Ginger-Pear Muffins

When we first moved to Boston, three-day weekends were our golden ticket to travel. We’d leave bright and early Saturday morning and wouldn’t return until late Monday night. Whether we were headed out to the mountains, or just enjoying ourselves around town, we’d often return to work and school in worse shape than we were […]

Another New Year

2011 was a year of many firsts for me. I got married, moved away from home, started a full time job, among many other things. 2012 was a much quieter year, though no less exciting. It has been a year of much enjoyment, complacency, and self-discovery. I was able to share my home with many […]

Candied Citrus Peels

Homemade food gifts have always been one of my favorite things to give (and receive) during the holiday season. My mom recently mailed me a special issue of Taste of Home magazine that solely focused on food gifts (she knows me all too well). After skimming through pages of masterfully crafted recipes, I began to […]

It just felt like the appropriate thing to do while watching election coverage. I mean, a sweet potato pie doesn’t really scream America. […]

A Month of Pie

November. A month of many things. Beards, turkeys, and tasty fall brews. Pilgrims, sweaters, and a maybe a pie or two. No other dessert says autumn quite like a pie. The plums, pears, apples, cranberries and gourds now filling grocery store bins are calling my name. The harvest is finished and it’s time to get […]

Moroccan Stew

‘Tis the season for pumpkin spiced lattes, fall roasted veggies, and warm bowls of soup. Fall is my favorite to explore new flavors and recipes. I’ve enjoyed putting twists on classic favorites such as butternut squash mac and cheese, roasted veggie pizza, and beer glazed sausage and apples. We haven’t even made it through October […]
