No excuses for my repeated absences, life is just crazy right now. Two weeks from today we’ll be spending our first full day as Georgia residents. That day is already jam packed with locksmith, internet, and cable appointments. Back in DC, we spent Saturday night celebrating our time in DC with friends. M’s oldest friendsContinue Reading

One of the things I’m most looking forward to in the new house is my massive whirlpool tub. The condo I lived in before M and I moved in together had a good, deep tub. I would take a bath at least two times a week. The tub in our apartment is awful. Truly, trulyContinue Reading

For me, Sunday afternoons are for cooking elaborate, time consuming meals. It’s not practical during the week. Friday nights, I’m exhaused. Saturday, I avoid the kitchen like the plague. But Sunday afternoon, I’m ready to spend a few hours reconnecting with the stove. This Chicken Cannelloni dish is made for Sundays. Even though I tookContinue Reading

I sound like a broken record: this week has been crazy. In my real life, I own a graphic design shop. It’s small — just me and the dog — but it’s successful and very busy right now. I haven’t had a day in the office all week long. It’s completely thrown off my regularContinue Reading

I think meal planning, compounded with cooking, compounded with cleaning, compounded with shopping, compounded with blogging, has just pushed me over the edge. Luckily, Harris Teeter offers an “Express Lane” service. You go online, select the products you wantContinue Reading

Getting myself into the kitchen the last few days has been a struggle. The weather has been more Fall-like than August-like; perfect for al fresco dining. Not having a deck or patio to sit on means we’ve gone out most of those nights to celebrate the beautiful weather. Going out means I haven’t been cooking.Continue Reading

Grilled Salmon with Raw Red Pepper Pesto

I’m not sure what better encapsulates what I want to eat during the Summer: something from the grill, a fresh pesto, or a dish that’s on the table in less than 15 minutes. Last night, I didn’t have to pick. Using jarred roasted red peppers (homemade would also work), this pesto comes together in seconds.Continue Reading

Prep Once, Eat Twice: Zucchini Vegetable Boats and Vegetable Pasta

I love to cook. I love going in the kitchen with a glass of wine and chopping, slicing, and sauteing to my hearts content. I love that after a day of dealing with work demands, the kitchen is my fortress; no one comes in and tells me what to do. But, sometimes life gets inContinue Reading

Yesterday I promised a delicious garlic scape pesto pasta. Let’s talk about garlic scapes for a moment. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen this image: Beautiful garlic scapes!

This recipe originally came from my Mom. Whether she found it or made it up, I’m not sure. I first made it last Summer and M and I were both kind of “Eh” on it. I decided to give it another try, making some tweaks to suit our taste buds, and man was it good.Continue Reading
