whole wheat Greek flatbreads

I talk about a whole lot of nothing in these blog posts. Somehow I failed to mention (almost four months ago) when I found out that I’ll be moving back to the CNY in June to do my fourth year residency at the University of Rochester Medical Center. I think it’s somewhat ironic that I…

celery & blue cheese slaw

Even though football season is over, I’m still sharing game day food with you because we have the OLYMPICS. I’m not as big on the winter Olympics as summer (hello gymnastics), but I do like to flip it on every now and then. The other night I watched snowboard cross which was terrifying to me…

lightened up spinach & artichoke dip

I had to laugh yesterday when I saw that Sheila had posted spinach and artichoke dip. Because I, too, had just made one with intent to blog. It reminded me of high school when we would show up wearing matching outfits. And not just on the days when we were wearing swim team or golf…

buffalo chicken pull-apart bread

What are you asking Santa for this year? Kevin, in case you’re wondering, is looking for a Kindle Fire and Beats by Dre headphones. His justification is that he’ll start reading more if he gets a Kindle, and will start listening to the Rocky soundtrack before his basketball games if he gets $300 headphones. I’m…

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…

three cheese & arugula flatbread

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July! I spent the long weekend in Rhode Island meeting the majority of the GS’s family, and therefore withholding many of my natural instincts. Just kidding, I was myself minus some of the compulsive sarcasm. It was absolutely beautiful there. There was a lot of sunning and…

apple dip

One of my favorite things about my mom is that she speaks mainly in idioms. When someone says something mean, “Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never hurt me.” When I’m waiting to hear about a job, “The squeaky wheel gets the oil!” When we were complaining about cleaning the house…

river wraps

With the Olympics starting and all this Phelps/Lochte rivalry, it’s made me start to miss swimming. I think Sheila and/or myself have mentioned several times that we were on the swim team in high school. Senior year, though, we both had the unfortunate circumstance of being injured. She, with shoulder problems. Me, with an ovarian…

bruschetta

Things I’ve learned in the kitchen recently: 1) A jumbled plate of zucchini casserole, a plain black bean burger sans bun, and tomato slices does not a dinner make. 2) Using unbleached all purpose flour in a recipe for French bread that specifically calls for bread flour? Bad idea. A big chunk went in the trash can after…

whole wheat cinnamon raisin walnut bread

Last weekend was a crazy one of movin’ and shakin’. Emphasis on the movin’, not so much on the shakin’. Molly moved back to Philadelphia for an awesome job, so our friend Meghan moved in! Yay! I helped her move stuff on Friday, and we ended up rearranging our entire first floor. Then I helped…
