On Shrimp Boil Foil Packets

Adulting is hard. But of course it is…I don’t think anyone has ever woken up and said that being an adult in our current world was easy, especially when you’re part of the world that lives paycheck to paycheck and/or has a bunch of student loans that don’t seem to really go anywhere…the last few…

On Ice Cube Tray Sushi

It’s really not as weird as it sounds, and in fact, this trick is pretty clever! I was perusing Pinterest (as one is wont to do when on the train or in front of the TV) and I came across this “Make Sushi At Home” image and I was very curious! So much so, that…

On Mussels Charmoula (Senate Style)

As if I haven’t done enough big adulting things this month, here’s my last bit of big news! THIS CHICK GOT A NEW JOB as a Marketing Coordinator for a law firm! Now, I can’t announce exactly where I’ll be working for another week (I do have a LinkedIn page for anyone interested in creeping…

On Trout and More Wedding Shinanigans

It is with a huge relief that I say wedding planning is wrapping up! (PHEW!) But what a journey! It’s now been over a year since we got engaged and started to plan our future together, and this past weekend was no exception. Frankie got his ring in on Thursday (CHECK!), Saturday morning I had…

On Benihana Chicken Fried Rice and Ginger Sauce at Home

How many of us have gone to Benihana’s (or some other hibachi restaurant)? *RAISES HANDS* And how many of us have fallen in love with that delicious, yellow yum yum sauce?! *RAISES BOTH HANDS* Oh yeah, that’s what I’m talking about. Back when I was still living in the States, Benihana’s was where I always wanted to go…

On Fish & Chips

If I’ve learned anything this year, it’s that I can only get better at different techniques with time and practice, and the only way to practice is to, well, cook! Especially for Alex, who is getting more confident and adventurous in the kitchen every time we cook, these FaceTime moments together are providing both of…

On Cooking with Alex #4: Fish & Chips

On Seared Barramundi and Post-Whole30

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…

On Healthy Eating [After Whole30]

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…

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…
