Watermelon Bellinis

I love summer. I love heat and long days, beach trips and peaches. I am happier in the summer. Just plain being in the sun all day makes me gleeful. I am clearly meant for warmer climes, where people can flop down in the grass for a nap any time...

Ratatouille Pizza

I have been putting off this post for a while simply because I wasn’t sure HOW to start a post after months of radio silence. I thought about updating everyone on what I’ve been up to, but if you’re reading this, you probably already know. But in case you don’t,...

Roma Eggs

 I’m taking a break from my meat-free week to post a recipe that Kylin and I made a couple months ago- enjoy! I love eggs. Fried, scrambled, poached, omletted (?)- for breakfast, lunch or dinner. They are such a simple, versatile kitchen staple that I feel like I always have some...

Chicken Tortilla Soup on the Go

Working lunch My office doesn’t have a kitchen. Instead, we have a microwave/mini fridge combo right in my office, which can cause problems ( I could drink diet coke all day without ever having to get up, thanks to the magic of chairs on wheels). What it also means is...
Lighter Mashed Potatoes

Lighter Mashed Potatoes

I wanted something tasty to go with my low-fat meatloaf, but didn’t want to totally ruin the work I’d done towards making something “low fat”- so I tried out these mashed potatoes. I was initially skeptical at how little butter they contained- typically, I don’t favor mashed potato recipes, I normally just mash...

Touring (And Sampling) My Way Through the Taza Chocolate Factory

Marshall is Hungry fell dormant after I moved to Boston but I’ve been blogging elsewhere- you can read my posts here, here, and here!   When I was a kid, my favorite part of Mr. Rogers were the segments when we got to visit a factory and see how things were made, so when I heard...

Low-Fat Meatloaf

Low-Fat Meatloaf

  I have been going back and forth on how to label this recipe- I almost didn’t want to call it “low-fat.” I mean, that is the name of the original recipe and I suppose it is technically low-fat. But to me, low-fat implies a sad, limp egg whites with turkey bacon kind of situation....
Salad Tips for the Meat and Potatoes Girl

Salad Tips for the Meat and Potatoes Girl

  I am not a “salad eater.” Usually, sitting down to a nicely dressed bed of greens just leads me to growl, “I’m not a rabbit!” I’d rather be chowing down on a sandwich, or bowl of pasta. However, in an attempt to “grow up,” I’m going to try to change my relationship with salads-...
Happy Spring!

Happy Spring!

I’ve had a very wonderful, fun-filled past few weeks- and its getting better- after work (in a mere 20 minutes!) I’m heading up to the Poconos to have a mini-reunion with some college friends. With all this activity and traveling, I’ve haven’t even done a full load of laundry in weeks. Belong are some of...

It’s been a long winter, guys. People keep saying, “No, Marshall, it hasn’t. It didn’t even really snow.” Fair point. But. That doesn’t mean that the not-snowing, not-super-cold winter doesn’t drag on. I’m getting sick of the darkness, for one, and getting sick of wearing hose to work every day, and I’m sick of the...
Beef Tacos

Beef Tacos

My friend Maureen once locked herself into her own apartment because she was so excited to get home and make tacos. She didn’t realize what she’d done until she was rushing out the door to work the next morning and realized she couldn’t open the door- unable to get in touch with her super, she...

Hey everyone! Last week was a fever blur of illness, compiled with a huge event for work that I had to plan. Now I feel like I’m slowly tending to the rest of my life – like actually cooking, sleeping, cleaning my room, and blogging! I just need to get around to finally doing my...
