Nemo, and Brunch at Olde Magoun’s Saloon

Nemo

Matt and I started getting a little stir-crazy when it became apparent on Friday night that going out wasn’t really an option. Now, I normally love staying in and cooking – especially on cold nights – but something about the thought of not being able to go anywhere made us both absolutely want to go out. Funny how that works. So, after being snowed in on Friday night, we wandered out to see what was open for brunch on Saturday.

I don’t know about you, but my winter blues are in full effect. And that upcoming blizzard here in Boston? Ugh. (Also, since when did they start naming blizzards? Is it going to be that bad that it needs a name?) Anyways, I may not be able to change the weather, but I can certainly [read more →]

Chickpea Bruschetta

When Matt and I first started dating, I was honestly a little skeptical about dating a vegetarian. This chickpea bruschetta was one of the first things he ever made for me. On that particular date night, he made the brushcetta along side some really good polenta with tomato sauce. He definitely proved to this carnivore [read more →]

Beet Down

After we ate the beet ravioli the other weekend (with some wine), Matt and I were marveling at how delicious beets are and how we don’t cook with them enough. Then Matt said, “Next weekend. Beet Down.” And so the idea of a multi-course meal based entirely on beets was born. We even found some [read more →]

Spicy Cajun Shrimp

For Matt (and probably everyone else in Boston), the Super Bowl may as well not be happening this year. I’m not even a big football fan, but I was definitely shouting at the tv the other weekend… Still, I love making football food. I’m sure we’ll still watch the game, but we’ll need some good [read more →]

This brussels sprout panini kind of came together on a whim. I had bought a bag of those shredded brussels sprouts from Trader Joe’s without a real plan for them. When trying to figure out what to make for lunch, I realized I had a ton of leftover fresh mozzarella from pizza making over the [read more →]

I used to get really frustrated trying to make homemade pasta. The dough would never be the right texture, and trying to roll out dough that’s either too dry or too wet and sticky can be infuriating. Thankfully, it seems that all of my practice lately has finally paid off. I’m not an expert by [read more →]

Spicy Roasted Red Pepper and Tomato Soup

Matt and I are starting to realize why we got such a good deal on our Davis Square apartment. Being on the third floor of an old townhouse means that it’s unbearably hot in the summer, yet our apartment has basically no insulation to keep the heat in during the winter. I’m pretty sure when [read more →]
