Egg & Avocado Toast – the midyear resolution to eat healthy begins

so, i’ve found it nearly impossible to follow a new years resolution of any kind, no matter how simple. (see my last post…from january… where i said i’d update my blog more, and here we are in may) it just cannot be done. thus, i’ve taken on the mentality that they’re stupid and i wont … Continue reading

Mexican Quinoa Salad

Okay, so here’s the deal. I, like every other red-blooded American with low self esteem want 2014 to be different. Better. Healthier. More fit. Blah  blah blah blah blah. Really I do, I just refuse to subscribe to the whole ‘resolutions’ thing. If there is a train everyone is on, I do not want to … Continue reading

Baked Eggs in Ham Cups (alternate name: Pinterest Fail)

The really cool thing about the food I cook, is that is tastes good even when it doesn’t look good. Sometimes it’s because I go off the book with recipes and decide I’m too good for them, other times it’s because I forget [possibly refuse] to buy the adorable fresh green  parsley/basil/cilantro garnish that legitimate … Continue reading

Margherita Pizza

Yup… I made those 8 slices of heaven. It wasn’t easy, but I did it. 15 tireless minutes of unrolling the pre-made pizza dough, and slicing the prepackaged mozzarella. I don’t work out, so it was entirely exhausting. My arms are a little sore today. This isn’t a ‘true’ recipe post…but I had kind of  a … Continue reading

Monterey Chicken ….cue romantic music & swoon

Quick, easy, delish, bang boom bam.  I would be lying to you if I said my taste buds didn’t scream “SPICE! TOO SPICY! …but more. give me moTOO SPICY, more.” oh the battle of spice/give me more; what you’ve never heard of this? Me either, I made it up. Also, the thing I love about … Continue reading

Frenchiest French Onion Soup

This is one I’m very proud of.  Probably the only one I’m proud enough of to show The Queen a photo of this masterpiece. She was mildly impressed. We were stuck in this epic storm (4 inches), we were drunk, I had two days off from work, a need to cook, no way to get … Continue reading

Cinnamon Sugar Pull Apart Bread

First, just let me say, bread is a BITCH to make. The mother of all bitches, this was not easy. Although I also had Kevin popping in and out of the kitchen wanting to help with the ‘fun’ parts (1, he is a child. 2, he never wants to help with anything like, oh say, … Continue reading
