locavore kyle?

July 9, 2011

Please forgive me for the sloppiness of this post… it hit my brain this morning like a lightning bolt and I sat down to write what I thought would be an intro… and out came the whole thing.  It’s been forever since I’ve gotten a post up on TGK, so my anxiety of allowing this [...]

health review (?)

January 8, 2011

Around the time I started this blog I posted about my New Years General Resolutions.  You can go back and re-read it if you so desire, but I can summarize it for you with ease- I wanted to be healthier.  I think I’ve achieved this.  Not to suggest that I’m a picture of health and [...]

way to go, wegmans

January 3, 2011

Since I started using Twitter (and yes, I recently protected my tweets… but I guarantee your requests to follow will be approved…) I’ll admit that a friend of mine and I have, on occasion, tweeted something to someone famous (or someone who we thought was cool but they certainly had no idea who we were) just [...]

30:30 and a local letdown

December 28, 2010

After spending the first half of this year in a fitness craze, I went in reverse for the second half.  Although the summer was filled with fun activities like kayaking, hiking, skiing and biking, since the turn of chillier weather I’ve gone all out on the two activities I’m best at- eating and drinking. And [...]

fortune cookie humor

August 9, 2010

I love fortune cookies.  I love the surprise, secret, suggestive nature of them.  I eat the cookie before reading my fortune because otherwise the fortune loses it’s cosmic sway.  When eating fortune cookies with a group of people I instruct them that they must do the same… then everyone must take a turn and read [...]

tuesday evening.

July 28, 2010

Decide last minute (while bored at work) to return to cottage for remainder of week, with brothers consent. Realize cat has been home cooped up alone since last Friday. Run home from work to pick up cat and obtain other necessities from house. Head towards Keuka Lake with cursory stop at Wegmans. Promise cat that [...]

food porn?

April 19, 2010

In the last week I have twice posted photos on Facebook of dinners I prepared for myself.  It’s not like they were anything amazing- a grilled steak salad and tabbouleh with grilled chicken- but something about them made me so excited and giddy that I had to take photos and share with my three hundred [...]

how’d i get so SMRT?

April 5, 2010

Grocery shopping to me is a hobby.  Maybe you could even call it a leisure activity.  Simply put, I love it.  List or no list, I can wander those aisles aimlessly for hours, any time of day, regardless of how busy the store is.  Wegmans has always been a fav of mine, and visiting my [...]

raw birthday cake

March 19, 2010

Imagining candles slowly being extinguished as they sink into the pan of uncooked cake batter?  Fearing the chance of salmonella from raw eggs?  Worry not, ye doubting folk. Ani Phyo’s Raspberry Ganache Fudge Cake was a stellar performer at my friend Ivanka’s birthday dinner the other night.  Not only did everyone love it, but she [...]

pineapple love crumble

March 2, 2010

There’s no point in hoping I’ll ever go completely raw in my diet- there are some things (like steak) that will always be on my plate that just don’t seem to fit with the “uncooked” idea.  (Yes, steak tartare is wonderful but I can’t make that for myself.  Get real.)  I really like trying out [...]

kitchen sink hummus *Updated*

February 25, 2010

I’ve been desperate to make hummus in my new food processor since the moment I arrived home with it.  I’ve had two recipes (both raw, vegan and gluten free) that I’ve tried previously, but discovered that making hummus in my mothers’ 1970-whatever blender is a bad idea… it makes sad noises, takes forever and the [...]
