The last time I saw my friend Annette from college we went to this great french cafe called Cafe Luluc. It’s close by in Cobble Hill and typically their brunch line on weekends is out the door. They had (have?) … Continue reading
I got this bad boy from Men’s Health. Yes, I know. I’m a woman. So?
My lasagna never tasted as good as what you could get in a restaurant and often it was separatist (not politically: it didn’t meld together) and too wet. Normally when I cook I am all about creativity and playing with … Continue reading
I made this for my sweetie Friday night. He ran a Rock N’ Roll 10K (select 2012 and then type in his name to see pics) Saturday morning and requested this favorite in order to carb up. I used whole wheat … Continue reading
I’m sorry but Kraft just doesn’t cut it. This kind of dish makes you happy it’s raining or snowing and you are bundled up inside. Or maybe it’s just a random Sunday and you’re watching five episodes of the Sopranos. … Continue reading

It doesn’t happen often, but this past weekend my sister and I had the opportunity to cook dinner together in my kitchen. She’s visiting home for the weekend, and acting as Matron of Honor extraordinaire for me. She suggested a … Continue reading
I just wanted to quickly plug a new pasta sauce I tried and loved.
I made this a week ago for our pasta-themed Monday nights – delicious! This is definitely a recipe I will be using again. It also was my FIRST time using a broiler.
