It’s been a very productive Saturday even though it began a little on the rough side. I’ve been struggling with getting over a cold for the last few weeks and it morphed into an intense sinus headache when I woke up this morning. I ended up popping a bunch of new medicine so that CK […]

CK and I both eat a ton of yogurt in a variety of forms and flavors so when given the opportunity I jumped at the chance to taste test Olympus’s product line. When the shipment arrived I was bowled over by the variety of products the company made. There was the usual compliment of 0%, 2%, and full-fat Greek […]

It definitely feels like summer is right around the corner in New England. In fact I even wore a skirt today. Even though the garment has been kicking around my closet for years now it felt incredibly refreshing to not put on the same revolving array of black outfits I’ve been leaving the house in […]

In the summer time my mind doesn’t normally think, “Eureka! Let’s make a casserole.” But perhaps it should? The rainbow of produce I picked up at the Copley Square Farmers Market seemed destined for greatness so when I stumbled upon this light and eye appealing recipe I knew I had found a match made in […]
