Moroccan chicken stew recipe for the days you don't want to turn on the oven

I know we’re just entering September, but it’s felt like comfort-food weather for a while and that led me to this Moroccan chicken stew. The summer has flown right by, and I think it feels like that more-so because the weather just hasn’t been all that…

I’ve been a little quieter than normal, and part of that is because I’ve recently lost a pet. It was one of the most difficult decisions I’ve ever had to make, and one of the most impossible decisions too. Full disclosure, there won’t be a project or a…

My future grand-father-in-law is diabetic, and sometimes it can be challenging to think of tasty yet appropriate dishes (or side dishes) to make for our meals. This will definitely appeal to everyone!

I got engaged in Central Park in NYC! Here's the story :)

Let’s take a bit of a break from the food, and focus on some other important things in life like a baseball roadtrip. Kevin and I celebrated our 9 year anniversary at the end of June, and we wanted to do a fun trip for the both of us. As a pitcher, Kevin…
Making our way through 4 stadiums in 7 days, this Baseball Roadtrip was budget-friendly and fun too!
