Rigatoni with Sausage, Tomatoes and Cream


Just shy of a month, hubs and I are going on vacation. V.A.C.A.T.I.O.N. And not just any vacation, we’re meeting our family for a week at a beach house. In Florida. On the beach. By the ocean. On the sand. By the water. In Florida. I’m a smidge giddy. So, I have roughly 4 weeks […]

Linguine with Sardines. Don’t Gross Out.


I finally did it. After two weeks of teetering on ideas, I finally opened up the can of sardines, took a nervous peek and decided what to do with them. You guys, those suckers are not cute.

Quick and Divine


Our family is almost here, Aaron is inflating the blow up mattress and my house is spotless. Zen, people.

Are You Kidding?


Our summer garden produced an obnoxious amount of produce today. While I was tactfully telling the garden that Halloween was next weekend, Aaron was tactfully telling me to chill and enjoy the free food. Men. When I say obnoxious I’m talking about a zucchini the size of a canoe, enough scotch bonnet peppers for 87 […]
