Banh Mi – Yes Please!

It had been a little while since I had cooked up anything new, so when I came across this recipe for Banh Mi I figured it was worth a shot – especially since the “main ingredient” is a 2lb slow cooked pork shoulder roast! I made a small change by having Jeney whip up a […]

Southwestern Chopped Salad with Cilantro Dressing

(adapted from I’m fairly certain I just searched for “cilantro corn black bean salad” and found “Southwestern Chopped Salad with Cilantro Dressing” by the GardenGrazer.  She’s incredibly clever, and it is fun to read her comments on making the salad. All credit goes to her! Unfortunately, the salad typically disappears so quickly that I […]

Summertime means ice cream!

This summer has been weird in Ithaca, just ask any local. The weather has been temperamental: rainy and cold! But there’s one thing that is true regardless of how the thermometer reads: I don’t say ‘no’ to ice cream. Adam and I have a very hard time saying ‘no’ when one of us gets an […]

Paleo Fish Tacos

I have never been big on making my own tortillas. However, I love tacos, burritos, quesadillas, and have been trying to stick to a mostly Paleo diet while cranking up the training for upcoming races. I was looking around for something different and found a recipe for plantain tortillas. My first thought was, “hmmm…I wonder […]

Great Breakfast In Ithaca – Coal Yard Cafe

Last weekend, while Jeney was still recovering from pneumonia(!), the rest of our regular running group ventured out into the 10-ish degree weather in Ithaca and ended up having a good run. I ended up copying a friends route that added a few miles and was happy to finish up with just over 12 miles. […]

Chicken Fettucini Alfredo

I beat Jeney home by about half an hour yesterday and wanted to get something going for dinner. I had picked up a good Malbec on the way home, but figured we would have something at home so a trip to the grocery store wasn’t really necessary. And then I got home. And stared at […]

Baked Shrimp With Tomatillos Recipe

This past weekend I had the opportunity to cook a dish that I hadn’t made for the better part of a year. Last fall, I tried making it for the first time and really liked it. It combines seafood, fresh veggies, and cheese – what’s not to love about it?!? I had also never used […]

Agava Restaurant – Ithaca, NY

We stopped by Agava on a Wedensday night and had a great surprise – a new restaurant in Ithaca with good service and great food! We went in around 7pm and while it was busy it wasn’t too crowded, always a nice thing. We put our names in and were told it would be about 10 minutes […]
