Snowy Day Baking

Snow day number 5! January is only about halfway over and at this rate we’ll be in school until July☹ I honestly don’t mind though, I love this gift of an extra day home to binge Netflix and enjoy kitty snuggles. After a few hours of Reign, (please don’t judge me) I decided to put […]

Put An Egg On It!

Well 2018 has certainly made an impression so far. It has been FRIGID in Maine for over a week, with temperatures barely above 0, which makes you want to stay snuggled in bed all day and watch Netflix. We’ve also been hit with multiple feet of snow, which you expect being winter in Maine and […]

Soup’s On

We had a bit of a cold snap this week, like had to find my ice scraper in the morning cold snap. We’ve been lucky lately with our weather so when the cold does start creeping in it’s a bit of a shock. But it is Maine and winter is coming so we need to […]

Overnight Oats

One of my goals for this school year was to be more organized at both home and work, I thought an easy way to hop on the organized train would be to prep lunches breakfast for the week on Sunday #mealprepsunday!  I was good about cutting veggies and pairing them with small containers of humus, […]

Friday Night Stromboli

What a week! There was a powerful storm here on Sunday that left most of Southern Maine without power and left Andrew and I without…. the internet. For four whole days we had no Netflix, cable, AmazonPrime, Pinterest…nothing. We managed to survive by playing games and Redbox rentals, thank goodness for Redbox!  In all seriousness […]

Salade Niçoise

I cannot believe that we are halfway through August already! Summers in Maine are the best and I am  thoroughly enjoying my time off. Going back to work in a couple of weeks is going to be a difficult adjustment for sure. In between beach runs and lunches with friends, I’ve been making some really […]

Berry Picking Time!

Maine winters can seem like they are never going to end. They are cold, snowy, and dark but if you plan well during the summer months you can have a little taste of summer during those bleak winter days. One way to do that is to preserve the fruit that is available during those warmer […]

The Summer of Jess

I  just discovered the show Seinfeld a couple of years ago, I was 8 when the show first aired and thought Seinfeld was something for “older people”. Well I guess I’m in the “older people” category now because I’ve been watching the reruns on TBS , I now know who the Soup Nazi is and […]

April Fools’?

I wish it were an April Fools’ joke but it’s not, the snow is coming down and the roads are looking messy. Andrew still needs to head into the office this morning though, so I’m whipping up his favorite buttermilk pancakes. Snowy days call for pancakes, and these are the fluffiest, most comforting ones that you will […]

Mousseline au Chocolat

Tonight I made the yummiest dessert! It was Mousseline au Chocolat from Mastering the Art of French Cooking by Julia Child. Most of the recipes that we’ve made from this book have been savory and were very involved. This only took an hour of hands on time, including cleanup (we don’t have a dishwasher) and […]

Swiss Fondue

I know the first day of Spring was on Monday but it hasn’t felt too Springy around here. We had snow showers yesterday and the temperature has dropped, so we’re having warm and gooey fondue for dinner tonight. Last April Andrew and I went on an epic road trip across France into Switzerland. We had […]
