{Review}: Home Cooked by Anya Fernald

Quick Review: A thoughtful, approachable, visually appealing cookbook that makes even The Most exotic recipe seem ¬†within reach. (This post contains affiliate links. That means when you click on a link, I get a small commission.) Isn’t this book pretty? I’m definitely guilty of judging a book by it’s cover. The photographs and layout inside …

The Lazy Cinnamon Bun.

I have a terrible, well-meaning habit of offering help without really thinking it through. I just want to be helpful! Is that so wrong? No, I guess not but sometimes, it really comes back to bite me in the tush.  The PTA is having their annual 5K tomorrow, and our elementary school’s Odyssey of the …

Menu Mondays: Alice Edition

1. Alice made the menu this week. She even wrote it all down. Kindergarten is incredible. Also, she is making the perogies, probably. She made them last week and did a great job.  2. The Chickn’ Nuggets are from Quorn, a brand that I really like because it doesn’t use soy-based protein like most vegetarian …

Balabusta Cred.

The minute the weather cools off, I go into balabusta mode. Do you know this word, balabusta? I’ve heard it before, in the little snippets of Yiddish swirling around, but didn’t know what it meant. I looked it up after reading about a cookbook from the restaurant of the same name. Balabusta is a Yiddish expression describing a …

Presto Pesto, Vegan by Default.

It’s been awhile since I wrote a food post, but I made a pesto sauce tonight that I want to record for posterity and share with you all, because it was delicious, if I say so myself! Because I’m pregnant/lazy/tired/hot/etc, I haven’t done a big shop yet this week and I’ve been scrounging around in …
