ShareLooking out my window this morning at the about-to-burst magnolia tree in our yard, it dawned on me that it’s now been one full year since we bought our house on Dewey Street and moved to the ‘burbs from the big city. The first few months were a frenzy of activity. Updates to the house […]

ShareI hate New Years resolutions. It seems to me that the reason we make them is because we have somehow failed in our attempts to accomplish whatever it is we’re resolving, again, to do.  Be healthy. Lose weight.  Spend less.  Excersice more. Why is it that each January, our resolutions are the exact same as […]

ShareSince my last post I’ve done a rather large overhaul on our pantry and our fridge. So far, so good; we’ve been able to eat mostly whole foods and from scratch meals, aside from two nights when we were out (see my comment about not being too nuts about the resolution). In my excitement (ok, […]

ShareOne of the things I’m struggling with, move-wise, is the fact that we’ll now have this whole house to take care of on our own.  That sounds horribly lazy, I realize.  Let me explain. We have a decent amount of work to do to bring our new abode up to speed. It’s a 1912 Colonial, […]

ShareSome nights I just don’t feel like cooking.  There.  I said it.  Happy? But then I remember that it’s not just me anymore.  Five years ago I would have just picked up the phone and dialed my favorite sushi place.  Done and done. The problem with that now is that I made a deal with […]

ShareI think I may have already broken my New Year’s resolutions.  The thing is, I didn’t really speak them out loud.  So if I were a dishonest person I could just forget about them entirely and pretend I never made any.  Ugh.  Sometimes I really hate honesty. They were, as follows: 1) Only one serving […]

ShareI can never figure out why so many people are afraid of fish.  They’re healthy, tasty, and unless you’re cage diving, they usually aren’t that scary.  What I’ve concluded is this: people don’t like that “fishy” smell. I get it.  Especially if you’re living in a small, enclosed space. Here’s the thing: fish shouldn’t smell […]

ShareAs a born and bred Marylander, I’ve grown up with a love of and attachment to the sea that borders on obsession. “Oh what are men compared to rocks and mountains?” Yeah, yeah, I get it. But whenever I get further than 2.5 hours from the shore, I start to feel a little land-locked. I’m […]

ShareI love shrimp, but I’m always looking for a way to spice them up a bit.  Hailing from Baltimore, I grew up with peel and eat shrimp that were spicy from the gallons of Old Bay they’d been cooked in (those of us with origins in the Chesapeake area would likely bleed Old Bay.  It […]

ShareThis week I geeked out and went running with a backpack. I was going to the Greenmarkets, which are exactly three miles from my apartment, so I figured why not kill two birds with one stone. I needed the backpack because I was toting along my camera, plus my shopping bags for whatever I purchased. […]
