Growing up, I had a very cut and dry sense of food. It wasn’t anyone’s doing, just in my head I created this black and white picture of food. It had to fit into the little niche space I mentally created for it. Pasta was always served with marinara (except for the one or two […]

Sometimes, I just don’t know where to start when I write about a recipe. Do I tell you how Paige ate so many of these meatballs that I wondered if she was hiding them in her shirt for later? Or do I tell you how Will was reluctant to eat them, but ended up cleaning […]

My kids have adventurous appetites. If they see me eating it, they are usually game to try too. It couldn’t make me happier. I love when they gobble up sweet potatoes and don’t question asparagus. But avocado? It depends on the day. Considering that attitude, I was really surprised recently when both Will and Paige […]

Of course I knew it was a school day for Will the other day, but I felt like there was still plenty of time before the rush and routine of getting ready to go. I was sitting on the couch, Will on my lap, watching something forgettable when it struck me: It was nearing noon […]

This photo doesn’t do the dish justice. I love mixing a tomato sauce with broccoli. And when it’s lightly roasted broccoli like you find in this recipe, it’s all the better. Roasting broccoli brings out a great, lightly sweet flavor in it. Will and Paige gobbled this up. (This is part of The $7 Dinner […]

It was a blast today at The Martha Stewart Show. Did you check out my live blogging? It was a tiring endeavor, but worth every second. It’s interesting to go back and see my stream of thought too. (Did you know that Martha herself blogs? She does. Pretty cool.) If I could have had one […]

Many people have asked me, “Doesn’t Shawn cook?” Well, folks, he does. And he does it pretty well. I just don’t typically share his recipes . . . something should be sacred, no?

It’s grilling season! It’s grilling season! That’s exactly what I felt like shouting the first night that Shawn and I cooked dinner outside. We’ve repeated our outdoor cooking almost every night since. I love grilling outside. The scent of cooking food wafting through the air, the sounds of crackling inside the grill, the wave of […]

I’ve been cooking almost daily. I love cooking so that’s a chore I totally don’t mind doing. And there are several great benefits to cooking at home, instead of getting take out or going out. For one, a meal made at home is cheaper than one in a restaurant. That’s always a good thing. For […]
