Green Bean Soup (for the Slow Cooker)

Thursday, June 10, 2010

Finally! We moved, but it’s not all smooth sailing yet. We’re living out of boxes and we don’t have a kitchen yet.

Broccolini

Tuesday, June 8, 2010

So, I’m back from Maine and we’re back to our normal programming, though wherever we are, it’s still all about food…

Sofra Bakery

Wednesday, June 2, 2010

Sofra Bakery One Belmont Street, Cambridge, MA 02138 was recommended to me by a new twitter friend, Citizen Taco. Thank You! Thank You! I am in love with this Middle Eastern-ish bakery. While enough is familiar in the display of perfect looking cakes, pastries, and buns, there are Middle Eastern twists […]

Two Year Wedding Anniversary and more Milestones

Tuesday, June 1, 2010

Remember when we got married? Can you believe it’s been two years? This picture was recently taken by our friend Eddie (make-up done by Caroline Louw). Do we still look like happy newlyweds or what?

We want to thank you for being with us the whole time, and so many of you have become friends that […]
