Only the very best of the B’s

By only the very best, I mean blueberries and bananas!  While we continue to move through the frigid March weather this smoothie is a definite pick me up and transports your taste buds straight into summer. It may not be time for flip flops, but that’s okay, we’ll make our own little vacation right here….

Fish & Farro on a cold winter day

As I sit today and stare out the window across my snow and ice covered yard, my body emits a little shiver and I’m gently reminded of how grateful I am to be inside. I hold my cup of tea closer, wrapping my chilly fingertips around its heat and take a deep, slow breath of Earl Grey…

Green Soup #1 for the Genuine Green Girl

How many times can one use G in a title?  If you’re me, never enough.  During the cold New England winter months, it’s easy for one’s body to get overwhelmed.  Lump the cold on top of a busy work and personal life schedule and you have a perfect (not so perfect) recipe for disaster. When…

Said one fish to another

While every fish may have had big dreams, I’m sure none of them involved turning into a fish cake. (Let’s face it that would be pretty self sacrificing, and bizarre.) But what does one do when haddock is on sale and you have plenty of leftovers from fish taco night? Make delightful fish cakes of…

Scallops meet your blind date, Chimichurri

At our house we are known for our love of all things seafood. Shrimp, scallops, fish, you name it, and I want it all in my tummy. Seafood is by far my favorite protein to eat and to cook with. These are seared scallops topped with a chimichurri sauce over a bed of vegetable flecked…

The Beet of the Music

I know these lyrics have nothing to do with Brett’s love of (or disdain) of beets, but I’ll admit the man certainly knows how to phrase his feelings: “Well you got the soul and you know how to use it Put your hand on my hip cause you know that I’ll lose it You got…

Sweet potato, mixed bean Sliders

Sliders…because let’s face it, we all need a little more fun in our lives. These little beauties were ridiculously simple to whip together. Place the sweet potato sliders and the mixed bean burgers in the oven at the same time. While those cook up, you’ll have just enough time to prep everything else! Total time:…

To my Future Children, “If you’re anything like me.”

“I hope you end up having 10 children, JUST LIKE YOU” my mother would shout in frustration after an increasingly difficult day in my teenage years.  At the time I believe she meant this more as a curse than a compliment, but as I’ve gotten older I’ve revisited that statement. Throughout the years I’ve become…

Leisurely Saturday Brunch

I love a good, old fashioned, lazy Saturday morning, don’t you? I savor the complete bliss that only a Saturday or Sunday can bring.  You know the bliss one feels as you gradually awake; no alarm needed, and no blaring 5 AM wake up?  I will relish that peaceful feeling as long as I can…

Add a little Sweet(potato)ness to your Life

I love sweet potatoes, and as you may or may not know by now I love soup!  There is something so comforting about dipping your spoon into this soup.  It is like a warm, delicious hug to your insides.  Did I mention it’s also healthy and good for you!
