I just got home from hanging out with my Little Sister (we painted some ceramics!), and I was greeted to the MOST DELICIOUS dinner, which Marc prepared.  It’s from the Cooking Light Weeknight cookbook, which is my new favorite thing.  I don’t have a picture, but if you’re a meat eater, TRUST me, this is […]


I found a super great recipe for Asian Chicken Burgers on a lovely blog, Coconut & Lime.  I whipped them up tonight, since I’m THANKFULLY more mobile and can move my neck freely and without the aid of a neck brace. You can find the recipe link here, though I’ll recopy it below.  It was […]


Cooking is the pits when you’re by yourself.  Normally, I LOVE to experiment with food (or have Marc experiment with food….), but when Marc was gone, I wasn’t really interested in doing much of anything for dinner, unless it involved baking a Mama Celeste Pizza.  This is not an exaggeration.  Last week, I went to […]

It’s surely known that Marc is the cook in this family.  I am not quite there yet, but I’m trying to learn.  As Marc has the beginnings of a cold, I decided to be in charge of dinner tonight!  We’ve been trying out recipes from weightwatchers.com, in accordance with our weight loss plan.  Tonight’s delicious […]


Beer Bread

10Jan09

My dad made a huge feast for us at our Christmas celebration, including this amazing beer bread.  He just sent me the recipe in the mail, and it looked SUPER easy (and it was super good….) so I decided to make it. Neither Marc nor I are extraordinarily experienced in the ways of dough, particularly […]
