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...}

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...}

So I consider myself half Irish. Considering I have pale skin, blue eyes, and […] {More...}

Miso-Glazed Salmon with Bok Choy

Food, None
January 10, 2012 My wonderful husband surprised me with this dish tonight for dinner. Fan-freaking-tastic. Serves 4, you can do this with a broiler or on the grill. If sodium is a concern, I’d probably not try this one. {More...}

Thank You, Chef Voltaggio

November 5, 2011 If you have a bucket list, you need to add eating at Volt Restaurant in downtown Frederick, MD to the top of it. If you don’t have a bucket list, start one. Now. And add eating at Volt to the top of it. I’ll give you a couple of minutes to finish that up. {More...}

Date Night: Red Robin Gourmet Burgers

September 1, 2011 Okay. So we love Red Robin. We go there at least once a week. Fun, fast, good…Friendly environment and not wildly expensive. Not to mention the never-ending steak fries. Ah, the steak fries. Yum, indeed. {More...}
