Blueberry Lemon Bundt Cake

I’m not much for Hollywood award shows, but I’m not gonna lie, I love the Academy Awards. I love the spectacle of it, the gowns, the speeches, the whole shebang. I was invited to an Academy Awards party at a friends house this Sunday and ...

Quinoa Pasta with Kale and Lemon

No, I’m not going gluten-free. I’m lucky that I don’t seem to have any issues with eating gluten, but I do eat an awful lot of pasta and am looking to branch out a little. I recently bought some quinoa pasta out of curiosity and ...

Kale, Apple, and Ginger Smoothie

Today is the day – I finally start school! I’m weirdly nervous even though all I really have to do on the first day is show up. As much as I enjoyed my long break, I definitely thrive on routine so I’m happy to get started. Lately, ...

Lemon Glazed Cookies

So, Mama’s sportin’ a new tattoo these days that reads, “I never met a cookie I didn’t like!”. Anyone who knows me, know’s that that’s true. In some circles I’m known as the Countess of Cookies or the ...

Lemon Pine Nut Biscotti

For years I was the proud owner of a 1980′s flip phone.  My life was good, and it was simple.  I could make calls and receive calls, and I lived in the moment. I wasn’t distracted by my electronic device like the masses of people ...

Crispy Flattened Potatoes with Celery Leaves and Lemon

Our meals have been a little random lately. Instead of planning what will go with what, we often cook a bunch of simple sides and eat them all together. We’ve been making these crispy flattened potatoes at least once a week with all of the ...

Pasta with Radishes and Lemony Breadcrumbs

Whole Wheat Pasta with Arugula, Lemon, and Walnuts

Before I get to this pasta, I have some news to share… Matt got into medical school! He’ll be starting at Cornell in the fall, which means we’re moving back to NYC in August. As much as I’ll miss Boston, I didn’t feel ...

Sauteed Baby Spinach with Pine Nuts and Raisins

Variations of spinach with pine nuts and raisins can be found on most Spanish tapas menus these days. While it’s always a good combination, it never particularly excited me until I tried the version at Kika Tapas last summer. The key to their ...

Shredded Brussels Sprout Salad with Warm Lemon-Chili Vinaigrette

I’m not a big salad eater. That said, I’ve had some root vegetable and hearty green based salads out recently that have started to change my mind. This shredded brussels sprout salad was born yesterday when I randomly found myself ...

Mushroom Bolognese with Gremolata

While I’m usually a huge fan of cooking in for Valentine’s Day, Matt and I went to one of our favorite restaurants, Posto, last Friday for a belated Valentine’s meal. We’ve been making an effort to eat out less lately, so ...

Cranberry Lemon Bundt Cake

I had neglected the blog recently as my attention had been directed elsewhere in the past few weeks. I have just returned from a trip back east where I attended my high school reunion, and boy, was it a good time. The last time I saw many of these ...

Kale Salad with Radishes, Lemon, and Parmesan

Sometimes the simplest foods are the best. Matt and I were blown away by the kale salad we tried at City House in Nashville, and our recreation of it has been in our repertoire ever since. The original salad of kale and thinly sliced radishes was ...

Olive Oil Cookies with Lemon & Thyme

I do believe I’ve had a love-affair with cookies my whole life.  Friends who knew me growing up can attest to the fact that I ate cookies for breakfast most days. Well why not. Back in the day I could plow through bags of Oreo’s, Mallowmars and ...

Thyme Lemonade

As I was driving down the main thoroughfare in my community today, I spotted a group of kids, I would say about 10 or 11 years old, yelling and waving frantically at me to stop.  They had set up a lemonade stand with an array of handrawn signs, on ...
