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 […]

Potato Skins

“Just show up.”  It is this simple mantra that brings me back to my computer after a decent hiatus.  That, and an energizing conversation with a close friend who has started his own blog that explores school desegregation and/or resegregation happening across our country today. As our friends munched on yummy appetizers and watched the […]

The Shakshuka Experiment

I’ve just wrapped up our 8th annual ladies weekend, a time for some of my former roommates and I to sneak away from the world, reconnect, reminisce, drink wine, sleep in, and indulge.  With a new baby in the group and one friend who moved down to Virginia, we chose to stay at home in […]

Potato & Kielbasa Skillet

It’s nights like these where I sit here and seriously dream of finding a way to sustain a life of working from home.  I played hookie last week on Thursday and Friday in order to help prepare for my dear friend’s wedding (which was on Saturday) and found myself in such a blissful state.  I […]

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 […]

Every Veggie & Tomato Soup

After a marathon day of meal prep this past weekend, our freezer is now full. Well – my friend’s freezer that is.  In about a week she will be having her first baby (!!) and so a few of us spent the day putting together small meals that they can pull out of the freezer […]

Garlic & Rosemary Roasted Potatoes

Apparently I cook with lots of potatoes! Since the blog’s inception, tags have been at the heart of this portfolio for me.   On nights without a meal plan I’m now able to open the fridge, pick out some ingredient staples, and click around to see what I’ve previously made. I am slowly building my own […]

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 […]

Acqua Pazza

This is another recipe that the hubs had perfected before we met and used it to successfully woo me in our early years.  When asked about the origin of this dish he shares a story he learned from an Italian chef at a restaurant he worked in post-college. “Back in the day, in Naples, the […]

Steak, Eggs, and Potatoes!

This past Sunday, as we were fueling up for our house hunting adventure, my husband made this delicious breakfast! I’m happy to say that I can take no credit for this meal. Now that we have a cast iron skillet we seem to be in the habit of cleaning any leftover food out of our […]
