There’s really nothing I can say here except it’s Saturday morning, the weather is divine, the Hogs play in a few hours and my hair is a mess. I’m so happy.
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 […]

Last night a girlfriend came over and we ate cheese. A lot of cheese. There was much of the dipping into the cheese. Don’t worry, we ate our vegetables. We coated them in cheese. We had good, nutritious bread too. Soaked in cheese. We were this close to dipping any and all household objects into […]
As I type this I am wiping up the last of the parmesan shavings with my finger and sharing onion bits with little miss Charlie. She kind of likes frittata. What it took: * 2 eggs * 1/2 a medium yellow onion, sliced thinly * 1/4th cup chopped fresh parsley * sprinkle of Hungarian sweet […]
This is my version of Saturday morning zen.
