The Kale, Potato, and Onion Frittata Experiment

This weekend we are hosting our 8th annual friends thanksgiving feast!  This meal started in our first apartment, and each year has morphed to include new friends, new dishes, and new traditions. This weekend I am also celebrating the TWO year anniversary of the blog. The blog archives currently hold a barley and butternut squash […]

Loaded Twice-Baked Potatoes

There is a deep joy that comes with seeing friends who you’ve known for many years. This afternoon I had brunch with some of my college friends and we laughed, we drank, we reminisced, and we put a lady-vacation onto the calendar.  Anyone have suggestions for Montreal or Quebec? We are heading there in April! […]

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 […]

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 […]
