Brussels Sprouts Salad with Seared Shrimp and Bacon

I’ve got some good news for you. But first, I don’t know how this happened, or when or why or where, given the 723 tubes of Burt’s Bees lip balm littering my house and life, but somehow over the last 12 to 24 hours my lips have become ever so slightly chapped, shifting into that […]

Chicken & Pesto Panini and an Avocado-Citrus Salad

Shooooooot, y’all. It’s double doozy doozer day. Oh my gosh do you remember the old show from 1986 on Nickelodeon called Double Dare?!

I Might Be a Tad Excited

I start a 3-day weekend tomorrow night. And you know what that means? BEAN TACOS. Alright, so maybe it doesn’t really have anything to do with bean tacos. The reason for the long weekend is that our family is headed to town to see us! You know what that means, don’t you? BEAN TACOS. Ok, […]
