We have 7 days left until Christmas. Does that give anyone else gas? I have to say, I’ve been quite the little miss holiday spirit cheerleader this season. I’ve charmingly entertained my husband with my best inebriated Kermit THE Frog impression singing Feliz Navidad, 33 times. I used tinsel as dentil floss and was all, […]

Thin Crust Pizza with Tomatoes, Mushrooms and Broccoli

I blame Charlie Brown. All weekend long I listened to the Charlie Brown Christmas album while shopping for presents, wrapping presents and rewrapping presents. (don’t ask) But of course my undying devotion for the pizza pie paired with my weirdo cranial blob kept me from hearing the correct lyrics to the song and instead tortured […]

DING DONG. The doorbell rings. The sun has set. I’m in egg nog-stained yoga pants and my sock bun doth saggeth. Gripping the 14 heart attacks scrambling to escape my chest bone, I walk over to the kitchen window and peek out to see a UPS truck zipping away, leaving me with a gigantic cardboard […]
