Woodside Farm Creamery Hockessin DE

Noshing Local: Woodside Creamery Hockessin, DE

To say that we packed a lot of living into this weekend would be putting things lightly. I always feel like there's more Handsome and I should be doing. Bigger adventures, things to be seen, places to go. Well, for one, we did not go to the Cecil County Fair. And that makes me kind of sad... But then I realize we went to Cambridge, Annapolis, Downingtown, and Media, worked, road, ran, snapped photos, and dined very very well. We laughed, enjoyed the company of good friends, played with the dogs, and even caught a few moments of Casino Royale on BBC America. All in all, it was a fantastic weekend. As for the run... It was a 5 mile or 10 mile trail run. Given that I have a new goal of a marathon, I wanted to start kicking some distance out. A friend and I went in with good intentions. Comradery was going to get me through, but poor decisions were made by all on previous nights dinner and I think we both were suffering from a little early morning humidity induced nausea... Which made … [Read More...]

This is another recipe from the beautiful collection featured in  Charcutería: The … [Read More...]

Tortellini Pasta Salad

So, as far as food blogs go, I'm kind of missing the mark lately.

Oops. If summer flew by for me, how do you guys with kids do it?! I mean … [Read More...]

Watermelon Salad with a Balsamic Reduction

Watermelon Salad from PasstheSushi.com

I feel like I haven't been cooking as much this summer, when I think the truth is, I just have gotten way to used to cooking as much as I do and it doesn't feel like as much. The other day I knocked out three different cupcakes and icing and realized it didn't take all day and wasn't that big a deal. I remember when piping icing used to be huge … [Read More...]

How many of you tuned in for the Oscars? Did you throw big parties or just sit back with classy treats and enjoy Hollywood's tribute to the movies this year? I'm not one to watch awards shows. I don't watch enough TV or many new movies so they are rather lost on me. But I can't help but get caught up in the roar of twitter, internet and old … [Read More...]

Weeknight Fettuccine with Sausage & Kale

Kale_pasta_0100

Early sunsets are not good for a darned thing. With the sun setting at like noon, I've been acting like an old woman. Just feed me, give me my pills, and put me to bed to the tune of Jeopardy. Ok, maybe not that bad, but it certainly feels like it. I never knew I was a summer person until this year. I don't want to cook as much, go out as much, … [Read More...]
