Surf-N-Turf With Homemade Mashed Potatoes

It's the weekend, I just got paid, and the hubby and I just crossed a major item off our 2019 adulting to-do list: We bought out the lease on his car so that our 5-year plan involves no more car payments.

Weekend Brunch and The Accomplishment Of A Pretty Omelet!

Today, I had to go to the office for a planning meeting. We… Continue reading Why Buy Expensive Salad When Olive Garden dressing Is Sold In Stores?

Hello Fresh! Final Meal And Official Review: Pork Poblano Tacos

Well, I've just completed my third and final meal from my trial week of Hello Fresh. This recipe includes a sour cream topping but I omitted that part because I can't eat sour cream. I've made tacos before with beef, turkey and chicken but I've never made them with pork. It's a rich meat and… Continue reading Hello Fresh! Final Meal And Official Review: Pork Poblano Tacos
