Easy Leftover Stir-Fry

Do you have leftover meats/proteins? Vegetables that may start to turn? Cooked rice that’s just been sitting in the fridge? Make a stir-fry! I love stir-fries. I probably make at least one every two weeks. They’re easy and you can throw in basically anything that you want. I usually look for leftover vegetables that willContinue reading “Easy Leftover Stir-Fry”

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto

Risotto. So delicious! So creamy! It transports me back to my study abroad in Italy. It makes me think of cobble stone streets, large grand avenues, beautiful architecture and melodic language. Great wine ( especially for a 21 year old!) and even greater food. While watching Hell’s Kitchen, we saw all the chefs struggling toContinue reading “Gourmet Mushroom Risotto”

Easy French Ratatouille

The Hubby and I have been binge watching Hell’s Kitchen. You know, the tv show where Gordon Ramsey yells at everyone ( just kidding he does in all his shows)? While we were watching, ratatouille was mentioned and Sam ( the hubs) asked what it was. I said vegetables and he thought I mean aContinue reading “Easy French Ratatouille”

Passover 2021

Passover (Pesach in Hebrew), is a holiday that celebrates the Jews’ escape from Slavery. Miracles took place, but they still wandered the desert for 40 years until they reached Israel. This Passover passed much like 2020, in the house and zooming with the family. That being said, there was a lot more hope this year.Continue reading “Passover 2021”

Strawberry Rosé Cake

Southern Living Magazine came out with a recipe that I simply couldn’t resist: Strawberry rosé cake. Yes I am supposed to be eating healthier, yes my hubby did give me the side-eye, haha, no it didn’t stop me! It looked and sounded so delicious in the magazine I gave in to it. And you knowContinue reading “Strawberry Rosé Cake”

Blueberry Lemon Muffins

As I stared blankly at my pantry, wondering what to eat for breakfast, I started to look at my top shelf. It is the baking shelf. It is also the shelf where exotic flours go to die. I started shifting some items around and ended up finding cassava flour, almond flour, wheat flour, corn flour,Continue reading “Blueberry Lemon Muffins”

Hello, Hello Fresh!

Sam (the hubby) has been wanting to try Hello Fresh for a while. My In-laws and Sister-in law all order Hello Fresh and love it! They often sing it’s praises. Since there is a special for first timers, we thought we would try a week. We have only tried the first meal so far andContinue reading “Hello, Hello Fresh!”

Air Fryer

That’s right. I decided to jump on the bandwagon. I’ve been reading about them for months, and even got one for the in-laws for Christmas! Well, I happened to see one while shopping with the hubby at Costco. I mentioned it to gage his interest, and wouldn’t you know it, the family shopping behind usContinue reading “Air Fryer”

Firewood Without the Fire Pit

Over the weekend the hubby and I got out the saw and we cut up some fallen tree limbs to burn. We were so excited to use the wood ( and dry out the furniture), that we ended up breaking the chiminea (ceramic fire pit)! As we started to move the fire pit, it justContinue reading “Firewood Without the Fire Pit”

Valentine’s Day 2021

Thanks Polar Vortex! The hubby had planned a surprise activity during the day and we had made reservations for our favorite local restaurant ( outside of course). It would have been the second time we went out to eat in close to a year! To say I was bummed was an understatement. I’m still saltyContinue reading “Valentine’s Day 2021”
