While searching for a way to make my favorite gluten-free brownies even better (which I admit – with the utmost humility – is a bit hard to do), I realized that I didn’t have any chocolate in my pantry. None. Nada. Nil. It’s very rare for me to be out of chocolate, even if it […]

What Is Meditation? Meditation is an ancient practice that has long-been steeped in tradition, mystery, and myth.

I’m a big fan of coffee cake. Don’t ask me why, but I really love the dense texture and its perfect balance of sweetness.

When I imagined my summer break this year, all I could think about was going to the beach, sipping iced tea, and catching up on my favorite classic films I’ve recorded throughout the semester.

I do believe Texas has skipped spring and has made it’s way toward summer. In an instant, a light switch turned to the “on” position, and the sun responded by beating down its warmth to full strength. Since it can only get warmer (we are still in April, after all), I knew I had to […]

Nice hands with french manicure on the notebook.
