Meatless Monday with Classic Pasta Night. Married Up.

His and Mine. Pasta is about the only meal my husband will eat without meat. In the beginning, when I was vegetarian, this was an easy meal for me to make for both of us. It would even be easy now--but I'm not so in to pasta lately. Don't get me wrong--it tastes great! And… Continue reading Meatless Monday with Classic Pasta Night. Married Up.

What’s for Breakfast:

One sure-fire way to love morning is to bake before bed. Last night I finally put the little pie pumpkin we bought Easton to good use (we never got around to carving it anyway). I love pumpkin recipes all fall (September-November!), and this was a hit this morning with coffee around here. Since it was… Continue reading What’s for Breakfast:
