simplifying dinner
Sometimes we like to cook. Most of the time, perhaps. We'll research new recipes and collect our ingredients and make an evening out of it. I love those nights, the two of us puttering about in the kitchen with Fresh Air on the radio. I love the menus we cr...

all toile everything, or a bathroom update
Our home is a 1930s brick English tudor with a bright red door and oodles of charm, if I may be so bold as to say so. Among the steeply-pitched roof, archway and original hardwood floors and trim, there is the toile. Toile de jouy . There was toile in the u...

why running is great
This serves as much as a reminder for myself as for anyone else out there, but I've been thinking about why running is so cool. I'm not even running much these days, having temporarily swapped out most of my runs for a different workout routine recently. Bu...

chocolate pear jam
I've had this recipe bookmarked for awhile, and a few weekends ago I took the plunge. I armed myself with an armful of Bosch pears, the new Decemberists album and the quiet of a snowy morning. That's just what you do when you find a recipe for chocolate pea...
