Thank you and good night

Welp, after more than 200 posts and an infinite amount of oversharing about my personal life, it’s finally time to retire the blog. But in all seriousness, it’s been a slice and I’ll be forever grateful for your readership, love, and support. I’m not crying, you’re crying.

Buy the peeled garlic

As I’ve been feeling better, I’ve started to get back into the swing of things in the kitchen. I missed it, but I’m still being cautious with my energy. Instead of making elaborate meals from my collection of awesome cookbooks, I decided to do a mini vegan reset where all my shopping lists and recipes were…… Continue reading Buy the peeled garlic

You Spin Me Right Round

I’ve been a little … unbalanced lately. And I don’t mean this figuratively. I’ve been hanging out with my old friend vertigo for the past couple weeks, and let me tell you—that guy knows how to party. Vertigo is this weird thing that’s kind of hard to describe, but here’s my best shot. Remember the game…… Continue reading You Spin Me Right Round

Sales pitch

A friend of a friend added me on Facebook yesterday. Odd, but not unheard of. Then, as I explored her profile, I noticed a few odder things: It wasn’t a profile but a page set up to look like one, which she used primarily to re-share posts from her actual profile. The content—all shiny-happy-lifestyle-blogger stock…… Continue reading Sales pitch

A year in the life

It feels like I’ve hit some pretty big milestones in a few key areas lately. I get all nostalgic in the fall, and I can’t help but compare where I am now with where I was a year ago—and luckily I’ve got the receipts in handy blog form. For one, I was everyone’s favourite single storyteller. Still going…… Continue reading A year in the life

#StephNotChef

Since I left my second job at the orchard, I’ve found myself with some free time. I still manage to plan my way into filling some of it, but I’ve also been doing a lot more cooking. I’ve detailed my long journey from a girl who didn’t know what a clove of garlic was to someone reasonably…… Continue reading #StephNotChef

Best laid plans

Bogart likes to joke about how I’m a walking to-do list. Usually it’s after I’ve told him about something cool we should do, somewhere we should go, invited him to an event via Google Calendar, or sent him an actual to-do list of shit I want to get done around the apartment. So you know, the comment is…… Continue reading Best laid plans

The view from here

I’ve been giving a lot of thought to the blog lately. Or rather, why I haven’t been blogging lately. ‘What about the blog?’ everybody yelled in unison when I shacked up with Bogart. ‘Don’t you worry about that,’ I sassily retorted. ‘I’m still me, my interests haven’t changed, and more importantly, who I am isn’t…… Continue reading The view from here

Far from normal

I always wondered when it would happen, and it surprises me that it took this long: My online harasser found the blog. He may be reading this post. He may be digging through the archives for more ammunition to try to bait me with (favourite tactics include racist remarks, slut-shaming, and insults about my body,…… Continue reading Far from normal
