Apparently I like cleaning my outdoor grill about as much as I like cleaning my oven (otherwise known as almost never) – because I had another gas fire while grilling […]
We haven’t had a vacation in nine years, friends. Nine years! We were plagued with one hiccup after another. But we finally got away last week. And we couldn’t have […]
When I get a new cookbook to check out, secretly I’m sort of hoping it won’t be very good. I’m running out of shelf space, and this way I wouldn’t […]
So, apparently it’s not enough that Fabio Viviani is attractive, charming, and can cook like a badass. But he happens to be funny, too. I had the pleasure of getting […]
Winter foods are so comforting. But they also tend to be heavy. They make me sleeeeepy. I’m really trying to get my portion control in check, and also eat lighter. […]
As much as I’ve urged Fall to get here, it remains so stinkin’ hot where I am. So I am still eating things that require little use of my oven. […]
The world can always use more girl power, so I’m excited that my friend Jenna from Jenna’s Everything Blog will be helping out with that. She and her husband are […]
Some things about my kids just make perfect sense. Like how they were both early talkers, not shy, athletic, and high…HIGH…energy. That apple really doesn’t fall from the tree. And […]

A couple of weeks ago I had a dream about Drew Carey. Girthy Drew Carey, not emaciated Drew Carey. He was babysitting the kids and trying to teach them how […]
Trevor: What are you making, Mom? Me: Something called Bruschetta, with strawberries and nectarines. Trevor: Oh, I love strawberries and nectarines. Me: I know you do.

Just three weeks ago, in Minnesota, our entryway was filled with jackets, scarves, gloves, and snow boots. Now in California, my kids have spent the last two days lacquered with […]
I know a lot of people are excited for the Fall season; thinking about soups and stews and casseroles, oh my. Not me. I am in complete denial. It’s not […]
Paul and I are smart people. Really we are. Although some of our decisions in the last five years would suggest otherwise. Like when we both thought filling out an […]
Other than a particular dip that my mom makes with onion, garlic, and roasted eggplant, I’ve never been a fan of the purple vegetable. And who knows – maybe all […]
