My starter is dead and I have to start all over again. Sigh.
I have been on a brag-worthy eat-at-home streak for the past few months, but my meal planning habits have been nothing to aspire to. This is creating a chain reaction: cook my latest whim -> head to the grocery store ’cause I don’t have everything I need -> repeat -> throw grocery budget out window. […]More
I decide to keep tracking all of our at-home meals after we wrapped the 30athome challenge in January. Every “X” added is deeply satisfying and every meal eaten out has felt like a well-deserved break. I have no real goals beyond the tracking for the year, but am stoked to see where we end up […]More

There are green things all over the farmer’s market and if you partake in a CSA, your box is probably overflowing with everything from collards to kale to arugula. The only downside to this green wonder is storing it all! For that, a couple of […]More
This is a great little cookbook for winter cooking. It is basically my December CSA box. Vegetable-focused sides, salads, mains, and even breakfasts to use up those collards, sweet potatoes, and root veggies. Eat Your Books hasn’t indexed it yet, so a quick list of some of my favorites: Fluffy Sweet Potato Biscuits Pecan Sweet […]More
