charcuterie.

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.

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?

So this is a great recipe for a Saturday morning, when you want your house to … Continue reading Healing Chicken Soup.

If you’ve ever watched someone serve Vietnamese Pho, there’s this really cool technique they use. It’s a trick that allows the veggies to stay crunchy, and gives a super fresh flavor to everything.

Celebrate Every Single Day.

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.

Tuna Stuffed Peppers.

All you need is tuna, peppers, some kind of soft cheese, fresh spinach, and hot sauce! It’s not even worth … Continue reading Tuna Stuffed Peppers.
