Truffled Pappardelle with Pancetta and Asparagus

Have you carried over any routines from your childhood household to your adult life? I have retained so many that I’m 95% sure I have morphed into my mother.

Pumpkin Spice Crispy Treats

Hey there! I hope you had a great weekend. Mine was wonderful, just too short. I could always use one more day. If someone ran a presidential campaign on the platform of a nationwide 3 day weekend they would have my vote. Sadly I think all hope is lost on that front for this election.… Continue reading Pumpkin Spice Crispy Treats

Quick Pork Chops with Apples and Sage Cream Sauce

Do you ever get stuck in a rut when it comes to an ingredient? When I was a kid my mom made (really excellent) pork chops dipped in an egg wash and tossed with breadcrumbs and topped with onions.

Ham, Gruyere and Apple Panini

Well hi there! Sorry for the silence in these parts the past few days. We unexpectedly adopted a kitten on Monday and the past two days have been full of vet appointments and crawling under the bed to socialize with our little Miss Elle. The inspiration for her name? That’s right, Stranger Things. We’re big… Continue reading Ham, Gruyere and Apple Panini
