I heart Well* and oatmeal. Time was, the only thing that could get me out of bed in the morning was the thought of my coffee. Every morning, I require 3-4 cups of black, black joe which I have been known to guzzle. Now that I work at an Elementary School and wake up a lot Read more…

I cannot believe it took me several months to break out my new spiralizer. It is so easy to use, and the dinner we ended up enjoying was a classic example of my favorite kind of weeknight cooking- quick and fresh while also incorporating ready to go items from my freezer. Here is the fresh part: Read more…

I’m not sure if there is any other dish that so exemplifies both over-the-top indulgence and down-home goodness. A modern-day terrine? Perhaps, especially when you try the recipe that was featured in the most recent issue of Cook’s Country Magazine.

I am not much of a sports fan, but I love my cousins and was excited to visit with them to watch the Superbowl this year. The nachos usually associated with this annual American event have so much potential to be so delicious, but are often oily, salty and greeeea-zy in execution.  I love cooking Read more…

  I am making homemade granola today and you could be, too, if you try out my simple recipe. I love the flavor combination of herbs and tart, sweet dried fruit. The more fruit and nuts you add, the more beautiful it looks- in a glass mason jar, it makes a lovely present. I gave Read more…

“YANKEE STADIUM!” The butcher at Fairway pronounced with pride as he displayed the gorgeous 13-rib crown pork roast that I had ordered for this year’s Pan Chance. What is this “Pan Chance,” you ask?
