When Mike and I can’t agree on dinner, I like to cook “his” and “hers” style.
Sometimes it’s completely different meals, like spaghetti with homemade beef ragu for him and fish or chicken with a side of veggies (preferably roasted) for me. But if I’m lucky, it’s a similar meal that’s easily customizable for both of our tastes, like salad with different toppings or sandwiches with different fillings…or quesadillas! (more…)

So, the other day I walked into the bathroom and found the entire contents of the medicine cabinet strewn into the sink. Makeup, deodorant, toothpaste, medicine. It wasn’t pretty. (more…)

Not too long ago, I made a huge batch of bison, bean, and vegetable soup. It was, if I do say so myself, pretty fabulous.
Naturally, I completely expected my hubby not to like it. (more…)

I remember having a discussion with a friend a few years ago (before paleo was a household word) about the paleo way of eating. She was telling me about a friend of a friend who had converted three months ago and claimed to “feel great and be in the best shape of her life”. (more…)

Thank you to I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter® for sponsoring this post. I am happy for the opportunity to share products that I enjoy with my readers, and I hope you like my recipe for Stovetop Tuscan Mac and Cheese.
There are the obvious sources of mealtime inspiration, like cookbooks, food magazines, and food blogs. There are friends’ recommendations, and remakes of restaurant favorites.
But how often do we really go to our moms for recipe advice? (I mean after college anyway…my mom was my cooking guru during undergrad!) (more…)

I don’t really consider myself a clean freak, but I guess if the shoe fits. Or if she walks like a duck and talks like a duck…or in this case, if she feels the need to clean daily whether the apartment needs it or not…
Ok, I guess you can go ahead and call me a clean freak (my husband already does).
Which is why I’m appalled to say we had an ant issue not too long ago. (Ok, that’s a little dramatic. But I was at the very least surprised.) And to make matters worse, one day I heard one of our elderly lady neighbors yelling profanities out in the hallway; I ran out to see what was wrong (yup, some neighbors still do that, lol) and she was complaining about ants!

This recipe was developed for #McCormickTacoNight and this post is sponsored by McCormick; as always, opinions are my own.
We all know it’s not polite to stare at people eating, but have you ever stolen a glance? Truthfully, it’s hard not to notice the way a person eats when they’re sitting next to or across from you; it’s interesting, and I think you can tell a lot about someone by the way they make and eat a plate of food.

A while ago Mike had an intern at work whose family owned a Thai restaurant; we’ll call him “Jay”. To this Jay, I would like to say thank you for expanding my husband’s culinary horizons in a way that only hunger and an opportune moment can do (aka, if you’re hungry enough, you’ll try anything).

I can’t resist picking up a unique (or better yet, strange) food item, and even something that seems as ordinary as pasta is no different. (Food bloggers, I know you get this…everyone else, I know it’s a little weird.) (more…)
