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 […]

Bruschetta Chicken with Green Beans

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 […]

Filet Wellington

After a relaxing weekend with friends in the Catskills we made a detour on the way home to cut down our Christmas tree!  Wandering the forest, saw in hand, we inspected each tree from top to bottom, eventually selecting our gem. Once home we filled our mugs with warm hot chocolate, turned on holiday tunes, […]

Pesto Poached Cod Over Green Beans and Farro

We finally went to see Hamilton and boy was it worth the splurge. While I knew it was going to be fantastic, I was blown away by the depth that the staging and choreography added to each song.   Also, this weekend we are celebrating our 9th Friends Thanksgiving!  After a romp in the snow […]

Honey Mustard Chicken Thighs with Roasted Brussels Sprouts over Farro

Growing up I proudly professed the unique fact that my parents, brother, and I all had birthdays that fell on holidays.  Each year I celebrate my birthday on July 4th, my brother was born on Mother’s day, and my father’s birthday occasionally lands on Thanksgiving.  As this story came up at dinner parties my mother […]

Instant Pot BBQ Chicken Sliders

Well, it’s a good thing we’ve been keeping a ‘just in case’ house fund because we just gave a large percentage of that over to a plumber.  Of course this is coming right after my post last week where I was fantasizing about finally redecorating our living room.   This clearly meant that it was time […]
