“So, terrible thing about the apartment, I guess, huh Julia?” I looked past the very tall lady standing at the counter who was being ignored by all salespeople, “How’s that?” I asked, wondering just what gossip these guys had been spreading about me. “Well, if the stove doesn’t work, I guess you’ll just have to […]

A few years ago my entire family (cousins too) got on the T together (a rare occasion indeed) and after pushing our way through the crowded subway stations and across the heart of Boston, we lined up outside a theater downtown. We had tickets to see Eddie Izzard. He is quite possibly one of the […]

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 […]

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 […]

I failed to take any pictures of this, in the making, or afterwards or before we ate it, and before I left it at my friend’s house, but it was good. Making a flavored butter really couldn’t be easier. The possibilities are pretty much endless. If you have a food processor, even a teeny prep […]

I may be more interested in making chocolate things, now that I have an outlet for them. I’ll try a bite here and there, but I still don’t search out chocolate things (save my absolute favorite candy that is hidden inside this cupcake) but most of the things I bake get packed up and delivered to people […]

“Well,” I said “I can make oatmeal cookies, but I don’t have a damn thing to put in them. No chocolate chips, no raisins, nothing!” To this, I got a bit of a weird look. “Convenient. I don’t like oatmeal cookies that have stuff in them.” Enough said! I was off to the stand mixer […]

Can you believe it’s October? I can’t believe that time has passed this quickly! It seems like just yesterday I was sweating to death, trying to find some shade at work, and eager to go anywhere that might have air conditioning. oh, chicken pot pie homemade hot pocket? Why, yes. In a manner of speaking. […]

Do you hate food shopping after a workday? I do. I mouth off about it constantly. I manage to forget more things than I remember to buy when I shop after work, the distractions are loud and never ending, and I almost got run over by kids screaming down the aisles last time. I managed […]

Do you see that? That is the smoked paprika and pink Himalayan salt that I allowed myself to splurge on at Whole Foods the other day. It looks pretty when it’s mixed together. It looks much less attractive when it’s being rung up… And I was beginning to think that I was a little too cheap for this […]
