In case you haven’t figured this out yet, I’m a really picky eater. And as summer has gotten into full swing again, I’ve circled back around to the fact that cookouts are a challenge for me.
I have to tell you about the most delicious thing that ever happened to a pizza: burrata. And caramelized onions. Just a hint of balsamic. Swoon. This is definitely a grown up pizza. (As in, I’m not sharing a slice with Jake, because it’s soo good I want to eat it all by myself. Okay, […]
It’s a snow day, so you know what’s on the menu at my house: grilled cheese and tomato soup. It’s the perfect comfort food! I have so many memories of eating this meal as a child, especially after traipsing around in the snow on a winter day. My mother would stand at the stove and […]
Sarah and I have been making lunches together for quite some time. And yet…we hardly ever make sandwiches. A classic lunch food, completely ignored!

I am not going to wax poetic today about beautiful cherry tomatoes or caramelized onions or intensely cheesy biscuits. I am just going to tell you to go make this tomato cobbler immediately. Very hearty. Very flavorful. Very simple. Go!

It is, after all, still January—we are still squarely in that brief season of keeping our resolutions to avoid cookies like the plague and eat nothing but salad and wheat bran day in and day out. […]
During summer, there is nothing I like better than ripe, fresh tomatoes. I love to walk past a stand of tomatoes in the farmer’s market and just breathe them in…it’s hard to describe what tomatoes smell like, but you know what I mean. They just smell like summer! I tend to eat a lot of […]
I lucked out in the grocery store this week…Harris Teeter had a sale on fresh, wild Alaskan salmon. It was such a beautiful color of bright red that I practically drooled on the glass case. By the way, if you didn’t know that your fish guy will skin the fish for you, I highly suggest […]
