Coconut Truffle Kettle Corn

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 […]

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 […]

Mazariners (Swedish Almond Tarts)

Hello, Sunday. Well we’ve got one weekend to go before I pack up this shrimp shack and move to colder temps. I spent all of it with my favorites, and I’m trying really hard not to think about how life will be when they’re not […]

Labneh with Roasted Grapes

Labneh with Roasted Grapes

There is too much to do, not enough time, not enough hours, not enough arms, and what suffers is the food.  However, rather than reaching for the closest fast food item, I tend toward the opposite: less is more, and things like warm yogurt and […]

Oh my gosh…time, time…where is it GOING?  Before I knew it the weekend was gone and then it was Sunday and then brunch happened and then the Super Bowl, and here I am again on Monday night, turning Somethings into Musings.  The good news is, […]
