Mussels with Apple Cider and Bacon for One

February 7, 2012

Between The Patriots’ appearance in XLVI and my alma mater, Boston University’s, victory in the first round of The Beanpot tonight I’ve been finding myself thinking a bit about Boston lately.  Without a doubt my decision to move to Chicago nearly two years ago was a smart one, but it doesn’t mean I don’t find myself […]

Crab Salad BLT

January 18, 2012

Before Christmas I mentioned my love of holiday traditions, but I realized the other day that I forgot one – new year’s resolutions.  For a long time I never made any.  They seemed like a cliche and I assumed that even if I did make one, my follow through would be poor. Then in 2007 […]

Not at All Wordless Wednesday

November 9, 2011

Like cheese? Don’t forget to check out my fun giveaway from Il de France going on through Monday, November 14 at 11:59 pm. I had originally intended for this to be a Wordless Wednesday post. But being a verbose, often chatty person, that concept doesn’t work out well for me.  So instead I offer up […]

Brownie Cookies

August 1, 2011

Those who know me (and blog readers, I count you in that group) are well aware of the fact that I lack the stereotypical female sweet tooth. If you’re longing for someone who will split your cheesecake with you or persuade you to order the slice of apple pie, I’m probably not your girl. Generally […]

A few of my favorite things…

April 28, 2011

This year has brought new meaning to the phrase ‘April showers.’  There are only three days before April comes to a close and here in Chicago we’ve had 16 days of measurable rain, the most rainy days in Chicago since 1961. And when you consider that we had an additional three days of trace rain, it […]

Fun Discoveries at the 2011 International Home + Housewares Show

March 9, 2011

If you’ve been reading my blog for any stretch of time you’ve probably picked up on the fact that I have an unhealthy love for kitchen gadgets, even overcoming storage limitations and braving rainstorms to bring novel, new toys into my life.  It’s pretty much a given that if I spend even five minutes in a cooking […]

Chocolate Walnut Bread Pudding and Random, Random Thoughts

February 28, 2011

Maybe it’s my introspective nature.  Maybe it’s the fact I’m good blogger.  Or perhaps (most likely) it is some combination of the two.  But the fact of the matter is I spend a lot of time thinking about food – about the role it plays in my life, my likes and dislikes, and especially lately, […]

Cauliflower, Potato, and Cheese Soup

February 11, 2011

As when making any resolution or goal it’s not uncommon, after a little while to find yourself bumping up against obstacles. You know, one moment it’s smooth sailing and the next you hit the kind of road block that makes you want to give up or revert to your old ways. It usually comes just […]

Lamb Ragu or How I’m Learning to Embrace Winter

January 13, 2011

Originally I had an entirely different post written. And I deleted it. I was going to rant a bit about winter. And I’m sure given the recent string of flight delays and cancellations due to bad weather (and around the holidays no less) many of you would have related and nodded right along. But sometimes […]
