Snow Day Warm Up

So I'm making honeybell tangelo infused vodka. That's what people do on snow days, right? Rob and I were supposed to go out for a much needed and often postponed date tonight but Mother Nature decided we should get snowed in again. Real nice of her. So we are sitting here with the kiddo watching... Continue Reading →


Well shit.

I'm not sure how long it's been since my last post, but I know my toddler daughter was an infant. So too long. Things have gone so fast and so slow I really have a hard time keeping track of who's who at the zoo. Kiddo currently has four or five teeth coming in, we... Continue Reading →

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 →

Buffalo Chicken Stuffed Peppers

We've talked in the past about my obsession with Buffalo flavored everything, so here's a fun little diddy that I made up last night before the Patriots game.  (This post is super short because I'm on my lunch break at work and I'm very busy stuffing my own face and my coworker's faces with my...

Eva Wren

How many cups of coffee can this new mama drink while the baby naps? So far this morning it's three. 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 →
