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 […]

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 […]

The Beef and Broccoli Experiment

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 […]

Coconut Curried Chicken with Veggies

Me: “Hey what are you making for dinner tonight?” Ellen: “Coconut chicken curry” Me: “Oh wow! I’m so impressed… that’s out of my league.” Ellen: “Uh, are you sure? All you really do is pour and stir… which I know you are capable of.” For some reason I’ve had a mental block around cooking with […]

The Shrimp Taco Experiment

Apparently today is National Taco Day, and without knowing it I made tacos for breakfast and for dinner! According to my father “these are not tacos — this is just food wrapped in a taco shell.”  But, I argued that the definition of a taco is broad. Plus, these do have guacamole, cajun seasoned shrimps, […]

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 […]

Cold Lemony Farro Salad with Green Beans, Tomatoes, and Feta

Life is full of unexpected twists and turns, and I am happy to report that after being jostled about for the last month or so I have emerged a healthier and stronger version of myself. For anyone who has experienced the effects of cancer within your family you know how it can shake any sense […]

Farro and Mushroom Stuffed Acorn Squash

This is my 100th post, and I am SO happy that it gets to be this delicious dish.  Last week, while on vacation, I had lots of time to catch up on reading some of my favorite blogs and cataloging ‘things to make.’ During that process, I stumbled upon this amazing recipe from Figs and […]

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 […]
