Chicago at Night

This past July, I confirmed something I’ve suspected was true for a long time: Chicago is the perfect place for a long weekend trip. I’ve wanted to go forever, especially since I was supposed to attend a conference there a few years ago (but ended up not going), and had to hear my entire office […]

Kale Caesar Pizza

September 16, 2016 Dinner

Alright, this isn’t so much a ‘summer dinner’ as a ‘dinner I made in the summer’, but it’s so incredibly good I have to share it. A good caesar salad is one of my joys in life, and if you’d like to read approximately 5,000 words on why, you can click here. I wrote that […]

Goat Cheese & Arugula Pizza

February 18, 2014 Dinner

Updated with a new picture May 25, 2016 I mentioned in my Blog-iversary post the other day that I wanted to stop feeling pressure to only post styled photos, because “Sometimes you make an amazing pizza and it’s 9pm, and it’s the most delicious thing you’ve eaten all week, and all you have is an […]

Pizza Dough

August 14, 2011 Bread

One of the blog-olutions I made in February on my 1st Blog-iversary was to finally tackle my issues with yeast this year. Something about it has always made me nervous, and it’s always been one of the things I’ve been reluctant to take on in the kitchen.

East Coast Eats: St. John’s

March 11, 2011 Bakeries & Restaurants

I had a super fun, though way too brief, visit with Danielle in St. John’s after my work trip to Halifax last week. Obviously we got up to some good eats (and maybe a trip to Bulk Barn for peanut butter M&Ms and mini-eggs). The main downtown strip in St. John’s is George Street, and it’s […]

Basil Pesto & Gluten-Free Pizza

February 20, 2010 Elimination Challenge

We’re in the home stretch y’all and the Elimination portion of the challenge is quickly coming to a close. Tomorrow I will begin to re-introduce foods to see if I have any reactions. But if I have one regret, it’s that I didn’t get my act together and visit the Voila Gluten-Free Bakeree  at the very beginning […]
