Fish Taco Bowls: Give Me Anything in a “Bowl”

Is it just me, or are “bowls” so in right now? When I say “bowls” I mean these one-dish meals with a bunch of delicious ingredients heaped together. Smoothie bowls, veggie bowls, Buddha bowls, rice bowls… I’m not complaining. I haven’t had one I didn’t […]

Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cup Layer Cake

Dark Chocolate and Peanut Butter Cup Layer Cake

Been a while, am I right? Not doing a ton of cooking these days because … 5 month old. This means most cooking is either completed with one hand or squeezed into occasional brief moments of baby’s relative contentment when playing in his Exersaucer. This […]

My First Shakshuka

My First Shakshuka

Just a quick post today.  It’s been a while, and I’ve been cooking a lot, but taking very few pictures.  So I’m sharing a rather unimpressive one, but it made for a delicious meal!  Hasn’t everyone been talking about shakshuka lately?  I feel like it’s […]

Lemon Blueberry Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

As promised, I took another set of cupcakes for a test drive last weekend in preparation for my upcoming baby shower!  I thought it would be appropriate to complement the chocolate peanut butter cupcakes with something very opposite.  I chose Lemon Blueberry Cupcakes with Cream […]

Ina’s Chocolate Cupcakes with Peanut Butter Frosting

Do you ever experience recipe overwhelm?  Like, how many different ways are there to make chocolate cupcakes?  Obviously, as a certified Type A lunatic, I envision myself finding 20 recipes and testing them all side by side because I want to be sure I found […]

Gretchen Rubin’s Happier podcast has been one of my favorites for a long time, and recently Gretchen and Elizabeth inspired me to choose a word of the year for 2018.  Normally I would deliberate over a decision like this for days or weeks, come up […]

Arancini – A New Holiday Tradition

Arancini – A New Holiday Tradition

I love the holidays for one billion reasons, but perhaps one of the most significant is the food.  It gives me an excuse to try new and elaborate things that you would just never bother to make on a weeknight, or even a normal weekend […]

Being Present Vs. Being Goal-Oriented

Being Present Vs. Being Goal-Oriented

Are they at odds?  That’s what I’ve been wondering.  I’ve been trying to live “in the moment” and to focus on being present and being mindful.  However, my nature is to obsess about the future, to carefully plan and ponder and set goals and worry […]

Snowball Cookies

Snowball Cookies

It’s about that time of year again when I throw caution to the wind and forget all my resolutions to eat and be healthy and refocus my attention on cookies instead.  It’s the time when I indulge in nostalgia and buy extra sugar, flour, and […]

Chocolate Peppermint Ganache Cookies

Chocolate Peppermint Ganache Cookies

The holiday season has officially begun, and even though we likely all overate this week5, today is nevertheless a day when I feel like celebrating by breaking a few rules.  I try pretty  hard all year, but no matter what I tell myself, I know […]
