Parrtttaayyyy

DAMN YOU PINTEREST! My life used to be so easy when it came to planning and decorating for parties. White platters (a must), coupla well thought out balloons, streamers, voila! Not anymore. Pinterest makes it nearly impossible to have a party without having to spend $200 on oversized balloons or intense DIYs that will never ever […]

Catchup

So what’s been going since my last post (before last)? A whole lotta hibernating, a quick jaunt to the Sunshine State Golden State, and a lotta recipe trying. (yes, there was a typo here, it was partially a reference to Dumb and Dumber and partially a typo I couldn’t change due to stringent firewall protection […]

Werqin’ on mah Fitness

A few weeks back I filled you in on my new adventure/challenge. I needed to shred some lbs. This time was different though. We’ve all done it, the crash diet, the quick way, eating lettuce for 4 days straight and thinking, “oh I can totally do this forever, and I’ll be 100 lbs and feel […]

Drinkin’ the Pretty: Apple Cider Sangria

I’ve said before I feel sheepish about posting recipes of schtuff I make because I feel like it’s stealing, but I guess it’s not if I’m giving credit. hmm…. either way I cannot allow my readers to go on with their lives without sipping this cocktail. This weekend we had some friends over, and I’m […]

Life Change and Rearrange (healthy cooking)

To say this has been a stressful year (October 2012-October 2013) would be an understatement. To keep privacy private, trust me you’d agree. On the lighter side of the stress, school was crazinesss, work (was) hella draining, and the stuff I used to love doing, fell to the wayside: like cooking, up-keeping the house, and […]

YUMMMMOOOOOHHHH Chili-Crusted Chicken Noodles

I’ve never posted anything about cooking or baking, I do it frequently. In fact, I cook dinner every night (other than fridays and saturdays). I love to cook, I love to bake, but I don’t post recipes because 1) They’re not mine and I feel awkward and 2) My photography is laughable and would probably […]

All I Want is a Bar Cart/Tray/Vignette

To have decanters, crystal tumblers, and liquor on display for all to see….is that too much to ask? Again, along with a green velvet couch, this is something I will wait for when we get our hard wood floors. (I’m assuming that after the installation of our floors, the purchasing of multiple rugs, and putting […]

Frolicking about the Farmers Market

I love farmers markets. I never get to them though. Hub and I have been talking about getting to the Denville Farmers Market for weeks now, and finally we had a Sunday to do it. First things first, we can’t do ANYTHING in the a.m. without a little caffeine in our systems: We try to […]
