Grilled Fig and Prosciutto Pizza

Grilled pizza, where have you been all my life?  No really…This dish is easier to make than I realized and something that everyone should try.  I’m hooked. We first had grilled pizza when my cousin filled the table with a decadent variety of pies at a family reunion.  The crust had a great crunch and […]

Jalapeno Herbed Salmon over Smashed Potatoes [Instant Pot]

Summer has arrived and with that comes longer nights and just a bit more time to make dinner after work.  I’ve been playing around more and more with the Instant Pot to find recipes that are enhanced by using this tool.  Turns out the Instant Pot is quite versatile but I’m finding that some things […]

Black Bean, Corn, and Turkey Chili [Instant Pot]

This past week my husband and I celebrated our third wedding anniversary! It has become our tradition (as I noted in this post last year) to treat ourselves to a nice dinner at a place we haven’t yet tried.  This year we went to a restaurant called Little Donkey in Cambridge, MA which blew us […]

The Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic Experiment

March sure has come in like a lion.  First, we are getting a puppy! Our endeavor has been a rollercoaster, mostly due to my allergies which limit the pooches I’m able to snuggle. When we stumbled across the Bernedoodles (Bernese Mountain Dogs bred with Poodles) we fell in LOVE but countless breeders only had puppies […]

Pesto Chicken over Spaghetti Squash [Upgraded]

Well, the day has finally come when I’ve learned how to make my recipes printable! This is a true construction zone and I would love your feedback and/or thoughts as I work on these upgrades. The recipe below is an upgraded version of an experiment we posted last week with the addition of a white […]

Pesto Chicken over Spaghetti Squash

Hi friends! I haven’t written or posted in a while because I’ve been taking the month to get back into yoga, to spend evenings connecting with old friends, and to read some real books! Despite being MIA here on the blog we have actually cooked up a few new meals including freezer burritos that we […]

The Beef and Broccoli Experiment

As you may know, us living on the East Coast were just clobbered by a massive storm that was characterized as “bomb cyclone” Grayson.  Boston simultaneously experienced the highest recorded tide at the height of this storm which led to water flowing down subway stairs and inches of standing ocean water filling downtown streets where […]

The Kale, Potato, and Onion Frittata Experiment

This weekend we are hosting our 8th annual friends thanksgiving feast!  This meal started in our first apartment, and each year has morphed to include new friends, new dishes, and new traditions. This weekend I am also celebrating the TWO year anniversary of the blog. The blog archives currently hold a barley and butternut squash […]

The ‘Huevos Rancheros’ Experiment

I love playoff baseball! The energy of every game is electric and I always get to know some new teams and players outside of the Cardinals and Red Sox (the foundation of our family rivalry).   The downside of this season is that we have been staying up until at least midnight for far too many […]

The Shrimp Taco Experiment

Apparently today is National Taco Day, and without knowing it I made tacos for breakfast and for dinner! According to my father “these are not tacos — this is just food wrapped in a taco shell.”  But, I argued that the definition of a taco is broad. Plus, these do have guacamole, cajun seasoned shrimps, […]
