These days I’m all about quick dinners. I’ve been doing a crossfit-style high intensity workout class for the last few months every night after Nick gets home from work which means that I get home around 7:30 and have a short time to prep dinner. “Bowl” meals are all t...

I’ve recently realized that fall is, in fact, my favorite of all the seasons. I love fall clothes, fall temperatures, fall activities – and most of all, fall cooking. There is something so cozy and nostalgic about roasting root vegetables in a warm kitchen while the wi...

Hello dear readers!

I must apologize for the uncharacteristic delay in regularly-scheduled posting. I don't have a particularly good excuse except that homegirl has a LOT on her plate. Work is even busier than usual as I am supervising a major systems upgrade/data migra...

I don't know about all of you but when I'm pregnant, I crave fruit and cannot get enough of it. Melon, berries, tropical fruit, stone fruit - I want it all and lots of it. I'm averaging half a watermelon a day right now. (No, not the little "personal watermelons" but t...

I got an email last week from my Great Aunt Shirley in Sun Lakes, Arizona in response to my post about easy weeknight dinners. She wrote: "all so fancy! What ever happened to meatloaf and mashed potatoes and spaghetti and meatballs?" ... Shirley makes a great point. A...

As the requirements for meal preparation in my household grow increasingly restrictive (must be nutritious, easy to prepare, appetizing to a husband that craves hearty food and a child for whom vegetables must be disguised, etc. etc.), I feel more than ever inclined to...
