I'm a Utah native living in Portland, Oregon. I have a fascination for construction cranes, advice columns, and bicycle spandex. I recently graduated law school, and look forward to navigating the waters of the legal profession.
You came, you read, you liked the blog (I hope), and now you're wondering "What's the deal with Bunsnip?"
Bunsnip is a word I coined when I couldn't remember the actual name for that delightful and hypnotic plaid-esque pattern also known as houndstooth.

This weekend we ran into a friend at the grocery store, and so obviously a photo was in order. The thing that cracks me up the most about this picture is how lovingly Ian is cradling that jar of pickles, as if it were our child. Hilarious. You might also note that we were caught pickle-handed in the candy aisle. Sugar addicts? Guilty. But lately we've been filling our sweet teeth with the sugar-free candy alternatives. Several of the bags over Ian's shoulder are laced with sugar alcohol instead of regular sugar. They have fewer calories and don't cause your blood sugar to spike and crash, but the texture tends to be slightly off and the flavor is often not quite right. So far, the candies closest to the original seem to be York Peppermint Patties, Andes Mints, and Lifesavers Mints (maybe mint candies have less sugar to begin with and are thus less changed?). The Dove chocolates also aren't bad, particularly the raspberry ones. If you eat enough of them, you begin to think the drier, waxier texture is normal. Twizzlers start out right, but end up leaving a funny aftertaste. Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are regrettably pasty and not recommended.
