On our way home from a trip, Aldo and I stopped at Bob's Diner in Manchester, Vermont, for breakfast. I had a bacon-sausage-home fries breakfast skillet with two eggs on top, and it was THE. MOST. DELICIOUS. BREAKFAST. EVER. They served it in a ...more

Recently, I tried a food/recipe delivery service called Hello Fresh. You pay a fee to have three recipes' worth of food delivered straight to your house. We love it because the recipes are easy to follow, they give me something different to add to my dinner rotation, and it's a fun way to try something new without the commitment of wandering through the grocery store looking for ingredients I've never used before....more

I do love food and trying out new restaurants, but I also like to be prepared in case I’m in a situation where there aren’t too many options (or when I have an irrational fear that I’ll starve to death on a 2 hour flight… which is every time)....more

Dinner in our house is sometimes a bit of a struggle. My son is a red meat and potatoes kid, no sauces and no seasonings. Up until recently I've basically been making two meals at dinner. This has stopped, I just couldn't do it any more. Tonight he is being introduced to my Garlic and Lemon Baked Chicken. Normally I don't do a lot of chicken, it's not one of my favorites.
