I am a 34 year old living outside of Boston with my wonderful husband, energetic daughter, sweet son, and playful dog. I have degrees in both psychology and guidance counseling, and have worked in a variety of school settings. I strive to find a balance between the two basic food philosophies of “eat to live” and “live to eat“. I believe that food should be (and is!) one of the great pleasures of leading a healthy lifestyle.

1. The author of a blog I read every now and then recently posted about the cathartic effect of a sad movie. This got me thinking about my favorite tear-jerker movies… you know, the ones you sit down to watch with a box of tissues at the ready. I realized that many of my all-time favorite films are actually quite sad at the end: BraveheartLegends of the FallBrokeback MountainThe Departed… (the list goes on); not quite sure what that says about me? I guess I just enjoy a good cry every now and then.

2. The company I develop recipes for – Key Ingredient – has just released an explanatory video detailing in a concise manner what they’re all about. Check it out here!

3. Although I am aware that it is still mid-summer, I am already longing for fall. We are in Lincoln City, OR* (right on the coast – about 2 hours west of Portland) for John’s cousin’s wedding weekend and the cool temperatures have me yearning for crisp days and warm sweaters.

4. Despite #3, I’m still enjoying summer’s bounty to the fullest, and my Basil Walnut Pesto is a fantastic summery addition to any meal (or snack).

*I’m falling in love with the coast of Oregon! Not only is the coastline gorgeous, but the fresh seafood is just as good as back home in Boston.

Some of the guys went fishing a few days ago and caught a ton of fresh crabs. These legs and claws were so good! Sweet & succulent crab meat ranks even higher than lobster in my book ;). Mmmmm.
