Two Stratas

November 16, 2011

I’m kind of embarrassed that as of yesterday, I’ve been at my current company three months and haven’t yet mentioned how awesome my co-workers are.  Before I started my job I was fortunate enough to meet a few of them through a good friend who already worked there.  Because of this I had a hunch […]

Blueberry & Chai-Scented Crumble Pancakes

July 7, 2011

I intended to take a break from blueberry laden recipes for awhile. Not that I don’t love this summery fruit, but variety is the spice of life, at least in my kitchen. But then Whole Foods had an amazing one day sale – $1.99 for a pint of organic blueberries. With a deal like that […]

May 27, 2011

I wasn’t going to post about this dish.  Not because it wasn’t good – it was – but because in all honesty, it’s just a slight variation on my Orange and Vanilla Bean Baked Oatmeal that I posted about a little over a year ago and the Plum Topped Baked Oatmeal I made back in […]

Mini Homemade Pop Tarts

July 21, 2010

I tell myself that now we’ve been hitting some blazing hot temperatures in Chicago that I will stop using my oven. I’ll cast pizza and cookies aside for no-bake desserts and crisp salads.  But really, who am I kidding.  I still bake, I just crank up the AC to make it tolerable.  Not good for […]

Baked Polenta with Apples, Gruyere, and Bacon

May 20, 2010

It is amazing what a difference time and patience really make. It’s been almost a month since I emotionally admitted I was struggling with my move. Now I feel like I am in an entirely different place; I am recognizing the little steps I have made toward making my new city feel like home, but […]
