I have the best possible way to kickstart your week!
One of these + a cup of coffee = an extra amazing Monday morning for you!
Portable breakfasts are the best. I like being able to carry around my breakfast in one hand, and coffee or tea in the other. I tell myself it’s so I can get stuff done in the mornings, but I think I’m just too antsy to sit at a table by myself and eat without a book or computer screen in my face. I even eat my cereal out of coffee mugs (and late night ice cream, too, so I can sit on the couch and watch TV while I indulge).
Okay, this makes me sound really lazy! I swear I’m not that bad. I did something not lazy and ran the Toughmudder on Saturday! I think this photo sums up the day fairly well:
PumpkinFest 2014 is in full swing in my kitchen. I’m cranking out pumpkin recipes left and right. But you know where it’s not in full swing? My coffee cup. At the grocery store the other day I was more than a little distressed to find out that they had nary a one pumpkin spice coffee creamer stocked. Starbuck’s
It’s Fall, which means it’s football season, and my favorite time of the year… …and I realized that I haven’t really given you guys any good snacky football recipes, yet, and I don’t know what I’ve been thinking. We’re changing that right here, right now with these insanely delicious balls of fried goodness. You’ve had jalapeño
It’s officially Fall. You no what that means, right? PUMPKIN EVERYTHING! This is that time of year where every food blog has like 47 new ways you may or may not thought of to use pumpkin, and everyone waxes on and on about their love for the orange squash while jumping up and down internally. And, um,
Are you weirded out because I called this ice cream “fluffy”? But it is so fluffy! (Cue that little girl from Despicable Me with the unicorn plushie.) Because I whipped the cream before incorporating it, the texture of the ice cream becomes almost mousse-like. It’s kinda perfect for a peanut butter base which can sometimes
Guys, I’m doing it. I’m breaking out a squash recipe. With just a few days (FOUR!) ’til Fall, I decided it’s acceptable, hah. When I passed the amazing squash display at my supermarket, I just couldn’t pass up grabbing a couple of my fave type—delicata. Um, if you haven’t had delicata squash, you’re seriously missing
Sometimes I eat weird things because it just feels right. For instance, anytime I am served a salad with bread on the side I immediately make a salad sandwich. If you do this to, you get it. You sop up the dressing with the bread, and pile it high with the lettuce and all it’s accoutrements,
Um, why the heck is it still so hot out… It’s mid-September, and there is a high of 87 degrees today…in SEATTLE. Yesterday there were insanely hot (like 120 degrees) temperatures in Southern California (which led to the Seahawks falling apart and losing. And I’m still crying, so don’t even talk to me about it).
