Get some Christmas in your belly!

If I could somehow manage to get an IV drip of hot mulled wine, well then it would basically be Christmas to me all day, every day.  C’mon now… who DOESN’T want that?  Boozy, Christmas-y, happiness, pumped directly into your veins.  Yea, gimme that.  Hot mulled wine is a necessary part of the holidays for […]

Gluten-free yummies made in a blender!

Smother my life in pesto, please.

Guys.  I grew something.  I put seeds in the ground, added water, and something grew.  It grew for more than a week.  I cared for it and it didn’t die almost immediately.  This is monumental. It’s not that I usually kill my plants- I actually ALWAYS kill my plants.  I can’t so much as keep […]

Blog friends, I must apologize, I haven’t posted in ages. Never fear, I’m going to make it up to you… with video. A girlfriend of mine came over the other night and filmed me cooking, and then in an interview about the blog. It’s adorable, horrifying, lisp-y, and me at my very finest… drinking wine […]
