Zucchini and Corn Fritters

Our neighbors have the most swoon-worthy garden filled with prolific squashes, asparagus, greens, corn, cucumber, and of course zucchini! Apparently they aren’t big cooks and asked if we’d be interested in any veggies. Without hesitation I emphatically exclaimed that I’d take anything they didn’t want and promptly received the largest zucchini I’ve seen in some […]

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 […]

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 […]

Chipotle Chicken Burrito Bowl Lunches

September is here! Back to school, back to making weekly lunches on Sunday, back to finding a routine that is intentional and fulfilling.   As this summer comes to a close it is striking to step back and reflect on all of change that occurred in only a few months. It has felt as though […]

The Broccoli Salad Experiment

About a year ago, before starting this blog, I was hesitant in the kitchen.  I never knew where to begin and typically resorted to the same few dishes when it was my night to cook. Now, it has become part of my daily routine to read through the many beautiful, entertaining, and informative blogs I’ve […]

Corn on the Cob with Garlic Paprika Butter

Happy (belated) birthday to me! Having a 4th of July birthday means that I get to spend the day outside, with friends and family, and enjoy great BBQ food.  The highlight of the barbecue this year was my dad’s asian pulled pork and homemade pickles. I want to make this again soon and post it […]

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 […]

Beef and Broccoli

While takeout is a truly magical (and often necessary) invention, it certainly impacts the wallet and the waistline.  So, I’ve recently begun playing around with some of my favorite take home dishes at home.  I went went with this recipe as the base and added some stir fry veggies such as water chestnuts, and baby […]

Mom’s Corn Chowder

As I noted in my Lentils Monastery post, part of my plans this year with the blog are to cook the recipes that my mother left for me. With the start of spring, I figured it was time for corn chowder!  When reading her recipe however, I realized that she forgot to add a liquid […]

Taco Stuffed Peppers

This morning I went to a funeral for a dear friend’s wife whose body was taken by pancreatic cancer at age 42.  This poem, read at the ceremony, has been running through my mind all day.  As we enter 2016 I plan to keep these sentiments at the forefront of my consciousness. The Summer Day […]
