Smoked Mozzarella, Cauliflower, and Portobello Frittata

Things that go well together: Eggs and cheese Trail running and M&Ms Fritos and chocolate pudding (trust me on this) Knitting with friends and chocolate chip cookies Rainy days and good books. I could go on… But really, I’m going to focus on eggs and cheese right now. This is [...]

I had two fantastic runs this weekend.  First up: 10 miles on a beautiful path with Mike and Ellie. I woke up kind of dreading the run and I was in a pretty crabby mood, but about 3 miles in everything was good again. It was warm, my legs [...]

I guess all jobs are like this to some extent, but teaching really seems to be one with big ups and downs. On Tuesday I felt like the a totally awesome teacher. The activity went well, the kids were into it, and they all really seemed to get the [...]

This was a really good weekend, and it started off with a really good pizza. My favorite thing about having 60+ food blogs in Google reader is that I can find inspiration for just about anything. And since I’m pretty much always in the market for new pizza ideas, [...]

Today, Ellie is four months old.   She’s only been in our lives a short time, but I can’t believe how much has changed.  Getting up at 5 AM is easier than I ever imagined it would be (she still hasn’t mastered sleeping through the night, so I’ve seen [...]

Tortellini and Kale Soup

There are a million things to love about San Francisco, but this is one of my favorites: We’re members, and this weekend, we gave Ellie her first science museum experience. Our first stop was the living roof, which is covered with native plants and absorbs 98% of the water [...]
