Welcome to Two Birds, One Scone! 

Welcome! You have arrived at Two Birds, One Scone, an environmental conservation blog that tells the story of one woman's struggle to conserve in a world that encourages convenience and materialism. My aim is to rediscover and cultivate my connection to nature while hopefully inspiring a similar journey in you! 


This blog's title comes from a saying I love: "feeding two birds with one scone". It's a play off a more familiar phrase, of course, "killing two birds with one stone". Feeding two birds with one scone better fits my intended purpose of this blog, which is to do the most good with what I have. Resources for aiding the environment are scarce and so this blog will focus on small things we can do in our everyday lives that can make positive impacts on our environment. 







Above is a picture I took of one of my favorite places in nature: the coast of Oregon. I promise that the rainbow is real! Every time I visit this beautiful place, I feel a connection to both the ocean and Earth as a whole. Visiting this beautiful place reminds me to be grateful for all of the many benefits the earth gives us, including the opportunity to glimpse its beauty.  


Thank you again for visiting Two Birds, One Scone! Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments you may have!

I think we can all agree that these are strange times we're living in (to say the least). Those of us who are privileged enough to stay home in quarantine might be starting to get a little antsy. I know I am! I've cleaned the house within an inch of its life, I've caug...

Today's Meatless Monday is inspired by an unbelievably good Moroccan chickpea sandwich wrap that my friend and muse Mia had last week! I found this recipe for a similarly yummy-looking Moroccan chickpea salad that could be easily turned into a wrap with the edition of,...

Fall is the best time of the year! I will not entertain any arguments to the contrary. I try to embody the season all year round but I particularly thrive in October. What isn't there to love about Halloween? 

 However, it's important that the excitement for the se...

My new favorite discovery when it comes to food are copycat recipes! If you're unfamiliar, copycat recipes are recipes that tell home chefs how to make their favorite restaurant meals at home! I featured a copycat recipe for Chipotle's corn salsa a while back. Today's...

Who doesn't love macaroni and cheese? It's my favorite food, even though I'll say mutter paneer is my favorite food if I'm trying to sound classy (I absolutely love mutter paneer but sometimes you just need the comfort of a bowl of noodles and cheese, right?). This wee...

Today's recipe is a vegan take on a classic summer time treat (it's still technically summer, right?). It's Dole Whip! I love the flavor of pineapple but I don't like the texture so this recipe is perfect for my picky-eater self. You can find the recipe here. Enjoy and...

Today's Meatless Monday is sweet and easy! I'll be making sugar cookies for a friend today and I'm going to be using the recipe you can find here! Sugar cookies can be tricky to make because they need to hold the shape of whatever cookie cutter you're using but this re...
