I seem to be the only one in Florida that truly enjoys a good storm. I love it when it rains nonstop all day and I have work to do at home and all the ingredients to make soup are in my pantry. This tropical storm calls for a classic grilled cheese and tomato soup! […]

April is for Showers, June is for Downpours: Roasted Tomato Pasta Sauce

In Florida, rain during the summer is a part of life. Rain boots are a must, the mini umbrella is a staple in most packpacks, and the freak monsoon is never too unexpected. See, unlike most, I’m a fan of rainy days- my bed is comfy and Mad Men keeps me company. In order to […]

Deep Fried Love: Toasty Raviolis

My weekend was wonderful. It started off with a crazy win for FSU Basketball against Virginia Tech and ended with a fantastic wine-filled night with friends. It was great just getting back to the things that matter most to me: my friends. I made zucchini bread, somewhat made up for old times with a friend, […]

One Nice Dinner: Tasty Tortellini Bake

Quino-what? Little Quinoa Cakes for Dinner

I love everything about cookbooks. I especially like the ones with photos on every page and amusing commentary- I like to read them like books. The Borders here in town is going out of business and I gathered up a couple of really great cookbooks. I like to consider them table art after I’m done […]

Easy Summer Dinner: Roasted Grape Tomato Pasta Toss

I wrote a bio for an art class recently and I talked about how I get enthusiastic about everything. Even if I’m mad, I’m enthusiastic about being mad, do you know what I’m saying. Good food gets me really happy and usually I think of meal ideas a couple hours in advance and then I […]

Happy Birthday Joshua!

This is Joshua. He is the worst and the best, the calm and the storm, the problem and the cause. All in all, he is one of my very closest friends. He is the most rational person I know and will only give me honest answers- which I can thank and hate him for. Joshua […]

Monday Night Meatballs

I feel like these late summer months for the rest of the world are somewhat like Florida’s faux Fall or Winter, even. It rains every afternoon and can get dreary and to bearable temperatures. My boss had soup for lunch today, that’s what it feels like in SoFla everyday between 2 and 4:30. Meatballs just […]
