I am going to go right ahead and pat myself on the back: I’ve outdone myself. Yesterday was a typical March day in New England. (Freezing rain, driving wind, general malaise.) To lift the spirits, I set up my crock-pot … Continue reading
Dear readers, I’m not sure what happened, but it seems this sweet recipe from February got lost in the crowd and never posted. I just came across it in my drafts folder. So, without further ado, here is a belated … Continue reading
It’s a rare thing that human beings can be neatly divvied up into two categories. But occasionally, situations arise where you either ARE, or you AREN’T. Runny eggs are just such a situation.
While my palate has evolved to the point one might consider “adventurous”, I still suffer from insecurity as a cook. There are certain kitchen tasks that have intimidated me, and that I’ve avoided at all costs. But no longer.

As you can see by Summer’s recent bridal shower update, it’s been a busy week for me. And I have a backlog of recipes to post!

If you don’t have shellfish allergies and you’re not too squeamish about dispatching your dinner before you eat it, I recommend treating yourself to a lobster dinner this weekend.
Another foot of snow is barreling towards us, and I once again retreat to my kitchen and my comfort food. Here is a quick and easy chicken parmesan recipe if you’re looking for a satisfying crowd pleaser.
