[cheese + bacon pretzel buns]

I’ve been trying to watch what I eat here lately but it seems like everywhere I turn, people are sharing yummy (yet unhealthy) recipes. Berries and carbs and sugar to celebrate the upcoming Fourth of July, or frozen treats to beat the heat, and there’s always chocolate, chocolate, chocolate! It’s not easy resisting the temptation to not only eat these yummies, but to pop in the kitchen and bake something up in my free time. So, instead I thought I’d share some of the tastiest-looking treats I’ve come across recently, and their appropriate food groups: cheese, sugar, and carbs. I’m pretty sure there are no calories involved in just looking…

Happy Friday.

June 26, 2015


Happy Friday! This week has gone by so quickly, and I’m loving it. I’ve been keeping busy with school and work so my apologies for not making an appearance here earlier in the week. I’m looking forward to sharing more soon, though, and thought a roundup of what’s made me happy this week would be a nice little send-off to the weekend.

How amazing do these beignets look?!

Summer’s hottest color combo.

 My favorite summer hair.

Best news all week, hands down.

How to Boil an Egg

June 9, 2015


I have a confession to make. Every time I have to boil eggs, I Google how to do it first. In the world of learning to cook, I feel like this is the very first thing one would learn to do. It is a basic, and I’ve never mastered it. For one thing, I don’t boil eggs very often, but when I do I can’t keep the instructions straight. Do I start with cold water? cold eggs? Do I rinse them with cold water? How do I prevent them from cracking?!

SO, for the record, the best way to boil eggs goes like this:

Movies I’ve Seen Recently (And Liked)

June 8, 2015


I’ve always fancied myself a TV person. Given the chance, I’m more likely to bingewatch a whole season of Mad Men (RIP) than watch say, a Harry Potter movie. Here lately though, I’ve created a pretty nice routine of turning on a movie before bed to wind the evening down. I’m currently hooked on movies about relationships. It’s no secret that I love love and that includes stories that exemplify the many facets of romantic relationships: the silly, irrational, magical, dark, and sometimes scary feelings between two people. Here are a few movies I’ve recently enjoyed that take a unique look at relationships…
