This pasta is a step out of the ordinary for me. It’s rare that I make a pound of pasta for the four of us. Usually I am a half-pound-serves-four girl, but when I was making this, I decided to indulge. Good thing I did. The kids went crazy for this pasta, each having a […]

My husband knows that when I want to make a dietary change (like when I decided to cut way back on red meat last year), the whole family is going to be in on it with me. Hey, I am no short order cook, and I am confident that whatever healthy meals I serve will […]

This is a delicious, easy macaroni and cheese … but we will get to that in a minute. Until I was in high school, I visited Santa every year — either at the mall or some store that hosted him. It was a thing, a must. But with Will and Paige, I haven’t made it […]

A new meat market recently opened in my town, and I can’t wait to try it. Just a few years ago, meat markets were few and far between in my area. When I was pregnant with Paige, I spent hours searching the internet for butchers and meat markets in the area, coming up with little. […]

Some nights, the idea of actually cooking is enough to drive you mad. When that happens you can reach for the takeout menu or do something about it. If you choose the latter, having a dish like this in your cache is a must. A little tangy. A certain richness. Meaty tuna. This pasta has […]

Every fall, I make a big batch of Roasted Tomato Sauce (and, last year, tomato paste) and can it for wintertime. Opening up a jar of it in the dead of winter is glorious. It’s like bottling summertime. But this year I just haven’t gotten to it and really am not sure if I will. […]

We all make choices every day: shopping the farmers market or not, shopping at big supermarkets or small local markets, cooking at home or eating out, trying something new or sticking with something you know you’ll love and enjoy. When it comes to food, everything is a choice. I used to […]

Yesterday was a day filled with sandcastles, swimming and laughter. The kids and I spent nearly all day at the beach (don’t worry, we remembered the sunscreen!). We paused for a fast lunch, but otherwise we could be found splashing in the water, playing in the sand and generally having a good time. When I […]
