FOODIE FRIDAY: ELEVATED CAULIFLOWER PURÉE

FOODIE FRIDAY: ELEVATED CAULIFLOWER PURÉE This is not a new and exciting food-find that is going to absolutely blow you mind. (if so, I may want to ask you what rock you have been living under) I started making cauliflower puree as a substitute for mashed potatoes in...

FOODIE FRIDAY: SLOW COOKER PULLED CHICKEN

FOODIE FRIDAY: SLOW COOKER PULLED CHICKEN We are sitting at a dock on the Hudson, at the bottom end of Manhattan, and rolling our guts out with all the ferry traffic constantly going past.  The waves come in, smash against the far wall of the boat basin and then it...

FOODIE FRIDAY: MISO GLAZED FISH

FOODIE FRIDAY: ODE TO THE COCONUT

FOODIE FRIDAY: ODE TO THE COCONUT I can’t believe this: 8 weeks of little blog articles, August is here! It is the height of summer on Long Island Sound.  All the farm stands are bursting with produce.  If I make it to a Farmer’s Market, rather than provisioning at a...

THE SKYLIGHT

THE SKYLIGHT I was laying on the floor the other day exhausted after a brutal WOD, it involved the lovely Assault Bike and just looked up at the skylight in the gym while I recovered. It is interesting to me the reflecting that I can do all because I am searching for...

….IT’S JUST DIFFERENT

….IT’S JUST DIFFERENT Finding out we were pregnant with our second when we did honestly was a little bit of a surprise, a wonderful one but still a surprise. We weren’t trying, but we weren’t not trying either so it was bound to happen. To be completely honest a tiny...
