     sav-er [say-ver]

     a. One who saves things she believes to be especially nice or well-executed to be enjoyed at a later          date.

     b. A sometimes irrational being.

     c. Exhibits endearingly odd behavior.

Watch out, Merriam Webster. There’s a new dictionary-writer in town.

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!

maple caramel corn + a review!


I’ve traveled quite a bit this year.

Florida, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Seattle, Alaska (yes, Alaska!), and Canada. A lot of miles under my belt!
