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 […]

Beef and Lentil Shepard’s Pie

For as many years as I can remember, my Baba’s favorite Christmas gift was a ‘food box’ from my parents containing her favorite grocery and pantry items. Each year the same old sturdy tomato box was dug out of the garage with the top pre-wrapped for easy opening and re-use.  This tradition initially started as […]

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 […]

Spinach Stuffed Shells

This is my 90th post! A year ago I regularly opened my fridge unsure of what to make for dinner and now my electronic recipe box is filling before my eyes and my repertoire is expanding.  Just this week I made these lentils for lunch, as well as a batch of chili, each time utilizing […]

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 […]

The Eggs Baked in a Portobello Mushroom Experiment

With one remaining portobello mushroom in the fridge I set out to make myself a breakfast treat inspired by this recipe and my favorite motto – put an egg on it!   The process was straightforward.  I first sprayed the mushroom with olive oil and seasoned it with salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  Then I […]

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 […]

Chipotle Chicken Quinoa Burrito Bowl

Dinner tonight made me finally appreciate that summer is just around the corner. More and more fresh vegetables are filling the grocery store and my planters are filled with budding herbs.  Beyond this, I was able to enjoy an after-work run as well as some time outside on my porch in the evening light.   This […]
