Many thanks to Mathew Quinata for trekking out into the snow to capture these images.
The past 3 days Portland has taken a snow day.
Being in school full time and working also has left me far behind in my project runway queue but I somehow manage to discover a new story! If you have access to comemdy central, check out Broad City.
Woo Hoo! These girls went from youtube web series to comedy central recently. This may be my new favorite show.

Super excited bout my new guitar! Now that I’ve got this in hand, I can book recording sessions to finish some tracks I’ve been working at Recursive Delete Studios.
Sorry it has been so long since I have updated. I have been quite busy with school. Without complaining too much about my university experience, I will say that I welcomed a coffee break between academic journal readings. To my surprise went to coffee in hood river.
We drove through the gorge and I am always so happy to do so. No matter how many times I drive through this area, I am full of joy. I consider all the wonderful places I have had the opportunity to experience. As I ponder, I decide that, for me, Oregon’s beauty is easily equal if not completely superior to much of the other places I have seen. This image hardly does it justice.
Working in the the Wellness retail arena, I often get questions about food, nutrition, and invariable someone occasionally puts me on the spot.
“So, what do YOU eat?” they ask.
I will be the first to admit to having a less than perfect Portland-esque beets and greens 9 times a day diet.
I often eat cookies. Sometimes two a day.
However, I try to get a little green in there. A recent road trip to Vancouver, BC gave us an opportunity to listen to Michael Pollan’s latest book: Cooked. Feeling inspired to be healthier and to hopefully save money, I’ve been experimenting.
Finally, I totally understand why people post pictures of their food. This post is dedicated to just that.
I made this!
Barley grass, apple juice, iced water, and whipped honey lattes
Thai basil, mint, lime, sesame seeds, and flank steak bento
Raspberry, peach, tomatoes, purple onion, and goat cheese salad with rosemary, lemon, butter, and garlic spiced lamb steak with bake potatoes
Homemade salsa verde enchiladas with refried beans (This dish probably doesn’t meet all of Mr Pollan’s criteria for actual cooking)
Happy cooking. Be well y’all.
