The party favors might be gone (in just under an hour all 100 notepads were spoken for!) but I’ve still got plenty of delicious goodies to share. The centerpiece of our little party was...

Blog Birthday Dessert Table

Happy Birthday, Little Blog!

Five years. I’ve been filling this space with words and pictures for five years now. That’s like, 42 in blog years. We’ve come a long way since that very first post. Five years, 588...

Spicy Thai Steak

Spicy Thai Steak

I’ve made it my goal to sift through my skyscraper of food magazines. The ever-growing pile that sits in our living room. It had been nicely arranged on the shelf, but when my dishes...

OK, I give in. Y’all want healthy, so I’ll give you healthy. For a little while at least. But next week? Let’s just say next week I have a different kind of cake in...

The Best of 2011

Another year, come and gone. I always take this time to reflect on the past year, all the wonderful things I’ve seen, done, and eaten. Ok, mostly eaten. Don’t say I’m not the only...

Farro Risotto with Acorn Squash and Kale

Farro Risotto with Acorn Squash and Kale

Farro isn’t something we’d cooked with before. Arborio, barley, bulgar, quinoa… all grains with regular shelf space in our pantry. But farro was a new one. In fact I had to spell it out...
