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 […]

Pesto and Pepper Frittata

Frittatas are the perfect ‘garbage meal’ meaning you can empty your fridge of practically any veggies, meats, and/or cheeses in order to create a unique and delicious meal. Beyond this, frittatas can be made ahead of time and then served cold or pre-heated. I’m grateful to have learned how to make these and of course […]

One Pot Pasta

I came home ravenous last night after my first real run of the season. It felt great to get moving again but I needed to make something that was fast, easy and hard to mess up so that I could engage in some necessary r&r. In previous weeks I’d seen a few recipes for this method […]
