It’s Oscar night! The red carpet is littered with the rich and famous, dressed to the nine in the finest gowns and tuxes. I look pretty good, too. I’m lounged on my red sofa, wearing some designer (read: tattered) yoga pants from 1997, and my hair is in a most elegant (read: ratty) low bun […]
A little five-spice for dinner tonight. Any idea what’s on the menu?
Yesterday morning Aaron woke up really craving some “man food.” He wanted steak, potatoes and broccoli. “Awesome! Take over!” I told him. I had a baby shower to attend mid-afternoon, so while I was gone he zipped out for the ingredients and had the kitchen to himself last night. Let me rephrase that. He mostly […]
Some drawers that will be put to use in the greenhouse. There will be tears.
My husband is building me a mini greenhouse out of some scrap wood, doors and shelves we have downstairs. I knew there was a reason I married this fella. I’ll be sure and post updates as this thang comes together.

I have NO idea what you’re talking about. Seriously, is there a petition we can sign? Chicken Stir-Fry With Bean […]

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. My heart belongs to tacos. Okay, tacos and Aaron. I mean Aaron and tacos. Taron and Aacos. This is called “having issues.” Fish Tacos: What it took for 2: * 4 frozen tilapia filets, thawed, pat dry and cut into 1/2-inch sticks * ½ an onion, […]
I always forget how amazing anchovies are. They are like hidden gems in the world of flavor.
