PASTAAAA. Has it been a hundred billion 81 years since I’ve eaten pasta? I think it has. No wonder I got sick. And this pasta has ACTUAL REAL LIFE ARROWS on each plate. Like, totes cupid-style. Heeey-oh! Just don’t stab your lover and blame me for the “accident.” I already have too much on my […]

Okay so there’s this….thing. That like, the majority of the population of the universe fah-rickin’ LOSE THEIR MINDS over to eat. They go to all kinds of lengths, risk important relationships, see expensive therapists, maybe even consider assassination for a single bite. I SAID MAYBE. But not me. For some reason, that one (or 45) […]

Buffalo Chicken Wraps

I have the best news ever! I’m sick. I blame my husband and whatever jerk or jerkette passed it along to him at work. Friday he came home complaining of sinus pressure and hints of fatigue and I was all, SISSY. But then I ran to the bathroom, rubbed echinacea powder and Robitussin all into […]

I don’t know how else to say this. But I would almost 100% rather have this meal coursing through my veins than blood. Okay wait, I take that back. I wouldn’t be able to taste it. What I really want is for a single ravioli with a light coating of tomato sauce to sit on […]

Story time! (heeeey now, there’s an ACCORDION in it.) I used to have a job that wasn’t related to food. I drove to a building. Sat at a desk. Hung out with human beings. Minimized chat windows and Facebook every time my boss walked by. Brushed my hair. When work slowed down this awesome woman […]

Brussels Sprouts Saute

Okay so I accidentally bought over 3 pounds of brussels sprouts. IT WASN’T MY FAULT. I walked into the grocery store the other day and immediately my ears started giddy-ing out to Mariah Carey’s “Vision Of Love.” If you’ve ever been in a grocery store with me (or anywhere else on the entire freaking planet) […]

Chicken Stroganoff

What up, Strogs? Strogy. The STROGSTER. Oh, hi! I’m just pretending it’s 1995 and totally legit to use these God-forsaken nicknames on my new most favoritest dish ever in my life. Did you know that “stroganoff” actually means “to eat your face off?” It does! And then in 1965 they shortened it to just “stroganoff […]
