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 […]

Sunday dinners are a special time of the week.  It marks the end of a restful weekend and indicates the transition back into the work week.  For food lovers like myself, Sundays are often filled with meal prep and the opportunity to make a large batch of food that can be reheated throughout the week. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Girls weekend was another smashing success complete with new puppies, a 90s dance party, and every type of cheese and wine. This year, for our 9th annual trip, we went down to Charlottesville, Virginia to see our friend’s amazing new house. She lives just outside of the city nestled between a hub of stunning wineries […]

‘Plan to have no plan’ was the theme of our date night this weekend as the hubs and I went out into the world and saw where the day took us.  We browsed the aisles of a favorite local bookstore then sipped on warm tea as we shuffled about town in single digit weather.  We […]

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 […]

“You don’t need fixing – you are perfect just the way you are!”-  Adriene Mishler January 1st has arrived and I’m ready to close the door on 2017 and enter 2018 with an open mind. This will be my third year kicking off the year with a 30 days of yoga series put out by […]

  Today is our final morning at our family’s Vermont retreat.  Somehow time up here finds a beautiful way of standing still.  Maybe it’s the fact that there is no TV and we spend full days together, reading, playing games, laughing, and grazing.  Maybe it’s the fact that that there is no ‘agenda’ for several […]

I’ve seen many make-ahead breakfast bakes posted this week and I fully understand why this is a well loved and well utilized tradition around the holidays.  I remember my mother first making  this strata for Christmas in 2013 when we hosted my husband’s parents for a holiday feast.  She used this recipe from King Arthur […]
