spicy lentil soup

Spicy Sausage and Lentil Soup

Now that most of my friends are lawyers, rather than law students (and no longer needing to plow through case law), we seem to fill our evenings with girls’ nights at BYOB sushi joints and potlucks with copious amounts of wine. This is all well and good but suddenly almost two weeks have passed and I haven’t stopped by here to tell you about what I have been eating and cooking in my own kitchen.

And we did everything to enjoy it to the fullest. Continue reading

2009 was a crazy year.  I graduated law school, studied for the Bar and then thankfully passed the Bar.  I traveled to Disney, Texas (twice), NYC, and West Chester.  I ran a 10 mile race and enjoyed the farmer’s market season.  I met many new wonderfully inspiring people both in person and through our blogs.  But really, I mainly just cooked and ate, a lot.
