Today my belly rub lover, alien noise maker, foodaholic, cartoon character doppelganger, Stitch, turns one. We’ve had him for exactly one month now and so much about our lives has changed including, but not limited to: We eat fewer late night snacks in order to avoid his face stationed next to ours pleading for a … More Happy Birthday, Stitch!
Jersey Girl Cafe has a special spot in my heart. It is one of the first places I visited when I began to really indulge in my love for food. Though they offer breakfast*, lunch, and dinner, Jersey Girl is most often our go to when we want a good breakfast.** *All day long! **But … More Jersey Girl Cafe, Hamilton
Going to Hawaii was not so much a bucket list item for me, but an it’s-going-to-happen-it’s-just-a-matter-of-when reality. It was the natural choice for our ten-year anniversary celebration. Most people respond to hearing Hubby and I have been married ten years with shock. The statement we often hear is, “You must have gotten married when you were … More Our Hawaii Travels: Part One
For a little over a year now, we’ve talked about getting a dog. Lance grew up with dogs and cats, and though he loves both, the kid in him loves the play factor dogs naturally possess.

While en route to Asbury Park* for our second beach excursion this summer*, Hubby decided he wanted to search for a comic book. Comic book stores tend to be few and far between, so our first detour led us to Red Bank and Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash***. *Note to self, Asbury Park on a … More Coffee Coral, Red Bank
Red potatoes are how I first knew I loved food in more than an I-love-you-because-you-keep-me-alive kind of way. Growing up, potatoes in general were my go to answer to “If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?” In fact, I think I told this to one … More The Red Potato
In June, I received a text from Hubby about a new show on Broadway. Now friends, this is a little unusual, because, let’s be real, 90% of the shows Hubby has seen on Broadway have been for me. One of his few favorites was an off Broadway production of Pygmalion*. *And, you guessed it, not … More 1984 on Broadway
Know what I am the worst at? Pinterest. I’ve got boards. That’s what they’re called, right? The irony of it all is that I pin things like “How to keep your kitchen organized” while my entire Pinterest account in one massive mess of disorganization. I have three different food boards. Is that normal? Or do … More Make it Monday! Hash Brown Potatoes
