Every year, K and I opt to spend Valentine’s day at home.  K usually plans something for us to do out on a day that isn’t Valentine’s day, in order to avoid the crush of pink and red drenched love, and on actual Valentine’s day, I cook.  It’s exactly what both of us want to do, and … Continue reading

Cook: Gorgonzola + Potato Soup

I think it’s safe to say that it’s officially soup season.  It’s been soup season up here for a while, but I’ve even heard from my Texas friends that it’s finally getting cooler down there, which means I can share this soup, encourage you to make it, and not have to make any disclaimers about … Continue reading

  Last night I made beer braised short ribs and they were delicious.  They were also definitely grown-up food.  Fancy short ribs and fancy potatoes with fancy plating. What I’m writing about now though is completely opposite of that and honestly I don’t remember the last time I was more excited about dinner.  Remember pizza bagels? … Continue reading
