Caitlin’s Kitchen: Pizza

Ryan and I observe Pizza Friday almost every Friday night to celebrate the end of the work week. It’s a fun tradition that gives us the opportunity to unwind and cook together. I joke that we seem like such ‘old people,’ as I think back on a time in my life when Friday night was the night to go out. The reality at the end of the week, however, is that we’re exhausted. Most of the time, a pizza, some wine, and a movie is the most favorable option. When it comes to pizza, we try to mix it up.…

The Best Outdoor Spaces on Aquidneck Island

Sometimes, if I’m ever feeling jealous of the mountains up North or the canyons out West, I take myself to the beach. Aquidneck Island has some of the most beautiful spots in the world, in my opinion. Most days, I’m walking around saying to myself- wow, we live here. As the weather warms and we begin spending more time outside, I’ve been compiling a list of my favorite outdoor spaces on Aquidneck Island. Weather you’re looking to hike (more like walk) or run, picnic or read, there are plenty of locations for your enjoyment. The Norman Bird Sanctuary I’ve written…

Caitlin’s Confections: Brown Butter Lemon Cakes

The weather has finally taken a positive turn in New England and I am all for it. The amount of rain we got over the last month was absurd. Not only was it the only thing people could talk about, but it was also really getting people down. For me, when I’m feeling particularly dreary, I bake. Yes, that does have to do, in part, with the fact that I can stand at the open oven door afterwards. However, I find that sweet treats make a grey afternoon far better. I posted a recipe for one of my favorite confections,…

Secrets From the World’s Longest-Lived People

If you had the choice, would you want to live to be 100? If asked, it’s my assumption that most people would offer an enthusiastic yes. Even though the average life expectancy for an American is 78.2 years of age, over 70’000 Americans reached their 100th birthday last year. My students and I were watching CNN 10 the other day, which we do frequently (fellow educators- it really is a GREAT resource) and when they aired a segment on Blue Zones, I was instantly infatuated by the concept. I started reading and researching, trying to figure out just what Dan…

Caitlin’s Confections: Death by Chocolate Buttercream Cupcakes

Do I have a recipe for you. I made these cupcakes for a weekend trip up to Vermont and was so excited with the way they turned out. Everyone seemed to really enjoy them (the most important part of baking anything) and they looked pretty picture perfect. Now I’m planning to make them for every celebration that graces my calendar in the future.  A few years ago I worked at a cupcake shop for three summers in a row. I’m pretty sure I was a cupcake expert before that, but the job experience really helped me nail that title. One…

Read & Reviewed: Three Thrilling Mysteries

I’ve been getting the chance to read a bit more lately, which I love. However, if I’m going to get through a few pages a night and not fall asleep in bed, I need a book that really has my attention. I recently finished three thrilling mysteries that I have to share for their gut wrenching plots and incredible writing. I hope if you give them a try, you enjoy them as much as I did. The Lying Game – Ruth Ware This story follows four friends as they reconnect and cope with consequences of an event that occured when…
