I gave this post the title of the recipe that inspired it, but really, I should have called it “four ways to screw up a single dish”: Misread ingredient #1, “3T olive oil, divided“, then dump the whole 3 tablespoons into the pot and wonder why you need so much oil. Decide you know better […]

The scale is being a bitch. I was still feeling pretty Zen about it (or, at least in spite of it) earlier in the week, but no more. Please bear with me while I drag you through the details. Or, if you like, skip to the bottom for this week’s salad. (I’m totally ok with […]
After the ups and downs of the past week, things seem to be settling down. I was feeling relieved until
