Easy Chicken Soup

In college, I really only ate at two establishments outside of the dining hall (when sober). One was a “healthier” fast casual restaurant called B.GOOD that provided me with my daily salad or turkey burger and shockingly delicious oven fries. The other was a soup chain called Boston Chowder Co. Boston Chowder was located inside…

Simple Sausage and White Bean Soup

I regret to inform you that last week, Chateau Logena was struck by the man flu plague. It was gross. I can’t really complain because honestly, we were due. Neither Logan nor I have been really good and sick for a long time, and since we’ve both been exhausted and traveling a lot, it was…

My Favorite Hair Products

Fun fact: I’ve been obsessed with hair for as long as I can remember. My hair, other people’s hair, bobs, waist-length locks…I’m deeply fascinated by hair and the endless ways you can style it. As a kid, my mom used to blow-dry my hair on the reg because I loved it so much—she was definitely…

Stir-Fried Shrimp Lettuce Wraps with Grapefruit and Avocado

Whelp, it’s still winter. Snow is gently falling in NYC, and I’m currently watching people scurry along the street below in their finest Arctic ensembles. Not gonna lie, I’m dreading venturing into the tundra this afternoon. I’m generally not a winter hater. In fact, I love me some winter. As I’ve discussed at length before,…

Waldorf-ish Salad

A couple of weeks ago, I spent 48 glorious hours in Las Vegas for my best friend’s bachelorette. It feels impossible that I’ve failed to mention this before, but just in case… I’m a Vegas person. For whatever reason, I was lucky enough to go to Vegas with my family several times as a child.…

2019 Valentine’s Day Gift Guide

Personally, I’ve always loved Valentine’s Day. I have my mom to thank for this—she always threw my siblings and me what was basically a Mad Hatter’s tea party and made the day feel exciting and special—but I also just think a “holiday” dedicated to celebrating love is…NICE. (Valentine’s Day haters, you are entitled to your…

Nighttime Skincare Routine Update

Few people love skincare products as much as this weird blog lady. I’m shamelessly addicted to the pursuit of youthful, glowy skin, and if my mother’s any indication, I probably always will be. It appears to be genetic. I’m constantly testing new products, but I’ve settled into a pretty consistent evening routine over the past…

Roasted Cauliflower and Farro Salad with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Everyone’s talking about Marie Kondo’s Tidying Up show on Netflix. I haven’t seen it. And honestly, I probably never will. I haven’t even finished re-watching all of Dawson’s Creek yet (still have 2 more seasons to go…I’m committed), and I simply don’t have enough time. I’m very busy and important. That’s the party line. The…

My Favorite Food and Drink Brands

As someone who spends more time cooking than not, I run through my fridge and pantry staples at a rapid clip. Over the years, I’ve experimented with countless brands of everything from olive oil to tequila, and while I’ll always continue to test new thangs (you know I live to guinea pig in all areas…

Sheet Pan Salmon with Charred Broccoli, Oranges, and Asian Dressing

I hope you’re excited for some serious oversharing today, friends, because we’re continuing Domesticate Me’s favorite annual tradition of emptying the nets!! For those who don’t know, “emptying the nets” is the cathartic exercise of writing out the year’s highs and lows in order to celebrate the positives and let the negatives float off into…

The 5-Day Reset

As we’ve discussed at length many times before, the wellness world goes batshit crazy come January 1. There are cleanses and products coming at you from every direction, and it’s easy to become swept up in the madness. Don’t get me wrong, I fully support New Year’s resolutions, general goal setting, and giving yourself a…

The Reset Salad

Greetings, friends!! Weird blog lady checking in from across the pond. I am severely jet-lagged but also extremely chuffed to be holed up in a cozy cabin in the English countryside for the next few days with my book. And a fancy claw-footed tub. And my roommate, obviously. (On an unrelated note, I’ve had two…

Winter Skincare Favorites

I enjoy many aspects of winter. After all, Christmas, knitwear, cozy comfort food, and cocooning are some of my all-time favorite things. Not to mention the fact that winter is drunk bath season. Joy of joys! With that said, my skin does not love winter. In fact, it HATES it. As I’ve mentioned many times before,…

Butternut Squash Flatbread with Sausage and Caramelized Onions

My roommate and I typically throw two big annual shindigs: Cinco de Mayo and Logena Christmas. I love them both dearly—and it feels wrong to pick a favorite—but if we’re being honest, I’ve always sliiightly preferred the holiday celebration. Not only does it let me tap into my inner Buddy the Elf, but it also…

As I’ve mentioned many times before, Gift Guide Week brings me an insane amount of joy, but today’s guide was particularly fun for me to put together.

2018 Holiday Gift Guide for Domestic Gods and Goddesses

The holidays are upon us, friends!!! I’m currently staring at my to-be-decorated Christmas tree, listening to Mariah Carey Christmas in shorts (because the handle on my radiator fell off and is now perpetually set to “tropical”), and feeling very excited about the next few weeks. I fall distinctly into the Buddy the Elf category of…

Thanksgiving Quinoa Bake

Tomorrow’s the big day, people!! How you feeling? Strong? Medium? Hot mess?! If you’re anything like your weird blog lady, you may be mildly crazed right now, but don’t worry. We’re gonna crush. I know it. A little pep talk for my nervous cooks/hosts: Breathe. Everything doesn’t need to be perfect—people are just grateful that…

My Favorite Medium Trashy Books

I’ve always been a big reader. As much as I love TV, and I love it a lot, a good book will always be my favorite form of entertainment. (FYI, fellow anxious peeps, reading is great for managing anxiety!!) I enjoy the occasional literary classic or purely education tome, sure, but in general, I prefer…

Three Cheese Pumpkin Mac with Pancetta and Sage

Like I’ve said many times before, my Thanksgiving menu is traditional/non-negotiable, and I wouldn’t dream of including the outrageously delicious Three Cheese Pumpkin Mac with Pancetta and Sage on your screen. But things aren’t always about ME (shocker), especially when it comes to T-Day sides, and dreaming up an annual offering is as important a…

My Best Thanksgiving Recipes

T-14 days people. Thanksgiving is my favorite non-present holiday, and I am downright giddy with anticipation right now. I live for this meal. Fun Fact: My family used to have a second full Thanksgiving dinner every July when I was a kid just because I love it so much. I’m big on tradition and nostalgia, so…
