Vacation Recap

Last month, Brian and I went on an Eastern Caribbean cruise to St. Maarten and St. Thomas. I really enjoyed Saint Martin/Sint Maarten! There was so much to see and unlike a lot of the Western Caribbean ports, you are actually allowed to explore the island! I had heard about this neat area called “Grand [...]

Shrimp for One, Two Ways

A friend was visiting me today and she reminded me that I have been sorely neglecting this blog. I have been working full time for 6 weeks now and I absolutely love it.  I was anxious about the transition but after all the travel and weddings and time off, I surprised myself by being totally [...]

A Kitty, a Pixie, and a Grill

So much is going on these days!  I finally finished school and my master’s degree was officially conferred yesterday.   In family news, Mr. B and I welcomed a new addition about two and a half months ago.  If you’re on Facebook or Instagram, you’ve probably already seen plenty of her, but this is Isabel.

Boston Organics: April 20

A few weeks ago, I started our Boston Organics deliveries back up. We only get the smallest box every other week, but I love cooking with my organic food, especially now that I’m on break for a few weeks.

Happy Belated Birthday Mr. B

A few weeks ago, it was Mr. B’s birthday, and it was quite chocolate filled!  I took him out to Max Brenner for dinner fondue.  Plus there were those decadent leftover truffles I made him for Valentine’s Day.  And then, that weekend, there was his cake. I decided on a Chocolate Kahlua Cake that combined [...]

Thryve

As you probably know, I have been struggling with being a healthy, active person for a few years now. Last semester and I let my health concerns slip aside, but I’m trying to turn that around. I decided to look to technology for some inspiration. After all, the Weight Watchers app worked for me for [...]
