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 […]

Sweet Potato Hash browns with Avocado

Work has been HARD this week (even with only two days) and I am READY for a vacation.  I can’t wait to spend the next 4.5 days with family and friends preparing and eating tremendous meals.  We have a tradition of driving to see both of our families over the course of this holiday and […]

Summer Salsa

I must say, having a 4th of July birthday is a pretty special treat.   Growing up one of my favorite birthday traditions was competing with my friends in an obstacle course we created around our house.  One at a time each of my friends would enter the circuit of elements from skip it, to […]

Potato Skins

“Just show up.”  It is this simple mantra that brings me back to my computer after a decent hiatus.  That, and an energizing conversation with a close friend who has started his own blog that explores school desegregation and/or resegregation happening across our country today. As our friends munched on yummy appetizers and watched the […]

Chipotle Chicken Quinoa Burrito Bowl

Dinner tonight made me finally appreciate that summer is just around the corner. More and more fresh vegetables are filling the grocery store and my planters are filled with budding herbs.  Beyond this, I was able to enjoy an after-work run as well as some time outside on my porch in the evening light.   This […]
