Posts about healthy eating, sustainable eating and my very own carefully crafted recipes.

It's... finally... HERE!!! You may now be asking, "What in tarnations are you so excited about?" Why it's my first recipe, of course. A healthy veggie stir fry recipe, to be exact. When I redesigned Of Houses and Trees about a year ago, I was faced with a major life decision. I'm talking should-I-buy-the-regular-or-the-eco-concious-but-expensive-toilet-paper major. The question: Do I start blogging about food and posting my recipes? I wrote about this conundrum in my inaugural "Real Life Food" post, but essentially I didn't want to further saturate the already soggy mess that is online recipe sharing.
Don't get me wrong. While I mean "soggy mess" in the most kindhearted and least disgusting way possible, there are just so very many recipes on the internet, ranging from "yum!" to "not bad..." to "are these cookies or dog biscuits and do I even care?" So who am I to add to the smorgasbord?Click here to read full post...

I have been feverishly working away on a new design for my blog (and I'm not being metaphorical about the fever as I have been sick, sick, sick). After debating long and hard over the course of this little blog's life (three years and three months to be exact), I've finally decided to include a section on my new site where I can share recipes and write posts on food topics I'm passionate about (so, basically, everything – as I love all the foods).
The reason I hesitated for so long over including recipes and such on this blog is because it seems like the interwebs is absolutely dripping with recipes. Seriously, it’s like food and porn and that’s it.
Then I started thinking – many of my own recipes were initially inspired by something I found online. I may have heavily adapted them to my specific likings, but where would I be without the initial inspirations and the people who took the time to share them?Click here to read full post...
If you're looking for my older posts (or just trying to navigate away from this site and over to Pinterest... you know, where the real magic happens) they are currently still hanging out on my old Blogger site. After much trial and error, it turns out the best way to import my previous posts to my new site is to do so manually. As in reconstructing them one at a time. Good thing I wasn't a very prolific poster in those days as it is time consuming work! So the old posts will be gradually moseying their way over to their new home on the new and improved Of Houses and Trees site, but in the meantime try and drop by to say hello – even blog posts get lonely in their old age.
