Five Lasagna hacks plus the Best Lasagna Ever

May 11th, 2017 Posted by Food No Comment yet

There are things I know, things I can count on. They comfort me in a time when there is a lot of uncertainty (Becoming a mom! Owning a business! Politics!) And while I’ve gotten pretty comfortable with uncertainty, I have a long way to go before The Great Unknown and I are best buds. That’s the catch 22, isn’t it? Nothing in life is certain, but we long for some stability and routine in our lives. When I make this lasagna, I know, I just know that it will be good. I know that it will make a sh*t ton of food, and I know that the results will be well worth the effort.

Design Trends: Thirsty Script and Book Design

April 18th, 2017 Posted by Design, Typography No Comment yet

I’m always at my local library, and I love checking out the “what’s new” on the the non-fiction book shelf when you walk in.
