on Weeknight Dinners: Herbed Parmesan Squash

OK, I promised another side dish recipe. This one got my mother - not a squash fan - to say, 'I didn't even hate it!' =) Hi mom! It makes me look forward to this summer and fall, when our neighborhood farmers market will be heavy with squash. Honestly, I am so looking...

on Weeknight Dinners: Buttery Scalloped Potatoes

I'm terribly boring when it comes to side dishes. I tend to choose from a handful of default options: frozen green vegetable, brown rice, green salad, couscous... the end. So I knew I had to try a couple sides from Gooseberry Patch's Weeknight Dinners, and they now...

on Weeknight Dinners: Slow-Cooked Minestrone

Here in Minnesota, we've gotten snow every single day this week, which totally thrills me! I love snow. Love it. Doesn't matter what time of day it snows, it gives me Christmas morning feeling. Is there anything better than cozying up by the fireplace, hunkering down...

on Weeknight Dinners: Busy-Night Taco Bake

on inviting {(in)RL!}

I am a terrible inviter. I wait for invitations to come to me, pouting if they don't, but rarely issue my own. Please still like me. That admission makes me sound like an awful person! It's not out of selfishness (not the kind it implies, anyway), but rather fear....

on the Willpower Instinct

I'm a whole 10 days into the New Year, and so far... I'm doing ok. While in the last month I've had the flu twice and strep throat once, we've still managed enough healthy days to make it to the gym a few times, be slightly more mindful about what we're eating, and...
