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, […]

Feels Like the First Time

Above you will find the first meal I made in my wonderful little house. Granted, I cannot give you the recipe for the Vodka Sauce since I have not yet visited the local Winn-dixie for tomatoes and silly you, I can’t get my hands on alcohol! I thought I would share what my first real […]

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 […]
