Existential Cake Crisis

For years I’ve been attributing meaning to the cake and frosting my family members want me to make on their birthdays. It’s always the same: I’m ready to make something elaborate, something impressive, and they want boxed yellow cake mix with canned chocolate frosting. Every damn time. And I beg. I say, I can do […]

Black Bottom Cupcakes For Charity With Bake It Happen!

I love to bake, I really do. For me, baking is its own reward, getting to create something that I can share with other people and make them happy through food. But with the Bake It Happen campaign, my baking actually raises money – and no, I don’t have to sell the baked goods! It’s […]

Some Eggs Are Making Me Sick

I’ve been meaning to write about this for a long time. Someone other than me must be suffering from this and not know it. It took me months to figure out that eggs were making me sick to my stomach. Maybe I can help someone figure it out quicker than I did. About fifteen months […]

And The Grossest Spoiled Food Item You’ve Ever Found In Your House Or Car is…

Yesterday I was tidying up the house a bit in anticipation of the kids coming home today from sleep away camp. Jake’s been gone for almost two weeks, Fiona for almost six. Basically I didn’t want them to know how slovenly I’d been while they were gone. I came across Jake’s NY Yankees lunchbox in […]

Creamy Hershey’s Syrup Dessert Dip Recipe

[The following post is sponsored by Hershey] My family uses a lot of Hershey’s Syrup, especially in summer. My son Jake and I both love chocolate milk, and I’ve been incorporating it into my exercise recovery. With the right balance of carbs to protein, chocolate milk helps me recover after my longer runs (and man, […]

Take the Pompeian Pledge For August!

[The following post is sponsored by Pompeian.] When Pompeian asked me to write a sponsored post about olive oil, I told myself that it would be a no-brainer. I already use a lot of olive oil when cooking. It’s delicious on pasta and pizza (and I eat a lot of pasta and pizza!). I always […]

Win A Hershey’s Syrup Sundae Prize Pack!

[The following post is sponsored by Hershey’s] A few months ago some new people moved in next door, and they have a fire pit. I’m totally jealous of their fire pit, mostly because I love s’mores! They’re the best part of camping. In fact, pretty much the only part of camping that I actually like. […]

Easy Blackened Chicken Recipe

I posted a picture of my husband’s favorite chicken on Instagram earlier, and my friend Christy requested the recipe. Happy to post it – it’s so easy even this vegetarian can do it! My husband used to stop by the grocery store on his way home from work on Fridays and buy one of their […]
