If I loved a woman…
Sometimes you look at her and you know, she is the one who hangs the moon and has the power to destroy your world, because you gave her all the secrets. But you love her and want to make a life with her. Why does that have to be so hard?
Women are complex, gentle, and even a little bit dangerous. They have this way of being so complicated that nothing makes sense, and yet…
I think I will write you letters
the rest of your life, and I will
see your face in every dot I
erase. Your words will be in my
eraser bits, little wholes that I
am still trying to find.
These are five poems from a set called “Floral Arrangements: because you never bought me flowers.” Each poem is titled after a different flower based on the flower’s meaning and the…

Short stories are often some of the best books because you really get right to the point. Some writers are really good at writing short stories because they know how to give the characters depth at the same time they are bringing the story to a peak.
Funny Once was a little misleading to me, mainly because it really is not funny, not…

Vegan with a Vengeance is one of my favorite vegan cookbooks. It is my first reach when I want to make something new and fantastic. The recipes are fast, easy, and don’t ask me to go searching through exotic markets to find the right ingredients.

August… I love it and dread it at the same time. It isn’t just about knowing that it is the end of getting a few minutes more sleep during the weekday, it’s about change and moving forward.

I think I will write you letters
the rest of your life. And they
will become the undernourished

I love using butternut squash. It has a great versatile texture and the flavors are mild enough that you can transform it from sweet to savory with little effort. This recipe is a little different from your Mexican style enchilada recipe because it has a Indian flair to it. I hope you enjoy! Ingredients
1 medium butternut squash (1 1/2 lbs.) peeled, seeded and cut into chunks ( frozen also…
