Strawberry-Basil Popsicles

Popsicles are the new cupcakes. You heard it here first, folks! Not only are they waaaaaay easier, they are amazingly refreshing on a hot summer day. And they don’t go stale. And you don’t have to argue about Team Cake vs. Team Icing. Everyone’s on Team Popsicle. I have made two batches now and I […]

How does your garden grow?

I am so excited about my little container garden. It seems to be doing so well! We have had a LOT of rain and some warm, sunny days and things are happening! A few days ago I got my first teeny tiny tomato. Well, now it is golf-ball sized and has invited about 15 friends […]

Gardening for Dummies

Gardening is a relatively new thing to me. Growing up in Florida, I remember just one year my mom grew tomatoes even back before my little sister was born — so I must have been 5 or 6. I still remember, very distinctly, the smell of a tomato vine. It is incredibly powerful and transports […]

Crock Pot Chicken and Mexican Cole Slaw

Just in time for Cinco de Mayo, one of my all-time favorite holidays. If you ask me, there isn’t much better than a taco. The endless combination of flavors is magic in my mouth. I love everything from a Mexican restaurant hard shell filled with cheese more than anything else, to the gentlest dollop of […]

Greek Chicken Pitas

I love this recipe. I love how it is a whole meal wrapped in bread. It is messy and garlicky¬†and finger-lickin’ good. It is finally warming up enough that I don’t have to wear a coat to stoke the grill. It stays light late enough that I don’t need my headlamp to check on the […]

Guac Attack!

If you ask any of my friends what I love most in this world, they will probably say guacamole. I mean, who doesn’t love a rich, creamy, spicy, fresh, garlicky dip of amazing flavor? And it is so quick and easy. I regularly whip up some guac for a weeknight dinner in just ten minutes […]

Parsley: not just a garnish anymore!

I am a relatively new parsley fanatic. I used to hit up the herbs at the grocery store for cilantro (frequently) and basil (occaisionally). Last year when I had my first garden, I tried growing parsley but the birds seemed much more interested in pecking the seeds out of the pot before I could get […]

No-Stir Risotto with Mushrooms

I don’t know about you, but I am not very patient in the kitchen. I mean, if something is cooking away unassisted, that’s totally fine. But if I have to stand there and babysit something when I could be sitting down with a beer watching Netflix, well, it ain’t happenin’. This is probably why I’ve […]
