I see a lot of bloggers posting Menu Plans on Mondays.  They come up with a weekly dinner plan and post for their readers.

I need someone to not only plan my meals for me but tell me how to make it … [Read more...]

You guys.  This dinner was EPIC.  I am not even exaggerating, I think this may have been one of the best meals I have ever made at home.  I'm not even kidding.

I came across this Lime, Yoghurt & Olive Oil Cake via Pinterest and Souvlaki for the Soul a couple of weeks ago. I thought it looked delish and made my own similar adaptation to it last night and it was a huge hit! I had to share. It was just SO STINKING easy to make.

Note - this review is about a grocery delivery service that is currently only available in NYC, Jersey and the Philadelphia area.  If you aren't in those areas, imagine I am making a sad face for you right now!  Hopefully they will expand to your area sometime soon.

When I'm feeling organized, I use eMeals.com subscription based meal-planning service to feed the fam.  I had fallen off the organization wagon a bit the last few weeks with traveling and the unorganized summer days.

Harvard Sweet Boutique: Yummy Goodies in a Box – Score!

Sometimes there's just that person on your list who has everyone. In fact, maybe it's my "I have too much cr&p in my house" attitude but lately I'm all about giving gifts that are either gift cards or something that isn't going to take up a significant amount of space. Or something that anyone can enjoy that's disposable - like FOOD! Most … [Read more...]
