A Reprieve + Gluten-Free Banana Muffins

I’m not even going to get into where I’ve been. Oh how I have so much to tell you. About pizza. And fresh summer salads with feta and balsamic. And slaw. Oh the slaw. But that’s for another post and another time. Because the news I have for you today is so incredible, so mind… Continue reading A Reprieve + Gluten-Free Banana Muffins

Vegetable Minestrone Soup

Yesterday was not a good day for me. I looked around my filthy house, and made an executive decision to do nothing. I didn’t get out of my pajamas until 6 pm when I realized my husband would be home from work and see me, in my pajamas. The same pajamas from the day before.… Continue reading Vegetable Minestrone Soup

Chicken & Peppers: Three ways!

I like to save. Some might call me a pack rat, obsessive compulsive washer-outer. I save glass jars, plastic bags, Tupperware, vegetable cuttings for stock, leftovers, notes, envelopes, clothes, books, and when I can, money. You just never know when you might be able to re-use that empty marmalade jar for a homemade vinaigrette or… Continue reading Chicken & Peppers: Three ways!

When I… Continue reading Potato and Onion Bourekas

As you can tell from the lighting in my oh so perfectly posed picture, I’ve taken to night cooking again. Gil wondered why I was freaking out about all the food I have to prepare, and it’s only Tuesday. Men just don’t understand.… Continue reading Roasted Butternut Squash & Pear Soup

Fresh Applesauce

It has been so hot here that the cows have stopped producing milk. They have had to cut short production of butter and cheese in order to save the milk so that there isn’t a National shortage. This doesn’t really affect me at all, seeing that I’ve had to stop eating any dairy since the… Continue reading Fresh Applesauce

Chicken Noodle Soup

Today was just one of those days. It all started with a 4 am screaming wake up call and a nasty rheumatoid arthritis flare up, and proceeded to get worse by falling down the stairs (Mama and Baby are O.K.- thank goodness for 5 point stroller harnesses…) and narrowly avoiding a run-in with the Israeli… Continue reading Chicken Noodle Soup
