Salsa and Spinach Egg Muffins

100 years ago, here in my hometown of Boston, Massachusetts, there was a tank explosion which sent a 15 foot wave of molasses careening into the city at 50 feet per second.  The North End, which is now filled with cannolis and restaurants making fresh pasta, was shut down for weeks after the flood killed […]

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 […]

Kale Salad with Pear and Feta

Happy Vacation!  To all my teacher friends out there I know that these last few weeks have been filled with projects, work shares, exhaustion, and celebration.  You’ve made it and now it’s time to put your feet up and chill. I’ll be heading to Vermont in the morning and can’t wait to make the largest […]

Israeli Couscous Salad with Cucumber, Spinach, and Parsley

My porch planters are flourishing and I’ve been using fresh herbs every night to make dinner as well as some drinks.   We’ve thrown fresh mint into mojitos, rosemary into a gin & tonic, and basil into a blender with ice, raspberry preserves, and vodka – yum! (Can you tell we are in summer mode over […]

Farfalle with Asparagus, Olives, and Feta

This pasta was inspired by the fact that my husband was recently working late and I wanted to make a dish filled with things he hates! I do often eat asparagus and olives, but it’s rare that we have them in a main dish as eating common meals cuts down on preparation and waste. Case […]

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 […]

Tiny Quiche Bites

About a month ago my brother in-law was over for dinner when an amazon package arrived.  As I excitedly revealed this delightful tiny muffin tray, he commented “That looks like one of those 1 am purchases that is going to do an impressive job collecting dust in the back of your drawer.”  Well, I was […]

Breakfast Egg Muffins

I am breaking myself out of the creative block that I’ve been locked within! Here I go. These last few weeks we have been settling into our new home and finally have some curtains up on the walls.  When I come home at night, I am greeted by a place that smells like our home […]

Minty Watermelon and Feta Arugula Salad

I’m back! And boy what a month it has been. Since I last posted, I’ve spent a week of vacation in Rocky Mountain National Park, we bought our first home, transported our boxes, and today summer officially ended as I returned to work.  From sunrise to sunset I’ve been leaning into these experiences and haven’t […]

The Spinach Artichoke Dip Experiment

Those of you who are also teachers and/or work in schools know how special the first day of summer is, and today, we celebrate with the cheesiest spinach and artichoke dip in all the land! Surprisingly, I’ve never made spinach artichoke dip, despite the fact that I tend to hover near it at parties.  After […]
