I remember stories of my friend Lou’s family and the amazing dishes his mom made at the holidays. This time I decided to create my own recipe for pastitsio… definitely a few unique ingredients, but it’s a new favorite in my house!
On Halloween we took a hike in Arlington at the Alewife Brook Reservation. In this post I reminisce about Halloweens past, and the beauty we discovered so close to home, and a snowy Halloween that is so different than those celebrations of days past.
I love Maine, don’t you? And when the border finally reopened to MA residents, we knew our next hike would be there. Mount Agamenticus is an easy hike, kid friendly, and near so many cool places for breakfast and lunch. Why not go this weekend?
Looking for a tasty way to use up leftovers? Especially pork and turkey? This is THE dish you’re waiting for. All in one and it bakes quickly. Why not try a cheesy butternut squash and pork pasta bake tonight?
Homemade applesauce is one of the easiest recipes, and a great way to use up apples when your day of picking turned into way more apples than you can eat!
We returned to a favorite hike of ours at Walden Pond in Concord MA today. We arrived early and were greeted with the most beautiful autumn foliage, fog lifting off the water, and a peaceful hike around the pond!
An easy and delicious way to make roast beef. Brown it, pop it in the slowcooker and you’ve got a good 6 hours or so to do your thing! Whether it’s a sunday, a weekday or any day in between. And of course how could I not include memories from my own Sunday dinners with family back in the 60s
As we enjoy the avgolemono soup I made last week I think of friendship, and what friendship means to me. What does it mean to you?
What is better than a September walk on the beach on a cold day, margaritas under the trees, and a warm bean soup and cornbread to come home to? If you agree, then check out this post! You’ll want to make it today!!!
Today I roasted a Picnic Pork Shoulder and created my own Char Siu sauce, including making my own Hoisin Sauce and Five Spice Powder and it brought back memories of trips to Chinatown when I was young.
