My doctor wants me to lose a significant amount of weight for potential-baby-drug related reasons that I won’t go into detail on.  We joined the Y – Don has been going to spin classes and loving them, and I’m on the cardio machines nearly every day – and I sat down to revamp my meal […]

Trying to get organized, and do better at meal planning. Just cleaned out the freezer and reorganized it (still looks messy, though – drawer freezers are not my favorite for primary use – can’t wait to get a big standing freezer and just use the drawer one for small stuff). Here’s everything in my freezer […]



Claire at Cookthink posted a great tip a while ago — how to re-grow your scallions.  I must confess that both Don and I were skeptical; it couldn’t possibly be that easy!  We go through scallions like nobody’s business around here.  They go in salads, mashed potatoes, pad thai (mmmm pad thai), and get sprinkled […]

Have you been to your local Asian supermarket lately? Or, like, ever? Because if not, you should go. I’m lucky; I’ve got one of the biggest Asian markets in the area less than ten minutes away. And yet, for some reason, I never go there. I really should — in addition to a great variety […]

No time to talk.  Swamped with work.  Wouldn’t be able to come up with words to express the fantasticness of these muffins anyway.  Please to enjoy recipe.

Boy, I suck at this whole regular posting thing.  In my defense, an awful lot of exciting things are happening at my house right now.  But I know, it’s no real excuse.  Fortunately for you, I’ve got a place you can go where somebody IS posting regularly — it’s my mom’s new food blog, Perpetual […]

We go through a lot of eggs around here. Every so often, when I’m going through the grocery checkout with my ‘buy one get one free’ set of 18-packs of eggs, I feel a little awkward. The cashier probably assumes I’m feeding a big family, but I know that it’s just the two of us. […]

Summer is definitely the best season for lazy cooks. So long as they’re lazy cooks who like produce, anyway. And guess who fits into that category? Yeah. Don’s mother’s tomatoes were dinner a couple of nights ago, in the form of this fast and simple bruschetta. A few minutes of chopping beats standing over the […]
