(Beef) Noodle Bowl

Dusted off the old cookbook and tested this recipe out. It’s a good one. I didn’t realize I was supposed to marinate the meat beforehand until I had already prepped all the vegetables. I was too far along in the rest of the recipe – and hungry – and impatient – so didn’t marinate for […]

Paris 101

Often, the hardest part of starting something is deciding where to begin. I can’t count the number of times I thought about which entry should be my first – how do you even begin to choose with so many diverse trips under your belt? I was kicking the can down the road when an impromptu […]
