Sweet and Spicy Salmon Burgers

Sweet and Spicy Salmon Burgers

You know, if the weather actually got it’s act together, we’d realize that it’s almost April, which means it’s almost May and burger season is upon us.   I hate talking about the weather but my state of mind relies on it: am I too […]

How’s everyone doing today?  Life is okay over here. I’ve started to really kick my butt into “summer’s coming” mode with some new workouts and I’m all kinds of sore. I know it’s in the good way and all that but man, it hurts so […]

Coconut Truffle Kettle Corn

A recipe!  You’re probably figuring it was about time, and I couldn’t agree more. I mean, that’s why you’re here (or, why I’m here, at least).  Since I left Chicago, and for the two months before, I barely cooked, having eaten my way through my […]

Monday Musings

Hello, Monday. Today was orientation for my new job, which starts tomorrow. Which means that this past week has been crazy unpacking boxes and setting everything up and doing laundry and hanging pictures and fixing my pantry*, all so that when I come home tomorrow […]

Eat the World: Chicago

Eat the World: Chicago

Chicago is a great city for so many reasons, but I think it really stands out on dining. It’s the reason that I left 10 or so more pounds (let’s be real, 15) heavier than when I arrived. Some of it is no doubt age.  […]

Emily: “So I suppose this is it. George: I suppose it is. Emily: [hugs George, holds on] George: You have to let go, Emily. Emily: But what if I don’t want to, George?   What if…what if this is a mistake? George: Then that’s what […]
