Today is so pretty out! I’m definitely busting out the shorts after a short winter hiatus. I used to think southern California was a shorts all year kind of place. I think for the most part, it can be. My salty east coast self would grumble from under my parka, “They don’t know cold.” But, after living here for almost a year, I have to say, this winter was a bit chilly!!
Love these Pesto + Sausage Sweet Potato Noodles for an easy weeknight meal that you can throw together in a pinch!
I threw this dinner together one night on my Insta stories and a bunch of you asked for the recipe. Today I’m sharing it here on da blog AND you can watch me make it in the video above. If you haven’t checked out my YouTube recently, hop on over and say hi! I upload cooking vids (and some other random fun ones) every Tuesday and Friday! I’d love to have you be a part of my YouTube fam!!
I don’t remember my weekly breakfasts too much as a kid. I remember in high school eating a lot of oatmeal and hot chocolate. I remember eating eggs here and there, and waffles were always a welcomed meal. College was all about enjoying a coffee and muffin during my first morning class. Nowadays, breakfasts are tough for me.
It’s here, it’s here!! I’ve been wanting to make paella forevaa!! It’s always been in the back of my mind, but I’ve never made a paella before and it felt intimidating. Guys, paella is SO much easier than you think!! Crazy easy.
This one time when I was about 12 years old, I was down the shore with my friend Laura. As we talked about how hungry we were, I realized my mom would keep tastycakes in the freezer. I grabbed two for a snack, one for me, one for Laura. Well, I tossed her the package…
I know weeknight dinners can be hard. I have a whole Pinterest board dedicated to them because I know they can be super rushed, un-inspired, and overall just… boring.
I’ve been craving Mexican food hard lately. Whether it’s nachos or quesadillas, I’ve been craving that spicy, cheesy goodness. I don’t know what it is, but at least once a week I’m reaching for those Mexican-inspired flavors.
I don’t mean to sound too much like Jerry Seinfeld, but what’s the deal with mattress pads?! We’ve been sleeping on the worst mattress ever for… um 10 years. What’s so bad about it, you ask? We hacked it from a condo my mom sold and the new owners didn’t want it so obviously the poor college students would take it. At 20, I didn’t think twice about it. But now, as an adult, I’m pretty sure this is in the top 5 grossest things I’ve ever done.
Every Monday I think to myself, “maybe I should try dairy-free.” I usually think it as I’m pouring half and half into my coffee and think, “nahh, maybe next Monday.” There is a part of me that wants to try dairy free. Here’s the thing…
What do you look forward most to when you have a holiday brunch? It may be the quiche, the ability to eat both breakfast AND lunch on one plate, gathering around with family (obviously). Aside from all the wonderful things to brunch on, I think every good brunch needs to be rounded out with a fun dessert.
