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 […]
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 […]
Aside from the 2 pounds of dehydrated zucchini chips that came from the blimp of a zucchini, Aaron was bit by the baking bug and had a loaf of warm zucchini bread fresh out of the oven by the time I returned from an errand. Martha, who is this man and what have you done […]

When I say obnoxious I’m talking about a zucchini the size of a canoe, enough scotch bonnet peppers for 87 […]

It’s always so nice to come home after a long day to find my husband busily stirring around the kitchen, various spice jars open, the rice cooker buzzing away and a simmering pot on the stove releasing scents of comfort. Of home. Of me not having to lift a finger. Tears I tell you. […]
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.

Each year when the comfort […]
