salmon with cheese orzo

March 21, 2013


  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, […]

vegetable rice pilaf

December 2, 2012


If you are anything like me, you over-bought for Thanksgiving in a bewildering way. I managed to shop for carrots and celery twice when my sister had asked me only to make on tray of stuffing (which only requires one cup of diced celery) none of which required carrots. I did have a serious stomach bug issue […]

chicken sandwich

September 21, 2012


Dejavu, all over again, right? You just saw these rolls. Why do you care to see them again? Because I’ve got a few minutes and I decided to break these things down into various posts so that I can ‘splain myself, and pass the time until my food needs to come out of the oven. […]

Happy Birthday To Me!

September 11, 2012


This past Saturday I turned 28. It’s been a pretty good year, overall. Busy, at times crazy making, and exhausting, but all in all not too shabby. I woke up, made some coffee, watched the news. Waited for what seemed like an eternity for my Auntie to call me to sing happy birthday. She usually […]

chocolate chip cookies

August 30, 2012


I don’t really like chocolate at all. I’ve been over this a great many times. After asking my better/other half if he’d try these cookies he informed me that he didn’t really like chocolate chip cookies either. Damn. Left here with all these cookies, what’s a girl to do!? Silly girl. Not left with cookies, […]

fettuccine alla carbonara

June 6, 2012


Today was fairly tame, as far as Wednesdays can go. Nothing anybody else did at work (which turned out to be not much) was helpful, but thankfully I was left completely alone, to listen to whatever music I wanted to, and I ended up getting more done than I thought I would. This is always a good […]

Memorial Day Weekend

May 28, 2012


I hope everybody had a lovely, safe “unofficial start” to the summer. The end of last week looked dismal. I was sick as a dog, couldn’t breath through either nostril, which meant I woke up choking several times a night- dreadful. I thought the long weekend was doomed. It didn’t help that the weather guys […]

homemade orecchiette pasta with fennel, sausage and tomatoes

July 21, 2011


I’m a huge fan of Sunday dinner. It’s so easy – usually I can take hours to prepare something, as apposed to a regular day of the week where I want to be in and out of the kitchen in a reasonable amount of time (read: as quickly as effing possible). My CSA share last week […]


January 25, 2011


My friend dragged me to the gym Monday night. It was probably the best thing I could do with my time, I didn’t even know where my gym bag or my sneakers were – for starters. I got to the gym, got a ticket for the class, and changed for the class. It was so […]

Prepping for the week…

January 19, 2011


I went food shopping today (for the first time in… a long time), and tried to make the most efficient list I’ve ever attempted! I filled an 8.5X11 page of paper with all kinds of things, and tried my best to stick to the list. I took my little sister with me, cause we were […]
