My decision to stop drinking a few months has made me put my feelers out for exciting, tasty non-alcoholic beverages. There’s a lot on the market but unfortunately many of the drinks are super high in sugar. But then I discovered Hoplark’s Hoptea, a super tasty, refreshing, frizzy ice tea. Non-alcoholic. No sugar. No calories. Just tea. I am in love and won’t stop gushing about them. Hopefully I can convince my local deli and grocery stores to carry them, but until then, I order online.
I am currently on day 54 of trying to experience myself and my life sans alcohol. (My goal is 90 days!) What an interesting journey this is, experiencing myself without ever escaping with a drink. I feel a bit like an onion, slowly peeling layers off, discovering new feelings and sides of me I didn’t know existed.
If you have been on a similar journey, what are your go to non-alcoholic drinks when socializing with friends?
This simple porcelain lemon juicer was made in Hasami, a small town in Nagasaki Prefecture, known as the birthplace of fine Japanese ceramics. So simple. So beautiful.
These Reusable Zip Tops look really useful. Basically a more sturdy version of a Zip Loc bag but that stand up on their own and you can wash and reuse. I am here for it.
I gasped as I saw it sitting on the shelf!
I have a deeeeeep love for all things cauliflower.
I mean DEEEEP!
As I started flipping through the pages, I swooned at all the beautiful photographs and abundance of cauliflower recipes. Be still my heart!
You know that feeling, when a book finds you? This was one of those angelic choirs coming down kinda moment. Alright, I know I am being dramatic.
I love you cauliflower.

Thank you Tomoko Sato, I will never be able to look at an apple or a radish the same way again.
I love this cutting board, or Schneidebrett as the Germans call it. It comes with a “drawer” for your sliced and diced veggies.
I was invited for brunch at a friend’s house this past weekend and got introduced to Maple Cream. My life will never be the same. It’s as if a creamy honey and maple sirup had a baby. It’s a sweet, creamy, delicious spread. HEAVEN!
I discovered this beautifully designed ceramic pot set somewhere on the internet today. Consider me intrigued. These pots come in lovely colors and are made with naturally smooth ceramic, not toxic Teflon. Want!
Do you have any favorite recipes that you can make ahead, freeze, and it still tastes REALLY good when thawed & prepared?

This T-Shirt made laugh. (Also, I own a framed oil-painting of a stick of butter. Seriously.)
