So, my right wrist is immobilized in a brace after a stupid hockey injury landed me with some torn cartilage. We’ve been eating out, eating frozen, and eating a lot of popcorn lately, as a result. It’s been maybe a week and a half to two weeks of that, and I’m about ready to kill

There’s nothing quite like coming home to the smell of a dinner that’s made itself while you were at work. It’s even better when you end up with a ton of leftovers (or enough to invite a friend over for dinner)! While the prep is admittedly a little more difficult when you’ve got one hand

The Fiancé and I have very different definitions of green chili, thanks to our mothers. My mom’s is green and served as a standalone dish. His mom’s is red and served burrito-style. Both are delicious. While I’m not sure at what point in marriage I gain the rite of passage that is learning my mother-in-law’s

This recipe is one of my childhood favorites. Here’s a big thanks  to my mom for sending me her recipe for it, since I currently am having a hard time cooking (and typing and doing most things that involve two hands) since my “sprained” wrist turned out to be fractured. I’ll do my best to

Green bean casseroles don’t just have to be for the holidays! They’re a great, flavorful way to change up the dinner vegetables, and they’re super easy! Combining the crunch of green beans with the salty, savoriness of fried onions, and bringing it all together with a creamy base, while these may not be the healthiest

We’ve covered Diwali, Hanukkah, and Christmas in our holiday food and story features. Now, it’s time to go way back to a celebration that may seem familiar in some ways, though it is often forgotten as a niche practice in the shadow of the flashier, more popular holidays. I’m talking about the Pagan celebration of the Winter Solstice

“Christmas” means something slightly different to everyone. For some, it’s a time of community traditions and religious celebration. For others, it’s a family time, where loved ones gather around their own traditions. For others still, like myself, we really don’t have much in the way of tradition, or we did at one point, but as
