Baby, it’s cold outside. Entirely too cold for my liking. I’m a warm weather kinda gal, and if you visit this blog frequently you probably already know that. Temperatures have been dancing around the freezing mark for the past few days and I think that is just too cold for November… Or, well, ever! But […]
I’m super pumped to be sharing this post for SO many reasons. But the biggest one might be that OUR KITCHEN IS ALMOST FINISHED!! I’m waiting until it’s all said and done to post photos of the whole shebang, you know, for a BIG REVEAL. I’m going to do it up right, with before and […]
This past weekend we took a little trip down to one of my favorite cities and ate ALL of the food. Literally, all of it. New Orleans is like the geographical incarnation of Too Full for School. I’ve been uncomfortably full for the past 4 days straight, and its been glorious.
“You are what you eat.” This saying always got on my nerves. If it were true, then I would be a walking talking tomato, with slices of pizza for arms, a scoop of ice cream for a head and cookies for feet. But nope, I’m 100% human. And for the record, while I do love a […]
HEY! IT’S FALL. Have you heard? If you haven’t, then it’s safe to assume you’ve been living under a rock. It always happens like this. I wake up one day, and summer is gone. Like, totally, completely gone. A distant memory. Almost as if it never existed in the first place.

Emma’s blog focuses on what she calls “food with roots,” and recently she started a brilliant campaign called #5days5ways, where she highlights one ingredient over 5 days and shows 5 unique ways to use it. Last […]
This blog is about to get corny. See what I did there? I know, I know. Puns and corny jokes are kind of my thing! I get that from my Momma. She was the Queen. So, my birthday is on Saturday, and, well it’s a big one. The big 3-0. It’s not that I’m sad […]
Or maybe I should say, “lawbstah rolls.” That’s how my grandfather would have said it. My Pop-Pop Genovese, along with several of his brothers, and my uncle Mark all made their living as commercial fisherman. My maternal great grandparents emigrated from Sicily in the early 1900’s to Gloucester, Massachusetts, a fishing village made famous by […]
I’m just gonna come out and say it. These are the best chocolate chip cookies I’ve ever had: Brown butter chocolate chip cookies (with sea salt on top!) to be exact. Whaaaaaaaaaaaaat?!
Can I let you all in on a little secret? I hate Halloween. Hate is a strong word, and I don’t use it very often. But I spent the majority of my childhood being absolutely terrified of Halloween. So much so that I would miss school for days on end, staying up all night physically […]
