Cucumber Water: I Had No Idea.

“Would you like some flavored water Miss?” asked the tall, blonde Sienna Miller look-alike at the hair salon the other day. Flavored water, how trendy, I thought. “Um, sure. What do you have?” “Cucumber, watermelon and lime!” she chirped. I went with cucumber. Within 20 seconds she returned with a tall, slender, dewy glass of…cucumber […]

With the long holiday weekend on the way and travel plans to our hometown amongst us, I have one goal and one goal alone: to place one arm over the other, blink 3 times and make all of the remaining fresh food in our fridge vanish into our bellies. Ain’t no willy nillyin’ here, folks. […]

While perusing their site for inspiration for my own cooking, I fell […]

Summer Vegetable Pasta

We’re harvesting quite a bit of broccoli right now from our garden. (I can sense every kid ever wincing right now. SICK DUDE. KEEP ME AWAY FROM THAT YARD. DON’T GIVE MY MOM GET ANY IDEAS.) Aside from the insano health benefits of broccoli, the little florets are almost candy-like in this simple pasta dish. […]

Pulled-Chicken BBQ Sandwiches

Print Friendly

….And they’re gone. My parents just packed the car, hugged us one last time and drove away. Even at 34 years of age, I always get a little misty-eyed when they leave. I know that will never change. Parents are great. They’re great for buying you dinner. They’re great for buying you new sheet sets […]
