As I write this I am sitting in my office looking out the window waiting for the Snowpocalypse to hit, aka Winter Storm Juno. When did we start naming winter storms? It seems strange to me. It seems like a way for weather people to get excited when it is not hurricane season. I guess they […]Read More.
Jessica and I are securely in week 2 of Whole 30. So far it’s going really well. My sugar cravings are much less intense than last time. I’m actually enjoying the experience this time. It’s also been really nice to do it along side Jessica. Everything is better with a friend! I first made this […]Read More.
I am in the first week of my second round of Whole 30. I did my first Whole 30 last year and had a great experience. Your can read all about it and see what I ate by clicking here. We decided to do Whole 30 again to help us get back on track after […]Read More.
If you follow us on Facebook, you know that Jessica and I are starting the year off with another Whole 30! We are both excited. I feel much more prepared than I did last time. I am super excited about the way I’m going to feel in about 2 1/2 or 3 weeks, not so […]Read More.
Christmas is over! We survived! Phew. It was touch and go there for a bit. One too many glasses of hot chocolate…and don’t even get me started on the cookies. I can’t even look at them anymore. Not that it stops me from eating them mind you. I just do it with my eyes closed. […]Read More.

I decided to include it in my Holiday Spread because it’s quintessential holiday, fancy fare. Plus, its really fun to photography, so why not make it when Sera Petras is there to take pictures.

With Hanukkah around the corner, I thought I’d try my hand at some Gravlax. My hubby also loves smoked salmon, so it’s also a nice treat for him. We recently did Whole30, and the thing he craved most was a gravlax. Most gravlax is made with sugar, but I replaced the regular sugar with coconut palm […]Read More.
Do you have a foodie in your life who already has everything? I have a feeling that is what our families think about us. But my fellow foodies and I are here to tell you that we have a special affection for unnecessary kitchen gadgets. Now, I will say – not all gadgets are created equal. […]Read More.
Photography by Sera Petras I’ve always found decorating for the holidays somewhat of a challenge. There are so many decisions to make. This is especially true, at least for me, when I have company coming over, even for just a meal. So, this year I thought I’d challenge myself to just go for it. In […]Read More.
