Spinach and Citrus Green Drink

Ever since Chris gifted me with a fancy blender for my birthday earlier this year, I have been having lots of fun trying out new recipes.  I use the countertop machine almost every day, making quick sorbets, pureeing soups and whirling up smoothies.  A couple months ago I posted a recipe for Maureen’s Green Drink, […]


Banana Oatmeal Muffins

Chris just finished doing our taxes.  I used to love doing the taxes (really!), but ever since Chris ventured into entrepreneurship everything has become so complicated so now April 15 is his deadline.  Unfortunately, this year we owe Uncle Sam a much heftier sum than we were expecting, so now we have to rein in the […]


Papa’s Fried Cod Recipe

My kids are so lucky.  Not only do they know and love their four grandparents, but they also have known all but one of their great grandparents.  Evie even met her great-great grandmother, and this photo of FIVE generations will be one of my favorites forever: My dad’s parents – the kids’ great-grandparents – live […]


Homemade Oreo Cookies

One of Mack’s all-time favorite treats does not come from my kitchen.  Whenever we take a road trip or flight, the kids get to pick out special treats, and Mack always chooses Oreos.  Can’t say I’m surprised: Oreo cookies are delicious.  And, a recent study compared the overall addictiveness of Oreo cookies to cocaine. But, […]


Meghan’s Cranberry Chicken

Ever since we brought Baby Ben home from the hospital two weeks ago, we have been blessed with some of the best dinners.  Friends and family have brought over a meal nearly every night, relieving me of the stress of meal preparation (and clean-up!).  I don’t think a simple thank-you card can possibly express my […]


No Bake Lactation Cookies

When I received the shipment of the Kangaroo Tube Top from MilkandBaby.com, a recipe for lactation cookies was very smartly tucked inside. What a clever idea! As a new mom purchasing nursing wear, I was very happy to find this little surprise! While my milk supply is well-established with no sign of diminishing, I like […]


Bacony Butternut Squash Soup

Winter. Ugh. By mid February I am so over the cold and slushy snow and cloudy skies. Today’s projected high of 51 might sound encouraging, but one look at the forecast for next week (um, 15 degrees on Tuesday?!) and I’m quickly dragged back to reality. But perhaps the worst part about winter in the […]


Homemade Blackberry Jam

The local produce market I shop at every week always has some amazing deals.  A few weeks ago HUGE boxes of Florida oranges were only $2.98, and as I wrote about before I once scored 11 pounds of orange peppers for just $1.00.  This week’s super deal was 6 oz containers of organic blackberries for […]


Maureen’s Green Drink

For my birthday this year, Chris t o t a l l y splurged and bought me the high-end Vita-Mix blender I have dreamed about for years.  I was shocked – shocked, I tell you! – when I opened the box.  Never in a million years did I think we would actually get one.  It […]


Clementine Olive Oil Cake

Lately, 3 year old Mack says he wants to be a chef when he grows up.  I can’t say I’m surprised.  He really does enjoy helping out in the kitchen, especially in the afternoons when Vivian naps and Evie is at school. He and I will do most (if not all!) of the prep work […]
