As I write this, I can hear the ice and freezing rain falling outside. We're waiting for the power to go out, but praying it doesn't.
We love our little house out in the country, but weather likes this makes us love it not so much. Our country roads are always the last to be cleared and wh

I am constantly trying new recipes, or new takes on old recipes. When I do, my goal is always the same, to make a healthy and satisfying dish that is also full of flavor. Most of the time, I like to think, I'm pretty successful. Sometimes, I'm not. And sometimes

Potato Gnocchi with Kale and Mushrooms in a Goat Cheese Sauce

It's a new year, a time for possibilities and brighter futures. For many, it's a time for the annual New Year's resolution. And,

Chicken is a protein staple for many of us trying to lose weight or live a healthier lifestyle. I would bet serious money that the vast majority of us have groaned over the idea of yet another piece of grilled chicken. This is why I love Hunter's Chicken, cacciatore

Spinach, Mushroom and Sausage Linguine
My apologies to the regular readers out there, I know I haven't been posting much. It's not that I haven't been cooking, it's just that I am in the middle of a very busy time at work. Between that and personal obligations, I just haven't had a lo

There are night's when you just feel like grazing. I actually love those evenings.We'll put out small plates of fruit, fresh and
pickled veggies, crackers and cheese. We'll throw in a movie and everyone chills, snacks and enjoys the flick.
