SkinnyPop and wine: Your new OTP

It’s that time of year again, folks. Time for gluttony and indulgence and feeling like shit about yourself when you wake up in the morning and realize how you spent your evening. That’s right, it’s The Bachelorette season. But while it’s easy to feel guilt over the two hours of your life you sacrifice each week,…

Friday Favorites: Flatbreads

When people ask me what my favorite food is, my answer is easy. Not like sandwich bread—in fact, we never even have that in the house—but crusty, artisany breads. (I’m not entirely sure what that means—but whenever that word is used to describe a loaf of bread it’s a kind I need to GET IN MY BELLY.)…

World’s Best Toffee

It’s a bold statement, I know, but I’ll stand behind it until my last breath. Which will probably be due to overstuffing my face with this toffee. The best part, besides the fact that it’s the world’s best toffee, is that it’s so ridiculously easy. Not easy like that Sigma Nu hoped I was in 1987…

Santa’s Little Helpers III

♫ It’s that time of year … when the world falls in love … every song you hear seems to say … have a martini. ♫ OK, fine, it doesn’t, but it should.  Because there’s nothing that puts the jolly in your holly (just go with it) and takes the occasional grinchies away quite like a…

Friday Favorites: Gluttony

Huh. I just realized the last Friday Favorites post I published was a few weeks ago and it was titled “Indulgences.” This week it’s “Gluttony.” Nothing like making my way through the seven deadly sins this summer. Again. And yes, I know indulgence isn’t formally one of the seven deadly sins, but it’s close enough to…

Friday Favorites: Valentine martini

Today there’s only one Friday Favorite, but I promise you won’t complain. Please stop trying to lick your computer screen, it won’t work. (I know. I’ve tried.) Last weekend I was flipping through the latest issue of People, and came across this, which showcased three things that I find fabulous: Lisa Vanderpump, raspberries, and MARTINIS.…

Friday Favorites – Blood Orange Cosmo

If you should know anything about me, it’s that I love a good, festive cocktail. Well, that and the fact that my head has the cirumference of a prize-winning watermelon and that I know all the words to the theme song to “Joanie Loves Chachi” and will gladly sing it upon request, but it’s true that…

Avocado Bacon Nachos!

In honor of America’s birthday today, I’ve decided to share a new favorite recipe for nachos. Because nothing says, “Happy Birthday, America!” like food from south of the border. But seriously. I discovered this recipe from the latest People magazine which featured the Today Show hosts’s favorite Fourth of July recipes. And apparently, Willie Geist…

Tortellini Pasta Salad

If you’ve been hanging around here long enough, you know how I feel about cooking. If you haven’t, I’ll give you a hint: I hate it. It never fails to make me chuckle, then, to realize that my two most pinned pins on Pinterest (say that 10x fast) lead people to posts where I shared a…

Santa’s Little Helpers II

“With Enough Wine, the Holidays Will be Fine.” It’s one of my favorite sayings this time of year, but since I don’t really think wine should have all the fun and because martinis make me feel fancy, I’m once again sharing some of my favorite recipes with you to help get you through the upcoming…
