spicy sausage & arugala naan pizza

10 weeks.  That’s all that is possibly left until we meet out little guy.  In some ways, 10 weeks still feels luxurious and distant and in other instances it feels like a blink away. Of course we are excited for the day to come but there is always so much on the “to-do” list.  Regardless […]

roasted chicken and root vegetables

The picture associated with this meal does not do it justice. I should have taken the shot before David carved the chicken, but the smells of the delicious meal had permeated the house for 90 minutes and we were ravenous to begin dinner. The chicken’s photo shoot was rushed but boy oh boy did we […]

spicy pork & mustard green soup

My cravings primarily come in two categories: salty and spicy. I find myself picking the spiciest item on the menu or adding drizzles of Sriracha sauce to everything (including my lunchtime salads!). This little dude has a “hot” tooth and I find myself giving in to it every day.  Thankfully,David already was a spicy food […]

paella & pregnant winters

The Winter is a beautiful season in New England. Snow covers the trees, streets, and yards of every home, while people huddle with loved ones and friends to stay warm. The sun shines brightly most days with clear blue skies, but the temperatures remind you that winter prefers for you to stay indoors or to […]

simple salmon

You can not make a more simple yet delicious salmon. It is one of our favorite meals because the prep time in practically non-existent and on a busy night it still warms the belly. 8oz wild salmon olive oil juice of half a lemon salt pepper garlic powder Rest the salmon on a medium-large piece […]

crock pot pulled pork slider

After a Skype call with my sister-in-law, Jessie, on Thursday night, I was left craving pulled pork sliders. While we had been chatting, she was whipping them up for her dinner with the littles. I could practically smell them through my laptop and they “smelled” so good. When making the grocery list for this coming […]

beef empanada

My History Department is pretty special. We come together not only for meetings on curriculum and lesson planning, but for dinners, and holiday and birthday celebrations.  During one of our off-campus gatherings, Yolanda hosted and made a number a delicious dishes.  This beef empanada dish was inspired by the one she served us! 1 lb […]

soy-braised short ribs with sugar snap peas

I love three day weekends!  It would be amazing to have one every weekend. Three days is just enough time to fully recharge one’s battery, check off items from the to-do list, and, for teachers, have time to grade without having to compromise on time with a loved one.  I had such a good weekend […]

vegetable chili with quinoa

On New Year’s Eve, David’s co-worker invited us to her home for an afternoon shindig. It was really nice to spend time with his work friends who are collectively hilarious and welcoming. While chatting around the kitchen island, we snacked and shared various stories.  A few soups were also served to keep everyone warm on […]

hearty basil minestrone soup with lentils

I have been a bit negligent on sharing recipes since we learned we were pregnant and the school year kicked into high gear.  While we have been eating, I haven’t been sharing. Recently, we prepared and ate Eat Live Run’s shredded beef enchilada recipe and it was delicious. But once the meal was prepared I […]
