See that little orange globe in my logo? That’s a Sun Gold tomato! And it’s my favorite kind of tomato. And tomatoes are my favorite kind of vegetable. Fruit? Whatever.
TOMORROW! Sunday, April 12th is National Grilled Cheese Day! And what a day to celebrate, amIright?! Seriously, though, who doesn’t love a grilled cheese? Even the crappiest white bread and cheap American “cheese product” makes one hell of a sandwich. And while I never met a grilled cheese I didn’t like, just like with cheeseburgers, I tend to…
Now this is a story all about how My leftovers got flipped-turned upside down And I’d like to take a minute, just sit on your throne I’ll tell you how I made them into a soup called minestrone! Just call me the Fresh Princess of Soup. Or call me a nerd. Either way, we both […]
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.

It’s official: I no longer have a kitchen. I know, man. It’s a lot to wrap my head around. Last week, I woke up dreaming about this beautiful French tomato tart that I had made a few years ago.

Can you believe its October already? I can’t. I’m just not ready to let go of summer yet. I’m not ready to accept the days getting shorter, the weather getting cooler, or the holidays that are just around the corner.
Spain. Beautiful architecture. Charming countryside. Scenic coastline. Tapas. Sherry. Paella. It’s a pretty magnificent place. But… I’ve never been. Coming up in a few weeks in the little town of Brunol (near Valencia) is the annual city-wide tomato fight, La Tomatina. Every year during the last week in August, a huge festival is thrown celebrating […]
A few years ago, I set out to start a blog. A food blog! I was going to call it “Too full for school”.. clever.. right? No, it was a ridiculous name for a food blog. Very cheesy.. and no one would “get it”… And my writing- terrible! And heck, what do I know? No […]
