Remember last weekend when my high school BFF came through town? Well, on their way home from vacation they dropped in one more night, for good measure.

You’re probably reading the title of this post, rubbing your eyes, re-reading it and thinking, “The girl’s gawn coo-coo. Who eats chili IN AUGUST?” Well hold on now! I need to explain something. For the most part of yesterday, it felt like fall. Delicious, crisp, I-can-go-outside-and-not-die-from-the-heat fall. The temperatures stayed right around 66, steady rain […]

So, yesterday afternoon while Aaron and I marked off some embarrassingly overdue chores on our to-do list, I kept pondering dinner. Out loud. “Hey babe, what should we have for dinner? What do you want to eat? What sounds good tonight? What are you craving? When should we start cooking? Now perhaps? No? Stop talking? […]

If you’re in the food blogging world, this story will be devastatingly familiar to you. As we all learned last week, Jennifer Perillo suddenly lost her husband, Mikey, to a massive heart attack, leaving her with her two daughters. I don’t know this woman.
