I’ve had an unusually busy weekend! First, a friend I haven’t seen in a while came over and helped me with a new spring pasta recipe. It was delicious, and even vegetarian – which I know I don’t often feature on this site. It was great spending time with her. Here’s a sneak peek: Then, being the nerd that I am, a few friends and I started a new tabletop campaign on Sunday, and played for something like eight or nine hours. I haven’t played Dungeons & Dragons since college I think, so I’m incredibly rusty, but it was a […]
In which I reveal my geeky love of comic books with a movie mini-review, chat about cookbook clubs and Vivian Howard’s Deep Run Roots, and preview a traditional shrub recipe for later this week.
I have so much I want to talk about this week, but I’ll try not to go overboard. On the personal side, I finally preserved some citrus! If you’ve never had Salt Preserved Meyer Lemons before, they are a really funky, bright addition to sauces, salads, pastas, and whatever else you can think of. A little goes far. They have a long history and have a strong cult following, although I will admit I’m still figuring out how best to utilize them. More on that in the future. Oh, the Oscars last night. I hadn’t planned to watch, but really enjoyed […]
Follow my blog with Bloglovin Forgive me for a lack of recipe posts last week. I’ve been a bit behind, and my standards for what I post are pretty high. I’ve been accumulating some one-shot recipe posts complete with testing and photographs though – you can look forward to some good recipes in the coming weeks.

Here’s a taste of what I’ve been working on: […]
This week was pretty rough in our household. I’ll spare you the details, but between my knee injury continuing to keep me off my feet and both Sam and I coming down with the flu one after the other, it hasn’t been easy. I’m still recovering, but I managed to come out of my illness haze long enough to pull together some links for you. Hope you enjoy, and have a great (and healthy) Valentine’s Day tomorrow – we can all use the excuse to spread some love. Speaking of the holiday, I found The Dark Origins of Valentine’s Day amusing and […]
Welcome to Thymeline, a new semi-weekly series where I post updates on my life and goings-on and a list of my favorite links from around the web. I always run into things I’d like to share, so I figure this is the best way to do it! *** Like much of the country, yesterday we celebrated Super Bowl Sunday! It was our very first tiny get-together in the new apartment, and my husband and I have been looking forward to it for months. We briefly debated cancelling after my knee injury, but we decided to go through with it. We knew the small […]
