No, no. Barney the dinosaur did not in fact explode all over my quinoa. That’s some real life purple cauliflower rawt thar. Have you ever seen such a thing? Well guess what, CLASS. I did a little research on these beauts, so get out your #2 and some notebook paper and let’s get LEARNT. And […]

So, as bistro week continues (the only real thing I learned about the meaning of “bistro” is that I need to grow a mustache for true authenticity. DONE. And gross.) we’re having steak and potatoes! By the way, bistro week did in fact start on Monday with Aaron’s pasta, and then on Tuesday with soup, […]
SWISS CHARD PESTO. Thaaaaaaaaat’s it. Remember when I showed you the leetle Instagram teaser shot this weekend and no one could guess what kind it was? Man, that was like a pesto joy ride for me. And my hair got all windblown. You’re not convinced on this yet, are you? Neither was Aaron. When I […]
Remember this from Instagram land? WELL, it’s now available at a website near you!

It happens every year about this time. We have a few 70-degree days and the gun is jumped. Tank tops are re-introduced to pale skin, chaco sandals are thrown on, the pony-tail is back in action. And then it’s over. Just like that. The temperature drops and all hopes and dreams of a new life […]
We’ve officially entered the winter season. Goods news is the shortest day of the year is now behind us! I get so excited because as soon as January 1st hits, I have this mental shift and start putting pen to paper to map out the Weidner Garden. What can I say? I’m an enthusiastic planner. […]
Well hello November. You’re crisp, overcast and breezy. Now if you want to stay just like this until March, we’ll be cool, okay? No? Not a chance at all? What if we ask my good friend Andrew Jackson? Still no? Okay the laughing hurts. Baked Chicken Sausage with Cannellini Beans and Swiss Chard: What it […]
