Sorry we haven’t been around much, but life gets in the way of blogging sometimes! This seems especially true during the holidays. Rather than leaving you hanging, I’d love to share a … Continue reading
It’s sort of an in-between time where we live. The leaves are just starting to change color, and we still have afternoons with temperatures in the 70s.

It’s only a few more days until the official start of fall, my favorite season, hands down. Growing up in New England, most of my favorite memories involved colorful leaves or Halloween or apple orchards, and I actually looked forward to going back to school!

They are the inner core of young palm trees, such as coconut trees. They have a mild, lightly sweet flavor, but can … Continue reading
I love those recipes you can make in 30 minutes. But one of the reasons they are so simple and quick to make is that they feed, at most, four people. And most often, that’s four people who are on a diet or who otherwise want one single serving. That’s not my family. On weeknights, … Continue reading
