Swiss Chard, Portobello, and Swiss Cheese Sandwiches


It’s FALL! Last week started with 100+ degree temperatures and ended in the 70s.  Running has been significantly more enjoyable, and the sky has been pretty, too. Ellie has a new obsession: refrigerator letters.  I don’t even know how many hours she’s spent moving them from the freezer door […]

Curry Chickpea Salad Sandwiches


This is the first real summer I’ve experienced in two years, and the heat is taking some getting used to.  I ADORE 90+ degree temperatures, but it’s definitely been an adjustment in terms of cooking and working out. I really would rather not turn the house into a sauna […]

Grilled Cheddar and Apple Sandwiches


My first Mother’s Day was a great one. Breakfast in the city, a new pair of shoes, and a run with my two favorite people, one of whom clearly had the time of her life. Ellie (okay, fine… Mike) gave me a 12-pack of Gu, which was a little […]

Sometime last week, I decided I wanted to run a mile on the track. I think I was still riding high on my better-than-expected 8K time, so it seemed like a good idea. I decided Sunday was the day, and didn’t think about it too much for a couple […]

Fig and Chevre Panini

Twitter is not good when you’re as easily swayed by peer pressure as I am. When I was contemplating signing up for Big Sur, there was this… But it’s also really helpful when I’m feeling indecisive. I wanted to bake bread, and there was this… Kelsey didn’t know it, […]

Moroccan Carrot and Goat Cheese Sandwiches with Green Olive Tapenade

Yes, this sandwich has a mouthful of a name, but it is definitely worth making, and is actually deceptively easy once you get going. I’ll take it over a standard wheat-hummus-typical sandwich vegetables sandwich any day. Even Mike, who claims to hate carrots but actually ends up liking almost […]

Banh My – what a sandwich!

After spending two months in Thailand, I got used to the food, picked up a little of the language, and even learned to recognize some words written in Thai.  Coming to Hanoi has been more challenging than I expected, and I think I’ve experienced a little culture shock.  The language […]
