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 […]

spinach & fruit salad

I have decided that the best way to beat the winter blues is by making summertime lunches. With another snow storm approaching, we have decided to focus on our countdown to our “babymoon” in 18 days!! In just a little over two weeks, we will be packing our suitcases full of shorts, bathing suits, and […]

fresh bruschetta

On snow days, I am all about comfort food. Give me macaroni and cheese, meatloaf, or a hot minestrone soup. My belly demands the warm comfort of rich, savory foods. This last storm though was a little different. While David shoveled us out of almost twelve inches of snow, I diced up some tomatoes tossed […]

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 […]

elr’s spicy thai sprimp skillet

We were all set to make meatloaf last night. I had been dreaming about that hefty loaf of meat for a week. David was on board and all that was needed were the ingredients. Then browsing through the list of blogs that I follow I saw eat, live, run’s latest culinary post. The image of […]

eric’s chicken noodle soup

On Saturday afternoon, we invited our college friends over for a turkey dinner potluck. It was so much fun. Of course, I loved being with everyone and sharing a meal around the table together as a family. And, the food was quite delicious as well. We prepared the turkey, stuffing, and gravy and each friend […]

butternut squash ravioli w/ browned butter, sage, & balsamic reduction

It is officially Fall in New England. The telltale signs are clearly present: cooler temperatures, an earlier sunset, turning leaves on trees and smalls piles of them on the ground, pumpkins on porches, people rushing by with pumpkin spiced lattes wearing sweaters, flannel, scarves, and, my favorite, the puffy vest! It is my absolutely favorite […]
