Random musings on happenings in my kitchen and my life, in Durham, NC

About me
Hi! I'm Lindsey.

I'm a health educator, like to run at a slow, but steady pace, teach group fitness classes, and do my best to keep up with my family that's spread across the country. In the midst all of that, playing in the kitchen is one of my favorite stress relievers and creative outlets, so this blog chronicles some of my favorite cooking and baking adventures, but in the process it also tells the story of the rest of my life.

Like many people in the Triangle area, I'm a transplant. After spending the first 21 years of my life in the midwest, I've been settled in North Carolina for seven years. One of the things I love most about the area is the diversity of local farms, farmers' markets, and great food, so I follow lots of local food happenings, but I also keep up with my fair share of Midwestern favorites.

If you like what you find here, feel free to drop me a note and email Yummy things. I'd love to hear from all of you out there!

Yeah, so it’s been three months since I last posted here. 

There was a long weekend for Easter.

We had Good Friday off and had fun playing with colored spaghetti with our friends, Kathi, Avery, Cori and Shea.

We dyed eggs (and made a mess and had a ball of a time) using shaving and food coloring.

And hunted for plastic eggs (which I swear are reproducing around our house) with good friends and their new babies.

I took a long weekend to go to Palm Springs for bachelorette festivities with Whitney. 

I didn’t really know what Palm Springs was like, but I discovered you can get to a totally different world in 8 hours when you fly to PSP without your kids!

It was a refreshing weekend with my lovely sisters and the craziest pool I’ve ever seen at a rental house in the desert!

I felt a little bad being away from my kiddos over Mother’s Day, but it was a perfect chance to soak up some humidity-free sun time, splash in the water and enjoy some good food.

Then there was a make-up Mother’s Day when I got back into town.

And over Memorial Day weekend, we orchestrated a little 10 year reunion with my public health classmates.

It was fun times with old friends, and even more fun to see all our kids have a blast with one another.


And all of that was before we embarked upon a 3 state summer vacation 2000 miles from home!  So there’s certainly more to come, but at least this is a start on catching up.
