about us


hi world!  joe and i are a young married couple with conveniently compatible interests.  we both love working out as well as cooking and eating good food.  have both raced in triathlons and several marathons.  we are also in the process of saving money to buy a house (hopefully right after we finish grad school) and so we are confronted with the challenge of pleasing our refined palates as well as our pockets.  most of the recipes on our blog are affordable, healthy adaptations from cookbooks and other blogs.

some of our favorite recipes are recreations of foods we enjoyed on our vacations abroad.  so far as a couple we have traveled to Argentina, England, France, Italy (above on top of St. Peter’s in Rome), and Peru.

I’m especially interested in Tofu turkey. Can you put together a recipe for me?

Your ciabatta beach story was inspiring and I’d really like to try your pizza–we drive for hours to eat at Pizzera Bianco’s. We’ll be in the area in December.

Mom and I made the amazing chicken dish in the cast iron pan tonight–it was delicious!
The salty capers and olives were just what we needed after shoveling 2′ of snow 🙂

I am so glad you guys have gotten so much enjoyment out of this recipe! You know, I have a 40 clove chicken recipe that’s pretty amazing, too. 😀
