What to Cook This Week

Week of April 7, 2024

Hi friends! It's springtime (even if the weather is a bit colder than I'd like!), which means trees are in bloom and I'm craving fresh ingredients like spring peas and asparagus and salads.

I love this easy Pea & Pancetta Pasta - kid-friendly and simple enough to throw together on a weeknight. The Pea & Mint Pesto Crostini with Ricotta Crostini is the perfect appetizer for a springtime gathering, and I'm eating this Arugula & Farro Salad with Snap Peas and Watermelon Radishes on the regular right now. (Swap the farro for quinoa if you're GF.)

For a dinner party, this Shrimp with Saffron Rice & Fennel Salad would be perfect, followed by an Almond-Honey Cake for dessert, with fresh berries. Enjoy!

I’ve wanted to write a blog post for weeks now, but haven’t been able to properly string the words together. The pain and hurt are so deep in the world right now that it’s easy to feel paralyzed by it all. I feel guilty seeking joy, when so many are suffering. Daily, I read about the bombings and...

New Year Musings and a Word for 2022

Happy New Year, friends!! I don’t know if it’s the fact that my kids just went back to school after an insanely long 3.5-week winter break, or the fact that we are entering our third year of pandemic life, but so far this January, I just feel tired. (Unlike my kids, which - as evidenced by this photo - are fully of nonstop energy!). We had a really sweet time celebrating Christmas and Evie’s birthday with my family (who traveled from Virginia and California to be together at my parents’ house...
