Coconut Rice with Mango Salsa

I haven’t posted a recipe in so long… I’m hoping this one makes up for that! I’ve been making this dish for over a year now and everyone loves it! Whether you’re feeding a crowd or just two, this dish is perfect for those summer nights out by the pool. Who doesn’t love a good, juicy mango? Well, if you’re one of those people who can’t resist them, this recipe is for you! Coconut rice? Oh yes. And it’s not as tricky as it sounds either, I promise. I’m not going to talk much more about this one, the recipe will speak for itself… Continue reading “Coconut Rice with Mango Salsa”

What You Didn’t See

 

People ask me all the time about my dad. People ask me all the time what it’s like to grow up with a single mom. I don’t blame them for being curious, how could I? It’s human nature… we all want to know everything. What I don’t appreciate is the pity. I don’t need it and I don’t want it, so don’t give it to me. I’ve learned that that’s not an easy request to fill… I can see it in your eyes when the topic comes up. But it’s ok. I get that it’s hard to not look at me differently once you know.

The bucket-list for creative living

I don’t usually do these kinds of things, make lists to follow. I’m more of a go with the flow type of person, but I feel like this is a very go with the flow list. Nothing has a deadline (well, I guess sometime in September…) nothing has to be turned in for a grade. It’s not for you. It’s not because someone told me to do this. It’s for me. Because I want to do this. Maybe you’ll join me.  Continue reading “The bucket-list for creative living”

Grey’s Anatomy 13.24 Episode Review

Season 13, episode 24: Ring of Fire (Written by Stacy McKee)

First off, I want to say thank you to Jerrika for breathing life into such a complex, strong, badass character for the past five years. We will all miss you and Stephanie Edwards. And Stacy, what a beautiful ending you gave her. (More on this later!!) I have said it every time and I’ll say it again: every time I see your name as writer, I know I’m about to have one hell of an hour, and this one did not disappoint.

Grey’s Anatomy 13.23 Episode Review

Well, my European adventure is over and that means it’s time for real life! First up is this post because I know you’re all antsy for it to be posted.

Season 13, episode 23: True Colors (Written by William Harper)

“There are moments when all the stars align, when everything seems as it should be. Your life seems to have sorted itself out. It’s not like all our problems go away, it’s just that the problems are suddenly manageable. You feel so good you wonder if it’s real, and if I’ve learned anything, I can tell you, it is. It’s very real… but it will not last.” -Meredith Grey

Grey’s Anatomy 13.22 Episode Review

Season 13, episode 22: Leave It Inside (Written by Elisabeth Finch)

As soon as this episode started, I knew people would have some intense reactions. Why? Because the first thing we see is Meredith hauling the tumor on the wall out of her bedroom. That’s sacred MerDer property right there… it’s big. If that right there doesn’t set the scene for Meredith in this episode, I don’t know what does.
