Fire-Roasted Tomato and Red lentil Soup

This is a go-to soup for me when it starts getting cold. I make it a lot on the boat. One of the things I love about it is that most of the ingredients should already be in your pantry. It is so simple but also seems exotic and hearty at the same time. Absolutely

Why Dream?

My husband Steven, Douglas, and Mike moving stuff to Cambridge I have had an incredibly stressful few weeks. We moved out of the South End on Saturday which was of course bittersweet.

Ellen Degenres and my mother-in-law

You never know where you will get inspiration. My mother in law, Marty, and I have always been close. We've had many an argument too given that we are both so similar but that is another story. This past Thanksgiving, my husband kids and I went up to Vinylhaven, Maine, a tiny island off the

Who is Lululemon???

Pumpkin Love Cookies

Vegan Pumpkin Love Cookies My husband, Steven, loved these cookies and he is a really tough cookie critic. He also does not particularly like or care whether they are healthy.
