copycat live med salad

Yesterday was Kelly and Aaron’s 1 year wedding anniversary! After much careful observation while living with them over the past year, I’ve concluded that they are ready to live alone. Just the two of them, with no tenant. So I’m moving out! It will be a big step for their marriage to lose me, but I’m…

zucchini lasagna

Holy moly I’ve let this get away from me. Work has been INSANE and therefore I haven’t been cooking anything new. Going to all my old standby recipes, or eating cereal for dinner. Shit happens. Over the 4th we went to Rhode Island to get some R&R and hang with the GS’ family. I always…

zoodle carbonara

I would be remiss if I didn’t mention my sadness over Alan Rickman’s passing last week. While I of course feel that the Harry Potter movies never did justice to the books, I’ve always loved Alan Rickman. He loved the books in real life and had such respect for JK Rowling, and I thought he…

kale salad with roasted acorn squash

How did I make it through Halloween without eating a single fun-size (or large, which is the true definition of “fun” size) candy bar?! I feel ashamed. In spite of eating zero candy, I’ve been away the last four weekends and feel like my food equilibrium is completely off. This is the problem from eating…

spaghetti with butternut and sage

Allow me to introduce you to the greatest road trip game of all time. The GS and I did a LOT of driving over the last 2 weeks, between heading to Syracuse for my grandma’s 90th birthday party (#AllHaleTheQueen) and then to Long Island for a wedding this weekend, we clocked in close to 20…

seared salmon with forbidden rice

My little buddy Kev is sick! They think he might have mono. Instead of being a cliche big sister and making the “who have you been kissing??” joke, I made a more productive suggestion for all this school time he’s missing. So rude. Luckily now I have a NEW BROTHER (in-law) who returned from his…

lightened up hash browns

…for dinner. At least for me it was dinner. I almost never eat eggs for breakfast, but I would say I do eggs for dinner at least 2-3 nights a week. Omelette, sunny side up over sauteed spinach, or two fried eggs with toast and a bowl of peas. Oh, is that last one not…

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…

zucchini fritters

So many big things happened this week! I gave my last presentation and handed in my last paper EVER. I finished another t-shirt quilt for a friend, this one is all Loyola themed so obviously I’m obsessed. I met my research mentor’s new baby, Charlotte Rose, and she’s so adorable. I got my white coat!…

farro-stuffed acorn squash

I don’t know about you all, but I haven’t been doing much cooking in the past week. I felt highly under-utilized on Thanksgiving. We had about 45 people over but basically all the food got brought in. I seasoned the two turkeys we made- that was IT. The other two turkeys, the desserts, pretzel jello,…
