What Boys Eat For Breakfast

What Boys Eat For Breakfast

You knew this was gonna be weird, you just didn’t know how weird. I have to begin by saying that this is not at all an unusual breakfast food combination for any of the four guys I live with. But somehow the pepperoni-sausage-and-black-olive pizza, hard boiled egg, and cantaloupe just demanded I take a photo, […]

Apple Hash

Apple Cinnamon Almond Hash

Sometimes when I have an giant bag of ripe green apples, I cut them all up to make what we call an apple hash. I add chopped celery (which doesn’t really show much in the picture, but I add plenty), cinnamon, almond slivers, and dried cranberries, then I pack it all into a container and […]

French Breakfast Radishes

French Breakfast Radishes and Haiku

I couldn’t resist these pink and white gems in the grocery. They’re French Breakfast Radishes, which I hear are easy to grow because they tolerate the heat well and stay sweet and tender even in adverse growing situations. They’re easy to find around here, and so full of flavor and crunch that you’ll find yourself […]

Watercress and Kale salad

Kale, Chicken and Bell Pepper Salad

Back in the Zone

The first week of December I re-injured my shoulder, and spent two solid months in physical therapy and out of boxing. I became the cardio mistress (wore my thigh-high leather boots, carried the whip) but the intense PT schedule meant I had to give up some of my regular workouts. I got sloppy with my […]

TriColor Salad

Tri-Color Salad

My office mates are convinced I have no love for them. I do feel a little bad, but I can’t help it. Onions are just so delicious! And onions, tomatoes, and yellow pepper with a bit of olive oil and Balsamic vinegar are absolutely heavenly. And given how cold and crappy it is outside, doesn’t […]

Turkey leftovers

See You Later, Turkey.

Now you see it… and later — when you’re not mad tired of it — you’ll see it again. That’s okay, sometimes you have to take that leftover turkey and make it work for a couple of months from now. Easiest way? Bag it up into single servings and freeze it. Stuffing too (that’s mine […]
