Man, things are busy around here. Are they busy over there too? I bet they are. So we’ll keep this short and sweet today. Actually, not sweet. This one is savory. Very savory.
It just wouldn’t be Christmas time without cookies. Right?! Thanksgiving : Pie :: Christmas : Cookies! And that will be the last time I use an SAT problem format to reference food. Sorry about that guys.
What’s not to love about a holiday completely dedicated to eating? It’s the best! Thanksgiving makes me feel some type of way. But I don’t always love the way I feel after a weekend spent gorging on too much sugar, butter, carbs and wine. It feels so good in the moment – and I’m all […]
The popularity of the Mediterranean Diet has exploded in recent years, and for good reason. People living along the Mediterranean Sea have known for a long time that a diet high in unsaturated fats, vegetables, and fish is loaded with a slew of health benefits.
“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.

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 […]
It’s been a little weird not having a kitchen. But, honestly, not as weird as I had expected. Actually, it’s been kinda fun. Well, we’re not living completely kitchenless. That wasn’t an option. We need to at least be able to make coffee in the morning. So I created a mini-kitchen, of sorts, in the living […]
Now that winter seems to FINALLY be behind us, I got around to planting my spring garden this week. I planted all sorts of goodies: English peas, sugar snap peas, green beans, RAMPS, chard, kale, butter lettuce, arugula, mesclun mix, Romanesco cauliflower, broccoli rabe, strawberries, and a whole mess of herbs. Yay! I’m super stoked […]
