I leave for summer camp tomorrow and I could not be more excited about it. More specifically, I’m leaving on a jet plane early early early (like, pre-dawn early) to fly out to California for an adventure known as Camp Blogaway. And that’s just what it is — camp. Like, sleeping bags and cabin bunks [...]
In the nearly four years we’ve been married, my husband and I have learned most of each others’ quirks. Like how I have a very specific sense of order about my things and if they are moved even an inch by my husband, I notice. Or, how he couldn’t care less about the cleanliness of [...]
A few announcements: Firstly, THANK YOU for the wonderful birthday wishes. I never cease to be amazed by how lovely the blogging community is and I am so blessed to be a part of it. I heart you all big time and I’m giving you all virtual bear hugs right now. I hope you don’t [...]
It’s official: I cannot be trusted around cheese. It doesn’t matter, really, what kind of cheese it is — soft, hard, shredded, string, stinky, mild, sharp — it all comes into play. But if it’s warm and gooey and melty like what you see above, I’m especially unruly. Come within three feet of me and [...]
This week has been an exercise in limitations. After one too many recipe failures, unnecessary messes (both literally and figuratively), moments of stretching myself thin and subsequently a few too many sessions of eating my feelings, I decided to take a break for a day or two before venturing back into the kitchen. Plus, it [...]
Obviously this post is just another excuse for me to eat dessert for breakfast. Because I mean, when you think of yogurt, you think of breakfast. When you think of strawberries, you think of chocolate-covered strawberries. So when you think of strawberry yogurt, you think of dark chocolate-covered strawberry crepes. At least, that’s where my [...]
I’m going to let it be spring. Even if it’s still blustery and snowing outside; even if the clouds are persistent; even if I can’t see the buds on the trees yet or my sandals are still collecting dust. I’m just going to sit here and drink my cocktail and let it be spring. I’m [...]
After many a school bus ride, late-night sleepover and family huddle around the campfire, it’s safe to say that if you and I ever play the “What is the one food you could eat every day for the rest of your life?” game, my answer always will be Mexican food. I cannot and will not [...]
The Easter pancake fun continues! When life gives you pancake batter, you make Easter egg pancakes. Or at least that’s how it goes in my book. Especially because it’s a really good excuse to put frosting and sprinkles on your breakfast.
This Easter egg-dyeing situation happened out of a moment of sheer “OhmygoshI’malmosttwentysixyearsold” panic (which is still a good month and a half away, by the way, but I like to panic early). It’s why I rolled some eggs in glitter — for my inner preteen. It’s why I wrapped parsley leaves around eggs and stained [...]
Oh yes, I totally went there. I turned my pancakes into a bunny butt and it was delicious. And weird. And delicious. And fun. And delicious. When Bisquick and Tablespoon asked me to create a few Easter-themed pancake recipes for them, I was ALL. OVER. IT. Seriously? You want me to make pancakes? Like a [...]
See this? This makes me love mornings. Well, coffee does, too, but this helps. Flaky, buttery layers with vegetables and turkey and eggs and cheese? Oh yeah, I can get down with that. Or up, if you will — up in the morning with a yummy brunch bake. And coffee.
Because seven layers weren’t enough. Because I love Mexican food. Because — well, just because. Sometimes, an explanation isn’t necessary.
