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 […]

BBQ Chicken Grain Bowl

Today I had square pizza for lunch. Yes, I’m talking about cafeteria pizza that you get in elementary school.  As a kiddo it brought me tremendous joy to walk through the food line and carry a square slice back to my table. It was typically the only time that I ate school lunch, and looking […]

Rosemary Garlic Salmon and Brussels Sprouts

Last weekend I traveled to Connecticut for a weekend of bridal pampering and planning for one of my best friends who is getting married in August.  We visited the stunning vineyard where she is getting married, had her hair trial, and ordered her shoes, all while the Maid of Honor and myself (matron of honor) […]

Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon

This here blog – my little corner of the world wide web – turns 2 today! While many celebrate birthdays with cake, I’ve decided to treat my savory loving self by cooking Ina Garten’s Balsamic Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Bacon.  I’ve prepared her recipe here as written (only swapping pancetta for bacon) because why alter […]

Cider-Braised Brussels with Bacon

Happy Halloween! This recipe comes 100% from Eating Well magazine. I rarely cook and post a recipe without making any changes, but when this issue came in the mail I knew I needed to cook this as-is.  My blog here is my online ‘recipe box’ – my place to store all of the things that […]

Pesto Pasta with Chicken Sausage & Roasted Brussels Sprouts

After our orientation to Italy in Chianti we hopped into our rental car and drove north to the Mediterranean coastline for a three night stay in Cinque Terre. The three hour drive highlighted the range of geography across Italy as we drove through farms, saw white capped mountains in the distance, and eventually arrived at […]

The Harissa Breakfast Bowl Experiment

Harissa, I’m in love!  Over the course of the last year I’ve eagerly saved several recipes that highlight this North African hot pepper paste such as The Book Cooks’ one pan roasted chicken.  Some reading led me to the fact that each brand can have a slightly different flavor, and so I picked up a […]

Warm Brussels Sprout Salad with Feta and Tomatoes

This weekend we joined the masses of young first time home buyers as we embarked on the search for our first home! We’ve been having a blast going to open houses, determining our hopes and dreams and seeing a huge range of homes.  It is fun to imagine what we could do with each space, […]

The Quinoa Breakfast Bowl Experiment

  Quinoa for breakfast (such as this) keeps popping up in my life and it seemed about time to give it a go.  We are huge quinoa fans and regularly have it for lunch and dinner – in casseroles, as a side dish, on top of a salad, etc.   Without enough ingredients to truly follow […]
