One of the biggest hits, which was also one of the easiest things to prepare, was this Butterfly Pasta With Kale, from The Family Dinner (which I picked up on sale the other day at Anthropologie). The only adaptation I made was using canned whole tomatoes (chopped) instead of sundried tomatoes. It was delicious!

Since moving in to our new house there has been a huge shift towards home cooked meals. I'll admit it, in NYC we were hooked on delivery, take out, and eating out. Even though I love to cook, I was worried that preparing three meals a day, every day, would overwhelm me, but I haven't been doing so badly! Having a car is helpful for stocking up on groceries, so I can shop on the weekend and actually have enough ingredients on hand to get me through the week. I have prepared a lot of old favorites, and have also had fun trying out new recipes.
