This quick and easy recipe for Black Beans and Beet Greens Burritos was created for Old El Paso and I was compensated for creating it. All opinions are my own. Two kids. Two schools. Two schedules. Two soccer teams. Two scouting troops. Two homework folders. Two packed lunches. Two of everything. Back to school is […]

My cousins have an organic farm, and for years we’ve gotten most of our veggies there every summer. We look forward to their amazing eggs, their huge heirloom tomatoes and their wonderful variety of greens every summer. But despite the fact that some years they grow garlic, I had to get my garlic scapes elsewhere. […]

Our local farmers market opened for the season yesterday (finally!). It used to be an all-organic market that was held just down the street from me. Just minutes away, it was tucked away in the parking lot of a local church. Then it moved a little downtown then a little across town. Throw in a […]

When the weather warms up, I start thinking about lighter foods. The soups and roasts that hit the spot on frigid New England winter days are forgotten in favor of lighter summer fare like fruit, everything grilled and salads. Dinner becomes an art of combining no-cook dishes (can’t heat up the kitchen!) combined with whatever […]

Things change. Opinions. Ideas. Directions. Plans. And you kind of just roll with it and see what happens. Still, I am always a little caught off guard by change — especially change that involves my kids taste buds. And boy, have they caught me off guard recently by enjoying some foods with a nip of […]

April is National Grilled Cheese Month. (Pausing for appropriate swooning … Don’t worry, I’ll wait. Okay, good now?) I don’t often get excited about food holidays but this is different. Grilled cheese is the thing that happy childhood memories are made of, right? When I bite into a gooey, melty grilled cheese, I can feel […]

Something happened this weekend. Perhaps it was the effect of our Saturday picnic on the beach (our first of the year!). Or maybe it was the marked uptick in temperatures that seems to be signalling that spring is really, truly, finally here. But this weekend, I suddenly felt so happy and at peace — more […]

But I want you to know that I’ve made an important breakthrough in my overnight French toast addiction — I’ve stepped beyond the confines of my very favorite Overnight Creme Brulee French Toast.

Sunday nights are usually a time for curling up with my favorite TV dramas (Maris and I love Revenge, and she tells me last night’s show was amazing). Sometimes, I dig into a little plate of crackers and cheese with a glass of wine while watching too. It’s an event, and one that often involves […]

When I saw these portabella mushrooms at a local grocery store, I swooned and my head filled with images of meaty roasted portabellas on a salad. Everything else I had imagined cooking vanished (I had really planned to stuff mushrooms with St. Patrick’s Day leftovers). I just wanted my warm portabellas and cool salad. We’re […]
