It’s been a while since I posted a recipe, and I’m easing back into the swing of things with something super simple: a smoothie. My post-bacc friends used to tease me that they could tell I had an exam looming if I started posting more smoothie recipes than usual, but I promise that this one […]

So the other day on Twitter, one of my readers asked me if I would be up for doing some “WIAW” posts. I responded that WIAW isn’t my jam—I think you all could guess some of my reasons—and she asked if I might be at least willing to post some breakfast posts, along with my […]
