Friday Favorite: A Few Good Knives

Of all the gadgets and kitchen tools I have accumulated over the years, nothing gets more of a workout than my knives. I have owned some crappy ones and I've owned some good ones. But now, I think I have finally found my knife soulmates.

Dairy-Free Banana Ice Cream

I am a firm believer that some days you just need to have ice cream for lunch. After all, summer and ice cream are a perfect match. I have fond memories of going to the small local ice cream shop on a hot summer evening with my parents. As a grown-up, ice cream still makes me smile.

Danbury Farmer's Market Moves To Saturdays

Getting to the Danbury Farmer's Market on Fridays was tough for a lot of people. Unless you worked in the vicinity or had the day off, chances are you just couldn't get there.  Well, starting this summer, you are in luck! The Danbury Farmer’s Market is moving to Saturdays.

Baked Cod with Artichokes

Maybe it is just me, but I find it so much easier to eat light and healthy as the days start getting longer and warmer. I also seem to be more inclined to make fish. And, when I'm in the mood to cook fish, cod is typically my go-to choice. It’s available year-round, isn’t incredibly expensive, can be cooked all different ways, and pairs well with bold flavors like fresh herbs and citrus.

Lemon Herb Roasted Asparagus + Potatoes

Asparagus is only in season for a few short weeks, so I try to take full advantage of this classic spring vegetable. It’s not only delicious it’s also good for you too. It’s a good source of folate, fiber, heart-healthy potassium, and antioxidants. Plus, it’s low in calories.

Friday Favorite: Yumming With Yummly

I've decided to start a new recurring column on the blog, called Friday Favorite. I thought it would be fun one Friday a month to write about a food-related something that I am really liking at the moment. It might be a kitchen gadget, an app, a TV series, or maybe even an ingredient. Who knows what will strike my fancy? For this first Friday Favorite, it just so happens to be a website.
