southwestern stuffed sweet potatoes

In keeping with my new year’s resolution to be more fun, I went out both nights this weekend. WILD. On Friday I wore one of the shirts I made because I felt like showing off my handiwork/justifying all the time I’ve spent on my sewing machine. This girl came up to me and asked me…

fiesta potatoes

I’m not really sure what to call this dish. The GS and I were trying to decide what to eat for breakfast a few weekends ago (sometimes I give up my Raisin Bran routine on Sundays), and we were attempting to break the routine of bagels at THB in Canton. He insisted that he had…

black bean sweet potato & kale quesadillas

It seems only fitting that my last weekend as a 23 year old was spent mostly cooped up in my basement with my sewing machine. Seriously, my newest addiction. In the past three weeks I’ve made the GS’ t-shirt quilt, a dress, a skirt, a top, and two sets of scrubs. I have to wear…

warm potato salad on the grill

Hey friends, I’m on vacation! I arrived in Camillus on Friday and have been bouncing around Rochester/Cayuga Lake/Ithaca and haven’t had internet access to blog. As a matter of fact I saw my blog buddy Sheila on Saturday for the first time in, seriously, 8 months (!!) when I drove her to Rochester for Park…

potato & leek soup

It’s weird to think that in a few short weeks, representatives from HGTV will be coming to my house to tell me that I won the 2013 Dream Home. I’ll be coincidentally wearing my Kiawah t-shirt, and they’ll tell me that they’re throwing in an even bigger cash prize because I’m a struggling grad student….

narragansett succotash and honey dijon potatoes

Tomorrow night the GS is taking me to a work function at the French Embassy. Faaaancy schmancy. I’m really excited even though I’ll probably be the only person that doesn’t speak any French. Oh sorry, I can say “Bon jour, je m’apelle Erin.” In a really horrendous non-accent. And then I’m done. It’s a wine…

garlic mashed potatoes and three bean salad

I’m giving you two sides in one post! Therefore, it seems only appropriate to talk about the debate. I know it was a few days ago, but I wanted to give people time to simmer down a bit. I am, admittedly, somewhat politically unaware. But I did watch the debate and I have several observations….

cheesy potatoes

Hello friends. Like Sheila, I am also experiencing a week in isolation. I came back to Salty Balty for our alumni weekend, but my classes don’t actually start until next Monday. So this week while Molly and Kelly are at work during the day, I’m sleeping for 12 hours a night, drinking too much coffee,…
