A daily routine supercharged my work life. Here's how to build one that works for you. Routines sometimes get a bad rap as being mundane and limiting creativity — but I feel like the opposite can be true. In fact, building a morning routine saved my work life.

It is great for breakfast, brunch, or dessert. What do you do when your nice neighbors bring you over a huge bag of pears from their tree? First, you say thank you and then you make Easy Pear Sauce and Pear and Blue Cheese Flatbread. I love pear season! I thought those two recipes would use up all of the pears, but luckily I still had a few left so I made, Pear Almond Streusel Bread.

Pears are usually the back up singers during the fall. I love quick breads because they are easy to whip up. The cinnamon spiced bread is dotted with pears and covered with a sweet almond streusel topping. Celebrate fall and pears with this amazing Pear Almond Streusel Bread.

The Mushroom Hunters: Neil Gaiman’s Subversive Feminist Celebration of Science and the Human Hunger for Truth, in a Gorgeous Animated Short Film. Every year at The Universe in Verse — the charitable celebration of science through poetry I host each spring — we have the immense honor of an original poem composed for the occasion by one of the most beloved storytellers of our time: Neil Gaiman.

The Mushroom Hunters: Neil Gaiman’s Subversive Feminist Celebration of Science and the Human Hunger for Truth, in a Gorgeous Animated Short Film

At its heart is an imaginative antidote to women’s erasure from the selective collective memory we call history.
