for a colleague of mine who lost his battle with cancer last Thursday. He was a talented gilder, artist and a mentor to many. He will be missed. It was a sad occasion but the service was a beautiful celebration of his life filled with music and…

Tamales, fake snow and a Tuna Christmas

Saturday my family and I went to Pearl Brewery for the inaugural Tamales at Pearl. Tamales are very important to the people of San Antonio, so I wasn’t at all surprised to find that a huge crowd of people showed up. It was a beautiful day; sunny, cool and breezy. I love winter in San…

It’s not easy living with a bunch of omnivores

Yesterday when my son came home from school he couldn’t wait to tell me all about this boys club he started with some of his friends from school. I’m very familiar with these. He loves to create clubs that are just for boys and by the end of the day he always asks me if…

I’m not a vegan

Yes, I know it’s World Go Vegan Week and I should be touting the benefits of a vegan lifestyle and there are many. For today I want to talk about why I’m not ready to call myself a vegan yet. This past summer I decided to give up eating fish, at that point the only…

Beginnings and endings

garage roof

Hello friends, hope everyone is having a great Tuesday. Our garage remodel is progressing and will hopefully be done before the holidays. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about beginnings and endings as I prepare to leave my studio space. Sometimes we need to completely end a chapter of our lives before we are ready…
