Bailey’s Irish Cream Chocolate Tart
Ready for a sneak peek of what I’ve been working on lately? Well, besides 9,825,032,982,509 grad school assignments and this Bailey’s Irish Cream Chocolate Tart?
Before I show you, I need to remind you that I’m the least crafty person in the universe. I know you probably think it’s you. “I set my blouse on fire with a hot glue gun,” you may be thinking. But trust me: it’s me.
That’s why I’m SO PROUD of (more…)
Spiked Coffee Cake with Bailey’s Irish Cream
OKAY I HAVE A THEORY. We’ve been speaking to one another face to face for years. Long enough for social evolution to teach us to wait a hot minute before opening our mouths. We teach this to our children as they develop self-control: you probably shouldn’t say everything you think.
Sometimes we think things that aren’t true — or that we aren’t sure are true. Sometimes we think things that are true, but aren’t helpful or necessary (“I told you so,” anyone?).

This is the second story in the I Changed My Mind series, where I’m sharing stories of times I changed my mind about significant beliefs in order to model vulnerability and nuance, something I think is lacking in our public discourse right now. Hop back to the series introduction to read about what inspired this collection! Or read I Changed My Mind Story #1.
I hope you’ll join me in the comments to share stories of when you changed your mind. As a reminder, this is a series to prompt one another to be vulnerable, be sincere, and listen — not to argue or debate. So, when have you changed your mind?

Quick & Easy Vegetarian Taco Pockets
HIII TACO TUESDAY! I’ve been so psyched to develop this recipe for vegetarian taco pockets. We haven’t been able to enjoy our old recipe for taco pockets now that Mike is pescatarian. And it was the perfect opportunity to use Green Giant’s new Riced Cauliflower & Sweet Potato.
I riced cauliflower on my own once, and it’s easy but the mess in my food processor and countertops has steered me away from doing it again. I don’t have time to deal with all of that while I’m in grad school (with no dishwasher, wahh!) this year, so I’m all about easy recipes right now.
