Candied Walnuts

Candied Walnuts 1 (1 of 1)

We can all agree that caramelized sugar makes everything taste 100% better, right? Case in point – popcorn. When eaten plain, it’s like chewing on salty Styrofoam. Pour some molten sugar over it, however, and you suddenly have a bowl of crunchy, sweet crack. Bacon? Same deal. Pretty tasty in general, but swoon-inducingly delicious and addictive when…read more »


Fig, Bacon, and Honey-Goat Cheese Crostini

Today’s recipe is inspired by my friend (and super talented food blogger) Sarah, who recently posted a recipe for goat cheese stuffed figs with pancetta. She served them at a dinner party a few weeks ago, and her guests gobbled them up in record time. In fact, the figs barely made it out of the kitchen, ‘cuz our…read more »


Thirsty Thursdays: Frozen Cherry Lemonade

So…this is the third week in a row that the only blogging I’ve done is the Thirsty Thursday post. Sorry about that, guys…things have been busy, and I’ve been tired and under-motivated. I’ve got a bunch of awesome, non-drink posts in the queue though, I promise! For now, lets talk about today’s post. Today’s recipe is inspired…read more »


Thirsty Thursdays: Pomegranate Lemonade Spritzers

Happy Thursday, everyone! Sorry this week’s Thirsty Thursday post is a little late…I am a lazy slacker, and sometimes it’s hard to get motivated to make drinks + take photos + write a witty post. But hey, there are 2 more hours left in the day, so it’s all good! Right? Right. Today’s post is inspired by a drink I saw on Buzzfeed…read more »


Thirsty Thursdays: Strawberry-Pineapple Agua Frescas

Now that the days are getting a little warmer (but not today…wtf, 60 degrees + rain?), I’ve decided to start a new blog series called “Thirsty Thursdays”. Pretty self explanatory – I’m gonna post a drink recipe every Thursday, and give some link love to recipes from other bloggers that I love and/or want to…read more »


Blackberry-Mint Limeade

A few weeks ago, in anticipation of Cinco de Mayo, I went to BJ’s and bought a giant sackful of limes. Fresh-squeezed, homemade margaritas are the best, you know? But when I got home with my citrus haul, I remembered that I was (still am…T-3 weeks!) supposed to be training for my first ever race and therefore not supposed to be…read more »


Easy Microwave Caramels

Raise your hands if (1) you have ever tried to make caramel from scratch, (2) horribly burned said caramel, (3) cried while scraping burnt caramel/sugar from your favorite pot, and (4) became so traumatized or disheartened by the experience that the mere thought of trying again makes you feel jumpy and nervous. No? Me neither…nevermind. Just kidding,…read more »


Frozen Shangos

Guys…what happened to spring? We had gorgeous 70 degree weather and sunny skies for about three seconds, then suddenly it was winter coat weather again, and now my iPhone weather app tells me that it’s going to be high 80s/low 90s for the next few days. It’s madness! Of course, I’m not really complaining about the warmer weather…read more »


Skinny “Spaghetti” and Meatballs

Following yesterday’s dinner of tater tots and cheese, I woke up thinking I should probably whip up something a little healthier for today. Cuz, you know…I’m a responsible adult who is capable of making good life decisions. Mmhmm. So I rolled out of bed, headed straight for the kitchen, and made a batch of healthy broccoli &…read more »



Here’s what we ate today: bacon & eggs for breakfast, nachos & beer (actually, cider for me) for lunch, and totchos for dinner. So basically…super healthy and balanced meals . It’s been kind of a great day, actually. Don’t judge me. In other news, it’s almost Cinco de Mayo! My first thought was that I should do…read more »


Flavored Bellini Bar

As a kid, my favorite part of Easter was the Easter egg hunt – finding as many plastic eggs as I could, cracking them open, then devouring all the goodies inside. As an adult, I still love Easter candy (and will definitely be hitting up CVS for discounted chocolate next week), but my new favorite thing to do on Easter…read more »
