We managed to make it through The Professor’s first year of teaching at a new university – but wow, this year has sped by super fast!! He’ll continue to teach this summer but with a lighter student load and shorter days which means we’ll have more time for the garden and it also means we […]

  One last post for 2015; every year I get to the end of December and marvel at how fast the year sped by and then I scroll through my Instagram feed smiling at all the wonderful moments The Professor and I have experienced. Each year has brought us new adventures, new travel, new friends, […]

Well hello there! The Professor and I have been traveling these past six weeks on a summer abroad session with 14 college students to Italy; it was exciting, it was fun, it was a learning experience and if I’m being honest, it was, at times, bone-tired exhausting. But we’re back and good Lord, July 4th […]

I love a great chip, don’t you? Potato chips, veggie chips, corn chips and tortilla chips. Chips with ridges, kettle-cooked, salt and vinegar, black pepper, nacho-cheese and barbecued – I have enjoyed my fair share of chips and dips over the years.

It all started with meatballs and a piece written by an extroverted freelance writer with a desire to gather friends, family and strangers around her table and to share food and build community. ‘Friday Night Meatballs‘ became a movement of sorts and Facebook exploded with people who wanted to create their own Friday Night experiences. We really liked the concept too and while […]

It’s been a wonderful summer, maybe the best one we’ve had yet, I’m not really sure; life is always full of adventure and good things with The Professor and I count myself very lucky to have him as my life partner. Our travel schedule has been jam-packed traversing to both coasts, to Italy and back […]

The Professor and I have done our fair share of entertaining; we don’t as much anymore as our family has aged, college life has spread us about and schedules seem to be busier than ever. And even though there aren’t as many people sitting at our table as often, a couple of rules remain the […]

GLUTEN-FREE TRIPLE-THREAT CHOCOLATE SQUARES

Januarys can be rather dull; while September ushers in bushels of apples, cider and doughnuts, October pays homage to the pumpkin. November we plan menus around family and turkeys (albeit there are times when one cannot make a distinction between the two) and December conversations center around words like: ho-ho-ho, hanukkah, cookie, celebration, party, gifts […]

While I love a great pastry for breakfast and occasionally dessert, when it comes to snacks, I tend to land on the side of salty. And while there are a plethora of cookbooks on the market for all things sugary and sweet, the field is much smaller when it comes to savory. Salty Snacks by […]

[grooveshark width=”250″ height=”40″ id=”36133273″ style=”metal”] Musical pairing – Multiply by Jamie Lidell There are two kinds of ‘beet’ camp – lover or hater . . . there just doesn’t appear to be an ‘in between’ . . . and we fall squarely in the lover camp. I must admit that eating ‘pickled’ or ‘sweet’ from […]
