Searching for Seasonal

One of the great advantages of living in a place so full of great produce is that you can get some amazing fruits and vegetables. The problem is that you need to be able to pick what will be best.

Now, figuring that out has never been one of my strengths. I mostly had to make that decision based on price and quality. Now, thanks to Stauffers, I found this amazing little chart. SeasonalMany of the grocery stores have been pushing hard to let everyone know that their providers are all local. In this case, they built a page describing what grows where and when things are best.

Enjoy the chart!

Checking out Chipotle

A few weeks ago Chipotle showed up in Lancaster. It took us a little while but today we finally made our way there. It was fairly crowded, not overly so, but because they hardly have any tables, the whole place was full. So we decided to opt for takeout. The smell of the grill going was great on the way in.

Big News!

So you may have noticed that we’ve been a little bit lacking in posts lately and some random mentions of some great news coming. Well, I’m so happy to announce that I have just started a new job! It’s local, so we’ll be here in Lancaster for the foreseeable future.

I’ll be working with an incredible group of people and I’m very much looking forward to helping everyone meet their goals. This also means that we will be able to start going out a little more often and doing just a little bit more! That’s good news for you because that also means more delicious food and more tasty experiments.

So for now I leave you to your own devices and expect more to come soon!

Leftovers from Thanksgiving

As Thanksgiving rolled past we are almost always left with a mountain of turkey. That almost always leads to having turkey non stop for days afterward. I prefer to have some variety and turkey at noon and at night just doesn’t do it for me. I like a nice light supper and poached eggs are so easy and delicious that it makes it a great choice.IMG_0881

Our Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving just passed us by and I’m sure there was a lot of tradition and innovation in all of your kitchens. Our kitchen was more of a collaboration than usual. The reason I say that is because when I was little it was basically my mom cooking. Then when I learned how to cook and learned that I enjoyed cooking, I took over. My mom would step in from time to time to answer a question or two but she very gladly handed it over to me. One of the dishes I did own, however, was the cranberry sauce.IMG_1123 Continue reading
