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 […]

quesadilla – strip down version

April 17, 2014

I’m not sure why I’m still awake, or who this dude is after Jimmy Fallon- I haven’t been awake for the late-LATE show for an age and a half. Maybe it was the afternoon coffee followed by gym, cleaning and a second wind? I’m glad this late-late guy muted cause he looks just too awkward […]

biscuits (in under 20 mins)

At my parents house, you’ll find a copy of the Joy Of Cooking. The pages are kinda stuck together, and have some old dollops of batter staining the paper, making it look prematurely aged when it gets to the 600s. This is where you will find all the scones, cakes and biscuit recipes. While my […]

Kitchenaid troubles

Three or so years ago I brought my stand mixer home. It was a slightly impulsive move, but I was proud and thought it one of the best I’d made in a while. And now… Limping our way to the finish line, we made it. And by this I mean, I carried my poor stand […]

time flies, when you’re having fun

It has been a miserably long time since I’ve been able to even figure out how to make enough time for essential tasks when I get home from work, let alone things I want to do. Now that I’ve finally found some, I’m leaving my laundry to fend for itself, and I’m finally, finally able […]

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 […]

Lemony Spinach Pasta

March 24, 2013

            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 […]

salmon with cheese orzo

  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, […]

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

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 […]

chicken pot pie

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 […]
