  [dropcap]L[/dropcap]azy Saturdays at home are my favorite.  Often times our weekends are full and we don’t have time to just relax.  When we are out running errands we usually grab brunch somewhere.  So it’s a treat if we actually get to brunch at home. […]

soup sundays: tuscan bean with roasted cauliflower soup

  When my husband goes out of town for work my desire to cook myself dinner becomes essentially non-exisistent.  I lose all my domestic skills instantaneously. It’s ironic that even though I was single for years and cooked myself dinner all the time, but once he leaves […]

[dropcap]A[/dropcap]sian cuisine is NOT my specialty in the kitchen.  I will never claim to know the difference between Chinese food, Thai, Vietamese, Korean etc. because I don’t eat a ton of Asian inspired meals.  First of all you know how high maintenance selective I am […]

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]hen I was single living alone I cooked for myself all the time.  I often made most of my meals on the grill because it was easy to whip up food for one.  Most of the time I probably made dinner 4-5 nights a week […]

[dropcap]L[/dropcap]ately low carb nights have become a common theme in our house.  Previously I have written before about how my husband followed a pretty strict carb cycling program that helped him drop 10 lbs.  Now it’s more of a lifestyle for him.  Typically we don’t eat many […]

[dropcap]O[/dropcap]ne of my husband’s favorite snack in the world is queso.  Every time we go down south to Texas where he is from he always stops to get a container of the stuff he likes at Whole Foods that we don’t have in Michigan.  Over […]

[dropcap]W[/dropcap]hen my husband is out of town for work I don’t know what happens but I rarely get the urge to cook.  It’s odd to me because before I met him I cooked for myself all the time.  I loved being in the kitchen making […]
