Happy Friday, everyone. I don’t know about you but it has seemed like a rather long week to me! I am happy that today is Friday. Yesterday’s food was a bit of an experiment. I’ve been feeling a little not so good lately, on and off for about a month. Yesterday I tried an experiment.…… Continue reading Friday

I cannot wait to make this…

Happy Hump Day, everyone! I hope you are all having a great day. During my lunch break I was flipping through one of my favorite cooking blogs, 101 Cookbooks, and I came across this recipe. I cannot wait to make it! Hopefully next week and I will be sure to report back. I’ll be back…… Continue reading I cannot wait to make this…


A Great Lunch…

Wow, today’s lunch made it worth the hour and a half I spent in the kitchen last night! During that hour and a half I did the following: Made Mark Bittman’s pasta fagioli soup (one of my favorite winter meals!) (This includes chopping onions [and crying of course], a couple of cloves of garlic, parsley,…… Continue reading A Great Lunch…

The Glory Week is Over….

Ok, so last week I tried to get my butt back in gear after the half marathon. There were so many things I had to do at work and after work, I just could not seem to find the time to go to the gym unless it was 9 o’clock at night, and last week…… Continue reading The Glory Week is Over….

After getting home from my commute (I was thrilled [no, not really] to get soaked walking to the bus, on my way to the train home tonight)…… Continue reading …and the blah continues

Hi All: Sorry I have been away for a couple of days. Not too much to report, but I have survived the last couple of days since the half marathon. I took Monday off from work to recover. My knees were sore, and my quads were not exactly thrilled with me on Monday. But all…… Continue reading Post Race Recovery


My First Half Marathon

I have been a bit MIA lately, and now I can tell you why. The past week I have been preparing for my first half marathon, and I was not in the best of moods, I must admit. I did not want to write anything about the half marathon before it happened because I was…… Continue reading My First Half Marathon


Friday already??

It has just been one of those weeks. Everything seemed to be on fast forward, and somehow it is already Friday. I do not understand! But I am not complaining. Tuesday night I had an amazing salad for dinner that my mom made! I had some red wine and bread, too. It was an amazing…… Continue reading Friday already??

Julia’s Boeuf

As some of you know, I have been wanting to make Julia Child’s classic Boeuf Bourguignon for days. This past week we experienced perfect fall weather in Boston and Providence.  It was only getting up into the low 60s during the day and dropping into the forties at night. PERFECT for fall cuisine. I was craving…… Continue reading Julia’s Boeuf
