This week, I really wanted to dive into some veggie-forward recipes because, 1) buying veggies tends to be a heck of a lot cheaper than buying meat, and 2) with our upcoming CSA experience in a little less than a month from now, I need to start scoping out some potential recipes to make the most … Continue reading On Vegging Out
About two weeks ago, Alex & I changed up the game plan because of the warmer weather and decided to make a couple different bruschetta's as part of a delicious and fairly light Sunday lunch/dinner! What a way to spend a Sunday afternoon! Not to mention that Frankie & I spent the evening on our porch … Continue reading On Cooking with Alex #3: Bruschetta Bananza!
But DON'T be alarmed! Recommendations will come back when they can, but for now, I am going to be on a thrifty budget because...WE ARE GOING TO NEW ZEALAND FOR OUR HONEYMOON!!! If you can't tell, I am MORE than excited, but that does mean my budget has to adjust to accomodate for more savings. … Continue reading On One Last Big Recommendation Post
If I haven't already said it, and I'm pretty sure I have, Whole30 was indeed life-changing. Not only does junk food or fast food no longer taste the same, it's no longer appealing either. Not that that's a bad thing, because it totally isn't (better on our budget and better on our waistbands too), but … Continue reading On Healthy Eating [After Whole30]
I can't believe how much I look forward to these posts! I love to cook on my own, don't get me wrong, but getting to cook with one of your best friends (and my oldest friend for that matter, going on almost 22 years of friendship) and see actual moments of what it is that … Continue reading On Cooking with Alex #2: Mini Turtle Cheesecakes with Salted Caramel Sauce
IT HAPPENED! IT FINALLY HAPPENED! My friend Alex & I finally got our FaceTime's going and cooked together (catching up along the way as well), and it was so much fun and we've already been discussing what to make next, so I'm super looking forward to our upcoming segments together! And since this was all … Continue reading On Cooking with Alex #1: Alex’s Pork Noodle Bowls
Dear Readers: My apologies for my incredibly late delay in a post…it’s been a busy last couple of weeks with some updates to announce! The first: Cooking with Friends will premiere for the very first time on Tuesday, April 17th, and will be posted later that evening or the next day (depending on how quickly … Continue reading On All The Catching Up
I can’t believe how close we are to being done! It’s Day 29, and tomorrow is DAY 30!!! Holy smokes! Sure, those last few days definitely have that “is day 29 pretty much the same thing as day 30” feel to it, and don’t worry, I absolutely am not going to give up! I will … Continue reading On Last Week of Whole30
In case any of you wondered, Frankie and I did not go out for St. Patty’s Day this year, and you know what, I’m really okay with it, especially since it was a headache I didn’t have to deal with on Sunday! Yahoo! Instead, I got to hang out at home and really unwind from … Continue reading On Whole30 [Day 16 – 22] & A NEW LOGO!!
This week was all about fighting against cravings, and not being so concerned with meal planning, which fell to pieces anyway...it’s just not my thing. I can see how it’s helpful for sure, but by the time I say, “Yes, I will cook that,” I don’t want to eat it or make it come grocery … Continue reading On Whole30 [Day 2-15]
I’m sorry for the length, but I did warn I was going to be as accurate as possible. So far, with a week in, and yes, I’m having some cravings, but not as bad as I would have thought. Day 2 I think was the worst for cravings (cheese, chocolate, rice), but after that, especially … Continue reading On Whole30 [Day 2 – Day 8]
If there’s one thing you need to know about me, aside from the fact that I love to cook, is that I love to read! With the book group I’m in right now, we meet on Sundays and have started to pair our deep discussion of the book with brunch! GENIUS! I don’t know why … Continue reading On Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake Cupcakes & Whole30 Day 1
