Blueberry Corn Muffins

Blueberry Corn Muffins by Aaron Hutcherson

It’s Thursday. I’m sitting on a train heading out of the city to spend Independence Day weekend at a friend’s parents’ place near the beach. One of my coworkers has decided to give me deadlines to help encourage me to post more regularly. As I was exiting the office she asked, “You’re going to write a new post this weekend, right?” It…

Lemon Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting

Lemon Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting by Aaron Hutcherson

Lemon Cake with Cream Cheese FrostingSummer is here. There's no denying it. The AC unit has been placed in the window, and it's on and running. During the summer, most people try to avoid sweets in order to make themselves ready for days spent at the beach. In my opinion, there's nothing wrong with a little cake now and then—you can…

Spicy Sausage, Kale, and Lemon Pasta

Spicy Sausage, Kale, and Lemon Pasta by Aaron Hutcherson

Hi friends! Yes, it has been a while since I've last shared with you. To be honest, I'm not entirely sure where the past month has gone. Unfortunately, it seems that life can just get incredibly busy and hectic at times. I'm not sure if being too busy to update the blog is a good sign or not, but it is what it is and I can't change…

Jerk Chicken Wings

Jerk Chicken Wings by Aaron Hutcherson

It was Super Bowl Sunday and I had plans to go to a friend's apartment to watch the game. However, my friend is a vegetarian and no game day would be complete without chicken wings, so I decided to make myself a few before heading out. Instead of the standard buffalo flavor I opted for a little island flair. No, I'm no Jamaican food…

Braised Beef Stew

Braised Beef Stew by Aaron Hutcherson

Hi readers! I seem to have taken an unplanned vacation from blogging—sorry about that. It was during the time of winter where I just wanted to burrow into the warmth of my bed and hibernate for a few weeks. It seems that there might be some sunshine at the end of this cold stretch (though this weather can be rather unpredictable).…

Another Valentine's Day has come and gone. Though my circumstances changed from the previous year and I found myself spending it as a single person with friends, it was still quite enjoyable. However, the merriment I experienced came with a price—a…

Steak with Creamy Mushroom Gravy

Steak with Creamy Mushroom Gravy by Aaron Hutcherson

Here we are in the midst of a polar vortex and almost through the first month of the New Year. Though it is still quite a while away for many of us, I am anxiously awaiting warmer weather. Alas, we are left to bundle up as best we can to fend off the below-freezing temperatures and nourish our bodies to make it through to summer.…

Pasta with Bacon, Tomatoes, Shallots & Feta by Aaron Hutcherson

Pasta with Bacon, Tomatoes, Shallots & FetaBacon goes great with/in just about everything—eggs, Brussels sprouts, and even cookies. I read earlier today that someone recently opened an all-bacon restaurant. (It's definitely on my list of restaurants to try.) This meal has some of my other favorite things too. Pasta? Check. Cheese?…

Peanut Butter Apple Crumble

Peanut Butter Apple Crumble by Aaron Hutcherson

My first post of the new year! I can't believe it's 2014 already—where did all the time go? I'm not one to make any sort of resolutions. My opinion is that if you want to change something in your life, why not start right now? There's no point in waiting for a specific date to exact positive change. Why wait to do tomorrow what can be…
