black bean salad

Recently I’ve noticed the serious lack of vegetables on our plates. This is our first summer without a CSA share in a few years, and sadly, it’s a noticeable difference. Since I couldn’t see spending the money this year on a share, lets chalk it up to the fact that there aren’t enough hours in […]

the urge to bake

Given the fact that I am trying to get myself back behind the computer more frequently, I searched a few things on wordpress and found that they have a daily challenge, and while I’m not sure I can make the daily part of the challenge fit into my focus, or my schedule, I might as well […]

hot summer nights

It amazes me every year, how quickly I get overwhelmed by the summer months. We’ve had heat wave after heat wave, and though I know this hasn’t been the worst summer on record, it has felt outrageously brutal at times. I’ve found myself too exhausted for words after a long hot day of work. Imagine, […]

Is this my 200th post? I think it might be… Today I did a few things that I didn’t think I could manage in the kitchen. It’s been a while since I’ve tried to push myself to try to make things that I usually wouldn’t even think about, but today seemed like a good day […]

Again, things have been quiet from me over here. Things have been crazy lately, not only here in Boston due to recent events, but in my own life, in my work life, and no matter who I ask they will not put more hours in the day for me. Sup? How am I supposed to get this […]

My heart is sick over todays events downtown at the finish line. My thoughts go out to those who’s lives were taken, who were injured or have lost touch with their loved ones – may you find eachother quickly and in good health.

Lemony Spinach Pasta

            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 […]

  Three days into my challenge to stretch just under $100 as far as I knew how, and I decided not to follow my list. Well, not to a tee… I bought Salmon, and I got parsley and a few other greens that I was going to try to make this other salmon dish with, […]

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 […]

With my lofty plans for triumphs in the kitchen this week, I thought I might start off with something that I knew would be easily stored, quickly reheated, safely transported to my little sister so she could simplify her college life and (hopefully) be focused on homework and not have to worry about a few […]
