Pasta Fagioli Soup For Real

Pasta Fagioli Soup For Real

Aight y’all. Things are about to get real around here. Fo rizzles. For real. Last night when I was making this soup, I forgot to “blog it.” Forgot to take pictures of the process and pretty pictures of the final product. Instead, here’s what dinner really looks like. No, we don’t actually eat most meals … Continue reading

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches

Cooking steak on the stove scares me! In the past, I’ve had a couple bad experiences that ended with overcooked, leathery stove-topped steaks, and that frequently causes me to doubt my ability to cook any beef that isn’t ground beef on the stove. Typically the non-ground beef consumed in this household is either grilled outdoors … Continue reading

Bloody Mary or Mimosa

About one month ago, the huz and I visited Saline to redeem a Living Social deal at a restaurant that was new to us – Brecon Grille. Last time we went for dinner and beer. This time – we went for brunch and morning cocktails! We had another Living Social deal, and this time it … Continue reading

Holla! How’s the weekend goin’? I hope you’re not getting too bored reading yet another post about our a meal at Sidetrack. I don’t know, if you’re like me, I really like looking at pictures of scrumptious food – and that is what this post offers. For the first time, we tried Sidetrack’s queso dip … Continue reading

Raspberry Pancakes and Handbags

Raspberry Pancakes and Handbags

I have been positively obsessed with raspberries for the past few weeks. Mostly because they are the only organic berries I’ve encountered in my grocery so far this year, but also because they are probably my favorite fruit. I eat them atop my Greek yogurt nearly daily. Yesterday morning I plopped a few into my … Continue reading

Quinoa with Dried Cherries and Pistachios

Quinoa with Dried Cherries and Pistachios

Quinoa is something I’ve eaten only a couple times before, and something that I have never cooked myself, until this week. Quinoa (which is commonly referred to as a whole grain but is actually a seed!) -  seems to be one of the “in” foods of the moment and for good reason. It is basically … Continue reading

Happy Birthday Huz

Happy Birthday Huz

This past Tuesday it was the huz’s birthday! His pre-birthday weekend requests may have involved his favorite thing ever – fried chicken. Request obliged. Did you know we had fried chicken on our first date? Now you know. And some pie, whose picture turned out really freaky. Free pie, in fact, from Grand Traverse Pie … Continue reading

Butternut Squash Lasagna

Butternut Squash Lasagna

This past weekend I finally made one of the recipes I found in Cooking Light and have had bookmarked for months – Butternut Squash Lasagna! It also ended up being one of the more time-consuming recipes I’ve ever made. Luckily most of the steps were pretty fun. One of my favorite ways to spend a … Continue reading

The event tickets we purchased provided six drink tickets that could be redeemed at any of the eight different downtown establishments, between 7:00-10:00 PM, including: Babs’ Underground Black Pearl Café Felix La Dolce … Continue reading

Cake Nouveau Valentine’s Dessert Tasting

Cake Nouveau Valentine’s Dessert Tasting

As promised, I am back to tell you about the Six-Course Dessert tasting that the huz and I attended last evening for Valentine’s Day at Cake Nouveau. This was my first time visiting Cake Nouveau and it is beyond CUTE inside – bold, funky, brightly-covered décor everywhere. Loved it! Even the bathroom was cute. I … Continue reading
