I am getting too adventurous for my own good.

This weekend, I stayed in an AirBNB………………..while the owners were home. *GASP*

Garr & I went to Portland for the weekend. I put him in charge of finding our shelter. When will I learn?

He finds this place. He’s really jazzed. Shows me pix & is all, “It’s only like $90!” My only request when partaking in this archaic form of overnight stay is to have the place to myself. I do not want to run into Mrs. Gladstone as I’m headed to tinkle. Not happening. He’s all, “Yeah, we definitely have the place to ourselves.” Please take a guess as to whether he was correct.

Did I mention it was a basement?



P.S. The owners were the sweetest people ever & the basement apartment was super chic and remodeled. 5 stars. I am a drama queen for the sake of drama. Love me.




Time: 2 hours (prep + cooking) | Serves: 4


  • 4-5 zucchini squash, sliced in thin ribbons
  • 1 jar of your favie marinara sauce
  • 3 cups of raw almonds
  • 2-3 tbsp. of nutritional yeast
  • 1/2 cup of fresh basil, plus more for serving
  • 1 tsp. of dried oregano

How to:

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees
  • In a food processor, pulse almonds until very fine
  • Add nutritional yeast + basil + oregano + crushed red pepper + lemon juice + S+P
  • Process on low + add in olive oil
  • Process until well combined
  • Pour some marinara in the bottom of a baking dish
  • Add a layer of zucchini noodles
  • Spread some of the almond cheese – it’s not super spready so I crumbled + flattened it!
  • Repeat until all zucchini is used
  • Cover + bake for 45 minutes
  • Remove cover + bake another 15 minutes
  • Serve hot with fresh basil or parsley
  • Scoop up handful + rub generously on face + let the almond crumble exfoliate your pores

    Sounds like something T would do. When I book a airbnb, sometimes the owners being down the street is too close!

    Love what you did with the almond paste in this dish! Looks good, Rach!

    A friend of mine told me last month that he went to Tory Island in the North West of Ireland. Himself and his girlfriend. They stayed in a “B&B”. To find out later that in order to go to the bathroom from their room, they would have to go through the owners’ bedroom… Who were also there… The last ferry had left, it must have been quite a long night! 😀
