Spiced Toasted-Oat Waffles with Blueberry-Ginger Syrup

Whenever I go out to breakfast or brunch, I’m always torn. Do I go sweet, or savory? I absolutely adore anything that’s designed to be a vehicle for maple syrup and butter, but sometimes I’m left with a sugar hangover. Somehow, it doesn’t feel like […]

Sometimes, what seem to be the simplest things are the most elusive.  Sleep, for example.  It’s a basic human function. People do it on the subway, standing up. My cats do it for 20 hours a day. My brother can pretty much do it on […]

Perfect Brownie Bites

Perfect Brownie Bites

To be honest, I’m not much of a Halloween girl. I used to be, of course, when I was a kid. I was a princess, and the lion from the Wizard of Oz, and a sassy pirate. My dad would wear a ridiculous monster mask […]

Creamy & Spicy Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

Alright, guys. Let’s talk about pasta. It’s a glorious thing, right? Chewy, carby goodness. Growing up, we had pasta for dinner on a semi-regular basis. My older brother hated it, which to this day I’ll never understand. I thought he was crazy. It was always […]

So, I know that we’ve only just crested the hill into autumn and summer is still clinging in the air, but since I was ready for fall about a month and a half ago, I’d say this recipe is right on time. Alright, maybe I’m […]
