oh wait, I never eat bread.
Weeeell, it depends.

It's true, most of the time, I actually stay away from bread. Not 100% intentionally. It's just the way I eat. I rarely eat sandwiches – salads are my thing. If I eat bread, I want it to be good bread. Like Hungry Ghost deliciousness. The other day, my family and I had a sort of picnic in the sunroom. We ate stilton and 4 year cheddar cheese with Hungry Ghost 8-grain bread and amazing fig jam. Kady brought gooseberry jam, too. That went well with the slices of turkey. As much as I love cheese on bread, my other favorite way to eat bread is very simple: quality butter and rosemary. Oh my goodness, it is the best. I found a bunch of recipes for breads – some sweet, like banana bread (yum) – and would like you to check these babies out. Some food bloggers out there, man, they take mouth watering pictures. I need to stop going on their blogs as often as I do. 


walnut bread. Remind me why we all buy bread instead of make it at home?

This looks good. I've always been a fan of good, dense, moist banana nut bread

but if you're vegan (or not) this is the banana bread for you! (and me. not vegan, whatever)

orange blossom zucchini bread! whattt

I really want this bread to change my life too. It looks divine

French bread! Say no more. Let's make it

earl grey honey whiskey cake (bread) she put it in the 'bread' category, so there

seeded whole grain breakfast bread – now THIS you need to make!

Bunny 90s Delicious Luna Bar Sipp Ginger Blossom Bits & Pieces 4 Smith College Botanical Pasta Cacio e Pepe Toblerone Wilder House - Smith College Botanical Garden 2 Smith College

A little bunny in the 90s (me) // A little obsessed with Luna bars // trying new things // botanical garden at Smith // very unflattering picture of dinner I made - pasta cacio e pepe! // gigantic Toblerone bar I've yet to finish // silly pictures for outfit posts // botanical garden again

When was the last time I did a Bits & Pieces post? It seems like a long time ago... It's hard keeping track. I haven't really been taking out the old camera lately. It doesn't seem like there's much to photograph, and whenever I do, it's frustrating to take bad pictures (like that pasta picture. But I wanted to show you that sometimes the best meals are really simple! Parmesan and pepper... so good!) My days go by very quickly. It will be eleven at night and I will be wondering what the hell I did all day. Why is everything accelerating? Then there are those occasional days, like this past Monday, when it's 6PM and I'm counting the minutes until it's socially acceptable to go to bed. It was a weird day. I didn't want to do a thing. Just sleep. Weirdly enough, I ended up going for a long jog "because I had nothing better to do". Speaking of running, I think I'm getting better at it. I think I might even be enjoying it?? Let's hope so. Because when I get back to Paris, I'll be doing most of my exercise outside.

Eggs Benedict

amazing photo by my name is yeh - get recipe here!

If you're vegan, sorry. This post is not for you! Next one, don't worry. I actually love eggs. I'm not very adventurous though. My usual in the morning (when I'm home and not at Smith) is a two egg white omelet with cheddar and tomatoes. I also love when Smith has hard boiled eggs because I get rid of the yolk and mix the whites with cottage cheese and pepper... it's delicious. Eggs are really nutritious and healthy and amazing and I think we should all eat them and be adventurous together! Here...


you can eat it without being able to spell it... shakshuka with feta

this looks amazing! garlicky polenta with spinach and runny eggs

simplicity at its best: breakfast sandwich

poached eggs in red wine sauce... finally not a breakfast!

eggs with shaved brussell sprout salad sounds great

I never bake eggs! I see now that I should – baked egg w/ ricotta, thyme & chervil

and as a salad... asparagus, egg & bacon

garlicky saut̩ed greens with eggs РI like garlic?

seems heavy but kind of delicious? bacon, egg & leek risotto

I've poached one egg in my entire life – Poached egg and avocado toast

Any good recipes out there? What do you like? Have you tried any of these? If you have, let me know in your comments and I'll post a link to yours!

Who :: David Byrne & St Vincent 

These days I have very little music on my ipod because I've listened to everything on my computer a million times and I need new music... David Byrne & St Vincent are still on there though. They come and go (I don't want to get sick of the songs by over-listening to them in a short period of time) As is Thom Yorke's new album (perfect timing, Thom. Thank you, and I approve.) Thankfully Pandora is an amazing website and I have been listening to music and making a list of albums to get. Tom Waits is a big one, more Bob Dylan, some Edith Piaf, some Chopin. Need to get into some more Johnny Cash, Nick Cave, Talking Heads, Leonard Cohen, Miles Davis, Louis Armstrong, Chet Baker, Neil Young... any suggestions? I love when they appear on my Pandora stations.
