Can’t pronounce it? That’s okay. As long as you know what it is. And as long as you keep it in your rotation for entertaining, or even just a random weeknight. I’ll be honest ~ I’ve always had trouble plating this meat, cheese, and condiment platter. It’s supposed to be plentiful, colorful, and artistic. I should be a natural at this! I love to cook, … Continue reading charcuterie.
Friends, it has been SO long. I haven’t been cooking much, but I certainly have been eating. Who is making all my meals? I honestly can’t tell you.

I loved the food, I loved the way I looked, I loved the energy … Continue reading HELLO!
Happy Mother’s Day to all you mothers out there! And that means anyone who has ever “mothered” another living thing. That should cover just about all of us, right? I “mothered” my mother this weekend, and my mother-in-law as well. I made all sorts of yummy dishes and tried to pamper them as much as possible.

Just heat up and pour over fresh spinach. … Continue reading egg roll in a bowl!
No noodles needed… If you’re desperate for noodles, though, don’t forget about spiralized zucchini or sweet potato. Or add noodles! I judge not, lest I be judged! This soup starts with a whole chicken, but you can use pieces if you’d like. We’re making the broth and all, folks. So this is a great recipe for a Saturday morning, when you want your house to … Continue reading Healing Chicken Soup.

When I was young, my mom always made sure we used the nice dishes on certain random nights of the week, and definitely on Sundays. There were these little tiny “grape juice goblets” that I now know are for sherry, or some kind of cordial. I loved all these things, and I still do. Drinking healthy feels quite limited, doesn’t it? Let’s see, there’s water, … Continue reading Celebrate Every Single Day.
