I need to tell you something real quick: I WANT TO MARRY TUNA STEAKS. As I mentioned yesterday, I’m cooking a few recipes out of this super duper book I just finished. And as a mega mama lover of fish, this recipe jumped off the page, slapped my face into next week and then kissed […]

Hi. Yep. It’s November. And hi. Nope. This isn’t an old post. I really am writing about fresh tomatoes and jalapeno peppers from the garden. I really am making fresh salsa, pouring it over my Farrah Fawcett wig in slow motion, in front of a large fan, while wearing an apple red bathing suit. And […]

Okay, before you read the title of this post, break out into a clammy sweat and lunge for the browser exit, hear me out! I’m betting that if you’re like most homo sapiens, the thought of eating sardines out of a tin can is equivalent to being tarred and feathered in the middle of the […]

Are we okay? We’re cool, right? I mean, your stomach isn’t cursing your name after eating too many bowls of this is it? I had no intention of harming you or damaging our relationship in any way. You know that, right? Let’s just blame the bike, shall we? Shifting blame is fun! I did not […]

Mission accomplished! We successfully managed to scrounge up whatever was left in the fridge, pantry and garden for a quick “gettin’-out-of-town-for-a-few-days” dinner. Well, when I say “we,” I actually mean Aaron. You see, all day long yesterday I felt completely dried up on dinner ideas. (After my delicious lunch that is.) On the verge of […]

I know it’s 100 degrees out. I know it’s mid-June. I know the staple outfit these days is a bikini. I know most of you are firing up your grill tonight. I know. I still wanted soup for dinner. It’s my kitchen, I can soup if I want to. Yeah, that only sort of works, […]

Today I went the extra mile to prove to my husband that I do in fact love him. We went, and I’m not kidding, to the Street League Skateboarding Championship at the Sprint Center. Skateboarding. Let me remind you, I’m FEMALE. AND 34. In the 15,000 people that attended, there was only 1 other female, […]

So I’m approximately 32 episodes into “Take Home Chef” with Curtis Stone and I have one thing to say. YOWZA. I’d SO be okay with taking him home for an afternoon. I mean have you seen his hair?

If there is one thing in life that is absolutely certain, it is that fish + wine + saffron + garlic + tomatoes = a love like none other. Remember the feeling you got when you stared for hours on end at Joey McIntyre on your New Kids On The Block poster? This is going […]
