We were lucky, tucked up on a hill here in Boston, so close to the the water -link to picture is 1-1/2 blocks away from my aunt and grandmother’s house! Watching the tarps on the Tobin Bridge being battered by the whipping winds, streets already flooded and trees coming down around me as I headed home […]

Maybe the trick is, don’t buy three things in bulk, smack in the middle of your busiest week in a while. Maybe thats the bit of intelligence that was missing from my half-assed planning. So, I thought, what the hell! I’ll just get peaches. A hell of a lot of peaches. My friend who splits […]

When I received the cookbook Pioneer Woman Cooks, I made a few things from it and then lent it out to my friend who wanted to start cooking. She and her sister used it and made a few things (I believe) but I know for sure, she made these poppers. I’ve never known someone so […]

This lady Bridget was able to break it down for me. Took the fear out of pulling pork. Seriously, […]
