Ratatouille with Sun-Dried Peppers

Ratatouille with Sun-Dried Peppers

Since my family visited me just over a week ago, the time has flown by! I began my summer research in the vineyard again for my second field season, so I have been incredibly preoccupied. That means it’s been a lot of long days out […]

Shredded Chicken and Vegetable Soup

Shredded Chicken and Vegetable Soup

Last week was my first exam of the semester and as such I didn’t do a lot of cooking because I was studying so much. I just made simple things, like salads, and I also pieced together one of my older recipes, my One-Pan Spice […]

Paleo Tilapia Tacos

Paleo Tilapia Tacos

Since coming home, I have been doing so much cooking, which has made me so happy! It’s nice to take a little break and do those activities that make me really happy. One recipe I prepared this week was a variation from The Paleo Diet […]

When I am tired of working on my writing at home, I often go to Barnes and Noble for a change of scene. After working a while and having my coffee at the cafe there, I reward my efforts by taking a long stroll through […]

Golden Sunrise Muffins

Golden Sunrise Muffins

I made it through my first semester of my Ph.D. but even though classes are done I’m still eyeball-deep in work. I’m really loving my field work, however. I get to spend most days in the vineyard. If you’ve ever been to West Texas, you’ll […]

Chicken with Creamy Roasted Eggplant

Chicken with Creamy Roasted Eggplant

The semester has finally ended and I’m just waiting on my grades. I’ve already jumped into working on field work, and I’m so excited about where my new project is going. I’m also excited because I finally have time to really focus on some cooking. […]

Piccole Torta Pasqualina con Morels (Mini Easter Pies with Morels)

I recently received an email from the folks at Marx Foods to contribute to their Morel Recipe Challenge. I was happy to participate, especially since morels are nearly impossible to come by now that I live in Texas. Back home in Indiana, thanks, to the […]
