New Year Organization

I started the New Year out with some organization projects. My pantry is always an ongoing project. Last year we put shelves on the inside of the door. I kept my food wraps there (plastic, aluminium, parchment, etc.) but they often come flying off when the door moves. So yesterday we installed a shelf just … Read more

Martha Mondays: Brie and Ham Sandwich

Ana at Sweet Almond Tree chose Brie and Ham Sandwich for this week. It was definitely an easy recipe, that’s for sure. I ended up wrapping mine in parchment and putting them in the oven to heat them up and melt the cheese. I also used a ciabatta baguette, which is a little flatter and … Read more

You can either use purchased guacamole or make your own easy substitute: Lazy Man’s Guac Smash one avocado and top with the juice of 1/4 a lime and … Read more

Eat Your Brussels Sprouts

I’m married to a man who doesn’t much like Brussels sprouts. But I happen to love them, so I’m always looking for ways to convince him to eat them. One of my tricks is to roughly chop them. They no longer look like little cabbages and are somehow much more approachable when they are soft … Read more

I made this great little salmon dish (and promptly forgot to take a photo). It’s made with lemon olive oil (buy it in the oil section of your grocery store) and ponzu, a citrus soy sauce you can find in the Asian section of your grocery store. It was light, citrusy, delicious and super quick … Read more
