I was looking over my blog today and I could swear I heard echoes… Like when you walk into an abandoned building and you can hear every little sound your shoes make, the creaking of old floors, wind whistling in the rafters… oh goodness, it hasn’t been that long 😉 And I have a marvelous […]

I am of the opinion that quiche is a breakfast food. That said, I often serve it for dinner. I love breakfast for dinner, in fact it would not be uncommon to see pancakes or a scramble with toast served for an evening meal in my home. My mom and I constantly disagree about quiche […]

I am very excited to share this recipe with you. It looks like an unassuming, humble veggie stir fry though it is anything but. The spicy sweetness of the sauce is completely unexpected, and the whole dish has a savory full flavor that is almost addicting. The ingredients can be fairly flexible, depending on what […]

I’m still here!! Barely… It has been a very interesting week. My husband is a welder/construction worker, so he doesn’t get a whole lot of time at home. I had just gotten used to him working 6 days a week, 10 hours a day when suddenly he decided to take some vacation time and he […]

I received zucchini and summer squash in my produce box once again, for what seems like the millionth time. I’m not complaining, really… I just am having to start cooking outside my comfort zone in order to keep things new and interesting. I have never cooked or even tasted Egyptian food before, but when I […]

Whenever I am planning a move (either across town or across several states), I always find myself putting organizing and packing off till the last minute. I know that I need to get it done sooner rather than later, but I am not very good at listening to my own advice. So now, with less […]

Sometimes I feel like my life is a series of food experiences as I always associate specific memories and life events with what I ate at the time. I think it began when I was little, because my mom always made a really big deal of our birthdays. We got to eat whatever we wanted […]

I am incredibly honored to be nominated for this really fun award by the lovely Larice of Feeding Your Beauty. She has an amazing blog with delightful recipes and incredible pictures. I must admit I get a tad jealous of her photos, her staging and lighting is beautiful. If you want to explore some great […]
