The ‘Huevos Rancheros’ Experiment

I love playoff baseball! The energy of every game is electric and I always get to know some new teams and players outside of the Cardinals and Red Sox (the foundation of our family rivalry).   The downside of this season is that we have been staying up until at least midnight for far too many […]

Baked Sweet Potatoes Stuffed with Curried Veggies

Fall is upon us and I am feeling the flavors! Driving home from work this evening I had a craving for sweet potatoes.  I haven’t posted ANY recipes using this vegetable and I think it’s time for that to change. [Sidenote: I have posted 113 recipes in my almost 2 years of the blog and […]

Mom’s Steak Tips

With only three ingredients – soy sauce, bourbon, and oil, this is the only way I remember my mom ever making steak tips. My mother never drank, but she was always sure to have a bottle of bourbon tucked away for this recipe.  It was one of those ‘special treat’ dinners that we only had […]

The Sausage & Spinach Stuffed Portabellini Mushroom Experiment

Walking through the grocery store this afternoon we found some mini portobello mushrooms that quickly found their way into our cart.  After spending the last few weekends out of town we were excited to ‘treat ourselves’ with a homemade meal of steak tips and green beans (post coming soon).  As an appetizer I made some […]

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 […]

Potato Salad

Happy Summer Solstice and three cheers for outdoor BBQ season!  Here in our household we eat dinner outside about 3-4 times per week as the evening air is relaxing and soothing (particularly due to the fact that we don’t have central air).   As I’ve been cooking for these meals I recently realized that I’ve never […]

Grilled Salmon with Avocado Salsa

Tonight we had a salmon feast to round out a week of celebrations!  While we chose to make this week of school vacation a ‘staycation’ it ended up to be filled with day after day of reasons to raise a glass.  Here are just some of the highlights. On Easter Sunday last weekend we spent […]

The Green Shakshuka Experiment

I have been on a reading rampage so far this year as I work towards my goal of reading 25 books in 2017.  So far I’ve read 11. Commuting used to be an anxiety producing part of my day filled with honking horns and unexpected construction.  (Have I mentioned I live in Boston?)  Now, however, […]

Spinach, Sausage, and Leek Breakfast Bake

Ok April, here we go.  This year, my April will be filled with veggies and devoid of carbs.  Inspired by some friends, I’ve decided to do my own ‘cleanse’ this month where I eat lots of real food, less sugar, fewer grains, and little to no alcohol – eek!  It is day three and I […]

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 […]
