Miso Ginger Salmon with Medley of Roasted Winter Vegetables

The holiday season is a horrible time to go on a healthy eating kick. Temptation lurks around every corner and there are an amazing number of opportunities to celebrate the season by sharing comfort food with friends. And yet, between giving myself a ramp up in my running again and mixing strength training back into…

I’m a little bit slow at coming to this realization, but something about looking at the calendar yesterday made me stop and realize that summer is halfway over. We’re a week into August and fall officially starts September 22nd. What makes that surprising is our weather. It has been a beautiful breezy and cool summer here in…

You guys may remember we decided recently to take on our first winery membership with Paradise Springs. The beautiful winery is only 20 minutes from our house and lies right next to miles of amazing hiking trails, so we know we’re going to be out there quite a bit. And it doesn’t hurt that the…

Meals are the world’s most underrated storytellers. For those of us who are fortunate and privileged enough to not only eat, but several times a day, food has the ability to stir our senses, to transport us. It seems like a waste to simply shovel in food and not hear the story it has to tell,…

Adversity doesn’t make relationships – it defines them. And it’s helped us define…

It’s amazing how many different flavors the Hawaiian islands have. While I’m beyond glad that Hawaiian cuisine itself is being recognized among culinary circles, it’s also important to understand that even within the term “Hawaiian cuisine,” there are lots of subtle nuances. Maui and its ranches favor traditional beef and pork dishes, Oahu brings an abundance…

There is nothing in the world like a summer day spent in the water. You all already know I’m addicted to the life aquatic, and I’ve been spending a lot of time out in the Tidewater area this summer – between studying and writing papers and whatnot – and that’s only making things worse. Every day, as…

To this day, my dad is still my favorite chef {sorry, Chef Ramsay}. I love watching him work in the kitchen. Because while he researches his recipes like crazy before it’s time to make them, when he’s actually in the kitchen, he just goes with the flow. A dash of this here, a handful of…

After years of moving around – twelve moves in the last fourteen years – it’s been interesting to see how my concept of being at home somewhere has changed, and what things make a place feel like home. It really has nothing to do with our stuff. Getting stuff put away is easy. I’m pretty quick at…
