Have you ever wondered why parsnips are sold with a wax coating? Well let me tell you why. It’s to seal in moisture and increase the shelf life. Who knew!? Oh, you did? Oh. Well good thing I learned this so I didn’t end up serving chicken and parsnip wax soup to my husband and […]

I Like My Mondays Medium Rare

With rain on the way and the last episode of Dexter Season 4, I’d say Monday night is shaping up to be a nice one. Not to mention the grilled steak salads on our plate. And the clean yoga pants I’m wearing. Grilled Steak Salads: What it took for two famished adults: * 1 pound […]

This is a post from a long time ago from my Facebook food album.  Aaron’s cooking tonight, so I’ll have that story for you and more, tomorrow.  Whoa, that was very news reporter-y of me. I’m not sure if it’s from the harvested scotch bonnet pepper that we threw into this dish last second, or […]

We’re in the depths of Fall and nothing could be more crisp or colorful. I love my drives around town, especially when the sun rays split through tree branches and radiance bounces around from leaf to leaf, blinding me. Ok, I don’t love the blinding, but I love the color! Each year when the comfort […]
