Cool: Angel Hair with Broccoli and White Beans

I love pasta.  There’s never a time when I’m not in the mood for pasta.  I like it in all forms, with all sauces.  It’s my favorite. The only problem with liking pasta as much as I do, is liking pasta as much as I do.  It’s no secret that a big pasta dinner isn’t … Continue reading

Cook: White Bean and Potato Soup

Something potentially catastrophic happened last night, or something potentially life changing happened last night.  It’s too soon to tell which, at the moment.  You see, I got a deep fryer for Christmas.  And yes, I do say that with a grain of shame, but with mostly deep fat fried pride. The irony of getting a … Continue reading

Did you all have a good Fourth of July?  We spent the day indoors, avoiding the massive crowds in Boston, drinking homemade Sangria, and playing Risk.  Which I’m terrible at, by the way.  Seriously bad.  All day it looked like it was going to rain, and all day it didn’t.  Even so, we piddled around … Continue reading

We’re in it.  It’s full-on Summer now.  I’m even wearing shorts, and I hate wearing shorts.  But, it’s what you have to do in the Summer, and folks, it’s Summer.

Three day weekends are glorious, aren’t they?  Three day weekends that feel like three day weekends are even more so.  Three day weekends in which I get to relax, go hiking, enjoy the sun, try (in vain) to get some color on these legs while sitting outside on my stoop to write a long, long … Continue reading

I’ve been coming at you with a bunch of really simple recipes as of late, which can also give you insight into my life as of late.  Not that I’ve been overly busy, no, I just have been taking more advantage of these longer, warmer, days and spending some time outdoors after work instead of … Continue reading

Cook: Creamy White Bean Soup

I’ve been thinking about this soup for a while, but every time I got around to making it, I either didn’t have the right ingredients, or wasn’t in the mood for soup.  That’s the rub of planning your week’s meals on Sunday:  sometimes, on Thursday, you just have to call an audible and boil some … Continue reading
