That time I was a sh***y friend

Sometimes I'm a good friend. Sometimes I'm not. This past Tuesday I was a really sh***y friend to my best friend. My husband's birthday was Tuesday and guys... I forgot about it. It was in the back of my mind but for some reason it was not a priority. I didn't make it a priority. … Continue reading That time I was a sh***y friend

Parmesan kale pesto

The hubs and I are in super drive because of school and scheduling conflicts. It seems like we see each other for only a couple hours a day.

“Healthy food is meant to be bland right!?!” : Feisty brown rice

Rice is a staple food in our house because it's filling, cheap and can be used in a variety of recipes. Confession: I don't make rice on the stove. I actually hate the process.

The green machine pasta

D-Money and I are on a 10 day cleanse/ detox. After our decadent vacation of food, lazy times and booze, we figured it was time to get back to normal. The best way?

Buffalo Chicken Fried Wontons (can be vegetarian friendly!)

I haven't posted anything since Friday and was starting to have blog withdrawals. No more extended breaks, k? I have felt pretty out of it the past few days, maybe the lack of blogging, maybe the excessive drinking at the wedding (which was awesome and I will discuss later), maybe the 8 hour drives there … Continue reading Buffalo Chicken Fried Wontons (can be vegetarian friendly!)

A week of tortillas: delightful veggie quesadilla

I am trying this new diet called the 8 hour diet. Has anyone heard of it? My super hip and in-the-know brother in law, GQ, told me about it.

This … Continue reading A week of tortillas: delightful veggie quesadilla
