*This post is sponsored by Sabra for National Hummus Day. All content and opinions are always my own. One would think that life without children means we have all the time in the world to bake, garden, read, lounge, visit family or other various and sundry activities; however, mid-life is proving to be full which […]

GLUTEN-FREE EGG SALAD BREAKFAST SANDWICH

If you’re like me, school is back in session and most mornings the alarm comes way earlier than you’d like, am I right? In my house, there are lunches to pack, showers to be had, workouts to be completed and breakfast to be eaten – and sometimes I’d like something more than a green smoothie, […]

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 […]

We made it through winter and as I look out my dining room window, my tulip are blooming, the iris stalks stand high, the peony stems stand straight and tall like soldiers – buds will soon follow! The rose bushes are awake, full with brand new green-red stalks and buds; the hydrangeas have been pruned […]

  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, […]

Twas the week of Christmas and all through the house . . . we’re racing around like a goose and a grouse . . . I asked The Professor what rhymes with ‘house’ and this is what he came up with – feel free to eyeroll in his direction. Regardless, I know we’re all in […]

FARMER’S RANCH COTTAGE PIE

We don’t make casseroles very often now but I do remember making them weekly when I was a single mom; they almost always included canned cream of chicken or mushroom soup, a pound of protein in the form of chicken or ground beef and a frozen vegetable – usually carrots or corn. Add a tossed green salad […]

QUESO DIP WITH PICO DE GALLO

Deflate-gate, the unexpected and sudden loss of a beloved member of our food community and the snowpocalypse that wasn’t (at least in New York) – it’s not a stretch to say that it’s been a roller-coaster couple of weeks. I had planned to post this recipe much sooner in the month but sometimes life happens and […]

The Professor has been in LA at a college-related workshop all week and while I’ve missed him, I also know he’s had a great time; so far, the group has visited the Dancing With Stars set to watch this week’s live performances as well as a trip to the DreamWorks studio. They weren’t allowed to take […]

CHILAQUILES CASSEROLE AND THE BIG POTLUCK

I will always hold a special place in my heart for The Big Potluck – it was the very first ‘conference’ I attended after launching Smith Bites; it was also the first time I’d traveled sans The Professor since we had married. I was nervous about actually meeting people who I’d only conversed with online […]
