Photo Overload: Skies, Trees and Tasty Bites

When I downloaded photos from my camera today, I found more than 250 waiting to be gone through. I hope you don’t mind me sharing a few tonight. On Friday, two days before Irene, I looked out at the setting sun and saw this sky. It was viciously orange and red, and made me think […]

Wordless Wednesday: Snoopy Has the Right Idea

| January 27, 2011 | 3 Comments

Earlier today, I realized that it made so much more sense to move tonight’s post to next week when it will be more timely. I started working on another post, but the recipe isn’t there yet. And frankly, Snoopy here has the right idea. After shoveling snow a couple times today (don’t worry, we didn’t […]

The kids and I often dance in the kitchen while I am cooking or cleaning up from a meal. As soon as I turn the music on, they come running … it’s so much fun.

Taking a Snow Day

Apparently the kitchen nymphs were listening yesterday when I talked about things not going as planned because this morning when I went to make breakfast, my beloved range started acting up. It’s only five years old, and a wonderful glass top model with two ovens. I love it so. But today, it’s not loving me. […]

Simplicity: A Caprese Salad

Simplicity: A Caprese Salad

| September 9, 2009 | 3 Comments

Sometimes, things don’t need to be complicated to be fantastic. A peach, pealed and sliced. An apple dipped in honey. A slice of bread spread with a thin layer of hummus. Or, in this case, a simple salad. Sungold cherry tomatoes, tiny balls of fresh mozzarella, freshly torn basil, a swig of olive oil and […]

Almost Wordless Wednesday: Grilling Pizza

Almost Wordless Wednesday: Grilling Pizza

| September 3, 2009 | 8 Comments

Ever since hearing my cousin talk about grilling pizza recently, I have been somewhat obsessed with doing it myself. I consulted with her on technique (she grills first, tops and then broils to melt the cheese), I set about to grill a pizza from start to finish. I really want to avoid that added step […]

Wordless Wednesday: Summertime and the Living is Easy
