Sweet and Sour Pork and Mushroom Noodle Bowls

By |May 7th, 2014|

One thing that we have in abundance in our house is noodles.

All different kinds of them too: udon, soba, beanthread, sweet potato, rice, egg…how did I accumulate so many freakin’ kinds of noodles?!?!  Who knew you could make noodles out of all those things anyway?

I’m pretty sure I’ll get a strange look when we show […]

Slow Cooker Mexican Chicken and Beans

By |March 10th, 2014|

I’m ba-aaack!

Sorry for the delay in returning to this humble little space, but I got jet lag from this trip like nobody’s business.  While I usually transition very well after long flights, I think the nature of my trip just left me exhausted when I came home.  You might have noticed that my only trip […]

Slow Cooker Coconut Curried Beef

By |February 10th, 2014|

I have definitely been pushing my slow cooker into overdrive this winter.

Usually, I haul it out from its long-term storage spot a few times a year, but with all the snow we’ve had, compounded with arctic temperatures and general weather craziness, I’ve found myself working from home (my car + snow = nothing good) and […]

Asian Sloppy Joe Sliders

House hunting during the winter is a real drag.

If the house has already been vacated, it’s super cold inside and I am seriously put off at the request to remove my shoes and view the house with hardwood floors and tiling in my socks.  My frozen feet will never forgive those realtors.   Plus, you can […]

Beef Shank and Mushroom Ragu

By |January 20th, 2014|

I love me a good ragu.

Whenever we go out for Italian in the North End, I always look for a ragu on the menu.  There’s just something about that slow braised meat sauce that makes me so very happy.  I will pick a ragu over a cream based sauce any day.  For me, there’s absolutely […]

Zingy Chipotle Chicken Chili

By |January 13th, 2014|

This past weekend I lived in sweatpants.

I didn’t even glance towards my jewelry box, and deodorant was decidedly optional.  (It’s not like I’m doing heavy labor in my sweatpants…don’t judge.)

Ok, maybe you didn’t need to know about my lazy weekend grooming habits, but it is all part of the tapestry I’m weaving, the picture I’m […]

Hearty Chicken Paprika Stew

By |December 16th, 2013|

Last night as I was drifting off to sleep, I wish I had soft, fluffy thoughts of powdery snow, but instead, I was serenaded by various engines and car tires struggling to find purchase while driving up our horrendously plowed street.  And by horrendous, I mean virtually unplowed.

All I could think about was the hope […]
