Grapefruit Margaritas

When it comes to cocktails, we are margarita people. You know it’s the weekend when you walk into our kitchen and see the small mountain of juiced lime halves on the counter. Life is too short to use the neon green stuff from a bottle so we pooled our fun money to buy an electric [...]

Grapefruit Meltaways

There might be no better way to cure the winter blahs than with a big bag of winter citrus. Our citrus trees are still very young but we hope to get plenty of fruit from them this year. Until then, I’m relying on low prices at the grocery store and my mom. She brought over [...]

Artichoke Lemon & Chicken Pasta

Creamy Lemon Artichoke Pasta

This dish from So Tasty So Yummy is one of our new favorite discoveries. It has all the goodies: chicken, bacon, pasta, artichokes, lemon, and just a little cream. It’s hearty enough to be a one-bowl meal… but you’re gonna make a veggie or side salad because it is still January I made it right [...]

Roasted Green Beans

It can be tough to find a healthy side at the many holiday dinners that we attend. Over the last couple of years, I’ve made it a sort of tradition to show up with the one healthy side that almost no one else wants to eat. There is always broccoli… baked in a vat of [...]

Chicken and Spaghetti with Lemon Cream Sauce

The produce bowl on the counter sits in comically sad shape: half a bulb of garlic and 9 lemons. 9 starting-to-look-sad lemons. I love lemon. Like love-love lemon. Jason? Not so crazy about lemons if they don’t come in the form of lemonade. He’s somewhat forgiving if they’re in dessert form but in savory dishes? [...]

Lemony Penne with Chicken and Arugula

What’s for dinner? We’re having Penne [knock knock knock] Penne [knock knock knock] Penne [knock knock knock] Yep, I thought it was *so* clever when I did that I love Sheldon. His geeky, humorous, and often mind-boggling habits remind me of… well, um, someone I know. [whispers] and married (Have no idea what I’m talking [...]

Blackberry-Lemon Buttermilk Cake

About a year ago, I flipped passed a recipe for Raspberry Buttermilk Cake in Gourmet. It wasn’t really my kind of cake. 1 layer? No frosting? No thanks. And then I found myself with a mountain of blackberries and few new ideas so I gave the cake a chance. I love the simplicity of this [...]
