january brought a virus that sucked the life out of our entire family. we are all feeling better now and ready to take on the day. when i wasn't wiping the noses of my twin girls or napping to try to catch up with sleep, january was all about nesting in this cold boston weather. trying out new recipes. cleaning with mrs. meyers basil cleaners (want to try the iowa pine scent). organizing and purging. reading magazines and watching entertaining tv (white collar, modern family, and project runway) with lots of blankets over our laps. here are some of the recipes we experimented with that i would make over and over again.

1. lentil sausage soup. we froze the leftovers and it was just as good heated up the next week.

2. pasta with roasted cauliflower, arugula and prosciutto. healthy and cauliflower is in season.

3. moroccan chicken couscous. i doubled the spices because we like a kick.

4. chicken tetrazzini. this takes awhile to make. 1+ hours, but is well worth it because you get so many meals out of it.

5. coconut cupcakes. enough said!!

the lovely stephanie at stephmodo gave me the idea for 1+2. thank you!! she has more recipes to love here.
