| March 9, 2011 | 3 Comments

St. Patrick’s Day is next week, so it’s almost time to break out the Harp beer and slice the corned beef. Not kidding. When Foodily asked me what we’ll be eating on St. Patrick’s Day, I giggled. As much as I am a firm believer in authentic foods, I am also a full-fledged, card-carrying, head-over-heels […]

When Paige and I went to the grocery store yesterday, we emerged with a selection of fruits and veggies, a couple pounds of my favorite bacon (the price dropped from $3.99 to $0.99/lb!) and four different yogurts. And I don’t mean four containers, I mean mass quantities of four different kinds of yogurt. If you […]

Yesterday, I didn’t feel like eggs in the morning. Or oatmeal. Or cereal. Or anything vaguely resembling a “normal” breakfast. I just didn’t. It reminded me of my younger days when breakfast foods were persona non grata in my life. But I’ve made a concerted effort in recent years to eat breakfast because it’s good […]

Over the past few years, I have made a big effort to eat breakfast. And lately, that has turned into an effort to eat a good, nutritious breakfast. Somewhere along the way, I stopped hating most eggs, and started really enjoying them in a variety of forms. But I couldn’t seem to get on the […]

I have been tracking my eating this week. It’s an eye-opening thing that really shows me where I need to work in terms of my nutrition. More calcium, more fiber and more balances breakfasts and lunches are the things that popped out at me. Apparently, I don’t eat nearly as many fruits and veggies as […]

This morning. 5ish. The phone rings. Through my sleep, I mumble something about it being the school – perhaps a cancellation? Shawn answers the call. “There’s a 90 minute delay,” he tells me. No need to tune into the local radio station, because the school alerted us. Alarm clock switched to off. My, how things […]

In the summertime, we eat only fresh tomatoes — tiny ones that the kids pick directly from the vines on our backyard. Giant heirlooms from local organic farms. Red ones, orange ones, yellow ones and green ones … Sometimes it’s just plain. Sometimes with a little sprinkle of salt. Sometimes with cheese and vinaigrette. Yes, […]

When I order a breakfast sandwich, I want it to be messy. Back when I worked for a big publisher, the chef who did breakfast in the office cafeteria would always crack the egg yolk with the side of his spatula when cooking my ham, egg and cheese. It drove me bonkers. I like the […]

When I went on vacation with my friend’s family as a teen, I was nervous. I wanted to be the model guest. So, I was well-behaved and had good manners, but I still felt nervous — especially when it came to ordering food. Maybe it was silly to be so concerned about, but I worried […]

Lately, I have been thinking so much about making these things to enjoy for breakfast. Though I don’t do it as often as I like, baking breakfast breads is something I love. And these Apple […]
