  • Lemon Dill Hummus
    For my book club this week, I made Lemon Dill Hummus. I used to dislike dill. Or maybe I never really ate dill except for dill pickles, which I hate, so I thought I also hated dill the herb. Lately, it turns out I really love it. I love tzatziki (although I make mine without […]
  • Galápagos videos
    Here are a few videos from my trip. These videos somehow didn’t make it into any of my other posts.
