Yesterday was the first time in months that I haven’t posted on my usually Monday through Friday schedule. Sure, I could have posted a Wordless Wednesday photo or pointed out a recent article. But my words and ideas just wouldn’t come. I was spent, and needed a day off. I hope you understand. Now, let’s […]

Sunday is usually a big day around here for the kids and I. We make snacks for the week, perhaps some exciting dessert or side dish, and we take a billion photos … but yesterday, with the soaring temps and humidity, we didn’t cook at all, save a quick, easy new coleslaw recipe that will […]

When I served our salad last night, I was a little apprehensive. Shawn isn’t a big fan of lemon so I wasn’t sure he’d even try this dressing. But he tasted it on one piece of lettuce and then dressed his whole salad with it. “Rosemary is really the star,” he remarked … and it […]

It’s springtime, and I am so done with heavy foods. Aren’t you? Belly-filling, bone-warming foods are great when it’s chilly outside, but when it gets warm, you don’t want to be bogged down like that … or, at least I don’t. In any case, this salad/lunch is perfect for when you want something lighter. I […]

Canned meats totally and utterly freak me out. Seriously, they do. My husband happily enjoys canned tuna and chicken, but I cringe at the site of the stuff. However, when I saw a food magazine that I like tout the wonderful ease of using canned salmon, I was intrigued and bought a can. Naturally, it […]

The sun came out this morning, bringing with it deep blue skies and promise of better weather to come. As cliche as it sounds, it was a sight for sore eyes …  Really, all I can think is thank goodness. The New England winter bought so much snow this year, and ice too. And the […]

The kids and I made a Mexican Chopped Salad today. It was awesome, and they gobbled it up. Actually, we gobbled it up. But what was more awesome was our conversation while we cooked. While making it, I made a last-second trade-out of an ingredient, substituting agave nectar for honey. Will immediately asked me why, […]

A few months ago, I read somewhere that basically Brussels sprouts are the new black. While I agree that they are absolutely, positively delectable … I think this highly underrated vegetable has been getting its long-awaited dues for awhile now. People are recognizing how delicious a well-prepared sprout can be, and eaten them up. Literally. […]

I have a big confession to make: I’ve been eating daikon radishes for more than 10 years but only recently learned what this delicious, crunchy veggie was called. In fact, I only learned daikon’s name by process of elimination, followed by research, after a friend asked me what it was at a restaurant … In […]
