It Ain’t Easy Being Greens

March 6, 2014 Something I started doing a few years back (once we discovered how good of a cook I married) was trying new foods. Sometimes old ones, the ones I didn’t think I liked. Brussel’s Sprouts were one of my first rediscovered foods. I forget how he prepared them but I was a goner after the first […] {More...}

I’m Back?

March 5, 2014 Man, it’s been a while since I posted. Okay, so 13 months. Mostly I haven’t known what to post. Since going Keto last year, we mostly cook at home. And my husband does most of the cooking. I cook other people’s recipes, because I still need recipes. I am very envious of people who can […] {More...}

Date Night: Isabella’s Taverna & Tapas Bar

January 13, 2013 One of the things I love about downtown Frederick, MD is the dining. If the wait is a bit long at one place you’re bound to find something you like. This is where we found ourselves tonight. The place we intended to go had an hour wait and we were hungry and decided to come […] {More...}

Portuguese Kale Soup

November 25, 2012 A couple of months back I had lunch at Au Bon Pain and had their Portuguese Kale Soup. I’d never even heard of it before but the description listed chorizo, potatoes, and kale so I had to try it. It was delicious! Spicy and all-around flavorful. I couldn’t stop thinking about it but I couldn’t […] {More...}

Date Night: Los Toltecos

November 17, 2012 I haven’t done a “Date Night” post in ages. Mostly because we started cooking at home more so there were fabulous recipes to post. This post tonight? It needs to be done. {More...}

Lamb Stew

November 4, 2012 I’m so happy that I am still allowed to make Sunday dinners! Tonight was what I consider one of my best successes! Somehow we managed to skip right past fall and into Winter. There are three good things about this. My favorite three “s” words. Sweaters, soups, and stews. Mike and I have been on […] {More...}

SPAZ! lol

October 28, 2012 Holy crap I was a total spaz in the kitchen tonight! I was making Garlic-Rosemary steak and a Lima bean salad with herbs and red wine vinaigrette. {More...}
