Pineapple Fried Rice

Living in New York City, you become accustomed to ordering delivery for dinner.  Some would say overly accustomed. I’m too tired/busy/sick/late/sad/angry/excited/lazy to cook tonight.  Plus, it’s rainy.  And my middle toe hurts.  What do you want, babe?  Pizza, sushi, Mexican, Chinese, Indian, Thai, Vietnamese, burgers, deli sandwiches, Korean, Mediterranean? I think I actually want barbecue.  [...]

Green Tomato Stacks with Goat Cheese, Peaches and Balsamic Reduction (Two Ways)

I always thought I’d be famous.  People even told me my name sounded famous: Annie Sims Messenger. Obviously, I agreed. Although the talent that would lead me to fame remained undiscovered, my faith in my own future celebrity never wavered.  I knew something would pop up in time for me to be strutting red carpets [...]

Sesame Kale and Mexican Bean Salad Tostadas

You know when it’s May and you’re just ho-humming along, trying to get to summer time because you are all excited about summer weekend trips and day trips and ice cream trucks?  Like, you’re just dealing with the rain and the Sesame Street/Diego/Super Why! trifecta and the dumping of arts and crafts rather than the [...]

Mexican Feast…Estilo Rapido!

My husband is a lucky guy.  I mean, there is the obvious, of course:  The JACKPOT of a wifey he found himself and those angelic angel-y angels of children she cooked up for him and all that jazz.  But he is also rich in the friend department. He has this core group of best friends [...]

Seared Salmon Over Mint-Pea Puree

Before we moved to the giant jungle of New York City, surrounded by tons of friends who *possibly* see babies in their distant 10-year plan, and ohhhhh, zero grandparents, we lived in a quaint (read: tiny) house in Maryland.  There, Carlitos had three sets of grandparents, two aunts, numerous step-aunts, cousins and a backyard. It [...]

Sauteed Rainbow Swiss Chard with Warm Feta and Pita

What should you do when your husband has a new position at work and is now staying late pretty frequently so as not to be the New Guy that Leaves on Time Because He Has Two Kids and Lives in Brooklyn but rather try to come across as a fellow Young Guy Living Two Stops [...]

Meat on a Stick with a side of Weeds

Growing up I always ordered the ‘Poo Poo Platter for 2′ whenever we went out for Chinese food.  I would try to order the one ‘for 4′ but got shot down every time. Fine. But you can’t stop me from ordering dessert to fill up the empty space left in my stomach from only eating [...]

It’s All Greek (Quinoa) to Me

My husband hates participating in sports that involve too much set up, gear, general preparation: Windsurfing, snowboarding, sailing. I would love to say this means he is a little crazy.  Because, well, I enjoy calling him a little crazy. But to be honest, I totally get it.  Who wants to spend all of that time [...]

BBQ-ish Chicken

My Wednesdays have changed since I first started this segment.  They used to be spent entirely with the boys, although the afternoon did entail rushing Carlitos to pre-school and then rushing home in time to make some dinner. These days, my early morning is still spent rushing around with the boys at home.  Trying to [...]

Orange You Glad I Made Chicken?

I know I have made many vegetarian dishes so far for ‘What’s for Supper Wednesdays.’  I am not even sure why, really.  We do still eat meat.  Although now that I try to buy organic/hormone-free meat, I do buy it less often each week…which is probably also good for us in the long run, actually.
