It was Friday night and I felt guilty. Danny and I were leaving the kids for the third night in a row and they weren’t complaining. But I felt awful. I threw together a meal that I didn’t think much of (there was absolutely no nutritional value; pour on more guilt). As soon as I [...]

Mid Winter Meal: Meatloaf

On February 25, 2013 By admin

I’ve got to be honest with you. I am growing out of love with meat. I’m not judging people that eat meat. I just don’t feel like eating it anymore. With one exception. 5 Guys Burgers. Can’t say “no” to those when I’m craving protein. But all that aside, this is another vehicle of meat [...]

Tonight we are having friends over for Minestrone Salad with Grilled Sausage and Arugula Pesto. This is one of my favorite summertime menus. I make the salad and pesto in the morning, clean my house like a madwoman in the afternoon, then grill the sausage on [...]

I don’t know about you, but I can feel Winter just creeping out the back door, like a lame uninvited guest to a party. Go ahead Winter, we won’t miss you. But before you go, let’s acknowledge you with one of my favorite stormy night meals: The Great Chana Masala

On January 24, 2012 By admin
