*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 FRESH CORN CAKES WITH GUACAMOLE

These little corn cakes are quite tasty – we’ve made them during the winter months with frozen corn but I have to say, made with fresh, just-picked, milky sweet corn, a little splash of kefir for a bit of tang, a little heat from green chilies and topped with a guacamole veggie fusion – these […]

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 […]

It’s February, it’s Valentine’s Day week, it’s cold outside and there’s snow on the ground – pretty typical here in the Midwest. What’s not typical here in the Midwest, at least in this house, is that The Professor and I began a new exercise program in January and . . . I can’t believe I’m […]

Today began rather early – 3:30am to be exact; one of those nights where sleep is restless as I process the tasks completed yesterday as well as those left undone. I dozed from 6-7:30 and then it was time to be an adult. ‘Please don’t make me adult today’, I said to The Professor. His […]

We’re in the throws of winter here in the Midwest – although we managed to dodge big blizzard, ‘Jonas’, of 2016 and for that I am grateful (I mean seriously, 40-inches of snow in 24 hours?!!). However, there is something to be said about being snowbound while the white stuff tumbles furiously from the sky – it […]

  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, […]

It is not lost on me that while I’m still enjoying the last dog days of summer – hello high humidity and 90-degree temperatures – I’m here with a recipe for pumpkin dip. And it’s the last day of August. And we haven’t even seen September, apples or pears. And I rather enjoy taking one […]

BURGER WITH GARLIC AIOLI AND SWEET POTATO CURLIES

The days get shorter, the sun sets a little earlier, the temps are slowly creeping into sweater or jacket weather, our garden is nearly spent and over the past couple of weeks, I’ve seen some pretty cute back-to-school photos in my social media feeds. But there’s one more final end-of-summer get-together before the onslaught of […]

GLUTEN-FREE PEACH DUTCH BABY

The Professor and I have been spending our summer working outdoors, digging in our garden beds and fighting off the critters for our share of the vegetables; so far it’s been critters who have reigned supreme but we’re replanting and hope we get to enjoy more than a handful of this year’s veggies. Such is […]

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 […]
