I’m on Etsy!

Well hello! I haven't been posting on here too regularly as of late because, well....winter. It's either cold and dreary or bitterly cold and sunny a lot these days which isn't the best environment for getting out and about and documenting things. But that's not to say we haven't been up to anything. For one, we saw The ...

The One With the Weaving

Have you seen all the beautiful wall hangings, weavings, macramé plant holders and the like lately? I've been ogling them on Pinterest and Etsy for a long time now, and so when Hillary gave me a lap loom for Christmas, I was ecstatic!

Roasted Acorn Squash for Fall

Kale & Sweet Potato Enchiladas

I would like to share these other, less photogenic, red chile sweet potato enchiladas instead. Yum! This recipe is LOOSE - I ...

The Best Braised Short Ribs

Dan and I made braised short ribs for dinner on Valentine's Day - our first time making them  - and they were phenomenal. In fact, Dan might have declared it one of the best meals he's ever had. All the better I'm sure because we typically stick to vegetarian dishes or fish when when we cook at home, plus we used high ...

Simple Lemon Sole with Kale

While I am certainly not an expert on cooking, I do enjoy making a good meal. There is something so rewarding about making something tasty (especially when it's healthy). That said, I'd love to post some recipes here and there, and I'd love to hear your suggestions as well! First up, this simple lemon sole recipe I made last ...
