Easy Lemon Sugar Cookies

Easy Lemon Sugar Cookies

A new blog post, and only 11 days after Sophie joined the family. This is proof that I’m running on the fumes of a crazy sleepless person.

Potato and Corn Chowder with Pancetta

Potato and Corn Chowder with Pancetta

It’s winter, and this one has been a REAL winter. Tons of snow, a bunch of ridiculously cold days, and that feeling of wanting to do nothing more than wrap up in a blanket in front of the fire. As a side note, man do I ever wish we had a wood burning fireplace, gas just isn’t the same. Another ...

Anniversary Chicken (or Pan Seared Chicken Breasts with a Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Cream Sauce)

Anniversary Chicken (or Pan Seared Chicken Breasts with a Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Cream Sauce)

It’s ironic really that I call this Anniversary chicken, seeing as I was supposed to make it for our anniversary and instead we ordered pizza at nine at night once the kids were in bed. Happy five years hunny! Three weeks later though, I finally got around to making it. On a Monday night. When I had the kids at ...
