gwendolyn faith is not a crayon.

Hello, I’m Gwen.

I work in advertising. I play in the kitchen.

I’m part tweenager. (Look at my iTunes playlist.)

I’m part Grandma. (Look at my oversize cardi collection.)

I’m part Romy or Michelle. (Look at the height of my hair.)

As a Christian, I'm learning how to glorify God in the everyday. To live into the status quo, like Jesus' own Manchurian candidate, and seep grace through its cracks.

I wish my life were a musical, but other than that, I’m pretty content.

(No surprise I also like to Yelp.)

Don’t salads taste better chopped?! I made Portillo’s Chopped Salad with a homemade version of California Pizza Kitchen’s Vinaigrette for lunch. (I think Portillo’s dressing is on the sweet side; I’ll add a dab of brown sugar or honey to the dressing before I make the salad again.) Thanks for sharing the recipe, Steph!

I poached the chicken, baked the bacon and cooked the pasta all at once, but I’ll chop a single serving of the other ingredients each time I make the salad. Yes, a little time-consuming — but I swear hand-shredded lettuce doesn’t taste as good.
