Remember this from Instagram land? WELL, it’s now available at a website near you!  I call it the “Christmas Kitchen Sink Soup” because: a) It’s all Christmas-y with some serious cinnamon and nutmeg business. b) You can pretty much throw anything into this soup (except ornaments, duh) and still have your face melt off in […]

Whooooa, Nellie! I’m going to warn you now, I got a little picture happy with this post. I’m going to blame it on the fact that it’s a lasagna. And lasagnas call for layering. And layering calls for pictures. Lots and lots of pictures. Ya know, I find that some food bloggers are super awesome […]
