chick & bae

Where have I been? What have I been doing? How have I failed to update this blog for so long? Well, where do I start… I’ve continued to have a very busy, yet glamorous life, as you can see… I’ve been working but not much more than regular work hours, something about the past year […]

roasted red pepper pasta sauce

January 3, 2014

I’ve got this ability to cook for about a zillion people even though it’s only been me and Mr. Julia eating on a daily basis. Sometimes the things that I really want to cook, or when I find a recipe that looks “too cool to ignore” they don’t always re-heat to then become a second meal, or […]

Lemony Spinach Pasta

March 24, 2013

1

            This is a simple way to use up a lot of spinach – I usually have the majority of a bag left over once I make the handful or so into a salad or something (usually the handful is the reason that I bought the bag in the first […]

fresh pasta, cannellini beans, poached eggs, and wilted greens in a brown butter sauce

March 20, 2013

Since I challenged myself to shop for a LARGE amount of meals for the week and then tried to stumble through them as well as I could… I tried really hard to stick to the recipes I had chosen regardless of how well I thought they might be received – though I did try to […]

fresh pasta with prosciutto and peas

November 15, 2012

2

I, like so many Americans, am so guilty of eating way more than a recommended serving of pasta, and probably everything else, as well. Since we rarely eat out these days, and can easily avoid a 3-cup portion of pasta arriving on our table, I’ve been trying to figure out just how much I should be making […]

whole wheat rigatoni

With the impending doom of Sandy on her way, I’m unsure if I really should’ve taken the time to go to the grocery store before it became a mess – I don’t usually prepare for storms like the news would have you believe most of us do, but I don’t like to have my weekly shopping slowed […]

meatballs, including chicken

October 20, 2012

7

shhh don’t tell… I added ground chicken to these meatballs. They are made from the same recipe that I usually use, but I subbed one pound ground chicken, and the rest – 2 pounds of ground beef. I used a mixture of seasoned breadcrumbs and plain. Some fresh parsley and arugula, minced. All I had […]

artichoke and white bean fusilli

I bought the pasta attachment that I’d wanted forever from Target the other day. It, miraculously enough, was on sale the day after my birthday, and with free shipping (oh, yeah, AAA discounts, if you don’t know, you’d better find out…) so it showed up about a week or so after that. My kitchenaid mixer […]

butternut and tomatillo ravioli with butter sauce

October 12, 2012

  With winter around the corner. It’s time to roll out warm meals. The best part of this time of year is great comfort foods. One thing that never grows old is the fact that you can take something simple and traditional, and switch it up. One of my favorite things in the word is […]

Caprase Salad

October 2, 2012

I was talking to Aunty Cathy about our basil plants. She has a much more serious garden than I do… See example of mine below… She remarked that she was showing her friend how well they were doing this summer “see how the pesto is doing?” I too refer to my basil as its final […]
