Judgment without Jealousy (Rainbow Rice Rolls Recipe)

We, as the human race, are naturally a very envious bunch.
In fact, sometimes, if I feel like.... We compliment others with envy. And in doing so, rob the love that we deserve for ourselves, and lump it onto an ideal that we will never achieve.


Not sure if I'm fully making sense here yet... But read on, because ^those^ RAINBOW RICE ROLLS are headed your way.

I Love My Mother (Mother's Day Recipe)

There was a big confession today. I uploaded my story, and the sole purpose was because I wanted to help others. If offers hope, an ability of empathy, or awareness / a sense of what it's like to even ONE person... It was worth it.


And even though the story may seem like it targets my mother as the cause of my struggle, please understand that my mother was also my way out. I love her, and I wanted to share a special Mother's Day recipe dedicated to her.

"Mother, Did You Know?" : My Story of Disordered Eating

“Mother, Did You Know?”


Mother. Did you know?
I knew this was high school. And I knew this was a new school. Before the light-filled apple dropped in Times Square, New York, I asked you with plagues of doubt if you would give me money were I to fix my body.
To be honest, I don’t think you understood the hate that would fill me when you said yes.
We settled on a lump sum of two hundred dollars for me to dump these twenty pounds.
There was so much that I started with: cutting this, cutting those, slowly cutting the skin off of my frame so that I could re-stitch an ideal body.


But Mother, did you know?
You once told me I was fat. You once told me I was ugly. You don’t remember, because to you they were just insignificant pieces in your repertoire of blunt remarks. To me, they were a little deeper. A snag on my self-esteem with a jagged piece of demolition that started to fester into a deeper rot of hate.

Cinco de Mayo Tribute : Victory Over Opinions {Black Bean Hummus Dip Recipe}

This is my Cinco de Mayo Plate. It's ironic how Americans are so into commodifying any excuse to celebrate and blow out so much that we just might celebrate it more than the Hispanics.


But I just wanted to give my tidbit of thought about another kind of battle won, inspired by the Mexican victory at the Battle of Puebla. The Battle of Mattering Opinions.

Restless Heart Syndrome {Strawberry Sorbet Sundae Recipe}

Yeah, I know it's a Green Day song. (They are creative genius GOALS, btw.)
And yeah, I have a hot pink sundae for you that is the color of a heart when it yearns. (Possibly not scientifically accurate.)


But does anyone else feel like me, sometimes?
I am deathly afraid of my life being normal.
