white pizza with scallions and parsley


I may or may not have eaten this pizza for breakfast.

By “may or may not,” I mean I most certainly did eat this pizza for breakfast.

whole wheat garlic knots


Check it out! Another savory recipe!

I usually don’t order garlic knots when I go for pizza because, well, I fill up on pizza.  But that’s not to say I’m not a huge garlic knot fan.  Bread, garlic, oil – what’s not to love?!  I’m getting hungry just thinking about it!  Someone bring me a slice of pizza and some garlic knots?  Please and thank you!

sandwiches galore!


I have news!  And sandwiches!

I recently joined the crew over at The Next Great Generation as a food writer!  I’m just getting started, but so far it’s given me the chance to explore the Boston food scene which is definitely exciting.

For my first post on the site, I decided to make three really simple but really delicious panini using five or less ingredients (salt, pepper, and butter or oil excluded).  Incidentally, I think these may very well be the first savory recipes I’m sharing.  Groundbreaking!

Check out these beauties:




Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner. Dessert. Snack.  These cover all the bases.  You can find the simple but super satisfying recipes right here!

Happy panini making!

chocolate pot de crème with caramel pretzel crunch


A few years ago, my grandma wanted to take me into New York City for a fun, relaxing girls’ day out.  I was responsible for planning the entire day – from what we’d do to where we’d eat. 

At the time, I have to admit, I wasn’t a huge fan of the city.  I didn’t see much excitement in going there.  Too many people, too many buildings, and not nearly enough fresh air.  In the land of “so much to do, so little time,” I struggled to think of activities that would make both of us happy.

moonlight baking is tradition.

I blame my friends.  That’s right, I blame them for this habit of mine – ours.  But I suppose that’s okay, right?  I mean, there’s not all that much wrong with a midnight snack . . . especially when it’s freshly baked!      

I love our late night baking (even when that usually means dumping brownie mix into a bowl, whipping it with some eggs, throwing it in the oven, and then returning to the episode of Law and Order: SVU that we’re watching).  And I love being able to enjoy the smell coming from the oven before the brownies are ready to be eaten.  I even love the anticipation of waiting for them to cool down just enough so that we don’t have to worry about burning our mouths off on piping hot brownies.       

I just love the tradition.  It’s perfect.
