Easter booty

with Easter less than 3 weeks away, i’m thrilled to announce that i am planning absolutely zero crafting, cooking or decorating projects to commemorate the holiday. not a single dyed egg, cute basket or bunny cake for me this year. to tell the truth, i think i’m still not over the whole cakepops ordeal from Valentine’s Day. but […]

Friday favorites: la France edition 2

(photo: imashon.com) happy Friday, y’all! i for one am so glad this week is almost over! we’ve got a kind of full weekend of soccer (!!) and school events happening, but as long as it doesn’t involve work or anyone getting on a plane, i’m certain i can handle whatever comes up. speaking of getting […]

wine Wednesday: we all scream for wine ice cream!

just wow. anybody who’s ever had a gruesome, wallow-inducing break-up, something rooftop-shoutingly phenomenal to celebrate or just an everyday case of feeling utterly decadent will totally be able to relate to the sheer awesomeness of this find: Mercer’s Wine Ice Cream. in the ultimate 2-great-tastes-that-taste-great-together combo, the most clichéd and delicious heartbreak/celebration/indulgence go-to foods confirm what i’ve always known: […]

it’s a heart-shaped world

i feel like such a season pusher here. it isn’t even February yet and i’m already posting about Valentine’s Day. personally, i think Valentine’s Day is a commercialized load of well crap fraught with unrealistic expectations and inevitable disappointments (thanks Hollywood and Madison Avenue). that said, there are so many completely cute things to make (and eat)! with […]

sunday Supper: Moosewood lentil soup

well, oops! i just realized i never hit Publish on this Sunday night! no wonder y’all haven’t been loving on it. lol. belated deliciousness ahead . . . i’m so incredibly into soups right now. it’s winter. they’re easy. and i can bring the leftovers for lunch until pretty much forever. strolling the pasta/beans/rice aisle […]

Sunday supper: random Asian stir-fry

god, things are getting completely exotic around here, right? i call this “random Asian” because it mixes some Indian, Thai and Chinese influences, incorporating curry, Siracha and, um, stir-fry. and chopsticks. definitely chopsticks. also, i just needed a title that sounded more appropriate than “random shit i put in the wok tonight”. also, i actually […]

half-assin’ it like a champ!

photo: (perezhilton.com) mmm-hmm. so yesterday morning when i was all like yes, 2015, bring it! immo do a buncha stuff starting today and totally rock it. yeah! yeah, that. by the end of the day yesterday, i’d already decided to blow off the Blogging 101 thing. no, not because i’m a slacker. the first assignment […]

orange you glad it’s Saturday?

sorry. i couldn’t resist. every year for the holidays, my dad sends us a crate of citrus from Florida. various kinds of oranges, gorgeous red grapefruits, tangerines . . . you name it. finally a couple years ago, i bought a juicer because, i mean, a person can only eat so many oranges, right? best.

Friday Favorites

anyone else having trouble remembering what day it is? omg. i’m on day 3 of a 5 day break from work and am pretty much in a complete days daze. it’s freaking fantastic. so when i realized on the way home from the vet (fluids for Mr. P) that today is Friday, i thought what […]

Sunday supper: the last Sunday

today is my very favorite day all year. well, right now, at least. it’s the shortest day of the year. and i am miserably tired of waking up in the dark, taking Miss Girl to school in practically the dark (it’s not light here until about 7:30) and getting home in the dark. as of […]

Friday, y’all: pantry livin’

omg. why has this week seemed like it was 1,000 years long? perhaps too many late nights with too much holiday cheer. perhaps too much expectation and excitement for next week. perhaps a (still!) too long to do list and too little time, despite my best-laid plans. whatever the reason, the fact remains that i […]

the Christmas party

i cannot even believe it is only 10 days ’til Christmas, y’all! i thought i had everything under control. now i’m not so sure. but aside from that minor detail of oh, you know, presents, i have hit all my major milestones, including the infamous Woodward Holiday Open House. this party is so legendary, i […]

gingerbread friends

lord. Miss Girl talked me into buying this gingerbread cookie kit at Michael’s last weekend. i knew it was bad news,  but i did it anyway. obvs. because i’m the best/worst mom in the world. it came with 8 pre-baked cookies, 2 colors of fondant, a mess of white icing and decorative candies. okay, let’s […]

NaBloPoMo day 25: my Thanksgiving recipes

mmm-kay. so ‘member last night when i said i’d try and post my recipes? (yeah, you do.) well this had the potential to get totally ghetto. y’all almost got iPhone pictures of the ass-old-stained-scribbled-on-now-moldy-because-i-have-no-idea-why pages in my recipe binder. but i decided i was better than that. and these recipes deserve better than that. they are […]
