New Year’s Eve Pasta Aioli

Happy New Year's Eve! I can't believe that the last day of the year is here. Where did 2018 go? It's been a pretty amazing year for me - one of the best, in fact.

Easy Pesto

At the beginning of the past two summers, we planted a little spice container garden on the back patio. This year, we planted a lot of basil, thyme, and rosemary. We thought we had bought mint that we could eat, but discovered we actually bought catnip! That is supposed to keep the mosquitos away, but … Continue reading Easy Pesto

Quick Pasta Pomodoro

When I was single, cooking was something I didn't do on a daily basis. Cooking for one is really hard. I would cook a "real meal" on Sunday, along with a pan of baked chicken and vegetables to eat during the week.

They smell funky when cooking and can have a bitter taste if not cooked properly. As a result, my mom rarely made them. Our vegetable of choice was steamed broccoli with a little … Continue reading The Versatile Brussels Sprout

Where is the summer going? I can't believe that it's already the second week of August! Last week, we made a honey-do list of all of our projects we want to complete over the next few weekends and we realized it will take us until the end of the year to get our list completed! … Continue reading Easy Blueberry Oatmeal Crumble

Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa

It’s no secret that I love tacos. I could really eat them every day. Mexican food is one of the easiest cuisines for me to eat because so much of it is based on corn, not flour. The tortilla chips are corn and I order corn tortillas instead of flour. And, it’s easy to have … Continue reading Fish Tacos with Mango Salsa
