eggplant burrata bruschetta

I saw something very offensive in a grocery store in DC a few weeks ago.   WHY in the middle of summer is my only option for basil a few old leaves in a plastic container?! I was furious. This is more like it. A+, Wegmans. I was able to work from home in Camillus…

pear & walnut salad

Of course I post an egg recipe and then go to the store to find that avian flu is wiping out the hen population and causing the price of eggs to skyrocket. Timing is everything. I also need to share with you this little tip. Making an omelette with leftover bean dip and some monterey jack…

sriracha honey baked chicken wings

I just spent my 3rd weekend in Rochester. This was weird given that I’ve lived here since June. I’ve been escaping to camp, or Baltimore, or home all summer. I subbed a Body Pump class on Saturday- that’s right, finally found a job teaching! I legitimately stalked the group fitness director at a gym like…

barley salad with nectarines and goat cheese

The GS visited Rochester this weekend for the annual arts and crafts festival/day drinking extravaganza. He also brought a German friend (Jan- pronounced like Yan) that he met while studying abroad, and Jan’s friend Max.

hot taco dip

Happy New Year’s Eve Eve! I must say, NYE has never been my favorite holiday. There’s always so much hype and planning that goes into it, and somehow it never ends up being as fun or exciting as you expect. Probably the most exciting thing I’ve ever done for New Year’s was the Full Moon…

buffalo cauliflower bites

Before I begin, I have to give Kelly credit for finding this recipe on Pinterest. If I give her credit later, she’ll start reading the post and then I’ll get a text message “that buffalo cauliflower you blogged about was MY IDEA.” So, here it is. Thank you, Almighty Kelly, for believing in vegetables as…
