Parmesan Cashew Crusted Salmon

Writing today while standing up at my kitchen island with a sleeping baby strapped to my chest.  How do other newborn parents find time to write and keep up with blogging? I have ideas swirling around in my head but L’s nap time is precious and each minute must be utilized with great intention! Naps […]

Roasted Rosemary Pork Tenderloin with Fingerling Potatoes and Broccoli

We’ve officially made it home alive from our first week-long vacation with a newborn!  I didn’t realize until we left the house just how small our bedroom and living room was starting to feel – and how much we needed some time in a new space.  Over the course of this trip we learned the […]

Lemon Basil Chicken Quinoa Bowl

Dinner time feels a bit different now that there is another little being living in the house with us.   For starters we are preparing and eating dinner far earlier than ever before. Previously we were the type to start cooking in the 7 range when we both were home from work and would eat […]

Creamy Pesto Spaghetti with Fresh Tomatoes

Well, it’s been almost a month since I last posted and in that time we have welcomed our snuggly, curious, and lovable son into this world! Liam was born on 7/13/19 (all prime numbers!) at 4:17 in the morning. He was born 7lbs 11oz and 20 inches long, 48 hours after my water broke.  It […]

BBQ Pulled Chicken

This pregnancy is flying by! It’s amazing to feel the shifts and transitions that have happened even just within this pregnancy and I can only imagine what will happen once this baby arrives. A few weekends ago we had the most amazing shower on the sunniest summer day. Our backyard was filled our family and […]

Turmeric Lentil and Veggie Soup

Ever since we first found out we were pregnant I’ve been looking forward to this weekend during which we spent a full day doing postpartum freezer meal prep! A few of us have done this before for other friends who are having babies and they’ve reported back how helpful it was to have meals on […]

We are starting a new chapter here at the Pantry Portfolio as in July we will be welcoming a new little one into our family! The journey to get here has been filled with adventure and we are beyond grateful and excited for our growing family.  As of now the cats and dog haven’t seemed […]

Instant Pot Butternut Squash and Leek Soup

Hi Everyone! It has been a busy winter over here, that has kept me super busy. I’ve been making many recipes from the blog but haven’t had the time to experiment and come up with as many new ones as usual.  Some of my favorites that I’ve been making are these spicy quick pickled radishes, […]

Salsa and Spinach Egg Muffins

100 years ago, here in my hometown of Boston, Massachusetts, there was a tank explosion which sent a 15 foot wave of molasses careening into the city at 50 feet per second.  The North End, which is now filled with cannolis and restaurants making fresh pasta, was shut down for weeks after the flood killed […]

Steak Cobb Salad with Quinoa

2019 is back in action and this year will be a year of slowing down, noticing and celebrating small joys, and of course adding new recipes into the portfolio! Taking a mini internet hiatus over the December break gave me some much needed time to pause, reflect on, and notice many of the positive things […]
