My weekend, in photos

Weekends are generally pretty excellent, but weekends during the summer… well, that is a particular sort of delight. When we are not visiting or traveling anywhere, my husband and I have a series of rituals that often hinge on spending time together. Here is a little chronicle of this past weekend: We typically get up … Continue reading

A reprisal.

It has been a crazy year. Deaths in the family, changes, hubs and I went to Spain, the summer whipped by, I celebrated y 30th birthday. It’s been a real BFD. ¬† Thanks to some serious prodding from my friend, Peter (hi Pete!), I am reprising the blog and getting my act together in this … Continue reading

Originally posted on Food Freedom:
By Robert McCollough Across the country rage is growing about GMOs and their being unleashed one after another on the country. ¬†While Europe, despite immense pressure from the Clinton administration, initially banned them, the FDA hid 40,000 documents indicating their extreme toxicity, to get them introduced in the US.

Sticking to goals when the going gets tough

I have had a rough week at work. Lots of competing demands for time and unexpected issues make for a worn out Lishy who doesn’t get to spend a lot of time in the kitchen. However, when there is a temptation to “take a break” from goals because it would be completely justified, that’s all … Continue reading

Guilty again.

My semester gets to a midway point and all of my projects (and my blog!) fall by the wayside. Teaching is a tough gig, folks. This has been an especially challenging semester and I’m ready for it to be done. Now that grades are submitted and I am ready for my holidays to begin! All … Continue reading

Working from home and its discontents

I like to work from home on occasion because I feel more productive. I can’t help it. I’m in the sort of position where I work with a lot of student issues, administrative issues and have a hand in a number of matters. In other words, I work an inch deep and a mile wide … Continue reading


My love of pie is no secret. As of late, my husband and I have been seeking out fun and interesting pie flavors. Fall is pie season, after all, so it stands to reason that we would be making lots of crusted delights. Today we are going to brunch at the home of some friends … Continue reading

A process story.

Suddenly October is here and it’s beginning to feel like fall in my neck of the woods. It is a chilly, glorious time of year full of apple cider, pumpkins and other orchard delights. I have also taken to spending my free moments here and there (when I need a creative release) to make these … Continue reading

…and we’re back!

After a week of pudding, sorbet and applesauce I think my post-surgery pain and lethargy has jumped the shark. I am getting back to normal. I’ve been sitting between 85%-90% for the past couple of days and I should be fully healed within the week. Relatively speaking, it was an uncomfortable experience, but I’m glad … Continue reading

Under the knife

Alright folks, I’m signing off for a little bit. As of this afternoon I’ll be out of commission for awhile. I am having my tonsils out–which is kind of a big deal once one reaches adulthood. So Lishy’s Kitchen is closed for business for a few days but I’ll be back with some great recipes … Continue reading
