Finally Home

I’ve been gone for a week and, believe it or not, the first thing I want to do when I get home is not grocery shop. However, I am hankering for some fresh home cookin’. Risotto is the perfect meal for this type of occasion because you can use whatever frozen veggies and wine (even red!) you have on hand. In our case: risotto with peas and butternut squash, finished off with lemon zest and rosemary from the porch garden. Chardonnay to drink.

When life throws you lemons make pasta!

I have been back really riding since my crash for only a week and I get a cold! So if today I am stuck not doing one thing that I love I must do another – so for dinner we had pasta in a buttery garlic sauce with baby heirloom tomatoes, lemon, shrimp, and Parmesan.

Pork Chops in Irish Butter with Brie and Cherries

Sometimes when you come home from work you need to cook a delicious meal even if it means eating close to 9. Tonight we skipped the salad and bread and just had the meat.
