Arugula

Before I get to this pasta, I have some news to share… Matt got into medical school! He’ll be starting at Cornell in the fall, which means we’re moving back to NYC in August. As much as I’ll miss Boston, I didn’t feel done with New York just yet. This news was so exciting on [read more →]

Up until last weekend, the only time I had ever tried olive oil poached salmon was several years ago (2008?) at a restaurant in Philadelphia.
