Why I Quit My Six Figure Job

Why I Quit My Six Figure Job

Last week, a Hare Krishna stopped me on the street. I love Hare Krishnas! They run my favorite vegetarian restaurant and sometimes, if I’m lucky, I’ll pass by a few of them chanting with a harmonium in the pedestrian street downtown. One of my most cherished flea market finds is a 70s vinyl record of the Hare Krishna mantra. So I chatted for …{full post}

Recipe: Vegetarian Pitas with Grilled Halloumi

Vegetarian Halloumi Wrap

I love to grill, but how many veggie kebabs and burgers can one (vegetarian) girl endure? One of my favorite things to grill this summer is halloumi, a semi-hard cheese from Cyprus that has a high melting point and can be fried or grilled. This vegetarian pita sandwich with halloumi is a riff on one …{full post}

5 years & a bit… I’m finally European!

Denmark Permanent Residence Permit

Well, sort of. Marrying Robert has given me the gift of permanent residency in Denmark, and it’s transferrable to other countries! I’ve got a golden ticket to knock around Europe for the rest of my life :-) My initial visas had an expiration date and were tied to a specific job, so if I’d changed jobs, I’d have …{full post}

No Mayo Pasta Salad Recipe

No Mayo Pasta Salad Recipe

July 4th and Thanksgiving are my homesick holidays. The clear start to summer and the Christmas season that those holidays represented is missing now. I feel so left out over here in Denmark… I wish I could be home in New England, having an American barbecue, watching fireworks, and joining the rest of my country in a long …{full post}

Giveaway: MealEnders Signaling Lozenges

MealEnders Discount Code

As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve just spent a week on a cruise ship eating and drinking with reckless abandon. MealEnders could not have contacted me at a better time to ask if I’d try, and review their signaling lozenges. I lost 40 or so pounds in my 20s and have maintained it ever since with a …{full post}

Vegetarian Greek Pita Recipe

Vegetarian Greek Pita Recipe

What a fabulous cruise we had, but it seemed like all we did was eat and drink!  We’d just finish breakfast and it was time for lunch, then cocktails, then dinner, and more cocktails. I’m a pretty strict vegetarian (right down to the vitamin D & B12 deficiencies) and I really watch my diet and …{full post}

Making another run…

Norwegian fjords cruise from Copenhagen

A few years ago, I took a Norwegian fjords cruise from Copenhagen on a tight budget… e.g. I smuggled booze onboard and stayed in an inside cabin. The experience kind of sucked, but the landscapes were the most beautiful natural scenery I’ve ever caught sight of, and I’ve wanted a do-over in a balcony cabin ever since… …{full post}

The day we paid off our mortgage…

Ruinart Champagne

We live in a country with one of the highest household debt to income ratios in the world, but the other day, Robert and I made the final deposit against our mortgage, and became 100% debt free! This is the second mortgage I’ve paid off, and it feels pretty much the same as it did the first time… …{full post}
