Friday Things

This weeks photo was taken at Burke Lake Park in northern VA. One of the things I love most about living in DC is that I’m only 30 minutes from this! This week has been a whirlwind.  In addition to working on multiple projects all with the same deadline followed up by a trip to…

Red Cabbage Salad with Lime Cumin Vinaigrette

One thing I love about joining different foodie groups is the exposure you get to a lot of other great food blogs. I stumbled across this red cabbage salad with lime cumin vinaigrette from platings and pairings the other day, and thought it sounded delicious. The original recipe called for Brussels sprouts, which I love,…

Brown Butter and Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies

Whenever I see a recipe, article, or headline that reads “The best…” I raise an eyebrow. Is it really the best? While poking around on Bon Appetit’s website the other day, I saw a link in the sidebar that read “Could this recipe be the greatest chocolate chip cookie ever?” I of course, clicked on…

Ginger Pull-Apart Bread with Lemon Glaze

I love it when a recipe comes together out of nowhere. Like this ginger pull-apart bread with lemon glaze. My breakfast options were limited this weekend. I didn’t have milk, so no pancakes or waffles. I ran out of bread, so no bacon and toast with eggs. And no bacon, which left me with eggs…

Friday Things

This week’s pic is from my trip to NYC.  My friend and I just left MOMA and we took a break near the CBS building before heading to the subway. I was relaxing on a bench when I snapped it. I don’t know how to describe this week.  It was busy, stressful and exhausting.  But I…

Red Apron Burger Bar

Red Apron Burger Bar was born from the Red Apron Butchery in Union Market. Although I’ve never been to the butchery, I have had the pleasure of dining at The Partisan, another restaurant the was an expansion of another butchery location in Penn Quarter. If you like charcuterie, you’ll love the Partisan. But back to…

Buttermilk Pie

This year I decided to make a “formal” Easter dinner. It was pretty last minute, and there was lots of scrambling around for ingredients. The menu consisted of pork loin with a mustard apple cider glaze, mac and cheese, homemade dinner rolls, salad, and buttermilk pie. The only recipe I have to share with you…

Friday Things

This week’s photo is from the Williamsburg Bridge.  We just finished lunch at Emmy Squared and decided to walk back to the hotel.  We needed to after starting the day off with half a dozen doughnuts from The Doughnut Project! It’s been such a busy week at work. I’ve been working on multiple projects simultaneously…

Emmy Squared

Did you know there was such a thing as Detroit-style pizza? Nor did I, and I’m from Detroit. Apparently, the folks at Emmy Squared in Brooklyn knew because they have a spot that features this glorious pie not far from the Williamsburg Bridge. To me, this is a pizza like no other. It’s a rectangular…

Sausage Egg and Cheese Sandwich

When I was a stay at home mom, Miles would wake up to a homemade breakfast all most every morning. The only exception was when he wanted cereal. Now that I’m a single mom working full time, it’s toast every day. Sometimes I’ll batch cook waffles or scones, but it’s usually just the toast. Today…

Classic Yellow Funfetti Cake

Spring always puts me in a festive mood, especially when it’s bright and sunny out, and the flowers are just beginning to bloom. I wanted to bring that feeling of spring into the house, so what better way than to make a classic yellow funfetti cake. I’m really into adding sprinkles to just about everything….

English Muffins

I’ve had an English muffin bread recipe sitting around for a while now that I’ve never been motivated to try, and I’ve realized that it’s because I really want to make English muffins. Most of the recipes I found showed English muffins that looked like they came from the market, fully of nooks and crannies….
