Chris loves when he catches Sam the Cooking Guy on channel 11 (the local Cox channel, I think?).   I happened to be in the room when they aired the episode where he cooked these little, scrumptious sliders.  I was like, “Oh em gee.  I like totally have make those!”  Ha! Seriously though.. I love […]

Recipe: Honey-Peach Ice Cream

September 15, 2010

I made this shortly after September began… I guess I wanted to hold on to Summer.  And with Mother Nature’s indecisiveness, it’s kinda hard not to!  Hurricane Earl came and gone, one day it’s nearly 90 degrees and the next day I need to wear a cardigan.  I guess it’s not really Mother Nature… it’s […]

Recipe: Cajun Chicken Pasta

September 2, 2010

Remember how I said I used to only eat at chains and order the same thing over and over again?  Well, this dish is one of them.  I used to go to Chili’s on a weekly basis (I know, I’m ashamed) and I would order this dish, their strawberry lemonade, and an extra slice of […]

I just made Apartment Therapy: The Kitchn’s Killer Strawberry Milkshake.  The verdict?  Guilty.  Yes, it is now one of my guilty pleasures! But I have a story to share with all of you.  Before I even got to drink the shake, something ridiculously scary and funny happened.  Remember how I joked about Chris and the […]

A Midsummer Weekend

July 20, 2010

Although summer officially started 5 weeks ago, it feels as though half of the summer has already elapsed. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but my latest posts have been a bit… lazy? It’s hard not to be lazy when all you want to do is lounge around on these hot and humid days.  Not […]

Some days you just want to stay in and do absolutely nothing. I was able to do just that last weekend. But my definition of “doing nothing” means being able to do what I want to do without parties to go to, shopping I need to do, laundry that needs to be done, etc. It […]
