Baked Feta with Shallots and Tomatoes

Baked Feta with Scallions 003

I’m always the first one to offer to bring something to a party. In my head, I go through all the recipes I’ve been meaning to try and decide that someone else’s party would be the prime time to try those out. Of course I then forget about it, don’t really plan anything out and have a small panic attack on the day of whatever party I’m attending and end up buying something at Trader Joe’s {not that there’s anything wrong with that!} Continue reading

It’s football season and for me, I’m pretty excited because I’m a huge Patriots fan {who now lives in NYC…interesting} and I just enjoy football in general.

Hello world! (again)

So I have arguably the best wife in the world. She’s also arguably the best mom in the world, too. This is actually her blog— I set it up and gave it to her as part of an elaborate engagement process before we even got married, believe it or not.

Anyway, it had been happily operating all these years, and then tragedy struck. Well, not really tragedy, but the website got thoroughly infected with malware. This made her very sad. I always nag her about updating her software all the time, but of course I never helped (or offered to help) keep her website software updated as well.  She’s more the foodie and I’m more the techie in this relationship.

This brings us to tonight, a few days after her birthday. I haven’t really gotten her anything in particular since I’ve been working nights in the hospital for a couple of weeks now. We just came back from a nice dinner, and of course I’m still in “vampire sleep” mode.  Given that, I decided to just stay up all night and fix the website once and for all.

The sad thing is that there was no way around completely deleting all the prior content and starting everything off from scratch again.  The upside is that she’s an amazing baker, cook, wife, and mom (did I mention that?), so I have no doubt she’ll fill it up with content again very soon :-)
