Tomorrow is Fri-yay! And I know exactly what I’ll be sipping when the work day is done (and on my best Fridays, post yoga, too). This is my go-to cocktail, especially during the summer months. It’s my idea of the perfect G&T, and even many friends who aren’t usually a fan of the classic enjoy my take. For starters, the gin AND the tonic matters. I was introduced to both Hendrick’s and Fever Tree during […]
Johnny and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary this past weekend and instead of heading out to dinner, we decided to make one of our favorite meals in, restaurant-style filet mignon. This time around, Johnny surprised me and added surf to the plate as well with lobster tails. I’ve prepared filet several times this way now and I swear it is fool-proof, and better than the grill! We were surprised how easy the lobster tail […]
‘Tis the season for cookies, desserts and lots of indulgence! And if you have any sort of food sensitivity, this time of year can be extra stressful or rather disappointing when you realize all of the sweets you have to miss out on.

Ready or not, Thanksgiving is next week and chances are you’re planning on doing some cooking – and of course, eating! I’ve accumulated a few of my favorite fall recipes over the years and even cooked the turkey for Thanksgiving last year, which followed with requests to cook the bird again this year.
I like an easy, healthy breakfast that starts my day with the good stuff and keeps me full through the morning, and overnight oats do the trick. There are tons of variations out there, but I’ve learned that a simple recipe with a few twists lead to a simple and satisfying start to my week.
I’ve been cooking at home a lot lately and while I’m neither a vegetarian nor vegan by any definition, the eating habits related to each are something I’m trying to stick to more regularly. Additionally, Johnny and I have frequented the farmer’s market and have been stocking up with veggies for the week.
I have a huge sweet tooth and I’m exploring alternative ways to satisfy it that don’t include (or at least use a lot less of) dairy or refined sugar and that use natural, whole, raw, good-for-you ingredients.
