peach basil salsa

Not going to lie, I’m a lazy cook. I do eat mostly organic but I’m totally okay with short cuts. I use canned fruit, instant rice, pre-cut veggies… and usually throw everything into one bowl for less dish washing…whatever works.

begin again

How are things? My things have finally completely been moved from the old and tiny townhouse to the old-but-new-to-me flip house. Remember when ‘flip’ was synonymous with ‘nightmare’? I do, it was before all those HGTV spin-offs showed us the good things about flipping and that not all flippers are scam artists. There’s not been…
