Prepping for Blizzard

Superbowl? What Superbowl? The only thing on the news now is #Blizzardof2015. I refuse to call it Juno! I hate this practice of giving every major storm some ridiculous human-sounding name. If it’s so memorable, I think the year will do, a la the Blizzard of ’78.  { rant over } We’ve had some pretty good… Continue reading Prepping for Blizzard

Carbonara 2.0: company edition

This is simpler because it doesn’t require peeling or boiling, and it can be made the day before. In fact, next year that’s what I plan to do… Continue reading Scalloped Potatoes

What I Got for Christmas

Happy 2015! I hope you had as wonderful a holiday and New Year as we did. Mark, Georgia and I were all home on a “staycation” from Christmas Eve until yesterday, and it was awesome! We relaxed, hosted Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at our house, visited with one of my best friends from New York, and had a family reunion… Continue reading What I Got for Christmas
