Olga Berman  Food, travel, flowers, and the pursuit of finding beauty in all things big and small.

Short story titled "When dreams come true..."
I was just thinking how a warm chocolate chip cookie would be awesome...only to find two mini cookies in the freezer!!! I baked them, let them cool, and made a cookie sandwich with a scoop of @talenti pistachio gelato, which perfectly matches my tiny saucer. Winning.

My personal sunshine on a gloomy rainy Friday. Bought this miniature 🌻🌻🌻 plant at @wholefoods for $2.99!! 💛💛💛

Thanks @cupofjo for putting @sloane_crosley's essay collection on my radar. My favorite one was about the neighbors. The one that terrified me the most was about the website domains and what can happen when you forget to renew them. .
I love short stories and essay collections because they make it so easy to skip the ones that don't appeal to you for one reason or another.

Hanzo #eatburedo: yellowish tuna sashimi, avocado, cucumber, pickled fennel (💚💚💚), arugula, lemon aioli. .
So fresh and satisfying!!

Yesterday's hot and humid walk resulted in finding this beauty.

Finally visited the beautiful lobby of @theapollodc yesterday because 💛💛💛 @ihavethisthingwithfloors.

Such an enchanting evening of listening to @thetreevolution and @_juliaevans_ read at @solidstatedc! Thanks @nazilam for telling me about this new bookstore.

Dynamite roll, spicy tuna, and @angryorchard. Thanks @madalenemielke for telling me about this! Will be back to try more (especially spicy scallop).

In honor of my father who makes the best borsch, I made a cold version perfect for the summer. Beets. Potatoes. Yogurt. Cucumbers. Red onion. Dill. So refreshing!

When your own life seems less than bright, one of the best things to do is to help someone in need. So grateful to @sylvienfawley and @jazmingargoum for organizing a great volunteering cook and serve lunch at @nstreetvillagedc today and @jamie_bear and Joy for joining us. [Also grateful for 🍒🍒]

Cauliflower rice, defrosted @turshen meatballs, yogurt, olives, feta, and herbs. (To make cauliflower rice, separate the cauliflower into florets and pulse in batches in a blender. Easy!)

#tbt to family vacation on Whidbey Island.
HIGHLY recommend How To Set Yourself On Fire by @_juliaevans_. I finished the book yesterday and loved its intertwined story lines about imperfect people, love, loss, unpredictable friendships, hardships, and people just trying to make it through life. [For those in DC, the author will be discussing the book at @solidstatedc. Thanks @nazilam for telling me about this new bookstore!]
