Brown Butter Roasted Potatoes

These days, a successful evening involves baby’s bedtime at 6:30 or 7:00, leaving me a few precious moments in which to water the garden, do some minimal cleaning, and cook an incredibly simple meal. My solution? Roasted vegetables. Every night. Cut them up, stick them in the oven, go about my business. Trust me – the most time-consuming thing about roasting vegetables is picking them out at the grocery store.

White Pizza with Green Onions and Bacon

Friends, it's been a long time, but I do have legitimate excuses.

Old-Fashioned Gingerbread Men

I avoided this thing for so long. I cooked, I baked, I picked up my camera and even took photos. I never wrote about what I did. Various obstacles got in my way and the exhaustion of work took over.

And yet the events in Connecticut last week brought me to a standstill.
