Wondering why I started this blog? As a multi-passionate creative, I used to be plagued by the idea that success meant choosing one thing and sticking with it. The problem was choosing just “one thing” left me unable to show up in the world as my most authentic, full self. One day I woke up and decided to finally embrace and share all of my gifts. My next thought: I should start a blog as a space for my passions to play. Needless to say, I never looked back.

The probiotic rich kefir used in this recipe makes it a winner for gut health, and adds an extra creamy texture. Did I mention it only takes 5 minutes to make?

In my previous post, The Only Houseplant You’ll Ever Need, I explained why I feel the Pothos plant is one of the most versatile plants for your home. If you still need convincing, check out that post here. One of the reasons I absolutely love the Pothos plant is the potential for creating beautiful aquatic […]

Last weekend I went to a macramé workshop hosted by an artist named Esmé whom I only knew of through Instagram. I had been admiring her beautiful work and when I heard that she would be hosting a workshop, I thanked my lucky stars that we live in the same city and signed up. I arrived at her […]

Starting Joi-Knows-How has taught me many things, but one of the most valuable lessons I’ve learned so far is how to look at a photo of myself and see past my flaws.

What would it mean to seek moments of “elevation” throughout our lives?

I am convinced this is the only houseplant you’ll ever need (all others are optional).

During this sweltering season, it’s important to have healthy snacks on hand that you can make without breaking a sweat. Here are a few of my faves (all of which just happen to be vegan!).

This week I’m reflecting on the intersection between opportunity and fear.

P.R.I.M.E is a recipe for better home cooking that I hope will give you the confidence you need to feel good in the kitchen.

An essay about my relationship with food, spanning from childhood to the present.

I can often be found lounging on the couch with a drink in one hand and an open cookbook in the other, reading the recipes cover to cover like articles in a magazine. This page offers a quick reference guide for a few of my favorites.

My favorite uses for recycled glass jars from fridge and pantry condiments.

This template goes hand in hand with my How to: Plan a Menu for the Week post. It is designed to take some of the guesswork out of menu-planning, making your weeknight meal plans easier.

Whether you’ve tried to plan a menu before and failed, think the idea sounds too daunting, or you’ve been wanting to plan a menu but are not sure where to start, I will show you how.

What if I could accept my many interests and embrace those things that I know how to do well, without forcing myself to be an expert at any one thing?
