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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Spaghetti Squash Primavera Bowl

We have a snow day here in Massachusetts! Not just schools, but state offices and many businesses are canceled as well, with 11-14 inches of snow predicted to fall over the course of the day.  Man, I couldn’t be happier.  I still feel that childhood rush of excitement when a snow day arrives.  The entire world […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
