I do not claim to be a full-blooded vegetarian. But Cobalt and I do eat a lot of meatless meals for the following reasons: Omitting meat is more affordable. Vegetables and fruits have the best balance of nutrients a human needs: carbs, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals and fiber. The right combination of vegetables and fruits […]
Three years in — four if you’re counting this one — and I’m still not used to these Los Angeles winters. I just took an hour walk in sunny 70-degree weather whilst wearing shorts and a 3/4 sleeve t-shirt. Sitting at my desk, having just returned to my apartment, I feel a smidge sweaty and dehydrated. […]
Well, hello again! Apparently it’s been four months since I last wrote – little did I know that my summer job would take up so much of my time and that my habitual photography whilst cooking would dwindle! Needless to say, I am back! It will take a bit of time to readjust to documenting […]
Happy Thursday! What a great week it has been! My dear sister flew out to visit for the last week. Since she’s never been to Cali before so we spent nearly every day out and about, site-seeing Los Angeles. For the first few days, I showed her all of my favorite beaches: Santa Monica Pier, […]
Ever since moving to Los Angeles I’ve loved the fact that we live in an area of town where there are so many Asian restaurant options. Vietnamese Pho, Korean BBQ, Japanese, Philippino … so genuine and delicious! It has caused my and hubby’s restaurant-budget to increase a bit – but man, is it worth it! […]
It’s so interesting to live in Los Angeles this time of year. Back in Tennessee–where Cobalt and I moved from last October–it’s beginning to warm up from the winter season. But here the weather is the same it’s always been: sunny, warm in the day and cool at night. I can’t say I miss the […]
This dish for enchiladas is quite quick and only requires a minimum of ingredients (of course, you could always add more or modify to your liking!). Give it a go and send me pictures on Facebook or Instagram (at hope_omf)! Like it? Share it!
I have a lot of trouble eating vegetables. I know, I know. I have a Dietetics degree, so I should like vegetables, right? They’re all full of vitamins and minerals and yada, yada. Everyone knows that. But unless they’re cooked a certain way, I avoid vegetables like the plague. Personally, I have no idea how […]
Lately I’ve been obsessed with curry powder, adding it’s distinctive spicy flavors to soups and sauces. While usually curry is used in Indian and Southern Asian foods, I thought I’d add it to a dish completely different: lasagna! The creamy and spicy combination is remarkable! Like it? Share it!
Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday season. Cobalt and I didn’t visit our families on the East Coast this year but instead enjoyed quality time together at our new home in Los Angeles. We watched a lot of movies, enjoyed walks around our neighborhood, decorated Ginger Bread Houses (Cobalt […]
