I drove back to New York to spend the 4th with my parents, and like any other trip home, it involves a lot of cooking, baking, grilling and cocktails. We picked sour cherries and strawberries from a local fruit farm, and made a lovely pie, and this deliciously easy strawberry shortcake.
It’s hard to believe that four years ago today, I was sitting at my computer in Columbus writing up this same recipe, and posting my first ever post. I don’t typically like to get corny or sentimental on the blog, but everything kind of fell perfectly into place, so why the hell not? Please just […]
I hope everyone had a nice Father’s Day weekend. Mike has been traveling so Aida and I have been cleaning and organizing the new place, going to the park, and binge watching entourage like it’s nobody’s business.
I love fajitas in the summer. It’s a quick, low fuss meal that can be thrown on […]
So, if you haven’t heard already, Chipotle released their Guac recipe last month. How awesome is that?!? I’ve probably made it about five times now. Even when half of my kitchen was boxed up, ready to move, I figured out how to make due for homemade guac. I’ve always been a huge fan of […]
I made these a few weeks ago, but I’m just getting around to posting them now. The past few weeks have been nothing but packing and unpacking. We’re still getting organized at the new place, and handing in the keys at the old place tomorrow. I’m looking forward to getting back to less hectic […]
A lot has happened since my last post. We’re moving to a new apartment in about two weeks, and I’m pretty excited.

I am not a pink kind of girl, but I will make an exception for this cake because the light pink hue is all natural. And I love strawberries.
This cake is surprisingly made with frozen strawberries, so it easy to enjoy any time of the year. The frozen berries are simply thawed and […]
Pork stew isn’t nearly as popular as beef stew and it’s a shame; slowly stewed pork becomes meltingly tender and packed with flavor. In this stew, pork, hard cider, onions and potatoes come together to make a comforting fall or winter stew.
For the hard cider, pick a dry or balanced […]
Lentils are budget-friendly, and good for you – they are packed with protein, fiber and provide many other health benefits. My grandmother made lentil soup for us growing up all the time. She makes hers simply with lentils, onion, carrots, celery, garlic and tomato, but it is always hearty, comforting, and filling. My sister and […]
Much to my disappointment, we haven’t had a lot of snow here this winter. So when I woke up to five inches of snow, I loaded Aida into the car, picked up some coffee, and went to a nearby park to enjoy the calm and quiet.
Orange and chocolate are one of […]
