Sunday Somethings

Taking it back to Oktoberfest 2010.  Germany, we wish we were there. Hello, Sunday. Why is it so hot??  I can’t think about anything else.  I’m sweating in all the places. I’m in Chicago this weekend for a hot second, where I’m meeting up with friends, […]

Piri-Piri Chicken Chili

Piri-Piri Chicken Chili

I’ve been searching for bowls of comfort these days over bowls of greens, and chili, obviously, comes to mind.  It’s rare that I ever try anyone else’s chili over Mom’s when I want something basic because, while everyone INSISTS that their particular chili recipe is […]

Five-Spice Granola and Pear Parfaits

Do you struggle with breakfast?   I sometimes struggle with breakfast.  I’ll eat the same things for months (or years, really) on end without fail until something happens that makes me want to change it up. Past choices:  egg white omelets (all of law school), […]

Hello, Sunday. Well, fall pulled a fast one on us and we’re back up to 80 degrees in these Midwest parts.  Still, the chili is on the stove and apples and pears fill the fridge.  Glimpses to come this week. I’ve been enjoying it while […]

Caesar Salad (with homemade dressing)

It’s September and while we all know that salad season is winding down to make way for chilis and soups and all the rib-sticking goodness, I’m giving you this salad because really it’s a salad for all seasons.  Salads are seasonal; the spring varieties tout […]

Hello, Sunday. I can’t say that I’ve been focused on anything this week but Irma. I know I don’t live anywhere near Florida, but my family and friends still live there, and they all decided to stay put. It’s bringing back memories of Andrew and […]

Five-Spice Apple Waffles

Five-Spice Apple Waffles

Fall is SO in the air. Like, I wore a SWEATER to work yesterday. And was not hot.  Seriously, bust out the sweats. I’m totally fine with it because who doesn’t love fall? Maybe those that are dead inside, but for the rest of us, […]

Monday Musings

Monday Musings

Hello, Monday. I’m a day late with my weekendly thoughts but that’s pretty much because I got to Saturday night, and said YES to another day of being computer-free. That’s pretty much how life is these days, and it’s admittedly fantastic. I’ve been enjoying the last […]

We’re almost at the weekend!  The LONG weekend and I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for it. I don’t typically take vacation during the summer, so it’s been long stretch since Independence Day and I’m really looking forward to three days of sloth […]
