That’s RIGHT I did, yo. Okay seriously – “yo?” I swear, if there was a Nerd Jar on this internet blog website, I’d be BROKE AS A JOKE. <— see? help me. The true fact deal is, I haven’t been able to get the pizza version of these out of my head. Wait, are these […]

I’ve been on a mission, y’allins. A mission with high heels on. Just kidding. I’ve not worn high heels since I worked in a bank. Actually, I wore some cute brown chunky half heels with this cool strap to brunch this past weekend, but I guess that’s not rightly important right now. Let me start […]

I swear I could put lime and cilantro on everything ever. You must feel like all you read on this blog is, “AND GARNISH WITH LOTS OF LIME AND CILANTRO OR ELSE YOU’LL GROW TWO HEADS AND HAVE ALLIGATOR SKIN BY MORN’.”   You poor thing! I put it on tacos, in soups, on stir […]

OMG. Do you see that yellow glow coming from this pot o’ curry? Okay, ignore the yellow light reflection in the actual pot (photo shoot fail!) but look INSIDE at that rich, vibrant curry sauce that BEGS for your tongue to do the Electric Slide through it.

It’s time to be a good girl. It’s time to snuggle some vegetables, pony up to some fiber, group hug some fruit, and drink my way through an Olympic-sized swimming pool. Minus the chlorine. Not that I can’t appreciate a juicy mcgruicy burger from time to time, but after sampling 6 (SIX, you guys) of […]

Yesterday I picked up some yellow wax beans at the farmer’s market, with zilchy ideas of what to do with them. I even asked the seller and his response sounded like he was gurgling cough syrup. “Uhh, okay, that sounds great!” I said. I walked away quickly, frightened, and alone. But thanks to your suggestions […]

The Great Vegetarian Challenge: Day 6 Remember when I left 2 days open this week because I had no idea where the course of my life would take me? Well, one of those days was yesterday. I had a girlfriend over mid-afternoon to nibble on cheese and sip wine, and as the cozy rain showers […]

Tonight I’m going to an Italian cooking class and I am so so SO excited. It’s even located at my most favorite Italian restaurant in town. A friend of mine organized it and the guest list is tiny, so it’s going to be intimate and perfect. I’m pretty sure that I’m going to sob the […]
