Comfort food stuffs

Well, today was one for the record books. The kind of day that breaks your spirit a little bit but then you get home and get a hug and a grin from your five month old and you're like ok. Just another day. Buuuuut I still want comfort food. Cue the egg, olive, and cream... Continue Reading →


Prime Rib

it's 7am and I have a milk drunk baby asleep on my chest. What a surprise! I know, you're thinking, "tell me something I don't know, Alexa." Since that's the case, here's something I learned that will forever be implemented as a Christmas tradition in my home: prime rib. Don't waste my time with turkey... Continue Reading →

An Ode to Bagel and Schmear

Bagel and schmear, oh bagel and schmear. Were there ever a more perfect weekend breakfast combo than bagel and schmear (and tomato, capers, red onion, and lox)? Waking to the realization that it's still the weekend and not Monday morning like you thought is cause for celebration in the form of a real breakfast and... Continue Reading →

Shepherds Pie

For when life gets to you and you just need comfort food. This version is far more than leftover potatoes, tomato soup, and ground beef. (Baby is sleeping in my arms and I wrote this from my phone  excuse any stupidity) Filling: 2 lbs of lamb, either ground or cubes 3 carrots, chopped 3 celery... Continue Reading →

We are gently rocking the morning away on our three season porch wrapped in flannel blankets, baby snoring softly and occasionally fussing when the pacifier slides from her sleepy mouth. We have the buzz of... Continue Reading →

Homemade Corn Tortilla Chips

Side note: Duh, it'd be pretty stupid to post about buying a bag of chips at the store. Ok this one was definitely a craving-driven adventure. I was making taco pizza for dinner (another adventure, forgot to take pictures. Oops.) and needed crispy corn strips for the top. I didn’t want crumbled Tostitos, so being... Continue Reading →

Company-Worthy Frittata

We’ll start with my most recent food adventure since it’s still pretty fresh on the brain. The other day I had some close girl friends over for brunch and quality time in the new house. We haven’t really done any big entertaining since the miscarriage in November and then when I got pregnant right away... Continue Reading →

And We’re Back

It simultaneously feels like everything and whole lot of nothing has happened over the last five months. First of all, I’m pregnant again and time absolutely creeps by when you’re counting in weeks. Second, we’ve finally unpacked most of the boxes since the move and now are starting to feel like our house is really... Continue Reading →
