corn & poblano wrap

This is not an adequate title for all the lovely things in this wrap. It is, however, what the Real Deal Deli in Dedham, MA called the wrap which inspired this creation. I had this for lunch one day about a month ago when I was training in Massachusetts and I loooooved it. It’s always…

slow cooker pulled pork

I have spent the entire summer traveling all over the country every week, and somehow the only “famous” person I’ve seen was Jim Boeheim. And that includes two trips to California. This doesn’t seem fair. When I was in Phoenix, I had a chatty Lyft driver (not the creepy one who picked me up from…

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…

slow scrambled egg sandwich

Today I’m writing from Atlanta! HOT-Lanta! Actually I haven’t been outside yet today and it’s freezing in my hotel room, but it was hot yesterday. I had a somewhat uneventful trip down here, which was a welcome change from my travel experience to Iowa last week. We left Baltimore late, so I missed my connecting…

grilled shrimp tacos

Happy Belated Mother’s Day! I have so many wonderful moms in my life, but I especially love the one who physically gave birth to me. I’m glad I was able to spend the day with her. Or, most of the day. Mother’s Day is the only time of the year where women are allowed to tee off…

sweet potato sausage egg stack

I just typed out a whole post about how this recipe was accidentally Paleo, even though I’m not on the Paleo diet and have no interest in being on the Paleo diet. Then I Google’d the Paleo diet, and realized that I was wrong about what exactly qualifies as Paleo. This is what happens when…

15 minute spaghetti squash

I’m feeling a little bit like my life is in shambles right now, so I’m going to teach you how to make a healthy dinner in the microwave! I’ve made spaghetti squash before, but I stuck it in the oven which takes foreeeever. I lack patience. WAIT. I just looked up the last time I blogged…

beef & barley stew

Another round of frozen soup to warm your soul! This whole freezer meal thing came at a very opportune time because unfortunately the GS broke his hand last weekend, and is having surgery this week. I went down to visit this weekend (with about 15 pounds of frozen soup in tow) and his hand legitimately…

turkey florentine soup

Your leftover turkey is already gone, isn’t it? Damn. Again, my timing is the worst. We typically have 8 million people for Thanksgiving (okay, like 50), but this year was a much smaller affair with a meager 24 joining us for dinner. We did a 21 pound turkey (which I slathered with a homemade compound…

how to: make your own sriracha

Otherwise known as… “How to: Turn your one bedroom apartment into an eye-watering, nasal-passage-opening vortex.” “How to: Mask the smell of marijuana leeching over from your disgusting next door neighbors.” I hope I made their eyes water, too. “How to: Make your hands feel like they’ve been doused in Icy Hot.” Seriously. Please wear gloves….
