Ecuacomida {y una receta}

Ecuacomida {y una receta}

¡Saludos del Ecuador! I’ve been down here for just over a month and am getting ready to wrap up my ecuatiempo this next week in order to move on to the Peruvian part of my adventure. Mientras tanto, I figured I could share some ecuacomida that I’ve been indulging in. The great thing about just … Continue reading

A Week of Lasts {beet hummus}

A Week of Lasts {beet hummus}

Right now I am in a pretty nutty transition period. The past nine months have been a whirlwind of moving towards some major life changes—I’m starting grad school this fall, and the road to get there has been long (and at times, trying).

Summer {esquites-stuffed grilled peppers}

It’s no secret that I love Mexican food. After I spent a year abroad in Ecuador, the only thing I wanted when I arrived a haggard mess to SFO was to get to Picante before they closed for the night. I could probably eat Mexican food every day, but not just tacos or quesadillas or … Continue reading
