Peach Iced Tea Pops

Peach Iced Tea Popsicles

It was necessary to get in one more popcicle recipe before I start thinking about winter coats, gloves, chattering teeth, and frozen toes...shoveling my way out of a warm, snuggly house to go to work...wind whipping through 14 balloon-like layers only to stab my skin like a million needles...ugh okay now I'm thoroughly depressed. Thanks a lot, popcicles. Good going. Sorry you had to witness ... [ Read More ]

The Great Cape Cod Cosmo

Cape Cod Cosmo - love this drink served over ice or as a cosmopolitan. Extra lime! My favorite alcoholic beverage!

Last week, I was slurring my words and drooling. Oh, you thought it was because I had a front tooth removed? No, no, no. It's because I was drinking this little ol' drinky-drink, the Cape Cod Cosmo. And yes it did help me forget about the giant hole in my face, but it didn't help my photography skills. These Cape Cod drink you say...subpar. I wish I could blame ... [ Read More ]

Life Is Like A Box Of Chthocolaths

Life is Like A Box of Chthocolaths - toothless and not loving it!

Every tooth in a man's head is more valuable than a diamond. ~ Miguel de Cervantes Thith ith a vfery drue sthtathment. That's how I've been talking these days since I got my front, top, center tooth pulled (#8 for those who keep track). Yeah, dead center. [cue: I Feel Pretty music] If you're wondering why (and you should be because what lunatic would just volunteer to have a front tooth ... [ Read More ]

Pork Chops With Honey Lime Cilantro Sauce

Pork Chops with Honey Lime Cilantro Sauce - out of this world recipe!

I've been on a cilantro kick and I can't be stopped. If you're one of those cilantro haters, I regret to inform you that this won't be my last cilantro recipe.

It'll be all controversial and stuff. Yeah. Take that, politics. No, ... [ Read More ]

Sticky Rice With Cilantro and Sweet Caramelized Onions


So this happened. We're eating this delicious sticky rice with this sauce, binge watching Silicon Valley, and my husband, out of nowhere, totally starts flirting with me. As he was happily scarfing down his second helping of this cilantro and caramelized-onion-infused goodness, he told me that I make the best rice he's ever had (whoa) and he loves all of my rice variations. Did you hear ... [ Read More ]

Honey Lime Cilantro Sauce

Honey Lime Cilantro Sauce - this recipe is great with pork, chicken, steak, and on salads!

I spent more time trying to adequately name this sauce than actually making it. Making sauce = 5 minutes Naming sauce = an embarrassing amount of time that discloses my indecisiveness This Honey Lime Cilantro Sauce could be called Fix Your Food Sauce because it's bound to help anything you pour it over (chicken, steak, pork, fish). It could also be called Honey Lime Vinaigrette because it's ... [ Read More ]

10 Kitchen Items I Can’t Live Without

10 Kitchen Items I Can't Live Without

Today, I thought I'd share with you a few kitchen items that I just can't live without. I mean, if I was stranded on a deserted island, I would certainly perish without them. Oh right, there won't be any food to cook on the island. Coconuts maybe? Who cares. While I'm starving and wasting away on the island, I can "pretend" I'm cooking. It'll give me something to do instead of talking to ... [ Read More ]

Mom’s Luscious Lemon Cake


I've been off the grid the past few weeks. It's been a whirlwind of activity with all the cake eating. There's the chewing. And the savoring. The lusting. I mean it takes time, ya know? My mom was here visiting from Arizona for 10 days and we wore ourselves out antiquing and eating this lemon cake for days while binge watching Grace and Frankie on Netflix. Okay the truth. She wore herself ... [ Read More ]
