Miso-Curry Yaki Udon

28 August 2014
Miso-Curry Udon

A few Nerdy Finds ago, I told you about my addiction to noodles. Sadly, I haven’t had noodles in quite some time, so I decided to make some! This Miso-Curry Yaki Udon was inspired by Caroline’s (of Pickled Plum) Yaki Udon with Dashi Butter recipe I mentioned a few weeks ago.

This was really simple to make and only took about 20 minutes to prepare. I eyeballed everything (and the end result was a party in my mouth), so I’m going to give you the benefit of the doubt and allow you to do the same. (Experimenting is fun!)

Without further ado, here’s the recipe.

This weekend, I had the opportunity of embarking on the WeWork Summer Camp trip to Lake Raquette in the Adirondacks. Before I continue, and to give you a bit of background, WeWork is a coworking space based in NYC, with a various locations around the country and the world, including London, Washington, DC, and Seattle. They’re home to quite a few amazing companies, such as RentHackr, The Dating Ring, HandyBook, and Honest Cooking.

Needless to say, I was surrounded by quite a few incredibly success and down-to-earth individuals with a strong passion for what they’re doing.

Finding Happiness

24 August 2014
Finding Happiness

Many of us look for happiness…but what is happiness, anyway? In honor of National Happiness Month (yes, that’s a real thing), I wanted to write about happiness and what it means to me. I’d also love to learn more about what it means to you.

Let’s begin with a definition:

hap·pi·ness noun \ˈha-pē-nəs\

: the state of being happy
: an experience that makes you happy

The definition seems simple enough, right? And if it’s easy to define, we shouldn’t have trouble finding it, right? That’s where things get a little sticky and confused.
