Pineapple Salsa

Exactly one year ago, I was exactly 13 days away from getting married. Which means I was probably about 7 days away from a 6-day stretch of sleepless nights, last-minute anxiety about silly, arbitrary things that I’ll never care about again like place-cards and the […]

Open-Faced Chicken Caprese

Open-Faced Chicken Caprese

There’s just something about pairing food with seasons. Pumpkins and fall. Winter and soup. They’re inseparable, like sweethearts through the ages that come round once a year. Spring and summer are all about freshness – berries, vegetables, herbs. But when its the thick of summer, […]

…Is This Thing Still On?

…Is This Thing Still On?

Oh hey. Are you guys still there? It’s been a minute or two, so I wouldn’t hold it against you in the least if you wandered away into greener blog pastures (as long as you don’t hold it against me that I stole Obama’s dad […]

Chard, Leek, and Feta Quiche

January is the worst. I’m sorry, it just is. Without the holidays to blur the sharp glare of winter, January is like that first week back in the office after a month-long tropical vacation. The good times are over. There’s nothing to look forward to. […]

Berry & Green Smoothie

Last weekend was wonderful. I got together with friends, we ventured to an adorable winery about an hour outside the city. We sipped, we ate, we laughed. There were crisp whites, deep reds, blueberry wines, spiced apple wines… and delicious grappa, cognac, and whiskey. And […]

Roasted Red Pepper and Kale Soup

Roasted Red Pepper and Kale Soup

Even though I love to cook, dream about it (…some great ideas have come to me in my sleep, although I have a recurring nightmare about chocolate seizing. I think its post-culinary-school-trauma related. Another story for another time.), and live for it…sometimes I just don’t […]

Turkey Chili with Sage, Spinach, and Roasted Butternut Squash

Well friends, it’s here. December. Fa la la. Ho ho ho. Yadda yadda yadda. That came out wrong. Let me start over. I adore the holidays. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year. If it were up to me, it would start […]

Pecan-Crusted Pumpkin Pie

Pecan-Crusted Pumpkin Pie

Yeah yeah, I know what you’re thinking. “Uh, aren’t you a little late? No one cares about pumpkin pie anymore.” I get it. Thanksgiving was last week, and everyone’s had their fill of creamy pumpkin deliciousness. Or so you think. I’m bucking tradition. No pumpkin […]
