Zesty Black Bean, Corn and Cucumber Salad

Zesty Black Bean, Corn and Cucumber Salad

The good news is that I had tremendous success grilling clams in beer on my parents’ gas grill this weekend. The bad news is I forgot my camera and have zero photo evidence to show for it. So how to grill clams on a gas grill will be a story for another day, I guess. […]

Ham and Lavender Hash

For once, I planned this breakfast menu days in advance. It actually started with the biscuit. When I saw the recipe on A Year in Bread, I knew it was something I had to try (particularly since I’ve had a monster craving for biscuits this pregnancy). But what to pair with it? Being that it’s […]

Mommy, I wannnnt pizzzzzza!

Will LOVES pizza. It is quite possibly his all-time favorite food, though he is still a little young to say for sure. Nonetheless, whenever I ask him what he wants to eat for dinner, the answer is usually pizza (or, as he says it, peet-za). Knowing that my husband would be working tonight, I decided […]

Is the weekend really over already? I mean, I know I had a longer weekend thanks to an out-of-town work assignment Friday that left me with the afternoon off. And I know I fit a ton of things into my weekend, like reorganizing my pantry, my office/former dining room closet, swimming, farmer’s market, grocery shopping, […]

French Toast and Ina Garten’s Maple Roasted Bacon

French Toast and Ina Garten’s Maple Roasted Bacon

I was much more daring this week with my breakfast. We had Ina Garten’s Maple Roasted Bacon, hash browns, a cheddar omelet split between Will and Shawn, and French toast. Talk about carb overload. Secret of making good breakfast #1: Lower the temperature on the burner! You would think I already knew this, but the […]

Ginger Soy Pork Chops, Mmmm

Let’s get something clear – I don’t like pork chops. I purchased a large quantity when I was developing recipes for the cookbook and have several left over. I was dreading eating them, but knew I couldn’t put it off forever (much as I would like to!). But then I saw a recipe at Kalyn’s […]

Sunday Breakfasts #1: Cinnamon Toast

Sunday Breakfasts #1: Cinnamon Toast

Cinnamon toast anyone? Cinnamon toast happens to be a favorite breakfast for both Will and I. It could have something to do with the fact that I am a disaster when it comes to traditional breakfast foods. Pancakes burn, eggs dry out, sausage turns to rubber … it’s a curse. But one I want to […]

Back in April, Kalyn posted a question to me here. I tactfully (or perhaps not so tactfully) ignored it because it wasn’t one I was ready to answer in public. But I think I have waited a sufficient amount of time now. So, the answer is yes, Kalyn, I am pregnant. Will, my sweet little […]

Well, not really. But geez would I like to – back to the city, where it’s safe. (If you just want to read about food, hop down to the Food, yay! header.) Yesterday afternoon/evening was, in a word, stressful. I battled bumper to bumper traffic to get to Will’s daycare by 5:30 (I got there […]

I can’t believe it’s Memorial Day already. Yea for warm weather, swimming and lots of beach time! Boo for overpriced gas and higher electric bills. Can’t have it all, can we? Tomorrow, we are heading to the beach for a family day and probably a barbecue. Nothing quite compares with sand, surf and family on […]
