Another Wednesday, another chance for blogland to share their eats from the week! 

And let me tell you, it has been a fun food week over here! So let's just get at it:

Breakfast the other morning was quite the delicious combo: eggs topped with melty cheese and Mama Pearl's hot sauce (review coming soon!). Yum, I couldn't believe how excited I was about eating eggs. Bacon and raspberries were just icing on the cake.

Another morning I was treated to freshly picked black raspberries. My brother and his girlfriend found a patch in the woods near our house and picked a whole ton. How's that for some local foraging?

 I'm not a baseball fan in the least but my best friend asked if I wanted to go to the Red Sox game with her. Of course I said yes because 1- Fenway Franks and 2- beer...Sam (Adams) Summer, to be exact - a Boston favorite.

Making some kale chips covered in chile powder, black pepper, and salt. Easy peasy.

This steak was damn good! I marinated the steak in tequila, citrus, & cilantro and topped it with a super garlicky 4 herb chimichurri sauce. Drool. The recipe will be up tomorrow, so stop back!

"The Funky Apple" from Ward Eight in Lowell. Gorgonzola, green apple, caramelized onions, and balsamic drizzle.

The family I nanny for is away on vacation this week so on my "last day," I bought the little boy a special cupcake to celebrate! A chocolatey and peanut buttery Baba Booey from Crumbs. Luckily, he shared some with me. ;)

And now, onto the drinks portion of my week:

A frozen kiwi margarita.

Grapefruit beer - very low in alcohol but totally refreshing!

And my favorite of the week: "Angry Balls." Angry Orchard cider mixed with cinnamon whiskey. WOW - I originally ordered it because of the name alone but it ended up being fantastic!!!!

Wishing you all a great Wednesday and a wonderful Fourth of July!


  1. That's a ton of interesting foods in a short time! I tried making kale chips once and wasn't satisfied... I'll have to try again.

    1. Thanks Scott! Definitely give them another try sometime - they are damn good.

      What I do: coat the kale pieces well in olive oil and whatever seasonings you'd like. Spread on baking sheet in a single layer. Bake in a preheated to 375° oven for about 10-12 minutes, stirring around once.

      Good luck, I hope you get a successful batch happening!

  2. Happy WIAW! I have not been to a baseball game for so long, I bet it was fun. Your steak sure looks tasty and the cupcake is beautiful. Have a great 4th of July! :-)

  3. Can't ever go to a baseball game w/o enjoying a nice cold beer and hot dog :) It's almost like it should be mandatory, Ha!

  4. Oh my goshhhhh wow. That looks amazing. I'll have to try that sometime VERY soon!! You are so awesome at cooking! I love all your recipes!
