First Playlist! Libra//October 2017

I'm going to try putting out a playlist each month, directly reflecting the tunes that are carrying me through my work days in the apothecary. During my teens and most of my 20's, my entire life revolved around music and all my friends were musicians, so my taste is rather eclectic and I have no shame in mixing some classics in with some newer stuff. I hope you enjoy listening to this list! But more importantly, I hope you find some artists to love, or kick up some old memories from songs filed away.  Special shoutout to my friends Allie Moss,...

Rosh Hashana (Jewish New Year) Feast with Recipes

Rosh Hashana (Jewish New Year) Feast with Recipes

Since I grew up in an ultra-Orthodox Jewish household, this autumnal part of the year has always been full of meaning. There's a chill in the air, the leaves are changing colors, and along with the fresh-ness of new school supplies and a new school year, also arrived the Jewish high holidays. Rosh Hashana is the Jewish New Year, and it's a couple of days full of prayer, blessings, and meals inundated with symbolism and ritual. Now that I have my own beautiful home and I'm cultivating my own beautiful community, it makes me so excited to host a meal...

Dear 15-Year-Old-Who-I-Hope-Just-Wasn't-Thinking: A Photographic Retrospective about the Columbia River Gorge

Dear 15-year-old-who-I-hope-just-wasn’t-thinking, I want to tell you about a place that I visited one December afternoon in 2012. You were only ten-years-old then, but I was about to turn twenty-six and pretty much in the middle of a quarter-life crisis. I was trying to figure out where in this vast country I would finally settle down and plant some roots. It was cold and rainy in the forest, but I barely noticed. I was fixated on the ancient moss-covered trees that went up as far as the eye could see toward the sky. They seemed to hug me with their colossal presence....

Eat a Lot of Peaches...

Eat a Lot of Peaches...

Our friends recently brought over a tray of freshly picked peaches. They said they were the kind of peaches their mom approved of (she grew up on a peach farm)- the kind that peels right off the pit and is juicy, perfect goodness. I had high hopes for these peaches in the creative cuisine way, and they sure delivered. And while some friends suggested things like ceviche and salsa, I needed to use these like yesterday (literally), so this is what I came up with!  Peach Lassi This recipe is for 1 lassi:2 fresh peaches, pitted8 oz. full fat greek...
