Earlier this summer, a post-bacc friend and I got to talking about yoga (hot yoga in particular), and she mentioned that she’d found a new studio here in D.C..

Brown Rice, Sweet Potato, and Lentils with Hemp Seeds

As you have probably noted, one of my favorite things about being in DC this year is having proximity to my friend Anne. I adore our dinners and chats for so many reasons: first, because we share so many interests (how many food bloggers do I know who also used to be editors?), second, because […]
