They Can’t All Be Gems, Folks!

March 8, 2020

Hello everyone! Sorry for the extended delay between posts. I’ve been keeping busy! I spent some free time working on a maze commission, and this past week just got away from me a little bit. Plus, my birthday was a few days ago (I’m now 41), so I’ve been taking stock on a few things and thinking about this upcoming year. I’ll share more about that in my next post.

This post, however, is about food. I share regularly about what I’m eating, and I’ll let you in on a little blogging secret: Read the rest of this entry »


What’s In This Stir-Fry? You’ll Never Guess!

February 5, 2020

Here’s a recent dinner I made. Looks pretty good, doesn’t it?

It was easy to make, with three basic components: veggies, meat, and rice. But that’s technically a lie, because the meat wasn’t meat, and the rice wasn’t rice! Read the rest of this entry »


Catching Up With A Few Weeks of Food Photos… SEE?! I’m Eating Healthy!

June 20, 2019

My food posts have been few and far between lately, but I am making good choices and cooking healthy meals. Here are a bunch of the meals I’ve enjoyed over the past few weeks – some at home, some at restaurants. I like posts like this because I can look back later and remind myself of what I’ve enjoyed… and what I want to make and eat again! Read the rest of this entry »


Double Peach Chicken

January 10, 2018

My first recipe of 2018! It’s a good one, inspired by a recipe I found on the back of a bottle, and then forgot about for months!

Last September, I went hiking with friends, to a rocky coastline still littered with debris from a shipwreck that happened 50 years ago. (Read about it here!) We went to lunch afterwards, and I was intrigued by the recipe for Peachy Chicken that I found on the back of the bottle of Heinz malt vinegar on our table. So I snapped a photo of the recipe.

I forgot all about the photo until recently, when I was Read the rest of this entry »


Chicken Bacon Zucchini Twists

November 8, 2017

Look, I went grocery shopping!

I didn’t really buy three party-sized bags of Cheetos. I actually bought four!

Kidding, kidding. What I really bought were ingredients for a delicious and healthy dinner that my sister Laura and I made at her place in Chicago. Read the rest of this entry »


Chicken with Mediterranean Sauce

December 8, 2016

I made a flavorful sauce the other night, and I’m calling it a Mediterranean sauce because it uses pretty much all the Mediterranean flavors. All of them.

My recipe was inspired by a recipe in Read the rest of this entry »


Chicken with Tarragon, Grapefruit, and Olives

June 23, 2015

I wanted to continue my little streak of cooking and eating citrus fruit, peel and all, so I came up with an easy, simple chicken recipe and tried it out on a couple friends who came to dinner. My recipe is inspired by a delicious meal my friend Katherine made in Sweden, which in turn was inspired by a Martha Stewart recipe. Leave it to me to mess around with Martha’s perfection!

It starts with Read the rest of this entry »
