Friday Things

I am one lucky lady.  I’ve been celebrating my birthday for a week now with my coworkers, family, and friends.  And I have one more big out planned this weekend! I can say with confidence that I’ve eaten my weight in food and will be working out frantically over the next few weeks to burn off…

Matchbox

I’ve been celebrating my birthday all week, but for my actual birthday, I spent a quiet evening with Miles at Matchbox. We practically lived here when we first moved to the city but started branching out to other places over time. We were both starving and wanted pizza (which is amazing) since it had been…

Bolognese Hand Pies

Miles and I were making our usual rounds at the market and stopped to stare at the meat counter.  It’s always a struggle trying to decide what to eat.  I was really in the mood for pasta with meat sauce and caught Miles in the right mood, because he agreed.  Then he admitted that he…

Woodward Table Food

I’m really making headway through my “ultimate fried chicken sandwich” list. I decided to start my birthday week a little early and treat myself to a delicious chicken sandwich. I was very lucky to find that Woodward Takeout Food (“WTF”) was close to the office. WTF is the casual sister restaurant to Woodward Table. The…

Potato Chip Marshmallow Treats

I’m beginning to realize that most of what I bake starts out as a craving, the desire to silence my inner picky eater or a means of clearing out my cupboard and not wanting to throw anything out.  This recipe falls into the latter category.  Miles wanted wavy chips for his lunch last week, but…

Friday Things

I’ve finally arrived at the end of another long work week and looking forward to diving into a happy hour martini! Getting ready to kick off my Mother’s day/birthday week by having breakfast with a dear friend on Saturday. I’m going to leave this recipe laying for chocolate waffles sitting around for Miles to see…

Blackened Salmon Grilled Cheese

I have to start this post with an apology.  I didn’t anticipate taking pictures or posting this recipe for a blackened salmon grilled cheese, but this was one of those “happy accident” moments.  About a month ago Miles boycotted salmon because he found a bone twice in his fillet.  While this is valid, it severely…

Bing Cherry Doughnuts

My recipe for bing cherry doughnuts was completely inspired by the 7-11 slurpee doughnut that debuted about a month ago.  It looked so pretty and pink and reminded me of the strawberry doughnuts I ate as a child.  I’ve decided to create my own version.  I course debated for a while over where or not…
