Baked Eggs with Asparagus & Goat Cheese

Baked Eggs with Asparagus and Goat Cheese

What a day. I am emotionally exhausted after the US World Cup game. I’m sure it’s my emotions and not the beer that totally drained me. I think. It’s 9:45 and I am fighting to stay awake and finish up this blog post. Once upon a time I went to bed between 1 and 2 […]

Risotto with Champagne and Spring Veggies

  I’ve been sitting on this recipe for a while. Not really sure why. Apparently I took the photo immediately after making it, because it’s still a little steamy. Haha. One of my favorite things about making risotto is that it’s so easy to use up all of your leftover wine – seems like we […]
