Easy Dinner – One Pan Skillet Spaghetti Recipe!

There’s a time and place for cooking an elaborate meal, and it’s not during the week. Especially in the fun but frenetic weeks between school finishing up and camp beginning. This one-pan skillet spaghetti recipe from Kathleen, the mom behind CatwithaK Cooks, is more of a technique than a rigid recipe, because it’s so easily adapted to your family’s tastes and dietary restrictions/allergies. “I learned this method when I worked for Martha Stewart. She was doing a one-pan pasta way before Tik Tok!” says Kathleen.

If Progressive Diagnostics (a highly coveted same day PCR-testing option) rings a bell, keep reading! In 2014, passionate about helping others, Curt Kuliga (and his wife Anna-Karin- whom he calls A-K!) founded Progressive Diagnostics, a medical technology company focused on the mental health, addiction and diagnostic testing markets. Dad of two in Westport, Curt and his wife were compelled- despite the many risks – to pivot their business to provide same-day PCR Covid-tests, and became the only mental health and addiction provider willing to treat individuals in person (and via telehealth). Curt loves to innovate – and seeing things that others may not – when It means he can help. Because of their COVID-19 testing, they have been able to contribute over $50,000 to local mental health and addiction treatment programs this year. In his spare time, Curt loves his annual trips to Sweden with his family sushi at Compo Beach, and playing sports with his kids! Thank you Curt for changing so many lives!

Meet Brian!

June is both Pride month – and a time when we celebrate Father’s – so we thought what better way to kick things off then with Brian McGunagle, local dad and founder of Westport Pride! Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month (LGBT Pride Month) is celebrated annually in June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots, and works to achieve equal justice and equal opportunity for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) Americans. All year long, however, Brian and the amazing community he has formed (which was spurred by a conversation with Dan Woog just nine months ago), have provided a space for people to feel connected, supported, and mentored. By day, Brian does IT Project Management – and is pursuing his call to be a priest for a Church here in Westport! In his spare time, he loves anything with his son Henry and husband Stephen, who he can not imagine any of this without! Though becoming a father was not the easiest process, It has truly been a dream come true. Westport is so lucky to have Brian leading the way!

Meet Courtney (get ready to laugh)!

If you want to laugh, read this, and then start following @thecourtneydavis immediately! Mom to a two year old boy with a little girl on the way, Courtney is a mom by day, and comedian by night (or whenever time allows!). She wanted to be a clown as a kid, but her mom wasn’t sure that was the best career path, so she started acting, and the rest is history. Courtney is thrilled to be joining Homes for Home for their Comedy Show fundraiser on Saturday, June 12th! Courtney lives for bean and cheese burritos, loves how people know how to party in Westport, and is currently addicted to MTV’s show “Are you the One?” (which she highly recommends)! Courtney has an amazing way of making you feel like her best friend immediately, while making you laugh incessantly; we are so glad she chose Westport as her home!

Taco Tuesday! Roasted Cauliflower Tacos with Avocado Crema!

Thank you to our food contributor CatwithaK Cooks for sharing this delicious plant-based taco recipe with us. Introducing new vegetables (like cauliflower) to kids can be tricky. Experts recommend serving it in a form they are familiar with (in this case, tacos). Try it for Taco Tuesday, or anytime you need a quick, nutritious meal.

Chocolate Cherry Smoothies to Start the Day!

This refreshing smoothie from Elizabeth Lim, the talented mom behind Beach Cities Moms, is an antioxidant and inflammatory powerhouse. Filled with superfoods like cherries and cacao, it can be made with any kind of milk and different types of nut butter. The best part? It tastes like chocolate covered cherries!

Why are Bill and Melinda Divorcing?

As a seasoned divorce attorney, Carole Orland of Broder, Orland, Murray & DeMattie has been asked that question by many friends, relatives, and colleagues since The Announcement. The bottom line is: she does not know. However, her years of experience provide her with some possible insight, as there is a typical range of reasons people, particularly a prominent and uber wealthy couple, call it quits. So, heres her thoughts on what those possibilities are, and you can decide for yourself, or maybe someday some version of the truth will surface!
