Recently Chloe and I created an ingenious and sophisticated soirée concept called… *Drum roll please* Pancakes and Disney Movies. It’s exactly what you think it is. Getting together and eating yummy, vegan pancakes with maple syrup, berry-chia compote, and… watching Disney movies. Call us un-deep and un-philosophical if you wish, but… sometimes you’ve been working ...

It turns out mosquitos like Norwegian-Americans. I know this because I currently look like I have the chicken pox. None of my companions in French Guiana had more than two bites, whereas I had two nearly every square inch.

(It’s time to admit that I have a slight sock ...

It’s been difficult not to be a hermit lately. What with the massive monsooning going on in Paris at the moment… And the Seine overflowing and all… It’s enough to make you want to do a “sit-in” protest… …at home. And just, like…. bake, read, and do Steffy Yoga. One does what one must during a deluge. No, no, ...

Let’s all just agree that February falooo by. Yesterday it was, like, Christmas, and now all of a sudden we’re marching. February was a big month for Chloe and me. We semi-launched Veggie Magnifique in French (Had you noticed? 😉 Not every article has been translated for the moment, but we’re adding more articles en français every ...

I have a penchant for planners. Every year come November my little heart beats wildly at the thought of picking out my new companion for the year. Because that’s what it is, really. I mean… I take this thing everywhere. In it I write down all my appointments, thoughts, birthdays, plans, dreams … you name it, ...
