North End Boston Brownies
Last weekend I was invited to tour Boston and the Old North Church with American Heritage Chocolate . I love both chocolate and history, so I happily said yes. Little did I know that it would be one of the most educational weekends I’ve had since, well, I can’t even remember. I’ll tell you more ...
6 Tips for a Successful Spring Detox [Lean Up Soup Recipe]
Ahhh, wake up! Spring is here. It’s time to get moving! I don’t know about you, but during winter, I seem to hibernate in my house. Usually around 6 pm every night, I put my pajamas on and just stay in for the night. Nothing can get me out of the house when it’s freezing! So when spring arrives, I
Corn, Bacon, Basil, and Cheddar Quiche
I have been on a big quiche kick lately. There is a great little coffee shop in Woods Hole called Pie In The Sky that makes my favorite quiche around. The crust is a little sweeter than what I would normally use for a quiche, but that is why I love their quiche so much. The crust is [...] The post

Raw Sugar Mini Pavlovas with Maple Soaked Berries
One of the best parts about blogging is the community it creates. Nothing makes me happier or more proud than seeing my food blogger friends live out their biggest dreams. I never get tired of walking around the book store and knowing so many of the authors of the gorgeous cookbooks that are being
Snow Day Boredom Busters
We’ve had a lot of snow around these parts. (And expecting some more this weekend.) And that means lots of days off of school. We had a full week off and then a day here and there for another couple of weeks. The first few days we were fine to be lazy and watch movies and relax. But after day [...]
