Last night, I wanted a quick dinner that wouldn’t be over the top filling and pretty easy to execute because I was heading out to the Jesus and Mary Chain show later. Enter this shrimp and pineapple fried rice. I did a few mods–I sauteed the onion and garlic, then added raw shrimp and cookedContinue reading “fried rice.”
Last night, I noticed the doc wearing the very first pair of socks I ever knit for him–back in 2012. It was a small moment that reminded me my hand knits are appreciated. They are also a nice window into my knitting proclivities of the time–what fibers did I like? What colors? During this time,Continue reading “old.”
I have bags upon bags upon bags of Hatch, New Mexico green chiles in my freezer. And so, this weekend, I decided to dig into my stash and cook up a delicious green chile chicken soup with homemade tortillas to dip. I created this dish with what I had on hand but it turned outContinue reading “green chile soup.”
This is the first wool purchase I have made in a year. The reason I decided to stop buying yarn was because my stash was really large and I had this really lofty goal of saving money and purchasing a home in 2015. And guess what? I didn’t purchase yarn, and I bought my firstContinue reading “tweed horses.”
Comfort foods are in, kids. Like roasted butternut squash–simple, with olive oil, pepper, and salt.
I really do love the final result of these socks made for Sean in the ever-loving but always sought after Knit Picks Felici self striping sock, which only comes around every so often. These simple after-thought heel socks are Sean’s favorite because I’ve really got the formula down for what fits his feet, and nowContinue reading “pink.”
The other night, I made some pretty bang up fish tacos. I grilled off some fresh wild caught local sole, which I marinated in olive oil, lime juice, cayenne pepper, and some cumin. The tacos were topped with pickled red onions in lime juice, bibb lettuce, cucumber, and a homemade lime crema. The crema wasContinue reading “fish tacos.”
It’s finally pomegranate season. These ones went into a delicious guac I made with fresh cilantro, red onion, lime juice, and of course, pomegranate seeds and avocado. How do you eat your seeds?
Finally, home feels settled. And after years of living in the city without proper outdoor space, I have not one–but two–giant porches. One facing east toward downtown in the back, and one facing west and the world’s best sunsets. The back porch is a great place to enjoy an after work cocktail, or a bookContinue reading “porch life.”
It’s that time of season–when I whip out the ginger, and cloves, and cinnamon, and make dream cookies with them. I’m feeling fall finally…are you? Ginger snaps — yes, please. Have I mentioned how amazing it is to cook in my new kitchen? And how much sunlight there is! I’m living in a sun drenchedContinue reading “spice.”
This was, by far, one of the best dips I’ve made in awhile. Cream cheese, sharp cheddar, jumbo lump crab meat, hot sauce, scallions, and roasted red peppers. All topped off with delicious ripped pieces of crusty bread and baked in the oven until bubbly. Serve with mini toasts, pita chips, or any kind ofContinue reading “lump crab dip.”
Sean gifted me these amazing bronze piggy book ends last year for Christmas. We finally hung the mid century modern wood shelf my mum found us while she was antiquing. Perfect spot to show off these oinks? I think so.
