health(ier) spaghetti carbonara

health(ier) spaghetti carbonara

Okay, so the only time I’ve ever had pasta carbonara is at my desk in the form of a lean cuisine. I think it’s because I always quickly wipe the drool off any menu that describes a dish as “creamy” and use all the will in my power pocket to get something that I supposedly … Continue reading

Roasted Beet and Potato Salad

Lately I seem to have some time on my hands. My new job, while it pays well, is boring to the point of tears. Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on who you are) I spend a good amount of time trying to figure out what to make for dinner, and that time has been well spent … Continue reading
