Note: This post was originally published on Eat Boutique. Grilled cheese is my life. Or it was from the ages of 2 through 12. Back then I would happily have eaten a grilled cheese with a glass of milk for lunch every single day. If that meal was then followed by a Today’s Special marathon (especially if it […]

Truth. I am horrible at doing my own hair. I also haven’t gone to the salon since September so that complicates things even more. Therefore right now I essentially have two “styles.” They are messy bun and disheveled curls made via hot rollers. Kate Middleton wouldn’t be caught dead out in public with me. She’d […]

The Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics: Fabulous Flavor from Simple Ingredients cookbook by Ina Garten has turned out to be one of my favorite Christmas gifts this year. Thanks CK!

November 19, 2008

Much like my cookies, I like my Mac and Cheese to be rich, thick, and creamy. This recipe is more like a thin and crispy cookie, but I can still appreciate it for what it is – a quick and easy baked macaroni and cheese dish with good flavors that a lot of people will […]

“The Works” Pizza with Honey Wheat Crust

October 9, 2008

Yes, that is in fact a jar of Newman’s Own Tomato and Basil in the above picture. I’m not ashamed. I think I get a pass for using store bought sauce for two reasons: 1. It’s manufactured by Paul Newman’s company and 2. I made my own pizza dough. Oh…ok…CK made it. Not wanting to […]

Slamming Butternut Chilijack

August 13, 2008

All it does in Boston lately is rain every single day so this spicy and hearty recipe felt very fall and yet still appropriate when we made it. In his new cookbook, Food 2.0, the brilliant Charlie Ayers, former executive chef at Google, proclaimed that this dish was “slamming.” And oh how it lived up […]

Erin’s Starry Night Baked Brie

December 10, 2007

In my world a party just isn’t a party without at least six kinds of cheese, and Baked Brie is the best of the best when it comes to pleasing your wine drinking friends. Don’t worry, as pretty and “impressive” as they tend to look all dolled up on your hostess’s serving platter it couldn’t […]
