Enchiladas for One

Phew, things are getting busy over at my house this month. Our roommates are out of the country, exploring England and France while Cobalt and I add hours to our jobs and fiddle with our broken dishwasher. Making legitimate meals hasn’t been happening regularly. I think I’ve only made one the whole week? Tonight we […]

How To: Homemade Pasta

It’s so interesting to live in Los Angeles this time of year.  Back in Tennessee–where Cobalt and I moved from last October–it’s beginning to warm up from the winter season.  But here the weather is the same it’s always been: sunny, warm in the day and cool at night. I can’t say I miss the […]

Chicken Enchiladas for Four

Broccoli and Kale Cheddar Soup

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a fun and safe holiday season.  Cobalt and I didn’t visit our families on the East Coast this year but instead enjoyed quality time together at our new home in Los Angeles.  We watched a lot of movies, enjoyed walks around our neighborhood, decorated Ginger Bread Houses (Cobalt […]
